Earlier this year, Rihanna became the youngest person in Billboard history to achieve ten number-one singles, and despite the fact that she’s released six singles over the past year, she’s not ready to give up her throne as the queen of radio just yet.
Today, the pop star debuted a new song, “We Found Love,” to her 45 million-plus Facebook fans, and if you choose to “Like” Rihanna, you can listen to the track here.
“We Found Love,” helmed by Scottish DJ/producer Calvin Harris, is the first single off her as-yet-untitled forthcoming sixth(!) album, set to be released on November 21, and it fits right into the dance fixation Rihanna brought on LOUD—but with slightly less club-thumping bombast.
“We found love in a hopeless place,” Rihanna repeats over a David Guetta-ish synth beat. But judging by the single cover, her place doesn’t look too hopeless, does it? Maybe there’s a building on fire outside the frame, and that fire hydrant doesn’t work. I guess that would be hopeless.
What do you think of the new tune? Do you “love” it, or is it “hopeless?”
