R&B singer Rihanna, who is gearing up to reissue her hit CD âGood Girl Gone Bad,â will be joining forces with Maroon 5 on a remake of “If I Never See Your Face Again.” “We’re both re-releasing our albums â mine’s out June 17,” Rihanna told MTV News. “This is the only collaboration on my re-release, because I always wanted to work with Maroon 5. They’re one of my favorite bands. When they called me to do this record with them, I was so honored.” “If I Never See Your Face Again” was originally the lead track on Maroon 5’s 2007 effort, âIt Won’t Be Soon Before Long.â “The song was basically done, but we wanted to try something different, so we had her come in and do bits and pieces,” Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine added. “It came together so quick. The only other collaboration I had done before was with Kanye, and it was the same way. It sounds cheesy, but if the magic is there, if the chemistry is there, you don’t even have to think about it.” The track will appear on reissues of both artists’ albums. A spokesperson for Rihanna’s label, Island Def Jam, confirmed that the reissue of her Good Girl Gone Bad album will hit stores June 17.
