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

Rihanna and Jay-Z

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.

New Music: Rihanna – ‘You Da One’

You Da One

With 11 chart-topping singles under her belt, Rihanna aims for No. 1 again with her latest “You Da One.” Produced by Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Ke$ha) and written by Ester Dean, the irresistible island-flavored jam is the second single from the pop princess’ sixth album Talk That Talk, in stores November 21.

“‘You Da One’ is one of those records that became very addictive for me,” RiRi told Ryan Seacrest. “I could not stop listening to this song. It’s very infectious. It’s a sweet little love letter. I love that it has that reggae vibe, but it also has that little bit of dubstep. It’s kind of dirty. I love it.”

Does Rihanna have another hit on her hands? Sound off below.
