Rihanna posted FourFiveSeconds featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney to her website. It is expected to be the first single of her upcoming album, although it could end up on Kanye’s album, after he released Only One with the Beatle.

The track signals a departure from her previous, more EDM-influenced sound. The guitar and organ driven track has Kanye singing -not rapping- and credits Kirby Lauryen, Mike Dean, Ty Dolla $ign, Dave Longstreth, Dallas Austin, Elon Rutberg, and Noah Goldstein as StereoGum points out.

Check out the lyrics here, or buy the song on iTunes.

I think I’ve had enough, I might get a little drunk
I say whats on my mind, I might do a little time
Cause all of my kindness, is taken for weakness

Now I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’
And we got three more days ’til Friday
I’m just tryna make it back home by Monday, mornin’
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh thats all I want

Woke up an optimist, sun was shining I’m positive
Then I heard you was talkin’ trash
Hold me back I’m bout’ to spaz

And I know that you’re up tonight
Thinkin’ how could I be so selfish
But you called bout a thousand times wondering where I been
Now I know that your up tonight
Thinkin’ how could I be so reckless
But I just can’t apologize, I hope you can understand

If I go to jail tonight, promise you’ll pay my bail
See they want to buy my pride, but that just ain’t up for sale
See all of my kindness, is taken for weakness
