Talk about an awesome — if awkward — honor. [artist id="2814953"]Soulja Boy Tell'em[/artist] revealed to MTV News this week that he will have the unique distinction of appearing on the upcoming albums by both [artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist] and [artist id="1940303"]Rihanna[/artist].
"With this particular project [it was] like, 'Whoa!' because it was like, 'Yo, I need you to do something for Rihanna's album. You got 11 hours. Go," Soulja Boy said about the last-minute call to work on an unspecified track from Rihanna's upcoming Rated R disc.
"It was like, 'What?' " The challenge, he said, was how to cook up some verses that would help make a #1 hit in such a short time. Luckily, he had plenty of experience with working fast, thanks to the 30 minutes he said it took him to write his breakthrough hit, "Crank That."
The pressure was not as intense when he got the call to guest on a track from Rihanna's ex, Brown. "I got nothing but love for Chris, that's my homeboy," said Soulja of the singer, whose Graffiti will be his first release since his assault on Rihanna in February. "He called me up and he was like, 'Yo, I need you on this song for my album. Will you come through?' "
The answer, of course, was yes — and the result is a tune titled "She's Bad."
"My approach to it was, if me and Chris Brown ever did a song together it got to be the best song ever," he said. "When people hear it, it gotta be automatic, be in all the kids' heads, all the girls definitely gotta love it, all the females gotta love it. That was my approach to it. I was just thinking, 'What is the slickest lines I could say to a female to make them fall in love with this record?' "
Fans can hear the results when Rated R drops on November 23 and Graffiti is released three weeks later.
