Rihanna has been teasing fans with tiny drops of new music, like the fifteen second snippet of Kiss It Better and the miniscule preview that she released on Instagram. But now her forthcoming album, R8, may have sprung a leak.
Over the holiday, a demo of a purported new Rihanna song called World Peace hit YouTube. No one seems to know whether the track is definitely Rihanna.
Rihanna has not confirmed whether the song is hers, but ardent fans believe the voice on the track matches Rihanna’s and the song is somewhat similar to her 2011 hit We Found Love.
The song’s lyrics have a decidedly political bent with RiRi spouting bumper-sticker ready lines like, “In a perfect world, we would make love over war” and “what the world really needs, is to feel love again.”
Still, if this is, in fact, a demo of Rihanna’s latest masterpiece, the Grammy winner is guaranteed to get fans dancing to the driving pop beat, which is just a few synthesisers short of We Found Love club potential.
In the meantime, fans of the singer are raving about the song, and many have appreciated her for releasing a song on the need for peace.
Here is what one fan wrote: “Now that think about it! Look at the climate in this country! Protests! The murders of the New York police officers. The questionable deaths of countless young black men by police all over the country. We have been looking like a third world! The mess of a climate in New York where officials are turning on each other. Playing the blame game and pointing fingers. Releasing a song called World Peace!! Maybe creative genius.”
Rihanna, who put out an album every year for seven years, took a two-year break in 2012 and her only two songs in the following two years were duets with other singers such as Shakira and Eminem.
In 2013, she collaborated with Eminem for Monster and the next year had Rihanna and Shakira singing Can’t Remember To Forget You.
Rihanna has not been doing music for a while now as she hasn’t released a new album in two years. Her fans are getting impatient and thirsty. Rihan...3.0
