Rihanna is set to drop her seventh album on Nov. 19, and though only one year has passed since her last album, "Talk That Talk," there is a steady buzz surrounding "Unapologetic." Chalk up some of that hype to a duet with Rihanna's maybe-boyfriend, Chris Brown.
Rihanna tweeted a photo of the "Unapologetic" tracklist for fans on Tuesday, confirming a collaboration with Brown for a track titled "Nobodies Business."
"Nobodies Business" channels Michael Jackson with a line from "The Way You Make Me Feel," and has a decidedly 80s/90s vibe.
On the track, Rihanna sings: "You'll always be the one that I wanna come on to/ Boy let me love you and show you how's spice show you off/ I wanna be your baby, you'll always be my baby/ Tell me what you want now." On the hook, she croons: "I'm gonna be your girl/ And I wanna make you mine/ And it ain't nobodies business."
Rihanna and Brown have collaborated before, on his-and-hers remixes of "Birthday Cake" and "Turn Up the Music."
The musical reunion was controversial because of their troubled past. "The whole thing caught me a little off-guard to be honest ... especially the amount of ... negative attention. Because it never occurred to me how this was going to be a problem. It really didn't," Rihanna told Esquire U.K. "I thought people were gonna be surprised that we finally did a record together, but I didn't see how people could think it was a bad thing. In my mind, it was just music."
The exes, who broke up in 2009 after he assaulted her, are rumored to be dating again. Neither has confirmed the rekindled relationship.
Rihanna's "Unapologetic" drops Nov. 19 and features appearances by Eminem, Future and Mikky Ekko.
