Today Rihanna released the follow-up single to here Top 5 smash hit “FourFiveSeconds” featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney with a new exciting track titled “Bitch better Have My Money”. Unlike the prior folk-felt single, Rihanna turns-up on this one! “Turn up to Rihanna while the whole club fu**in’ wasted / Everytime I drop, I am the only thing ya playin’,”, she raps over the clean production. Her forthcoming eighth studio album, dubbed R8 by the Rihanna Navy, has produced “FourFIveSeconds”, “American Oxygen” and “Higher”.

I find that when I get on stage now, I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs. They don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.” RIhanna is schedule to perform at the 2015 iHeartRadio Awards this Sunday! Check out Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” below!
