Two of the biggest pop superstars have come together by demand. Rihanna and Britney Spears collaborate on Rihanna's "S&M" (Remix). Monday morning on 95 KVIC, we had the world premiere the new RiRi/Britney collaboration, just 24 hours after Rihanna teased her followers on Twitter with "a sexy collab comin' your way supa dupa soon.it's Britney!!!"
Spears then responded on her Twitter page with "You're such a tease! I like it, I like it."
You can listen to the remix on my website, www.joefriar.com, or the 95 KVIC Facebook page. The whole Rihanna/Britney team up started when RiRi asked her 4.4 million Twitter followers which artist they'd most like to see her collaborate with. The overwhelming answer was Britney Spears.
The two are happy with the result and Rihanna called Britney "gangsta" while Spears responded, "You ain't so bad yourself, honey."
