The world may never know when #R8 will actually arrive, but Rihanna continues to unapologetically tease us with new music! Her latest preview is in the form of a — get this — basketball commercial. The singer tweeted a promotional clip for the NCAA’s March Madness, which debuts a new track from the upcoming album — “American Oxygen.”

In the 30-second teaser, the Bad Gal rocks a classic white t-shirt and denim combination while performing the tune in front of a hazy-filtered American flag. The song itself sounds like a thumping mid-tempo with triumphant percussion and lyrics like “Young boy hustling/ Trying to get the wheels in motion” that will suit a stadium stage perfectly. Judging from “American Oxygen,” the singer’s “Higher” Instagram teaser and the new “Dancing In The Dark” preview from Home, the next Rihanna era seems worth the wait!

Watch the NCAA promotional clip for “American Oxygen” below and look out for March Madness on the 15th airing on CBS, CBS, TNT, and truTV.
