Get ready, world. 50 Cent and Chris Brown have recorded their first collaboration.

 

The song, called “Lighters,” was produced by Los Angeles DJ Felli Fel, who spoke recently with Rap-Up.com. “I just did 50 Cent’s new record with Chris Brown,” he said. “It was supposed to be my record. I produced it, me and Chris wrote it. He sings the hook and did a verse as well.”


Fel says the song will appear on 50's long-delayed upcoming album. “I meticulously put these two together because I realized they never did a record together and I found that odd,” he said. “50 loved the record, and the next day I get a call from [50’s manager] Chris Lighty saying, ’50 wants the record.’ I was kinda torn because it was one of those bittersweet things. I knew what we had with this record.”


Felli, who produced the 2007 club hit “Get Buck in Here,” featuring Diddy, Akon, Ludacris and Lil Jon, is setting his sights high with “Lighters.”

“It’s probably going to be the biggest record I’ve ever done,” he said.
