"Birthday Cake" is a song by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna, from her sixth studio album Talk That Talk (2011). After it leaked onto the internet, fans expressed interest in the track being included on Talk That Talk, but it was later revealed that the 1:18 (one minute, 18 seconds) length that leaked was in fact the final cut and was not being considered for inclusion on the album. However, due to a high level of fan interest, the song was included on the album as an interlude.

"Birthday Cake"'s lyrics express Rihanna's desire to have spontaneous sex. Music critics were divided on "Birthday Cake", with the majority both praising and criticising the song's overt sexual lyrical content. Several critics compared the song to the previous track on the album "Cockiness (Love It)", which also consists of sexually suggestive lyrics. Upon the release of Talk That Talk, the song debuted on the lower regions of the singles charts in South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States. The full length version, featuring former boyfriend Chris Brown, premiered online on February 20, 2012 to fall in place with Rihanna's 24th birthday.

Remix featuring Chris BrownEdit

"Birthday Cake" was officially remixed with vocals from American recording artist Chris Brown, and is a full length version of the interlude which was originally included on Talk That Talk. It was released to radio as the fourth US single from the album on March 6, 2012. At first, it was rumored that Christina Aguilera would feature on the remix version after Rihanna posted a message on Twitter saying that she wanted someone "Dirrrty" on the re-recording, a supposed reference to Aguilera's 2002 song "Dirrty". However, the singer later tweeted that she wanted a male vocalist, not a female vocalist, to accompany her on the remix. It was later revealed that Brown was the featured artist on the full length version. Despite receiving negative attention regarding Rihanna's choice of collaborator from the media and fans alike, the singer defended her decision saying that it is simply music.

The remix of "Birthday Cake"'s lyrics are similar to the interlude, but with new lyrics provided by Brown. Critical reception of the collaboration was met with a mixed response from music critics, many of whom were shocked at the fact that Rihanna and Brown had collaborated on a song together despite their relationship history, but cited the remix as an improvement upon the original interlude. The remix peaked at number 24 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number two on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. American rappers Fabolous, Rick Ross and Busta Rhymes appeared on additional remixes of the song.

Damn, girl you pretty
Blowing out your candles, let me make a couple wishes

[Rihanna]
Remember how you did it?
Remember how you fit it?
If you still wanna kiss it
Come, come, come and get it
Sweeter than a rice cake, cake worth sipping
Kill it, tip it
Cake, fill it

If you sexy and you know it
And you ain't afraid to show it
Put a candle on my motherfucking back baby blow it
Love the way you do when you do it like that
Show up with the stats, bring the racks on my racks
Wrap it up, wrap it up boy

While I take this bow off
Talk that talk, yeah I know I'm such a show-off
Daddy make a wish
Put this cake in your face
And it's not even my birthday
