Rihanna Almost Dismissed Eminem’s Request
The rapper wanted to make a sequel of their hit single…
Apparently RiRi thought the first version was fine the way it is.
She told MTV News US: "When I first heard the idea about doing a part two, I was just completely against it. I just felt like you couldn't beat the original. There's no way you can outdo that, so why compete with it? We heard a broken-down version that was stripped down, just piano. That's going to be a bonus on iTunes.
“I fell in love with it. We recorded it, then we did another version to the stripped-down version with drums, then we did another version with drums and Eminem. And then that was the one that just felt really good."
