Jay-Z Reunites with Rihanna on ‘Talk That Talk’

Rihanna and Jay-Z

The mystery guest on Rihanna’s new album has been unveiled. Jay-Z is re-teaming with his protégé for a collaboration on her new album Talk That Talk.

Producer Stargate revealed to Norwegian website 730.no that Jay-Z appears on the title track to Rihanna’s sixth album. “This is the first time we do a song with Jay-Z and Rihanna together. Actually it’s the first time Jay does anything on our beats,” said Tor Erik Hermansen, one half of the hitmaking duo. “It was about time.”

He described the Roc Nation affiliates’ latest record. “‘Talk That Talk’ is a mid-tempo banger with hard drums, dirty synths, and Rihanna and Jay at their best. We are very happy with the song and Jay’s verse is crazy—same with Rihanna’s part.”

Jay-Z and Rihanna have worked together several times in the past, most notably on their chart-topping singles “Umbrella” and “Run This Town.”

The hip-hop superstar is the only guest on the album, due November 21. “One feature on the album! And we got the best!!!!!” Rihanna previously tweeted.

    I adore Rihanna to pieces but that Camel/Ape-geriatric excuse for an MC is not gonna cut it. Leave that left over trash to the low-budget one who truly deserves it…

    KillBill Reply:

    @Audrey Hepburn, Haha. Just like Bey stylist said lace fronts are so 2009, the hair she rocks is all hers! Have you seen Rihanna real hair, on her school photo!?

    [Reply]

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @KillBill, I doubt it. I need to see some receipts, and I know she has them because she bought the hair at some rundown joint.

    And Rihanna stays changing up her hair style. Lets not forget how she had more than half of the black girl population in 2008-09 cutting and shaving their hair to emulate her style. Bey been rocking that same look since 03′… stop it.

    [Reply]

    KillBill Reply:

    @Audrey Hepburn, Haha Let’s take it their, go to Ty’s page and ask him. My girl has been rockin the same look since 03, and she still has been relevant every time. Rihanna on the other hand changes up her style, every album to get people talkin. I thought she was a musician not a model. She needs to change up her music. Wasn’t that Amber Rose who had everybody cutting their hair?

  37. Jordan Gabriel

    If only she was a good performer and a good singer… The only thing appealing to me is her personality, she seems cool. But I’ll never pay to see her live, and to me, a real artist is someone that slays it live, without necessarily the need for big productions and all that. She’s not an artist, she’s an executive. She executes.

  41. Say What

    Rihanna is clearly the bread winner in the Hip Hop Royalty Family right about now, so go easy on the bread winner. Her and t.i song was good but man these Jealous Femals or something else about their Old Burn Out Men, Just saying. Her best Collab to date was with the King of Hip Hop EMINEM!!!!!!!!
    She has collab with Jay on “Run This Town” & “Umbrella” Perhaps Her and Jay will have another SMASH!!!!!!!!!SHE KEEPS SHUTTING THINGS DOWN!!!!!
