Rihanna's Talk That Talk album is now complete, with a Nov. 21 release date, tracklist available and news of a collaboration with Jay-Z on the title track. Now we've got audio of the jam with Hova, and it's a pretty strong lead.
RiRi's sixth studio album will feature Calvin Harris on the track "We Found Love," and with Jay-Z as her other collaborator on the record, there's already a tidal wave of buzz building. It'll undoubtedly kick up a higher notch with the release of the "Talk That Talk" single, a surprisingly strong showing from both host and guest.
Listen to the track below, which is a return to the R&B form for Ri, with a smooth, chill groove and a fierce front-end loaded verse from Jay-Z:
Also check out "You Da One," Which Rihanna debuted on Ryan Seacrest's radio show:
"You Da One is one of those records that became very addictive for me," she told Seacrest when debuting the track on his show. "I could not stop listening to this song. It's very infectious. It's a sweet little love letter. I love that it has that reggae vibe, but it also has that little bit of dubstep. It's kind of dirty. I love it."
Talk That Talk features nine other sizzlers, with production credits from a number of noted hitmakers like Stargate, Bangladesh and The-Dream. Another producer, Hit-Boy, made the final cut with his sass-loaded "Watch n' Learn."
"She definitely murdered it vocally," he told MTV News. "I was just at the studio last week listening to a mix of it, and man, she killed it. I really feel like, this song, it's going to be big. I'm really excited about it."
