Mario Forced To Explain Rihanna Mix Up

R&B singer Mario has spoken out about reports he has recorded an ironic new song with Rihanna, called EMERGENCY ROOM, explaining the track was just a demo he sent to the UMBRELLA star.
Comments Mario made during a TV interview following Rihanna's Sunday morning (08Feb09) fight with boyfriend Chris Brown have been misconstrued - making it look as if his upcoming vengeance song is the singer's next duet.
Ironically, Rihanna was in the emergency room seeking medical attention after her fight, but Mario insists reports she's recording Emergency Room with him are wrong.
The song has been leaked online - and appears to feature Rihanna, but Mario insists it's not her.
He tells Vibe magazine, "This was a rough cut that I was working on and wanted to present it to Rihanna and her record label.
"Those arent Rihannas vocals on the song at all. The record was far from done. Im still proud of the record and want to make sure the truth is out there."
Rihanna has returned to her native Barbados following Sunday's drama. She has cancelled two upcoming performances in Indonesia and Malaysia.
