Rihanna is giving her fans a taste of her new duet with Chris Brown. A teaser audio track of the song “Nobodies Business” hit the Internet this morning (Nov. 8). It’s an upbeat R&B song and a strong statement about her personal life.
Rihanna has been working at a break-neck pace to wrap up her seventh studio album in as many years. It will be released this month (Nov. 19) and is already causing a stir.
The 24-year-old singer released a track list earlier this week and revealed that she and Brown would duet on the song. Rihanna reportedly tweeted the teaser clip herself, according to E! News.
In the tune, Rihanna reportedly samples Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel,” from his 1987 No. 1 single. The song also has an uptempo pop feel like many of Jackson’s songs. But the lyrics are all Rihanna.
“Me and you, get it?
Ain’t nobody’s business
Said it, it ain’t nobody’s business”
Your love is perfection, please point me in the right direction
I’mma give you all my affection
Every touch becomes infectious
Rihanna has sampled music before. She included a refrain from Johnny Cash’s song, “I’ve Been Everywhere” on her Talk That Talk track “Where Have You Been.”
The Barbadian singer and Brown have also collaborated before on remixes of their respective songs “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up the Music.” The remixes signaled their renewed relationship, and “Nobodies Business” suggests it’s moving to the next level.
Brown infamously assaulted Rihanna and left her unconscious in 2009 on the eve of the Grammy Awards Show. He later pleaded guilty to felony assault and is still on probation.
