Russian Roulette is the first single off Rihanna’s new album, Rated R. The ballad follows a woman on the verge of taking a turn at the suicide game: “You can see it through my chest/That I’m terrified/But I’m not leaving/I know that I must pass this test/So just pull the trigger.”

The song, which eerily ends with a gunshot, was written and produced by Ne-Yo. The album, Rihanna’s fourth, drops November 23.
