Rihanna’s “S&M” song was renamed by the UK’s BBC Radio 1 this weekend, without her consent! Just last week, they deemed the tune too hot for daytime, prohibiting airplay before 7 p.m.
The new song title was unveiled Sunday on the UK’s Top 40 Singles chart as “Come On.”
When a fan on Twitter asked about the new name, Rihanna responded: “Are you f—ing kidding me??? I’m on it!”
And she wasn’t joking. Just a day later, the two parties came to a compromise: the song is now listed as “S&M (Come On).”
When asked by another fan if she was OK with the change, she replied, “Absolutely Not!”
Below, hear the radio edit of “S&M,” in which the words, “sex,” “whips,” and “chains” have been taken out. SOURCE
