New Music: Rihanna f/ Drake - 'What's My Name'
With their rumored romantic relationship splashed all over gossip blogs, Rihanna and Drake forget about the past on the island-flavored “What’s My Name,” the second single off her fifth album Loud (due Nov. 16). The two get playful on wax, with Drizzy heating things up with some lady-loving rhymes and RiRi laying down the qualifications to be her man.
“Yeah, I heard you good with them soft lips/ Yeah you know word of mouth,” raps Drake. “Baby you’re a challenge/ Let’s explore your talents,” responds Rihanna.
“Drake is such a cool guy, man. He’s like one of my great friends,” RiRi told BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Max in a recent interview.
Rihanna filmed a video for the solo version of the Stargate-produced, Ester Dean-penned tune in New York City with director Philip Andelman. “I hope we get to shoot a video for that too,” Drake told MTV News. “I’m really excited about that song.”
