Rihanna and Young Jeezy Team Up for New Single ‘Hard’
Rihanna is rolling out material off her upcoming album ‘Rated R.’ Yesterday, a new track dubbed ‘Hard,’ featuring Young Jeezy hit radio and made some noise. Thanks to a knocking bass beat and braggadocious lyrics, ‘Hard,’ which was penned by The Dream, seems to be the single of choice on urban radio.
“Tougher than a lion/ Ain’t no need in trying/ I live where the sky ends, yup, you know this,” Rihanna flows. “Never lying, truth telling/ That Rihanna reign just won’t let up/ … The hottest b—- in heels right here.”
Jeezy sticks to boasting about his success on the block and ‘hood credibility in his verse. “I used to run my block like Obama and them/ Don’t believe me, ask my momma and them/ Tell ’em give me back my swag/ They tried to clone me/ See my Louis Chucks, Louis flag, Louis flames, Louis belt/ What that make me, ‘Louis Mane’?/ … ‘Hard,’ if one word describes me/ If I wasn’t doing this, you know where’d I be,” Jeezy raps.
Another new Rihanna track, ‘Wait Your Turn,’ leaked earlier this week. ‘Rated R’ hits stores and online retailers on Nov. 23.
