Good news for all you Nicki Minaj fans.
The single is called Raining Men, but thankfully it’s said not to be anything like the original. Instead being described as “up-tempo but kind of quirky and funny."
"You know I worked with her before on Rated R and she was just writing me some really good ballads and I couldn't wait to work with her again and finally have her on my record.”
As for her thoughts on Minaj, Rihanna had nothing but great things to say. Adding:
"She has a great buzz and she has a 'thing' to her. She is a star and that's why people love her. She's also really entertaining with her visual as well as her lyrics and she has a great melody. I'm really amazed that she can write like that. [Nicki] not only raps but she can write songs too. It was really easy actually. We were going back on forth with the texts on how we were going to get to do it because we were in two different places and had two opposite schedules."
The song will appear on Rihanna’s next album, Loud and we can’t wait to hear it.
