Hear An Alleged New Rihanna Song Called “World Peace”

Rihanna’s eighth album (rumored to be titled R8) was one of the “surprise” blockbuster releases that never materialized in late 2014, but it seems likely the project will emerge this year. There’s no telling whether it will include “World Peace,” the alleged Rihanna song that has emerged online — or if “World Peace” is even the genuine article, or if it’s actually a new song. The vocals definitely sound like Rihanna, but the production sounds cheap and dated, with a limp four-on-the-floor beat and a dubstep drop that might have elicited snorting laughter even at the height of dubstep drops. At least the message is positive? Hear it below.

Rihanna has dozens of the world’s best songwriters and producers at her disposal, so if this is the best she can come up with — especially considering she hasn’t released an album in almost three years after previously maintaining a prolific release schedule — that would be a bummer.
