You’ve heard Rihanna give in to her Eurodisco urges on “We Found Love,” the synth-pounding first single off her upcoming album Talk That Talk.
Now RiRi’s releasing second single “You Da One,” an island-breezy tribute to some guy who’s got her “dreaming all the time”:
A far cry from the tortured minor-key Rihanna of “S&M” or “Man Down,” “You Da One” is a sweet pop song with just a touch of a dubstep groove — the perfect opener to set the tone for an album that embraces Caribbean rhythms, reggae, and pulsing house beats.
Rihanna tapped Dr. Luke to produce “You Da One,” though Talk That Talk also finds her working with Stargate, Bangladesh, and The-Dream. Jay-Z also makes a cameo on the title track.
Though it’s not out until Nov. 21, Talk That Talk is already off to a promising start. On Thursday, Rihanna released track teasers from the album, earning a boost in pre-sales and pushing the album up to no. 12 on the iTunes chart.
