I'm literally crying from literally two lines of Rihanna's new song "Higher," executive produced by Kanye. If these two perfectly iambic-tetrameter'ed lines are representative, this is going to be a tough, spacious, beautiful ballad—a navy one, you could say, dark shit with a rare and lovely touch of the blues. Can't wait till the full thing comes out and we can sing it to each other when we're drunk, you feel?

btw, the more i listen to "fourfiveseconds" the more apparent it becomes that 9 people wrote that song.
