Birthday Cake Song

Rihanna's fantastic Birthday Cake Song is written with that extra fun and saucy factor, great for any birthday bash! The following article discusses and includes the background behind the song and the lyrics as well as a Youtube clip of her video.


The ‘Birthday Cake’ song was sung by the famous recording artist Rihanna which was originally from the 2011 Album 'Talk That Talk. The song was accidently released onto the internet early and fans received it really well making sure that the song which is only one minute and 18 seconds long was included on the Album as an interlude.

However the newer version of the Birthday Cake song was released in 2012 which also included Rihanna’s then controversial boyfriend Chris Brown. The song coincided with Rihanna’s 24th birthday and reached the top 50 of the US billboard charts. The song’s underlying theme featured strong sexual innuendo in which critics either lauded or shunned.

This particular version was recorded in the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Copenhagen Denmark. It was written by The-Dream, Rihanna, Marcos Palacios and Earnest Clark.


The following was written by The-Dream who co-produced the song, but was hit hard by negative comments written by obsessed fans over the non-release of the song on the Album Talk That Talk.

Birthday Cake Song Quote from The-Dream
I was just talking to Rihanna about that, because she [originally] made [just] an interlude. I was like, 'Your fans are going to be so mad at you.' As soon as I said that, I got back, and I guess she released a piece of it, and they saw how long it is. Man, they tore me up on Twitter! So I hit her on the phone. I was like, 'Yo, your fans, they're going crazy on me right now, like I could make you do something.' So 'Birthday Cake' is on there. It's going to turn into a whole song because the fans are ganging up on me, and I don't want to be murdered by the Rihanna Navy!.

Rihanna performed this song for the first time on May 5 2012 on the show Saturday Night Live. The audience themselves sang the interlude. A remix of the song was included on her ‘Diamonds World Tour in 2013.’ The Birthday Cake Song became a hit due to Rihanna's audience and the remixing of the song into a longer version.
