Rihanna strong-armed Will.i.am for Photographs song

Barbadian singer Rihanna has revealed that she once strong-armed will.i.am into giving her a song he had written for Black Eyed Peas, as the track perfectly captured how she felt after her split from Chris Brown.


London, Nov 28 : Barbadian singer Rihanna has revealed that she once strong-armed will.i.am into giving her a song he had written for Black Eyed Peas, as the track perfectly captured how she felt after her split from Chris Brown.

Rihanna, 21, who was about to finish her Rated R album, had been invited by will.i.am to his home to listen to a handful of his compositions, and after she heard the track 'Photographs', she refused to leave without it.

"I was in the studio 'cause it was the last night before we had to hand the album in and I was recording. I went back (to will.i.am's house) and he didn't really want to play it (Photographs) at first," the Daily Star quoted her as telling Fuse.TV.

"He was like, 'Ok, Rihanna's here now. You come to strongarm me?' But when I heard it, the story is so, so real and I was like, 'This is my story - why do you guys want this song? This is not (Black Eyed Peas' album) The Energy Never Dies, this is deep s**t!'

"Everybody knows that feeling that after a break-up, you just feel empty, like I just spent the last how many years in a relationship building this foundation and all I have left to show for it is some photographs, some memories.

"It was so personal and I felt it and I wasn't leaving the studio without it," she said.

The 'Umbrella' singer stayed put until 34-year-old will.i.am, real name William James Adams, gave in and let her record the track.

"It was like three hours long, we listened to the song over and over again and we just kind of stared each other down. And finally he said, 'OK, but you have to come on tour with us'," she revealed.

"When something is really important to me, I'll go to the end of the earth for it and that can be for anything but of course music is my first love so I'm very passionate about stuff like that and if I believe in a record enough, then I'll do anything.

"We didn't leave his house until 4am but it was worth it because now it's my favourite song on the album," she added.
