Rihanna talks of an already done remix with Drake for her new/2nd single “What’s My Name” off her upcoming “Loud” album.
The collaboration wasn’t one of those studies in industry politics where labels arrange two stars for the sake of an on-trend hit.
Instead, Rihanna handled it personally, and invited Drake to jump on the track, which will appear as a bonus track on her upcoming “Loud” album.
“She played the record to Drake backstage somewhere to try to get him on a verse,” producer Tor Erik Hermansen of Stargate who has worked with the singer on her forthcoming fifth album told Billboard magazine. “She’s calling me up saying, ‘Where are the files?… That’s one thing you don’t hear often from artists on her level.”
Riahanna explained herself and Drake has been attempting to team up for a while and that she wanted Drake’s signature swagger for the track.
“Drake is the hottest rapper out right now and we’ve always been trying to work together,” she said. “He’s the only person I thought could really understand the melody of the song, and the minute he heard it he said, ‘I know exactly what I’m going to do. I love it.’ And he did it like three days later.”
She also revealed that they maybe shooting a video for the remix too.
