You won't find Rihanna's new single on Spotify—at least not yet, anyway.

"Bitch Better Have My Money" wasn't immediately available to download via iTunes or Google Music, either. Instead, the 27-year-old Barbadian singer chose to debut the track using the Dubsmash video-messaging app, which can be downloaded from either Apple's iTunes store or Google Play. The pop star teased the new single release Wednesday in an Instagram message captioned "#R8," "#BBHMM" and "#March26." (Some music fans were hoping she would release a full album, à la Beyoncé.)

The eight-time Grammy Award winner tweeted a link to listen to the song Thursday morning, writing, "Head to Dubsmash for a sneak peek of my new single #BBHMM!!" She included a link to the app, too.

According to Rihanna's Facebook, each user can also "create your own dub" using the app.

No word yet when the song will be available to purchase or stream via other sources.

Earlier this month, Rihanna teased another song, "Higher," on Instagram.

"Bitch Better Have My Money" is the second single from the singer's upcoming album. On Jan. 25, Rihanna dropped "FourFiveSeconds," a surprise collaboration with Paul McCartney and Kanye West. The single peaked at No. 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and became Rihanna's 26th Top-Ten hit.

Rihanna's most recent album, Unapologetic, was released in November 2012. It spawned seven hit singles: "Diamonds," "Stay," "Pour It Up," "Loveeeeeee Song," "Right Now," "What Now" and "Jump."

The singer voices Gratuity "Tip" Tucci in DreamWorks Animation's Home, in theaters Friday. Rihanna contributed three songs to the soundtrack, including, "Towards the Sun," "As Real as You and Me" and "Dancing in the Dark." Jennifer Lopez, who voices Tip's mother in the movie, also sings "Feel the Light."
