The remake single that features Rihanna and Maroon 5's collaboration has been leaked on the Internet.

The single supposed to get its official radio release on May 13.
The song will be included on both artists' re-release albums. Rihanna's upcoming deluxe edition of "Good Girl Gone Bad" will be released on June 17. Meanwhile, Maroon's repackaged album hasn't set its due date yet.
Previously, Rihanna has expressed her excitement of working with the band saying, "This is the only collaboration on my re-release, because I always wanted to work with Maroon 5. They're one of my favorite bands. When they called me to do this record with them, I was so honored."
The music video to accompany the single's release has also been shot in Los Angeles in late April and was directed by Anthony Mandler. Commenting about the video shoot, at that time Rihanna said "It's really intense, because you have to work with each other so much. It's new for me, but I'm enjoying it."
