Wow! We had thought they had abandoned this entirely!
Back before Rihanna had released Loud in 2010 she was quoted claiming that she and Katy Perry were going to work on a track together, and said:
"We want to get in the studio and hopefully make something for this album [Loud], who knows - or maybe for her re-release. We want to do something together for sure."
And that was the end of it - until now!
Apparently, just because these girls haven't been talking about it to the press doesn't mean it hasn't still been in the works, because two years - and two albums - later, Rihanna has revealed:
“We have been working on this for years. We still are trying to make a song together. She is one of my favorite musicians, as well as one of my favorite people in the industry. [Katy is] very uncalculated, very sure of herself, and that’s something very rare in this industry to find. The song will probably come out in a while. I won’t say that it’s happening right now, but it’s going to happen.”
We're just glad to hear it's happening!
Take all the time you two need - because when it happens, we want it to be EPIC!
