Rihanna and Drake’s studio hook-up “What’s My Name” seems to not only caught fans attention but peers as well. Once involved in a brief fling, they get playful on the track with Drake throwing some lady-loving rhymes and Rihanna baring all he needs to know to be her man. “I heard you good with them soft lips,” Drake raps. “Yeah, you know word of mouth/ The square root of 69 is 8-something/ Right? ‘Cause I’ve been trying to work it out/ Good weed, white wine, I come alive in the nighttime/ OK, away we go/ Only thing we have on is the radio/ Let it play, say you gotta leave, but I know you wanna stay.” Rihanna responds, “Not everybody knows how to work my body/ Knows how to make me want it/ But boy you stay up on it/ You got that something/ That keeps me so off balance/ Baby, you’re a challenge/ Let’s explore your talents.” She sings more in her next lines, “Hey, boy, I really want to see if you can go downtown with a girl like me/ Hey, boy, I really want to be with you, ’cause you’re just my type.” The newly-revealed song has been all over the web and apparently has been heard by Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. Despite his ill-fated romance with her, the R&B star praised the collaboration, writing on Twitter ” ‘what’s my name’ is a dope record!!! ( I see you deAn).” Both the original and remixed versions of “What’s My Name” are recorded for Rihannna’s November 16 album “Loud”. A music video for the original song has been filmed last month in New York, but according to a report on Ryan Seacrest’s blog, she will shoot another video possibly with Drake on October 28 for the revamped track.
