Agreed. Rihanna should have released the remix but with her singing Chris Brown's vocals. The performance of it at Hackney was great. It going #24 on the BB hot 100 and #2 on the R&B charts shows with no video and no promotion shows the hype. Still, from a business standpoint Def Jam racked up $$ for 800,000 downloads of a 1 minute song.truthless wrote:I dare to say that Birthday Cake Remix could have reached the top spot on Billboard Hot 100. The hype was so huge, so that Birthday Cake (Interlude) flew up inside the top 50.
A missed opportunity.

Talk That Talk actually was "released" in some countries already, it got radio support but because she wasn't able to shoot a video because Jay wasn't available and she basically let it die by releasing BK and not doing much after it worldwide, it didn't do a thing.Tom92 wrote:I also think that "Talk That Talk" could be a much bigger hit with a video.
