Billboard confirm that the song, which was revealed for the first time yesterday, was produced by West alongside Roc Nation producer Deputy. Travis Scott and Wonda Gurl both provided additional production to the song.
Rihanna is currently preparing to release her forthcoming eighth studio LP, which will likely feature ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’, as well as the Paul McCartney and Kanye West collaboration ‘FourFiveSeconds’. She has said that the “soulful” new album will sound “timeless”.
“I’ve made a lot of songs that are just really big songs…they just blow up, Rihanna told MTV. “Not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever.
“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 because they don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.”
Earlier this year Kanye West confirmed that he is executive producing the new Rihanna album. The pair recently teamed up alongside Paul McCartney for the new single ‘Fourfiveseconds’ and West will also helm the entire project in the role of ‘executive producer’.
The two artists performed ‘Fourfiveseconds’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 8, where West confirmed the news.
