Rihanna has debuted her new single “Only Girl In The World.”
The tune premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show early this morning, September 7, and it seems Rihanna has left the “dark” and replaced it with dance.
The singer also revealed in a chat with fans over the weekend that her fifth studio album will be called Loud.
It’s due out on November 2.
“I’m done recording the whole album. I made sure not to let you down with my music! You guys are always defending me, so now you’ve got some great songs to justify it. I didn’t want to go backward and remake [2007’s] Good Girl Gone Bad. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna, and it’s perfect for us.”
She urged her fans to,
“get LOUD everybody, get crazy, get excited, cuz I’m pumped. I’m just gonna be ME, cuz that’s what u guys love the most, and that’s what makes me feel best. Just being normal, normal for me is LOUD! Sassy, fun, flirty, energetic.”
While Rihanna said she’ll miss the Rated R era, she promised that one year after that dark, emotional effort,
“nothing compares to the album I just made.”
