[New Music] Rihanna & Mike Will Made It - "Nothing Is Promised"
We heard a snippet of Nothing Is Promised when Rihanna was recording Anti. Unfortunately for folk like me who were actually looking forward to hearing the Mike Will Made It track in its entirety, it never shipped with the LP.
But here it is. Months after the album dropped, the song has been released and we can now hear why it never made the cut. Though it starts great and Rihanna's flow is strong, towards its short end it loses momentum with even the Diva sounding bored, repeating the same lines, over and over.
I'll no doubt have this on repeat for the foreseeable future, but it definitely didn't live up to the hype I'd built for it, hearing the preview all those moons ago.
