Rihanna has given us a Thursday thrill by posting a snippet of a new song called "Higher" from an unknown album on Instagram.      

"Higher" sounds like a big, glossy throwback to classic R&B songs, with swelling strings and RiRi's throaty voice hitting us in all the right places. Alas, it's only a few seconds long. It's just the latest tease Rihanna's given us about her upcoming album, which reportedly also features a song that samples from Florence + the Machine. RiRi's no slouch when it comes to social media, so she's been peppering her Twitter timeline and Instagram account with details here and there about her next album. Here's an entire timeline of everything the Navy has gathered with regards to what we're thinking will be called R8.

Plus, "Higher" is an interesting counterpoint to the song released earlier today, "Dancing In The Dark," for the cutesy animated flick Home. We can't wait to get our paws on her new album, and we're totally Unapologetic about it.
