On episode 322 of the Joe Budden Podcast with Rory & Mal, co-host Rory Farrell hinted at the collaboration. Without naming names, he explained, “There may be one factor that Party has, and we’ll revisit this when the album comes out, that may push his shit over the top because there’s someone we’ve been waiting for.”
When Budden guessed Rihanna, Farrell said, “I didn’t say that.” Budden then responded, “Yea, there’s a Rihanna record on it. We know that already” and added, “Well I don’t know that but yea, that’s safe to assume.”
