Rihanna “Bitch Better Have My Money”

Oh yeah, R8 is coming soon this year too.

Rihanna’s new album takes a turn today as “Bitch Better Have My Money” is her new turn-up single heard below. I’m not into it as much as the Rih fans certainly are, but like pretty much anything she puts out, the single should blow up. UPDATE: Producers include Deputy, Travi$ Scott, Kanye West, and Wondagurl.

Perhaps just as interesting as the song is Rihanna’s comments on the song, especially referring to her old songs as “they don’t feel like me.”…

“I’ve made a lot of songs that are really, really big songs. And I wanted to kind of get back to—not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever,” said the pop star in a recent interview. “I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years; I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years. Not any songs that were burnt out. I find that when I get on stage now, I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs. They don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.”
