The moment we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. Not only have we been gifted with a first taste of the music from Rihanna's new album, the first taste happens to be the Kanye West, Paul McCartney collaboration of lore.
FIRST GLIMPSE AT MY NEW MUSIC!!!---> http://t.co/8bsJSvxVp6— Rihanna (@rihanna) January 25, 2015
Rihanna, who is currently working on her eighth studio album premiered the song on social media via her website this weekend. The song, entitled "FourFiveSeconds", features McCartney on acoustic guitar while Kanye West raps in between Rihanna's own parts.
The track itself sounds like it could be the stripped back version of a club banger. The trio have abandoned the ubiquitous drum machines in favour of more laid back instrumentals.
This release comes after a month of speculation from impatient fans who have even resorted to wrongly attributing music to the Bajan singer.
You can listen to the song on iTunes now.
