Rihanna Sings About Love for Weed on ‘James Joint’
After releasing some well-received songs like "FourFiveSeconds" and "Bitch Better Have My Money," it looks like Rihanna's next album, R8, will be a total winner.
Now she's offering another treat from the effort. Just listen to a short interlude, "James Joint," on which she talks about her love for marijuana and the man in her life. "I'd rather be smoking weed whenever we breathe / Every time you kiss me don't say that you miss me, just come get me," she croons.
The Bajan beauty also sings about a troubled, yet passionate relationship with that particular guy. "I'd rather be breaking things, 'cause we can't see / We're too busy kissing, just making scenes / Here come the police, they know about your history / How you live and love like f--- rules? / Don't care why, just know I love you," Rihanna sings in a whispery tone.
There's still no official release date for R8 but it's safe to say that anticipation builds for the effort each time a new song is released.
In an interview with MTV last month, the 27-year-old revealed the new album has a soulful and timeless feel to it. "I've made a lot of songs that are really, really big songs," she said. "From the jump, they just blow up, and I wanted to kind of get back to -- not that they weren't real music -- but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever."
