Even though Rihanna recently released her single “Cheers (Drink To That)” off of her latest album, Loud, she’s already on to the next one. Today Rihanna dropped “We Found Love,” a Calvin Harris-produced track off of her yet-untitled upcoming album, set to drop this November. Overachiever much?
After revealing the lyrics and the song title yesterday on her Facebook and Twitter, “We Found Love” hit the internet today, and fans are hearing a whole new side to their favorite Barbados singer. RiRi’s taking us to da club, y’all! The synth-heavy track opens as Rihanna calls out for the dude she’s crushin’ on: “Yellow diamonds in the light/And we’re standing side by side/As your shadow crosses mine/What it takes to come alive/It’s the way I’m feeling, I just can’t deny/But I’ve gotta let it go.” And then the song gets straight up “Jersey Shore” in this b****: glow sticks, fist pumping, hair gel, the whole nine. And we mean that in a good way.
While experienced UK DJ Harris’ influence on the song is palpable, “We Found Love” is still very much a Rihanna track, as she’s always known how to get people to the dance floor. But this time around, she’s getting them to the dance floor and making them sweat their faces off, which coincidentally, only looks good on Rihanna.
