Last month Rihanna revealed that there was a mystery guest on her upcoming album Talk That Talk, due November 21.
“One feature on the album! And we got the best!!!!!” Rihanna previously tweeted.
Now that mystery was revealed to be RiRi’s boss and mentor Jay-Z. Producer Stargate revealed to Norwegian website 730.no that Jay-Z appears on the title track Talk That Talk.
“This is the first time we do a song with Jay-Z and Rihanna together. Actually it’s the first time Jay does anything on our beats,” said Tor Erik Hermansen. “It was about time.”
“‘Talk That Talk’ is a mid-tempo banger with hard drums, dirty synths, and Rihanna and Jay at their best. We are very happy with the song and Jay’s verse is crazy—same with Rihanna’s part,” he described the track.
Jay-Z and Rihanna previously collaborated on their chart-topping singles “Umbrella” and “Run This Town.”
