Stop whatever you’ve been doing! Rihanna has just released a brand new song with Kanye West and Paul McCartney called “FourFiveSeconds”!
The song, off Ri’s forthcoming eighth studio album, is a departure from 2012’s Unaplogetic. A plucky acoustic guitar complements Rihanna’s vocals. “I think I’ve had enough/ Might get a little drunk/ I say what’s on my mind/ I might do a little time,” she sings on the opening lines of the track. “Cause all of my kindness/ Is taken for weakness.”
For Kanye’s part, he sings, “Woke up an optimist/ Sun was shining, I’m positive/ Then I heard you was talking trash/ Hold me back/ I’m about to spazz.”
Later, on the chorus, Kanye and Rihanna harmonize together, “Now I’m four, five seconds from wildin’/ And we got three more days ’till Friday/ I’m just tyring to make it back home by Monday morning.”

Ne-Yo has opened up about his recording sessions with Rihanna for her new album. The R&B singer and producer explained that while he’s unsure whether any of the tracks they’ve worked on together will make the final album, what he’s heard from the collection so far sounds “unlike anything else”.
“I’m doing lots of songwriting – that will never go away,” he told OfficialCharts.com “I’ve been focusing on a lot of new artists at the moment as opposed to established ones. That said, I did a few sessions with Rihanna not so long ago. We did some stuff for the R8 album. I don’t know what’s going to be kept and I don’t know what’s going to happen with it, but we definitely did a few sessions together.”Asked when can expect to hear the album, he said: “She’s enjoying life, man! She deserves it. The album will come out – it’ll be out soon enough. I personally feel like when it comes out, people will forget about how long the wait was. It’ll definitely be worth the wait. What I’ve heard so far sounds unlike anything else. It’s coming!”
Rihanna and Ne-Yo have previously collaborated on 2007’s “Hate That I Love You”, which peaked at Number 15 on the Official Singles Chart. The star has also penned Rihanna’s Top 10 singles “Unfaithful”, “Russian Roulette” and Number 1 single “Take A Bow”.

Tell us how do you like it!
There’s no word yet on when Rihanna will release her 8th studio album, but the songstress is doing quite the job playing the tease. After making a splash with her return to Instagram earlier this month, she’s made good use of the photo and video sharing app by reminding us of what we’d been missing.
Now RiRi has teased a new song on the site with a dark video with her echoing voice booming out, posted with the caption, “phuckin roun in da studio.”
There aren’t any tips on when we’ll ge to hear the full thing, or anything of the sort. You’ve got to hand it to her, she knows how to keep us waiting. Earlier today, she tweeted:
ANY news about #R8 will be delivered directly from me!!!!
Check out the sneak peek here:
Attention Navy! Rihanna has new music and we could be hearing it very soon. Watch the interview here.
“That’s my hope,” she said. “I’m really excited about the music that we’ve been working on, so I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
While making the press rounds, Rih didn’t rule out the possibility of a surprise album drop but kept tight-lipped on her exact plans for release.
Rihanna stepped out on Tuesday night as MAC’s Viva Glam Cosmetics ambassador, showing her support in the fight against AIDS at the premiere of Andrew Jenks’ new documentary It’s Not Over.
“[I’m] very excited, very honored [to be here],” she said. “This is gonna be an amazing event for an amazing cause, an amazing film. This documentary, It’s Not Over, is really gonna be educational for the youth [with] what’s going on and how they’re affected by HIV/AIDS all over the world.”
The film, which premieres on Netflix and Pivot on Nov. 19, follows three young people from different corners of the world who are affected by HIV/AIDS.
Rihanna has been keeping it quiet… until now! She won’t say when she plans to release new music but she is confident about what it sounds like.
“I can’t give you any hints of when it will drop. It’s going to be great, that’s all I’m going to tell you and I’m excited about it,” said the singer at a meet-and-greet Wednesday with fans at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The critic she is worried about is herself. “I try to battle myself and outdo everything I’ve done and that’s been the hardest thing to do. You start overthinking things at times,” she confessed. The 26-year-old typically has released albums in November in the past but wouldn’t comment on that. She just sad, “I can’t wait for everybody to hear (the music) little by little. … little by little. I can’t wait.”
Rihanna also brought along her new men’s fragrance, “Rogue Man,” her first for guys.
“I feel like what better way to get these people excited than to get them something nice, to smell good. They’re running around all day working hard. And, you know, the guys are sexy. They need to smell sexy.” She also joked about not having a “rogue man” of her own, saying with a wink, “hopefully I’ll find one here today on the base.”
