Rihanna has been featured on Future’s new album HNDRXX, which released today.

Five years after teaming up on “Loveeeeeee Song” off 2012’s Unapologetic, Hendrix and RiRi are at it again. This time, over a spacious beat filled with hand snaps, the two harmonize about a potential love.

“Broken love driving backwards,” they sing together. “Making all the wrong turns / Saying all the wrong words / Dodging angels / Oh, let’s not be alone / Let’s be one / Tonight, let’s be selfish.”

Future has been singing Rihanna’s praises since at least 2012. At the time, he spoke with Rap-Up about their first collaboration. “RiRi is a blessing in disguise,” he said. “It just says a lot about her character. She takes risks and I love women that take risks because I feel like that’s the way to live. Do it your way.”

Listen to “Selfish” on Spotify, Tidal or Apple Music.

Rihanna earns her sixth No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, as “Needed Me” hops 2-1 on the Sept. 24-dated list.

The crowning climb follows another No. 1 for Rihanna earlier this year with “Work,” featuring Drake, which spent 11 weeks on top, first leading the Feb. 13 chart. It’s the first time that Rihanna has placed two tracks from the same album atop the chart; both are from her most recent release, Anti. The set debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (Feb. 20) and spent four weeks at No. 1.

“Needed Me” bumps Drake from his record-breaking 18-week run at No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with “One Dance,” featuring WizKid & Kyla. The song slides to No. 2 on the chart (which blends airplay, sales and streaming data, powered by Nielsen Music). “Needed Me” had spent the last eight weeks at No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs below “One Dance.”

Rihanna takes the No. 1 slot despite an overall 2 percent decline in chart points. That said, the song is up 1 percent in streams (to 4.1 million in the week ending Sept. 8); 41 percent of its weekly clicks are from Spotify, while YouTube claims 35 percent. The song slips 11 percent in sales (to 27,000 downloads) and falls 2 percent in audience (to 80.6 million).

Rihanna’s 6 No. 1s on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs
Title, Peak date, Weeks at No. 1
“Take a Bow,” Aug. 30, 2008, one week
“Diamonds,” Oct. 20, 2012, 14 weeks
“The Monster,” (Eminem feat. Rihanna), Nov. 16, 2013, 13 weeks
“FourFiveSeconds” (with Kanye West & Paul McCartney), Feb. 21, 2015, seven weeks
“Work,” feat. Drake, Feb. 13, 2016, 11 weeks
“Needed Me,” Sept. 24, 2016 (one week to date)

In the 11 years since Rihanna first debuted on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, on June 11, 2005, with “Pon De Replay” (which rose to No. 24), she has notched 48 total hits on the chart. She trails just two other female acts for the most appearances in that span: Nicki Minaj (71) and Beyonce (52).

Also notably, “Needed Me” took 32 weeks to hit the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs summit, completing Rihanna’s longest trip to No. 1 and the third-longest of any leader. John Legend’s “All of Me” reached No. 1 in its 35th frame in 2014, while the longest trek belongs to R. Kelly’s “Step in the Name if Love,” which became the chart’s leader in its 43rd week in 2003.
