Oh, you don’t say Kanye West was a co-producer on Rihanna’s new ‘Better’ song?

“Rihanna, I think the track is great… but can you be sure to add a dark, lengthy and unnecessary parenthetical to the end there?” Kanye probably said.


Rihanna is a bad, bad girl … or, rather, there is nothing particularly “girl” about “B*tch Better Have My Money,” which will likely be adorably edited to be “Better Have My Money” as its added to radio. I want to say this is a foray into a macho-male lyrical mindspace, but who's to say that b*tches don't owe Rihanna any money, y'know?

The trap track — which will undoubtably be a huge hit for the singer — was co-produced by West, Roc Nation signee Deputy, Travis Scott and Wonda Girl, approximately three people too many.

It will be featured on Rihanna's next album, her eighth, which has yet to be given a title and release date; it arrives on the heels of another Kanye collab, chill-vibe grower “FourFive Seconds” featuring Paul McCartney, a song which asserts Rihanna knows what day of the week it is.

The hitmaker — who made a similar banger out of “Pour It Up” — will perform this new track during the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 29) from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, telecast on NBC.

Rihanna is also one of the lead voice actors in the Dreamworks Animation feature “Home,” out in theaters today.
