Rihanna revealed why she invited Chris Brown to appear on a remix of her song “Birthday Cake” to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this morning.

The 24-year-old singer did not address rumors about whether she and Brown had reunited, but did explain why she asked her controversial ex to be on the track. She told Seacrest that Brown was “the only person that, really, it made sense to do the record.”

Rihanna added that since she asked Brown to appear on one of her songs, she returned the favor and appeared on a remix of his song, “Turn Up the Music.”

“We did two records — one for my fans, one for his fans — and that way our fans can come together. There shouldn't be a divide, you know? It's music and it's innocent.”
