New Song: The Wanted, ‘Walks Like Rihanna’

Listen to a preview of The Wanted's "She Walks Like Rihanna."

Want to hook up with The Wanted? Just learn how to “Walk Like Rihanna.” Done and done!

Call us behind the times, but we didn’t know that “Walking Like Rihanna” was “a thing.” But thanks to The Wanted‘s aptly titled jam “Walks Like Rihanna,” it’s fully becoming one! Sure, it might make more sense to sing about performing like Rihanna, posing naked like Rihanna, grabbing your crotch like Rihanna, or even cradling a baby like Rihanna, but walking? That’s a new one! And now that the full track has been unleashed, it’s almost as if the boys have written a comprehensive “how-to” laundry list of things they want in a potential girlfriend. To which we say: PRAISE! We need all the help we can get!

Featuring some spot-on, sparkling pop production from Dr. Luke, “Walks Like Rihanna” is the boys’ ode to their idea of the perfect woman. And here we thought the boys were looking for a hot chick with a slammin’ bod who looks like Rihanna. NOPE! Turns out the boys’ dream girl: “can’t sing/ She can’t dance/ But who cares?/ She walks like Rihanna” Then, they elaborate: “With the way she moves you’ll want to kiss her/ She’ll be the girl of your dream if you can close your eyes.” So, what does this all boil down to? If you want to hook up with a Wanted bro, you’d better start walking in heels…and maybe sign up for a dance class, because if you walk like Rihanna, chances are you’ll have to dance like her, too. Just a guess.
