Her first visit to ABC’s The View may have ended on a sour note, but Susan Boyle will be pleased to learn that her offer of a collaboration with fiesty pop tart Rihanna was met with an exclaim of glee from the “Shut Up & Drive” singer.
RiRi’s worked with everyone from Eminem to Kanye West, but the star could hardly contain her excitement after learning of talent show sensation SuBo’s desire to blend their vocals on a charttopping duet. Boyle’s repertoire is largely showtunes and radio-friendly classics, but the YouTube star recently revealed that she’s open to the idea of an R&B collabo with Rihanna.
“There are certain types of music that you’re good at and certain types that you’re not,” the matronly Scottish singer, who rocked the stage on Britain’s Got Talent nearly two years ago, told The Toronto Sun last week. “I mean, would I be good at R&B? I suppose you never know. Maybe me and Rihanna could get together, I could dye my hair purple.”
Well, that’s certainly music to the ears of Rihanna.
“Hold up! I might be a lil late, but just heard that THEE SuBo wants to collab wit ME??!? I’m game, doesn’t get much cooler than this. #BOOM,” an ecstatic Rihanna Tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.
