The pair teamed up for a remix of the track that dropped earlier this morning on New York City radio station Z100. “In order to do a remix, it had to be major,” Rihanna explained to morning show host Elvis Duran during an interview just after the song’s premiere. “I asked my fans last week who they really wanted me to collaborate with, and Britney was one of the most popular names. Britney doesn’t do features, and it was really amazing that she wanted to be a part of this song.” Check out the track after the jump.

The remix doesn’t do much to the song (it’s the same beat with the same melody and lyrics), but it does add Spears’ unmistakable voice to the mix.
What do you think: Does Britney kick it up a notch or was it better off left alone? Let us know in the comments below.
