When rumours started circulating early last week that Rihanna was about ready to drop her new single We Found Love, I have to admit I was left slightly confused. How has a woman who has spent the last few months relentlessly touring and doing promo even found the time to record new material? Then it clicked.
She was working with Calvin Harris, who is widely renowned for keeping the recording process as decentralised as possible. He takes care of the production process back at home, only requiring Rihanna to record her vocals from wherever she pleases. The perfect scenario for one of the busiest women in the music industry.
Without even listening to We Found Love I already knew it was
#1 material, and after hearing it my thoughts haven’t changed. Her new album drops November 21st and expect it to be heavily dance orientated.
