Good news to all Rihanna fans all over the world! The singer dropped yesterday what seems to be the first single of her upcoming eighth studio album rumored to be called #R8. The song is a collaboration with rapped Kanye West and british legend Paul McCartney.
I’m very shocked with the song and I still don’t know wether I like it or hate it. It has a big country influence and that’s what turns me off. It’s a ballad with very simple instrumentation and though I love Riri’s vocals on the song I don’t like Kanye’s singing voice. I think he’s a good rapper and I love many of his Rap songs, especially his previous collaborations with Rihanna, but this one is really weird in my opinion!
I love that she’s getting out of her comfort zone and she’s experimenting with different styles, but for now I’m not much into the song. It’ll probably grow on me, but I don’t think I will be including this in my favorite Riri songs of all time.
I hope this is just a single and she’s going on another direction for the rest of the album. I can’t wait for her to release more music and to see how the full album looks like!!
You can download the song from iTunes if you haven’t listened to it yet! If you have, let me know what you think in the comments!
