It wes just your average, ordinary, no big deal Saturday night last night and then Rihanna was like “I think this weekend needs to be way more amazing. Let me drop a new single featuring a whole bunch of amazing guest stars like Paul McCartney and Kanye.”
“FourFiveSeconds,” in addition to featuring Kanye (doing vocals) and Paul (rocking the keyboard), also utilizes the talents of rapper Ty Dolla $ign and the Dirty Projectors‘s frontman Dave Longstreth.
If you’re not a hardcore RiRi fan (and if you’re not a hardcore RiRi fan, what are you even doing with your life???) then you might not understand exactly what is so flipping thrilling about this single. The United States of Rihanna have been patiently waiting for a new song from our First Lady of Amazing since 2012’s “Unapologetic” (which gave us classics like “Diamonds” and “Stay.”) We’ve been waiting for new jams for a LONG time (Ri has been working on her upcoming LP since 2013) and we are way too excited about a new Rihanna song.
You can download the new jam here, you’re welcome, now go turn the volume all the way up and have the best Sunday ever.
