Ready for R8?

Remember at the start of the year when everyone thought there would be new Rihanna album by summer? All the signs were there. "Leaked tour documents", a potential Yeezy tour, and some pretty tight singles made the start of the year a strong one for the singer. 

But output inevitably slowed down, as is the case with unfinished records. Rihanna's various campaigns and film soundtracks have likely also slowed down the process. 

As if to signal Rihanna's progress on the new record, one of Rihanna's producers, Mitas, has posted snippets of a song believed to feature on R8


but maybe I should take this down....#mitusbeats #thedeepend

Mitas has not confirmed or denied whether the track is a Rihanna track, but he is the producer behind the Rihanna X Dior collaboration.

Parts of the track resemble Jack U's "Where Are U Now" which is not usually Rihanna's signature style.

What do you guys think? If this is Rihanna, is this the music you want to hear on R8?
