AMP Music Minute: Rihanna’s Album Has One Guest Spot, Guess Who? Nicki Minaj to Unleaash Roman on the World in Two Weeks? And Adele’s Throat Surgery Prognosis
There has been a good amount o speculation about who the guest feature would be on [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm]’s latest album, Talk That Talk.
Previously, the Roc Nation singer tweeted, “One feature on the album! And we got the best!!!!!” The vague message had the internet scurring around trying to figure out. But we can put that all to rest now, because the producer has spoken.
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Stargate[/lastfm] worked with Rihanna on her title track, “Talk That Talk,” and reveled recently that the guest feature is none other than the Roc Boss himself, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm]. Stargate is duo of producers that had been itching to get into the studio with both Rih and Jay, “This is the first time we do a song with Jay-Z and Rihanna together. Actually it’s the first time Jay does anything on our beats,” said Tor Erik Hermansen, one half of the hitmaking duo. “It was about time.”
[photogallerylink id=121721 align=left]This isn’t the first time, however, that Jay-Z and Rihanna have worked together. In fact, when they work together, magic seems to happen, you may remember Rihanna’s breakout single “Umbrella,” don’t you? And we can’t sleep on “Run This Town” either. Together, they make Roc Nation shine, that’s undeniable.
Stargate says that “Talk That Talk” is a showcase of both of artists talents, “Talk That Talk’ is a mid-tempo banger with hard drums, dirty synths, and Rihanna and Jay at their best. We are very happy with the song and Jay’s verse is crazy—same with Rihanna’s part,” said Hermansen.
The album comes out in just a few weeks, November 21st. I’ll be playing close attention the only collaboration on the project. If history is any indication, I’m just going start right now waving my hands in the air, like I just don’t care.
