During an interview with 730.no (via Rap-Up), a member of production duo Stargate revealed that the duo, who previously teamed for "Umbrella" and "Run This Town," were joining forces for the new cut. "This is the first time we do a song with Jay-Z and Rihanna together. Actually it’s the first time Jay does anything on our beats,” said Tor Erik Hermansen. “It was about time.
"‘Talk That Talk’ is a mid-tempo banger with hard drums, dirty synths, and Rihanna and Jay at their best," he continued. "We are very happy with the song, and Jay’s verse is crazy. Same with Rihanna’s part.”
Rihanna previously tweeted that there would only be one guest feature on the album, which releases November 21st.
