We've spent plenty of time waiting for Kanye and Rihanna to drop their respective albums — but we never really anticipated getting a sneak peek of a duet though. At Wednesday's iHeart Media Music Summit, West took the stage to showcase some of his new work. According to Billboard, among the tracks was a duet featuring Bad Girl RiRi herself.

A source told Billboard that Yeezy took the stage and proceeded to make a 45-minute speech. (Sounds like the Kanye we know.) The source claimed the rapper told the audience he has a "responsibility to innovate," avoiding repetition in his work. "This little talk I'm giving is going good so far, so I have to risk being Kanye," West told the crowd at one point during his presentation. 

To "risk being Kanye,"of course, meant West would sing some lines of "Only One" a cappella, and preview his new duet with Rihanna. The source claimed the track featured an acoustic guitar, and a "big, soaring chorus and melody with a massive hook," Billboard reports. 

When the song was over, West closed his laptop and walked offstage — apparently to a standing ovation.

Now, if Mr. West would be so kind as to release that track, we'd all be very grateful.
