Rihanna Unreleased Dancehall Song Leaked
Written by Rika C on January 26, 2021
Fans are desperate for new music from Rihanna, and it is very obvious. It’s been five (5) years since the artist dropped any new music, and her loyal fans are asking the blooming businesswoman to account to them for when her new album will be dropped. Rihanna has promised that she is working on a dancehall album as she pays homage to the genre that inspired her and that she has always represented abroad so much so that her songs “Man down” and “You da One” are both inspired by the genre. Last week, a song purported to be a ‘leak’ from the artist’s upcoming reggae/dancehall album hit the internet, and fans went wild. A 44-second clip of Rihanna was leaked on Twitter in which the artist can be heard belting out lyrics in Patois at an upbeat riddim. However, others quickly fact-checked the clip and said it wasn’t a leak but rather an unreleased version from Rihanna of an existing song- a demo Rihanna made for “Hot Gyal” by XXXTentacion, Tory Lanez, and Mavado, but she was replaced with Tory Lanez on the final version. The song is said to have been recorded around 2018-2019, but the version featuring Rihanna is unreleased. The unreleased version, which was leaked by XXXtentacion fans, is 2: 17 seconds long and received 2.4 million views.
