Rihanna is keeping a tight lid on her new album, but she gave her Rihanna Navy a preview of a brand new song on Thursday (March 5). The bad gal took to Instagram to share a couple snippets of a track called “Higher,” produced by Kuk Harrell and Marcos Tovar.
“This whisky got me feelin’ pretty, so pardon if I’m impolite / I just really need your ass with me,” sings RiRi over the melancholy beat before belting out the hook.
“Higher, higher than I’ve ever been, babe / Just come over, let’s pour a drink, babe / I hope I ain’t callin’ you too late.”
Mac Miller quickly took to Twitter to praise Rih’s new sound.
That Rihanna Higher sounds

“FourFiveSeconds,” Rihanna’s first single featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney, is currently No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
There’s more new music on the horizon. In addition to “Towards the Sun,” she has contributed a song called “Dancing in the Dark” to DreamWorks’ animated film Home, in which she also stars. You can hear a snippet of the feel-good track in the movie clip below.
