Kanye West previews a collaboration with Rihanna
Rihanna collaboration among previewed songs during surprise appearance at Wednesday’s iHeartMedia Music Summit.
People are sleeping with one eye open in case Kanye West releases new music, and that moment seems to be fast approaching. On Wednesday, West previewed new music from his seventh studio album at the iHeartMedia Music Summit at Burbank, Calif.’s iHeartRadio Theatre, according to a source at the event. (…)
He finished by playing one new song: a duet with Rihanna (title unknown) that featured acoustic guitar and a big, soaring chorus and melody with a massive hook. He then slammed his laptop shut and walked offstage to a standing ovation.
Perhaps the Rihanna song is the collaboration that also features Ty Dolla $ign and McCartney that Ty mentioned to Billboard in early January.
“Me, Rihanna, ‘Ye and Paul [Mc Cartney] got a song about to drop as well,” Ty Dolla $ign said. “It’s gonna drop soon. I heard they shot the video recently. I don’t know what the final title is, but I know it’s crazy, so just be looking out for [it].”
