Rihanna Talks New Music, Goes Topless For V mag Spread

Rihanna is featured on the latest cover of V Magazine. In the mag she talks about her R8 album and its interludes, as well as new music on it including “FourFiveSeconds.”

Rihanna on “James Joint“:

“Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James,’ joint is on constant repeat. [The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”

Rihanna on “FourFiveSeconds“:

“The thing that made me fall in love with [‘FourFiveSeconds’] is the juxtaposition of the music and the lyrics. When you read the lyrics it’s a completely different song than what you are hearing. The music is easygoing, but the lyrical content is very loud and in your face. In performing this, the key was to make sure the aggression wasn’t lost.”
