Rihanna Samples Florence + The Machine For “A Night”: Listen To A Teaser
The world may never know if Rihanna’s #R8 will actually be released, but here’s another preview to hold you over in the meantime. The latest song teaser is reportedly titled “A Night,” which features a sample from Florence + The Machine’s “Only If For A Night” from 2011’s Ceremonials.
“A Night” popped up in a behind-the-scenes Dior ad campaign video that features the Bad Gal fiercely posing as the moody track plays in the background. But the research-heavy #RihannaNavy first dug up the song back in January, when they discovered it was registered with ASCAP.
Third official taste we’ve received from the Bad Gal’s forthcoming eighth LP was “American Oxygen,” which followed “FourFiveSeconds” and “Bitch Better Have My Money.” There’s also various snippets still floating around the Internet, but we probably won’t hear them until the album drops (who knows when that will be).
Check out the teaser clip of “A Night” below, and let us know if you’re still anxiously waiting or totally over #R8.
