Rihanna performs onstage during DirecTV Super Saturday Night hosted by Mark Cuban's AXS TV and Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan at Pendergast Family Farm on Jan. 31, 2015 in Glendale, Arizona. 

A new clip surfaced online this week of Rihanna shooting an ad for Dior, soundtracked by a rumored Florence + the Machine-sampling track from the forthcoming #R8.

The song playing sounds like a moody version of Florence + The Machine's 2011 track "Only If For A Night," which, as The Fader notes, aligns with "news from January of this year that a song called "A Night," which attributes writing credit to Florence Welch, had been registered with ASCAP under Rihanna's name."

Listen to the new clip below.
