We’ve been hearing about this record for a minute now, and Rihanna has decided to drop it out of the blue on her website today. For now, you’ll have to head there to listen to the acoustic guitar-led record. Early reports suggested that the song would land on the Kanye record, but the fact that it showed up on RiRi’s site rather than Ye’s suggested it may have jumped ship to R8.
The song is certainly a departure for both Kanye and Rihanna, once again bearing the influence of Sir Paul we heard on “Only One”. The easy-listening direction of Ye’s new work likely won’t sit all that comfortably with fans looking for Yeezus 2, but if there’s anything we know about Kanye it’s that his moves truly can’t be predicted.
