In the video, we see Rihanna singing the lyrics, “Breathe out, breathe in, American oxygen.” She parades in front of a huge American flag in a white T-shirt, leather jacket and jeans. The American dream!
We get a little teaser of basketball clips from the best boys of the court in the country and then Rihanna sings, “Young boy hustling, trying to get the wheels in motion.” She ends with, “This is the new America.”
“American Oxygen” wasn’t the only song Rihanna previewed for her fans. On the very same day, Rihanna posted an Instagram video teasing another new song.
“Higher” is a much slower song than “American Oxygen” and may be about a guy! Looking at you, Leonardo DiCaprio! Rihanna sings, “This whiskey got me feeling pretty/ So pardon me if I’m impolite/ I just really need your ass with me. Just come over, let’s pour a drink, babe/ I hope I’m not calling you too late.”
Seriously, Rihanna, just come out with your album already!
