Rihanna is teasing fans with new music for her upcoming “R8” album. Check the snippets of her new track “Higher” and get the deets on Pharrell Wiliams’ newest country project inside….

Looks like we may be nearing the release of Rihanna’s next album. The Pop princess took to her Instagram today to release two snippets of a brand new track titled “Higher.” And it will likely be featured on her upcoming album, tentatively titled R8.

On the Kuk Harrell and Marcos Tovar-produced track, Rih is feeling good after a few drinks of some whisky and is in search for some male attention. She croons,

“Higher, higher than I’ve ever been, babe / Just come over, let’s pour a drink, babe / I hope I ain’t callin’ you too late.” —

She captioned one snippet, “5 am drunk off da whiskey with these two rockstars @officialkukharrell @djanser !!! These guys always hold me down even at the craziest hours! We’ve made every album since #GoodGirlGoneBad together! The family!!! One Love #R8”

Who’s ready for Rih to release her next album? We sure are.

Take a listen to the “Higher” clips below:

Yesterday, Pharrell Williams was spotted (above, along with his wife Helen) making his way inside the Roybal Federal Building in L.A. to take the stand in the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit.

We told you the hit 2013 single earned P, Robin Thicke and T.I. (along with their labels) $16.6 million in profits. And since Marvin Gaye’s family believes the guys ripped off Marvin’s classic “Got to Give It Up,” they want their share. We’ll keep you posted on the happenings of the court proceedings.

In happier news…

The incredibly talented producer will be working his magic during some off time from taping the highly popular singing competition show, “The Voice.”

P is teaming up with country singing group The Band Perry to produce some tracks for their upcoming album. And they’re thrilled about getting in the studio with the star.

The group’s Kimberly Perry dished on CMT After Midnite radio show saying,

“We’re being really crazy about the different collaborations that we’re diving into. We got to hang out with Pharrell a couple weeks ago. He’s like a huge country music fan, and he also really loves what we do with harmony. One thing that we worked on with him was this song where all three of us sing different interwoven vocals on the verse and on the chorus.”

Nice!
