Rihanna Gives Us Breath by Teasing New Song ‘American Oxygen’ for March Madness

Our hearts are super weak after Rihanna’s been playing with it all week long. Thankfully, she’s giving us some AmeRIHcan oxygen, as Rihanna called it.

Yesterday, she teased a new song off of R8 called “Higher”, and today we have a snippet of her new song called “American Oxygen” for March Madness.

The track off her upcoming album is being used to promote the annual basketball tournament, and we’re blessed.

@MarchMadnessTV broke the news last night by posting the video, featuring Rihanna singing amidst an American flag in jeans, a white t-shirt and leather jacket while the hunky, athletic men in basketball showed off their skills.

Rihanna meanwhile tweeted,


The song sounds like a patriotic anthem, but no complaints on our front. After the release of the mellow and acoustic “FourFiveSeconds”, we’re just ready for the drop of R8.
