Rihanna – “You Da One”
Rihanna’s latest single, the house-inflected “We Found Love,” has already conquered the world, and we’ve learned that her new album Talk That Talk features an xx sample and a Jay-Z guest verse. And now “You Da One,” the second single from the album, is making the internet rounds. Compared to “We Found Love,” it’s restrained and summery, with a happily summery chorus and some dubstep bass-rumbles on the bridge. And it’s worth noting how off-kilter the entire beat is. Bass-music production techniques, it seems, have finally subtly bled through into big-money pop. We’ll probably be hearing this song carpet-bomb the radio over the next few months, but give it its first listen at Just Jared.
Talk That Talk is out 11/21 on Def Jam.
