Rihanna James Joint Song


Rihanna has released a new interlude song, called “James Joint,” from her upcoming album. The singer dropped the clip to commemorate 420, albeit a day late. She shared the music on her website with the caption, “In celebration of 420, here’s an interlude from my 8th studio album.” Listen to the interlude below.

In the mellow, laid-back track, Rihanna quietly sings about her love of pot. “I’d rather be smoking weed. Every time I breathe, every time you kiss me. Don’t say that you miss me, just come get me. Don’t know why, just know I want to. Don’t know why, just know I want you,” she sings.

As Gossip Cop reported, Rihanna opened up about her new album, tentatively titled “R8,” in a new interview with V Magazine. “I’m in love with my interludes,” said Rihanna, adding, “This one called ‘James Joint’ is on constant repeat.” She also revealed that “FourFiveSeconds,” her collaboration with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, is her favorite song from the album.

It’s not clear when fans can expect Rihanna’s album to hit stores, although she’s now released several tracks from it. Her other new songs include “American Oxygen,” “FourFiveSeconds” and “B*tch Better Have My Money.” Listen to “James Joint” below, and tell us what you think.
