Rihanna Continues to Mess With Our Hearts By Teasing New Music

We thought we’d have a new Rihanna album by now, but all we have are bits and pieces of a hopeful dream.

Rihanna’s ‘Towards the Sun’
Listen to the track from Rih's animated film 'Home.'

The 27-year-old songstress is supposed to be dropping her new album R8 sometime soon — you know, since it’s been 3 years since her last album — but lately she’s just been teasing us with little snippets of the new stuff.

Today Rih took to Instagram to share two video clips of one of her new songs “Higher,” featuring a raspy-voiced bad gal singing about drinking whiskey, getting high (because, duh) and calling someone late at night (Drake? Leo DiCaprio? Chris Brown?).

The song is different from the club-bangers we’re used to hearing out of Rihanna, relating more closely to 20th century classics we’ve put in the past… But hey! She surprised us with the is acoustic sound of “FourFiveSeconds,” so we’re not getting down on the song just yet.

Rih also dropped “Dancing in the Dark” today, a new song from her animated movie Home. Listen below:
