Rihanna & Chris Brown Are Telling Their Fans, 'We're Back Together,' In The Most Powerful Way They Can — With Their Music

Tue, February 21, 2012 3:05pm EST by 31 Comments

Rihanna and Chris Brown gave what they saw as a birthday present to their fans yesterday — the release of remixes of two of their songs, which tell us why they are so in love again.

It was Rihanna’s birthday yesterday, Feb. 20, and the birthday girl couldn’t wait to make it a special day in a way that no one would ever have foreseen three years ago, after then-boyfriend Chris Brown subjected her to  brutal beating.

But first, Chris Brown tweeted a birthday message to the woman he clearly still loves, “Happy Birthday ROBYN!” to which she replied: “Thanks!”

Then came the big gift — first Rihanna tweeted her remix of “Birthday Cake” with Chris on vocals and then tweeted the remix of Chris Brown’s new single “Turn Up the Music” which she had lent her vocals, too.

The message couldn’t have been clearer to the world: we’re a couple again and we’re saying it in the strongest way that we know how — through our music.

“They are both powerful artists and music is what they are passionate about so using music to communicate with their fans is the most passionate statement they can make,” believes celebrity relationship expert, Cooper Lawrence, author of the new novel, The Yoga Club. 

I absolutely agree. This pair lives, breathes and eats music. It’s second nature for them to express their feelings through their songs. And in this case, the lyrics that Chris Brown wrote to sing on Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” couldn’t have been clearer. “Girl, I wanna f*** you right now. Been a long time. I been missin your body … give it to her in the worst way. Can’t wait to her blow her candles off.”

Rihanna returns the hot favor on the couple’s remix of “Turn Up the Music.”

“Turn up the music, cause I feel a little turned on. Turn up the music, don’t you try to turn me down. Turn up the music, can I feel it just a little more. Turn up the music, turn me up and take me down,” Rihanna sings.

Listen, this isn’t a couple that is comfortable issuing press releases about their relationship. They aren’t going to release a “statement” about their love. This is what they’ve done instead.

“It’s absolutely a public statement that they’re together and that Rihanna thinks it’s time for her fans to forgive Chris,” believes Cooper Lawrence.

She thinks that if we, her fans,  can accept the songs they did together, then it will be easier to accept them as a couple.

Chris Brown’s mother/manager Joyce Hawkins is absolutely echoing that message.

“Leave those young people alone!!! Let them live their lives and go live yours!!!” she tweeted yesterday, Feb. 20, on Rihanna’s birthday.

Well forgiving and moving on is just fine, but let’s sure pray that this pair has both had enough counseling — individually and together — to truly move on and not end up back in an abusive relationship.

Let’s hope lust hasn’t displaced every shred of common sense.

“They’re both hot for each other. Sexually attracted and it’s obvious that they want to be together again,” agrees relationship expert to the stars, Dr. Gilda Carle. “And make-up sex is the hottest you can get. But let’s hope that he’s learned in therapy how to control his temper and that she’s learned not to  push his hot buttons.”

Dr. Jeff Gardere,  a contributor to HealthGuru.com, also worries that the pair hasn’t invested in the therapy they need.

“They could shut people up if they announced they were together, but said they would be getting couples counseling,” he points out.

Totally agree. This pair is clearly just so caught up in the heat they are feeling for each other. They had a real connection, a real relationship that was meaningful to them before it ended in horror. Now they are singing “let’s do it tonight and do whatever is takes to make it right,” in the remix of “Turn Up the Music.”

So the question is: does “making it right” only have to do with satisfying their lust or is it about also making their whole relationship “right”?

For both their sakes — their health and their careers — it better be, the whole relationship ?

Rihanna certainly seems to believe so. Her last words on Chris’s song couldn’t be clearer: “I love you baby.”

Talk about singing your heart out!

First off, this is sick. No woman in her right mind who had been abused would take her abuser back. Rihanna needs to toss him to the curb. He’ll do it again. I may seem angry but that’s because I am, I have been in Rihanna’s shoes. I had an abusive boyfriend and I lived in fear. Chris Brown is and will always be an abuser. Forgiven or not, plain and simple.

Its beautiful to see 2 stars fall in love over and over again, but the danger in this kind of reunion is that they are only moved by infatuation rather than the real thing. The chance is definately wide that these couple will possibly fall apart again, my only prayer is that it should not end up brutally. Pls Brown,it will be better you continue with karrueche who seem to fit into your kind of temper, rather walking back into Rehannas life to smash it again.

It will be so sad but not so shocking when another bloody picture of her shows up again! Its just gross! He has a terrible dangerous temper and she is just letting him know what he did is forgivable. Lets hope next time he beats the sh*t out of her (and he will) she learns her lesson for good and is not killed!

Jessica, I agreed with you up until “Lets hope….” Lets not hope that another woman gets beat up. Any woman does not need to get the “sh*t” beat out of her, to learn a lesson. This situation is just sad.

I’m glad the two are doing what they want and following their heart. What Chris did wasn’t right but i believe he learned from his mistake. By far the best career move for both of them to collaborate on each others tracks. Who are we to say who they can’t and can love. Middle finger in the air# team breezy all the way and supporting the decision they both made.

She’s disgusting. In today’s society, these two should not be able to performance in that they both use disgusting, filthy gestures. If that’s music and recognition is giving to these two performers, shame on us. He’s a thug, she is and she is not a lady nor beautiful, rather piggy if I do say.

Seriously, it’s their life.Whatever happens with them is none of everyone elses business. if they end up getting back together.. oh well..you arent living their life.Everyone makes mistakes. thats the whole meaning of being human. Chris Brown (I think)deserves to be forgiven and Chris and Rihanna both deserve to be happy… and if THEY decide they want to be happy together, thats for them to decide, not everyone else… enough said..

I don’t believe it. I think he’s happy with karrueche tran aka his GIRLFRIEND.
I find Karrueche cuter too and its good that she’s not famous because she seems down to earth.

Really Jazmin101 …Keep my feeling to myself. Someone has to speak up for the millions of women and girls out there that do not have a voice and too afraid to speak up. By the way I have wonderful BF’s, and if I saw them in this situation, I would help them anyway possible. Victims see celebrities getting beat up and it makes them and the abusers think that is ok. Rhianna deserves better, than a man who would beat her up! Let’s not say this is ok people, there is nothing right about it.

If Rhianna gets back together with Chris she is one stupid woman. She is sending the wrong message to women and girls, that abuse is ok. No one, including her, should never forget that he beat her, a woman!!! She and anyone else that thinks that is ok, is wrong. There are many women who are beaten, degraded, and even killed on daily bases from men like that. Wake up people, men who beat will do it again and again. The Women who idolize Chris Brown and any other man who abuses woman (and children for that matter), should have their heads examined. I am NOT implying by the way that Chris Brown ever hit a child. I will not ever buy anything with Rhianna or Chris Brown attached to it. It sends the wrong message.
