Hear An Alleged New Rihanna Song Called 'World Peace'

Is this the first song on Rihanna's new 'R8' album?

A new song called 'World Peace' seemingly recorded by Rihanna has surfaced online. 

The new track hears what sounds like the 'Pour It Up' singer's vocals over a dance music beat reminiscent of some of Rih's earlier work on 'We Found Love' and 'Where Have You Been.' 

It's unknown whether the song will feature on Rihanna's highly anticipated forthcoming album, rumoured to be called 'R8,' or even if this is a genuine Rihanna recording. 

'R8' was tipped to drop as a Beyoncé-like surprise album towards the end of 2014, but it's now looking likely to come in the first quarter of this year. 

Ne-Yo recently revealed on Capital XTRA that he had written a track for the 2012 'Unapologetic' follow-up, but he's not sure whether it will be included.
