After some slight delays, Mike WiLL Made-It is picking up right where he left off with Ransom 2. Tonight, he’s released his highly-anticipated single with Rihanna called “Nothing’s Promised.”
The single was first teased back in July of last year in an extended preview that highlighted vocals from RiRi. Check it out below.

Earlier this week, the superproducer hinted that “Nothing’s Promised” will be releasing on Friday on iTunes. It’s the second time these two musical forces have come together. The first came through a collaboration for Rihanna’s 2012 Unapologetic album for “Pour It Up.”

Ransom 2 has suffered from setbacks mainly because Mike WiLL wanted to feature Gucci Mane on the project. The Atlanta rapper, who was recently released from federal prison after serving nearly three years on gun possession charge, has been making his way back into the rap game. He collaborated with Mike WiLL on his first post-prison track, “First Day Out Tha Feds,” and plan to do more as the release date for Ransom 2 comes closer. Gucci’s the official host for the tape, so fans shouldn’t be surprised if there’s more than one guest spot from the Trap God.
With Rae Sremmurd’s “By Chance” and Rihanna’s “Nothing’s Promised” as the first offerings from Ransom 2, this tape is already off to a strong start. You can stream the track here.
