Who's the big "surprise" guest spot on RiRi's "Birthday Cake"? It's anyone's guess
Almost two weeks ago, I commented on a report in the NY Post that hinted at a Christina Aguilera guest spot on Rihanna's remix version of "Birthday Cake" (Will Christina soon be licking the icing off Rihanna's "Birthday Cake?"). Rihanna tweeted her followers a couple of weeks back:
I put collaborator on it, who would u wanna see lick the icing off????? #CAKE...I need somebody #DIRRRTY on my Birthday #CAKE ;) lol.
Of course, the folks at the Post and many others would have believed it to be "Dirrrty" singer Christina. Since that time, though, the rumors have been swirling up big time about this 'surprise' guest spot on the album, and X-Tina's name hasn't come up again. Instead,the biggest name being thrown around is none other than Chris Brown, RiRi's infamous ex. Brown's name began to circulate after Rihanna's production team, Da Internz, tweeted that the featured guest vocal on the track would "shock the world."
Of course, that would definitely be a shock, especially after what transpired between the two a little over three years ago. In the week surrounding the Grammy Awards, at which they both performed, it was reported that Brown had attended Rihanna's birthday party, and so came the fuel for the rumors.
There have been reports on both sides of this story, with and without Brown guesting on the track, but Da Internz confirmed via another tweet that it would not be Chris Brown featured on the song. At this point, it's all just speculation. We'll just have to wait for the song to be released to find out who the guest vocalist will really be, which could come as early as this week. I'm still pulling for Christina...or Madonna...Nicki Minaj, maybe, lol...
