Turns out the song was originally meant to be for Rihanna, but we all know RiRi doesn’t exactly need any more hit singles, so Rita claimed it. Well, first she changed the title from “I’m Ready For Ya” to “R.I.P,” then added Tinie Tempeh onto a verse and it’s like, basically an entirely new song, guys.
So now that we’ve given you a lesson in music history, it’s time to vote! This week’s Celeb Battle pits Drake’s version against Rita’s. Naturally we’ll have you take a listen to both below, then vote on whose you think is better. Oh, and be sure to tell us who you picked in the comments, too! Oh, and let us know if you think Rihanna should’ve gotten the song instead! Ok, we’re done. Get crackin’!
