Rihanna talks music in new summer issue of V Magazine. She said:
“Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James,’ joint is on constant repeat,” she told the magazine. “[The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”
It’ll feature a few songs that have already come out including, “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “American Oxygen” and “FourFiveSeconds,” which she collaborated on with Paul McCartney and Kanye West.
“The thing that made me fall in love with [‘FourFiveSeconds’] is the juxtaposition of the music and the lyrics,” she told V. “When you read the lyrics it’s a completely different song than what you are hearing. The music is easygoing, but the lyrical content is very loud and in your face. In performing this, the key was to make sure the aggression wasn’t lost.”
