Rihanna and Chris Brown

Duet

Feel the Love

3/10/2009 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ now has all the details about the secret late-night recording sessions between Rihanna and Chris Brown -- and they were jam-packed with emotion and serious drama, with some playful touching -- seriously.

Duet
The whole thing came together when they decided to reconcile shortly after the attack. Sources tell us music producer Polow Da Don convinced both Chris and Rihanna to get in the studio and record a love song stat, stressing that timing was important because the heightened emotions would translate powerfully into the music.

Both Rihanna and Chris agreed and snuck in a couple of "late night" sessions that we're told were "very, very emotional ... the feeling in the room was pure love." Clearly, love hurts.

As for how they got along, they were "playfully touching each other."

We're told the song was originally written for Rihanna before the fight, but after the beat down the producer believed the track -- which ironically focuses on overcoming difficult challenges as a couple -- would be the perfect duet.

I can't believe the support CD and Rhianna are getting in my community. These are the same people who said OJ didn't do it. Sorry, but my people are out of it sometimes. To anyone who says I am an oreo, then yes, I am part of the oreo community who does not like or accept getting her ass beat by no one. Yes, I date outside of my race. From the likes of CB, you can understand why.

You know what scares me about the whole thing is that it reminds me of the Nicole Brown Simpson and O.J., when she was murdered and it came out the photos of her bruised face and body, the phone call to 911 with her trembling voice and him screaming in the background.

How we all thought what a great guy he was only to discover after her death what a monster he really is to this day.

I hope she comes out of what ever fog she is in because like it or not when you are in the public eye and a star to a young fan base your are a role model and she is sending a very bad message to young girls and boys.

God would everybody just shut up about this already, as if this is the first time a celebrity couple as faced this kind of thing.. Hello Whitney and Bobby,Madonna and Sean , Pam and Tommy Lee, Josh Brolin and Diane Lane...The list goes on...and for everyone saying he can't get over this , well it looks like we just gave Mr.Sean Penn an Oscar so i think he will be able to move forward. PEOPLE CAN OVERCOME THIS!! it seems like there are alot of close minded people on these boards who have forgotten about counseling and forgiveness. And As if this is any of our business. This should only be between Chris and Rhianna. I do not look to up celebrities as role models and for all you complainers saying ur kids look up to them...you need to parent them better and tell them what is right and wrong not let the TV do it for you. These people are just making a living and i do not think that they should suffer based on what goes on in their personal lives!!! IF i beat up my man i wouldn't be fired from my job cause they don't care!! I hope their single is good as it probably will be since most of their music is AWESOME!!!

First she finds out he's cheating on her, then she gets beat up for finding out, and now she's recording a duet with him that will go on HIS new album and get HIM more money. Way to teach him a lesson.
Good Girl Gone Bad? More like Good Girl gone MAD.

I wonder how all these people who "care" about her are able to look in the mirror.

Because they all know she's just as violent as him. Because they know what she did to her own brother. Because they know what she did to him is exactly what he did to her, only he had reached his limit and fought harder. If she hadn't started slapping & hitting him with his phone, none of this would have happened. Instead of her taking responsibility for her part in starting it, she has chosen to hide & be the coward...I mean victim. If she did to him what he did to her, would you all be saying the same thing? Or would you call him a punk because he called the cops. Think about it. She needs to learn how to control her own temper & jealousy, until then she needs to be by herself & get help for her own anger issues instead of dragging others down with her. Her family is not speaking out against him, because this isn't the first time she's slapped him & it won't be the last. Love & blackmail to stay in any relationship is truly pitiful & pathetic.

Blahhhhhh    

Chris Brown is the Rush Limbaugh of hip hop / R&B. Both are douches yet everyone takes back what they said against them and apologizes to these fools. Chris should go to jail period and his career should be OVER.

Who cares if they are staying together? Couples have physical fights EVERYDAY! We just don't hear about them because they are not amungst celebrities! Obviously she forgives him, so let them be and deal with their own business. I'm not saying what he did was right, but they have worked it out like adults do.

Why are people in the industry trying to push these two together? To save their own behinds, or destroy her career? Rihanna must be a very stressed out person at the moment. As Oprah says, she needs time away from Chris Brown to heal.

This is sick, sad & promoting the WRONG thing to young adults. Whether or not they view themselves as role models, they are! Many people look up to them for their talents, look and success. How exactly will "Feel the Love" translate to our misinformed youth after this beating...that real love "feels" like of several slams to the head?! Or how about men, like Chris, who were never taught to cope with their rage...that they don't need to deal with it as long as they reconcile (...that they can even profit from it)? This song promotes domestic abuse (as well as their participation in the kid's choice awards)!! With all the growing problems in the America, this is NOT what this country needs to promote right now! Haven't a few men already off'ed their entire families in the name of "love"?! I hope the industry can "FEEL" the lawsuit they get when some kid accidentally kills his girlfriend with a mean right hook and a head lock.

I said i wouldntt post anymore on this topic....but i'm ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS AND CANNOT BELIEVE SOME OF THE POSTS ON HERE?? She was OBVIOUSLY MORE than JUST A LITTLE PISSED OVER THE TEXT MSGE.....and NO she should NOT HAVE SLAPPED HIM.....BUT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD....she did NOT DESERVE to be BEATEN LIKE THAT??? Have you seen the photos....and they are apparently MILD compared to the rest taken by the cops (as reported by TMZ?) NO MARKS were on him...UNLIKE HER FACE WHICH TOTALLY CORROBORATES THE POLICE REPORT!! As for those who are supposedly PROTECTING HER...the ONLY THING THEY ARE PROTECTING IS THE INSIDE LINERS OF THIER POCKETS!! Anyone defending such a BRUTAL ACT is just as bad as CHRIS BROWN....maybe if you ever find yourself on the END of such a PUMMELLING....you MAY JUST CHANGE YOUR MIND??? As i said before.....NEITHER OF THEM GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE YOUNG KIDS OUT THERE WHO LOOK TO THEM...THATS WHO I REALLY WORRY ABOUT!!!!
