Rihanna shared a snippet of “Higher” from her upcoming album R8 on Instagram Thursday to give her followers a little taste of the new track with two separate posts.
The lyrics are “This whiskey got me feelin’ pretty / So pardon if I’m impolite / I just really need your ass with me, Just come over, let’s pour a drink, babe/ I hope I’m not calling you too late,” and the song cuts off there.
“Higher” has a throwback vibe to it, almost like her Paul McCartney-featured track, “FourFiveSeconds.” The album so far sounds totally different than anything the “Diamonds” singer has released before which has us totally excited!

The caption to the snippet says, “5 am drunk off da whiskey with these two rockstars @officialkukharrell @djanser !!! These guys always hold me down even at the craziest hours! We’ve made every album since #GoodGirlGoneBad together! The family!!! One Love #R8.”
R8 is expected to be released in the second half of this year, but there isn’t an official release date yet.Note: Populove is currently undergoing site maintenance following a hiatus. Some post images and comments from previous months may not appear as we work on the issue.
