Rihanna's New Single Gets Premiere Date
You thought that Rihanna reign would let up? Time to put down the Haterade. RiRi, who’s fresh off the success of her fourth album Rated R, is finishing up her fifth release, with plans in place to debut its first single next week.
Ryan Seacrest will premiere “Only Girl (In the World)” on Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 3 a.m. PST/6 a.m. EST. The dance track sees the Bajan singer linking back up with Norwegian production team Stargate, who produced Rated R‘s No. 1 hit “Rude Boy,” as well as “Hate That I Love You” and “Don’t Stop the Music.”
“In less than 10 dayz ima send u sumn special, and ur gonna play it OVER and OVER, like I’m the only girl in the world!” Rihanna tweeted to Seacrest earlier this week.
Her as-yet-untitled album, due in November, is expected to be more upbeat than its darker predecessor. “It’s about getting past any drama and just being happy to be alive,” producer Sean Garrett told staging-rapup.kinsta.cloud of the record he submitted. “It’s an encouraging record. It feels great and it’s got great tempo.”
Rihanna wrapped her “Last Girl on Earth” tour last month and is currently in Hawaii shooting her theatrical debut Battleship.
