Rihanna Releasing New Single on Friday
Rihanna is in a generous mood today! The singer released 30-second snippets of the entire track listing of 'Talk That Talk' and now, she lets fans and followers know that 'You Da One' will be the second single from the album.
The current single 'We Found Love' is a smash hit, so RiRi wants to strike while the iron is hot and leave a mark with a brand new song. The song is set to hit radio tomorrow (Nov. 11) and will be available on iTunes at midnight on Sunday.
RiRi tweeted: "#YouDaOne in your ears on Friday & on @itunesmusic on Sunday @ midnight! #WeBadUMad #TTTNov21 lockerz.com/s/15475114." The Rihanna Navy should be stoked and psyched about this batch of good news. We're sort of thinking that RiRi is "Da One" for us!
She also released the single cover, which features a black and white image where's she smoking and baring her long, dark, dagger-like claws. Claws up, RiRi fans.
From the half-a-minute we enjoyed of 'You Da One,' it sounds like it's upbeat and clubby, and has that island/reggae energy that RiRi has been exploring since she released 'Loud' last year. She's certainly in touch with her roots, as she hails from Barbados, and she is distilling some more of the tropical sounds from that region into her pop songs, which are always as fierce as she is!
Tune in to PopCrush tomorrow to enjoy 'You Da One.'
