Was this the Rihanna song ya’ll was waiting for?
It’s been four years since the pop star has dropped new music and when she finally does it’s only background vocals. No seriously. ICYMI, the Barbadian singer released the new song “Believe It,” with PARTYNEXTDOOR but she only sings the track’s five-word chorus and backup.
Don’t believe it (pun intended) here’s the lyric video below.
Needless to say her navy of devoted followers were disappointed.
“Rihanna really made me wait three years for the background vocals?!” tweets one upset fan, to the tune of 6,500 likes.
“ ’Best make me believe it,’ echoing in my head for the next three years until rihanna gives us another lil feature,” writes another in a tweet that has racked up over 2,200 likes.

Rihanna purposely released that horrible PartyNextDoor song so we’d stop asking for the album pic.twitter.com/doHd5UDJVL

That hasn’t stopped them from listening though: The lyric video has some 200K views.
Rihanna’s last album was “Anti,” released in 2016, which included the single “Work.”
But while she hasn’t been making music she has been doing her part to help combat the spread of the coronavirus. Earlier this month her Clara Lionel Foundation donated $5 million to organizations and governments fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. The money will help fund food banks serving at-risk communities, distribution of respiratory supplies and protective gear, testing resources in underprivileged countries and training for health workers, the charity said last week.
“I want to thank @rihanna and the Rihanna Foundation for donating Personal Protective Equipment to New York State,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted on Thursday. “We’re so appreciative of your help and that of so many others who have stepped up.”
