Preview New Rihanna Song “Higher”

Robyn Fenty wants to be clear about one thing: She can sing, OK?? Tom already noted that her vocal performance on “FourFiveSeconds” is one of her strongest to date, and it looks like she’s going to be singing her ass of on her forthcoming new album that seems to be titled R8. Rihanna previewed another snippet from the project today via two Instagram videos. The track in question is called “Higher” and she shouts out whiskey over a classic sounding soul soundtrack. Motown Rihanna crooning about how bourbon has her booty-calling old flames? I am so down. Listen below.
