Rihanna and Jay-Z

New Music: Rihanna f/ Jay-Z – ‘Talk That Talk’

The Roc is in the building. Jay-Z and Rihanna combine forces once again on the title track from RiRi’s sixth album Talk That Talk, produced by Stargate and written by Ester Dean. Mr. Carter does it way big on his intro verse (“I’m flying out to Pisa just to get some pizza”), while RiRi adds a feminine touch to the aggressive beat.

“‘Talk That Talk’ is a mid-tempo banger with hard drums, dirty synths, and Rihanna and Jay at their best,” said Stargate’s Tor Erik Hermansen. “We are very happy with the song and Jay’s verse is crazy—same with Rihanna’s part.”

How does “Talk That Talk” stack up to the Roc stars’ previous hit collaborations, “Umbrella” and “Run This Town”? Listen and weigh in with your thoughts.
