AceShowbiz - Rihanna has shared another new song in full. After teasing it in an NCAA March Madness commercial last month, the Bajan beauty delivered the first live performance of "American Oxygen" during the March Madness Music Festival over the weekend in Indianapolis before releasing it on Jay-Z's new music streaming service Tidal.
The track is an empowering anthem on which RiRi talks about pursuing the American dream. "Breathe out, breathe in/ This American oxygen," she sings. "Every breath I breathe/ Chasing this American dream/ Respect for a nickel and dime/ Turn it into an empire."
Produced by Alex Da Kid, "American Oxygen" is presumably a cut off her highly-anticipated eighth studio album. Tentatively titled "R8", the LP which is executive produced by Kanye West is scheduled to hit the stores later this year.
In addition to debuting the new song live, Rih performed some of her hits including "Diamonds", "Stay", "We Found Love" and the recently-unveiled "B**ch Better Have My Money" at the March Madness Music Festival.
Following the concert, she took to Twitter to thank everyone in attendance. "Thank you Indiana!!!! I would never forget how much fun I had with you tonight!! You blew me away!!! Thank you man!! One love always," she wrote. "And you SANG EVERY F**KING WORD!!! That s**t give me goosebumps!!!"
