After appearing on Rihanna’s Unapologetic album on the single “Nobody’s Business,” Chris Brown revealed to MTV News that his girlfriend will appear on his upcoming project X, on a record called “‘Put It Up.” So, naturally, we asked if there was a chance of a Chris Brown and Rihanna EP arriving in the future?
“[That] might be crazy,” Brown responded, laughing. “You gotta wait though. X and then you get the Rihanna and Chris Brown album!”With a few collaborations already under their belt, and another upcoming, it doesn’t seem too far fetched. Would you be excited for a Chris Brown and Rihanna EP? Hit the poll to vote.
“We did ‘Nobody’s Business’ for her album, and then I wrote a song, it’s called ‘Put It Up.’ It’s more of an R&B record,” Brown explained of their latest track. “I wanted to do an R&B record with Rihanna because I didn’t want it to be the same four-on-the-floor, pop. At the end of the day, that’s what they expect from us, so I wanted to do more of a record that nobody really heard her sing on as far as that genre.”
He added that the song will be “youthful and at the same time sexy,” and in regards to the title: “You know what ‘It’ is, so just ‘put it up.’ ”
As far as the recording process, Chris says that they’re both on the same level when it comes to creating. “Me, I’m in the studio like [a] ball of energy; I don’t really write … I never write, it’s all off of what’s up here,” he revealed. “Whether it be rapping or me singing, I’ll go sing a melody, come up with a concept and write it that fast and we’ll knock out the song in like an hour. … With her work ethic, it’s the same — she’s just as liberal and vibrant. She goes in the studio and it’s easy for her, like it’s nothing.”
“I remember she was doing her album and I was at the crib one day, and she was just recording in the house … and she was just sitting there, the TV was going — [the sound] was off — but she was sitting there with the headphones, singing at the top of her lungs.”
