Rihanna - "We Found Love"

For whatever reason, Rihanna recruited British dance-music goofball Calvin Harris to produce “We Found Love,” her new single, which means it’s a finely polished, absolutely cheesed-out rave banger. The track cranks the house theatrics of “Only Girl (In The World)” way past 11, and its vintage early-’90s organ-bloops and passionately meaningless chorus are enough to make the Crystal Waters fan in me misty. I like it! Listen below.

Rihanna’s as-yet-untitled new album is out 11/21. It will probably be huge. That single cover art is so awesome.

  1. Even that photo of Rihanna is straight outta 1993. All she’s missing is a pair of Doc Martens and some neon-colored, faux graffiti typography.

    • I’d say it’s more like 1984. Check Madonna’s “Borderline” music video on youtube. In the scenes where she wears the jeans, she looks and feels the same as Rihanna does above.

      I liked that song better than any other in her two previous albums btw.

      • The whole “Borderline” video looks like Rihanna’s “new” look overal, but check particularly on 0:53 of Madonna’s music video. When I saw the Rihanna picture, that’s exactly what came to mind.

  2. Another #1 for Rihanna?

  3. She’s obviously jumping on an alternative bandwagon for profit. Seriously Sterogum, Rihanna coverage?

  4. The pic above makes me think of Alisha from Misfits.

  5. why is this on here? seriously. it annoys me.

  6. Come on, everyone, it’s better than Rude Boy or S&M. For Rihanna, We Found Love is pretty good.

  7. I hates the idea of collabs between EDM artist and Pop singers…. Beyonce vs. Diplo, Leona Lewis vs. Avicii, David Guetta vs. Sia/Rihanna/bla bla, and now this??? Come on people, EDM don’t really need a promotion from Pop music, we’d rather be underground….

  8. What the fuck is she doing here? Seriously, first you talk about Tom Waits and then, like it is the same, you talk about this girl?? what the fuck is wrong with you guys?
