The-Dream dishes on Rihanna & Chris Brown collaboration ‘It was Ri’s idea’

As we reported earlier this week, Rihanna released the remix to ‘Birthday Cake’ featuring her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.  While the song has a lot of fans happy that the two have moved past the 2009 assault incident, others are outraged by the collaboration between the two stars.

It was no surprise to hear that super producer The-Dream was responsible for penning ‘Cake’ (he was also behind Rihanna’s hit ‘Umbrella’ – in which he made a staggering $15 million off of in royalties).

Sway of MTV’s Rap Fix, sat down and chopped it up with The-Dream this week as he promoted his upcoming project and he dished on how the actual record (which started as an interlude) came about as well as Rihanna’s decision to put Chris on the track. He also posed the question to critics: ‘How do we proclaim to be a nation of forgiving, and we go by all of these rules and everything, but we can’t actually do it?’
