  • R&B singer PARTYNEXTDOOR released a new song with Rihanna, called "Believe It," today.

  • This marks one of Rih's latest collaborations as fans await her ninth album.

Amid building her fashion and beauty empire and donating $5 million to coronavirus relief efforts, Rihanna treated fans with a tiny taste of new music.

The superstar lends her vocals to PARTYNEXTDOOR's new track, "Believe It," which appears on his new album PARTYMOBILE that dropped at midnight. Rih takes the choruses in the song, singing from the perspective of a skeptical woman wronged by a partner who's now asking for her forgiveness. Though this isn't quite the full Rihanna album her fans—and Drake—have been waiting for, "Believe It" is still worth celebrating.

Rihanna last album, Anti, arrived in 2016. Since then, the singer has hopped on a couple collaborations as the world anticipates her ninth LP, including DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts" and N.E.R.D.'s "Lemon" in 2017. Her next album wasn't released in 2019 as expected, but Rih has teased that the project is indeed in the works.

In the meantime, we can treat ourselves to "Believe It." Listen to the track above, and read through the full lyrics below.

Hey, best make me believe it
Best make me believe it
Believe you won't deceive me
Hey, best make me believe it
Best make me believe it
Believe you won't deceive me




First you gotta forgive me
Let me know everything gon' be okay
Even if I come out with everything I did
Would you still punish me even though I did it a long time ago?
If so, let me know
If I propose, would you say no?
Would you break my heart?
Would you embarrass me or play your part?
Baby, don't fold, my heart is yours
You got the power, pussy power
You got the power, pussy power
The floor is yours, the time is ours
Hey, either believe me or you don't
Choose to believe me or you won't
If you leave me, I'm skull and bones, I'm dead, baby
You told me














Hey, best make me believe it
Best make me believe it
Believe you won't deceive me
Hey, best make me believe it
Best make me believe it
Believe you won't deceive me




You told me that you'd kill me if I fuck up
You told me I'm a lucky motherfucker
You love 'em, but you never ever trust 'em
Never ever trust me, no
There's two sides to the story
And that girl got a good PR
I knew we'd never make it far
Because I like my bitches black and mama tar
Oh, woah
Tell me you love me 'cause I know they won't
They wanna fit in for the photoshoot
Put them aside, baby, I notice you
My n***as hype, baby, they hypin' you
My family like it, yeah, they likin' you
My mama WhatsApp and she Skype you
She wanna know what it do
You say "Either way, you..."

Best make me believe it
Best make me believe it
Believe you won't deceive me
Hey, best make me believe it
Best make me believe it
Believe you won't deceive me
