AceShowbiz - Rihanna's long-awaited music comeback is finally here. On Friday, March 27, the Barbadian songstress surprised her fans by announcing the release of her collaboration with PARTYNEXTDOOR's "Believe It". She tweeted, "Believe it!! @partynextdoor album live!!!" along with a snippet of the music.
The new song, which has been made available for listening pleasure on YouTube and music streaming platforms, is a groove-filled slow jam that features Rihanna's vocals at various points on the song. She takes up roughly 40 seconds of the track. "That's when you believe it," she croons on the hook. "That's when you believe it/ Believe you want to see me."
"Believe It" marks Rihanna's first new music in three years. She previously teamed up with PND on her Drake-assisted single "Work", which the Canadian singer/songwriter co-wrote.
"Believe It" is part of PND's upcoming album "Partymobile", his first album in four years, which was unveiled on Thursday at midnight via OVO Sound. The 15-track set also boasts a Drake collaboration, "Loyal", which has spanned a remix.
Rihanna, meanwhile, was last featured in a single in 2017, when she appeared on N.E.R.D's epic "Lemon", Future's "Selfish", DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts" and Kendrick Lamar's "Loyalty". Her last album "ANTI" debuted in 2016.
Her fans have since eagerly anticipated for her new album, which is dubbed "R9". In October, she teased her upcoming new album, "I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album. It's not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae. But you're going to feel the elements in all of the tracks."
