Rihanna celebrated her 24th birthday yesterday by dropping "Birthday Cake (Remix)," a sadomasochistic collaboration with abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
At just under four minutes long, "Birthday Cake (Remix)" is an uncomfortable trek into the former lovers' highly volatile and incredibly kinky personal lives. We learn that Chris Brown "wants to fuck [Rihanna] right now," even though the proverbial ball gag appears to be in Ms. Robyn Fenty's court.
If Breezy wants to "lick the icing off," he'll have to work for it.
"Ooo baby I like it/It's so exciting/Don't try to hide it/Imma make you my bitch," Rihanna sings on The-Dream and Da Internz-produced track, a not-so-subtle reference to the former couples' 2009 domestic violence fiasco.

Brown opens his verse with an uncharacteristically sweet declaration: "Girl I want to fuck you right now/Been a long time, I been missing your body."
Isn't he charming?
Be strong, Rhi-Rhi.
