Makeba Riddick stepped off a plane in New York City, exhausted after spending weeks in London working with the Black Eyed Peas, only to get a call from her manager. The record label needed Riddick to fly to Milan immediately and cut a song with pop star Rihanna. The song, "Live Your Life" — a single for the rapper T.I., featuring Rihanna, was almost finished, but the label wanted Riddick to write Rihanna's lyrics and help guide the young singer through her verse. Riddick threw a mini-temper tantrum, then took a deep breath and reluctantly boarded a plane.
