Rihanna’s “You Da One”: Listen To Her New Single

Yesterday we all heard snippets of all the tracks on the standard edition of Rihanna’s forthcoming LP Talk That Talk (out November 21), and today the album’s second single “You Da One” has arrived. It’s a bombastic reggae/dubstep hybrid produced by Dr. Luke that’s miles away from the sound of previous single “We Found Love”. Listen below.

VH1 noted that Talk That Talk is the dirtiest pop album since Madonna’s 1992 LP Erotica. If that’s the case, “You Da One” must be one of the more tame jams on the record (though there is this lyrical bit of raunch, during the breakdown: “Yes I’m kinda crazy, that’s what happens, baby / when you put it down you shouldn’t-a give it to me good like that, shouldn’t-a hit it like that, had me yellin’ like that”).

Sorry folks, we’ve had to remove the song for now. We’ll re-post as soon as possible.

Overall, like “We Found Love”, it’s another bright and sunny offering from RiRi, who we’ve come to expect dark things from on occasion. Still, it’s not the most immediately catchy single we’ve heard from her. We’ll chalk it up to being a grower.

What do you think of “You Da One”? Does the song have what it takes to become Rihanna’s 12th #1 single on the Hot 100?

    This is definitely one of the more radio-friendly jams on the record. Although, is it just me, or is this beat really sloooooow for what’s popping on Top40 these days?

    Even though it is a bit slower compared to Rihanna’s usual offerings, it is still really pop! It sounds like a summer jam! It’s also produced by Dr. Luke which usually guarantees some airplay. It’s also a good risk for Rihanna and sounds different from what’s on the radio.

    I thought this one was WAY more catchy than We Found Love. At least it was to me.. I LOVE this song, but for me WFL was definitely a grower.

    This isn’t great, but it fits her formula of coming up with the most silly, hyper-synth hooks that go right to your brain stem, set to come flying out of your mouth without you realizing it while you’re on line at the grocery store. The bridge is weak. But listen, girlfriend is making that money, honey.

    Once again Rihanna has proved that she is not going anywhere anytime soon. This new track “You Da One” just brings us to another level of her career. “My Love is Your Love, Your Love is My Love.”

    [Rihanna]
    Baby, I love you, I need you here

    Baby we meant to be
    You got me, smiling all the time

    Cause you know how to give me that
    You know how to pull me back
    When I go runnin, runnin
    Tryin’ to get away from loving ya
    You know how to love me hard
    I won’t lie, I’m falling hard
    Yep, I’m falling for ya but there’s nothin wrong with that

    [Chorus]
    You da one that I dream about all day
    You da one that I think about always

    You Are The One So I Make Sure I Behave!
    My love is your love, your love is mine

    Baby come, to me now, hold me now
    Make me come alive
    You got the sweetest touch
    I’m so happy, you came in my life

    Cause you know how to give me that
    You know how to pull me back
    When I go runnin, runnin
    Tryin’ to get away from loving ya
    You know how to love me hard
    I won’t lie, I’m falling hard
    Yep, I’m falling for ya but there’s nothin wrong with that

    [Chorus]
    You da one that I dream about all day
    You da one that I think about always
    You Are The One So I Make Sure I Behave!

    You da one that I dream about all day
    You da one that I think about always
    You Are The One So I Make Sure I Behave!
    My love is your love, your love is mine

    And Yes I’m kinda crazy,
    That’s what happens baby,
    When you put it down
    You shouldnt’ve give it to me
    Good like that,
    Shouldnt’ve hit it like that,
    Had me yellin’ like that
    Didn’t know you would’ve had me coming back

    You da one that i’m feeling
    You da one that i’m loving
    Ain’t no other . . . . that’s like you
    No there’s just one, one, one
    No baby just one, one
    I bet you wanna know

    [Chorus
    You da one that I dream about all day
    You da one that I think about always
    You Are The One So I Make Sure I Behave!
    My love is your love, your love is my love

    You da one that I dream about all day
    You da one that I think about always
    You Are The One So I Make Sure I Behave!
    My love is your love, your love is mine
