Earlier this month Rihanna teased fans with a snippet of #R8 dubbed single “American Oxygen”. Over the weekend, the 27 year-old pop singer debuted the anticipated track at the March Madness Festival. Shortly after, RiRi took advantage of the new Tidal Music platform to debut the single. “Every breath I breathe we chasin’ this American dream! We sweat for a nickel and a dime, Turn it into an empire,” she sings, before declaring, “This is the new America! We are the new America.” The Barbadian beauty tackles the American Dream on the inspirational track. In addition to this track comes hit-single, “FourFiveSeconds”, the smooth ballad “Higher” and the ratchet, club-banger, “Bitch Better Have My Money”. “I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years; I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years,” Rihanna told MTV News. “Not any songs that were burnt out. 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.” Although there is no release date, #R8 is well on it’s way! Check out Rihanna’s “American Oxygen” below!
