Update, 4/3: Uh-oh—Rihanna's facing allegations that she ripped off her smash single from an artist named Just Brittany. In 2014, the little-known rapper released a track called "Betta Have My Money," that, dare we say it, bares a striking resemblance to Rihanna's song. RiRi has yet to comment on the accusation. Listen to both tracks here:

Original post, 3/26: At long last, Rihanna (opens in new tab) has dropped a new single from her forthcoming album—her first in three years.

The single, entitled "BBHMM," is an acronym for B*tch Better Have My My Money, and is a reference to Keene Ivory Wayans' film I'm Gonna Get You Sucka. It may be an out-and-out, bottle-popping club anthem, but she's still made good on her promise of a new kind of sound.

"I've made a lot of songs that are just really, really big songs," she told MTV (opens in new tab). "From the jump, they just blow up. And I wanted to kind of get back to—not that they weren't real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever." Rihanna also noted that the release will have a "timeless" vibe to it.

Yesterday, RiRi, being the tease that she is, shared a black and white portrait of herself on Instagram with the hashtags "#R8," and "#BBHMM," and most promisingly, "#March26," leading us and the rest of the internet hoping that by the end of today, she'll have dropped her entire album. Fingers crossed.
