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.
