Rihanna's fans rounded on Calvin Harris after learning the pair was working on a track together, warning the DJ the song "better not be rubbish".
The Umbrella hitmaker has teamed up with Harris for new tune We Found Love, and the beatmaker admits the Bajan beauty's online followers were initially wary of the collaboration.
He tells Britain's Capital FM, ''It was crazy, all the fans on Twitter. Tweeting me saying, 'The song better not be rubbish' before they heard it. There was some mild threatening nature to them, but it's all part of the fun.
"She sounds great on it. I love the tune. Loved it for a while and I'm glad that it's out there finally."
