Rihanna’s ‘James Joint’ Lyrics An Ode To Chris Brown? ‘I’d Rather Be Smoking Weed, Here Come The Police, They Know ‘Bout Your History’

Rihanna is known lately for denying getting caught on video allegedly doing cocaine, but for professing her love for “basing with [a] cigarette,” smoking weed, and for loving her short interlude songs, as reported in the Inquisitr article about the singer going blonde, topless, and not caring about her privacy any more. However, on Tuesday, April 21, it’s the so-titled James Joint song that’s a trending topic on Twitter, as fans react to the short interlude.

“In celebration of 420, here’s an interlude from my 8th studio album that I call James Joint.”

Quite appropriately, the song that’s an ode to marijuana (as stated on Rihanna Now) is a day late, something that folks are already joking about on social media since so-called stoners are known for relaxation and procrastination.

As for the lyrics to the “James Joint” song, they invoke images of a woman in love with love and with kissing a man so passionately that they break stuff because they aren’t paying attention, so enthralled in the throes of passion are they. And then there’s the line about Rihanna smoking weed each time they both breathe.

james joint is so chill.

It’s a short but impactful one-minute, 12-second long song that’s garnering plenty of reactions on Twitter.

I’d rather be smoking weed whenever we breathe every time you kiss me

Don’t say that you miss me, just come get me

Don’t know why, just know I want to

Don’t know why, just know I want you

I’d rather be breaking things ’cause we can’t see we’re too busy kissing

Just making scenes, here come the police, they know ’bout your history

How you live and love like, ‘F*** you…’

Don’t care why just know I love you

Indeed, with lyrics that speak of the police and a suitor whose potentially violent history is known by the police, the song may make one infer that she’s referring to her ex-love Chris Brown, a man who has made his own news lately because of his high-profile breakup with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, after it was discovered that Brown fathered a child with a different woman.
