Rihanna Will Get Back To Pop This Fall With New Single “Only Girl”
Between her hit single “Rude Boy” and her guest stint on Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie,” Rihanna has racked up 10 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 this year. So to keep the ball rolling, the sturdy pop queen is unleashing a new single called “Only Girl” in September.
All Headline News notes that “Only Girl” is a dance track, and it’ll serve as the preview to her upcoming fifth album. Ri Ri’s as-yet-untitled LP is due out by year’s end and will feature collaborations with producers she’s worked with before—Tricky Stewart (“Umbrella,” “Hard”) and Stargate (“Rude Boy,” “Don’t Stop The Music,” “Take A Bow,” “Hate That I Love You”).
As Rihanna mentioned in an interview earlier this year, her next album will be a return to straight-up pop music for the singer—which is good. As much as we applaud her for exploring her darker side on Rated R, it’s just more fun to dance to Ri Ri when she’s in a chipper mood.
