This is Rihanna’s first new music in two years, her last album Unapologetic was released back in 2012 and included the singles ‘We Found Love’ and ‘Where Have You Been’’.

This is not the first time Kanye and McCartney have worked together. Last year the two artists collaborated on the single ‘Only One’, which was dedicated to the rapper’s daughter North.

After the song was released last year, some Kanye fans took to Twitter to praise Kanye for “shining light on unknown artists” unaware that McCartney is a musical icon.
