It has been an exciting week for Rihanna fans. First, her fans known as the Rihanna Navy unlocked her second single titled You Da One which debuted on the radio yesterday. But, a day before hand, an album preview showed up online sending the web into a tizzy sharing the excitement of what was being dubbed as Rihanna’s best album to date. On the preview, I selected a few songs that I thought were going to be killer. Now, the full album has leaked online allowing for me to hear one of my picks in full.
The track Where Have You Been was explained by VH1 as possibly her biggest dance floor hit since Please Don’t Stop The Music. (Umm, hello?! Did they not hear We Found Love?) Regardless, this track is SMOKIN’ HOT and I am absolutely obsessed with it. The track even samples a little bit of Johnny Cash’s “I’ve Been Everywhere” which is a nice added touch to the song’s verses.
The track was written by Gottwald, Dean, and We Found Love’s mastermind, Calvin Harris. However, you can attribute it’s catchy sound, rhythm and hook to co-producers Dr. Luke and Ester Dean. The break down after the chorus is dubstep meets dirty synth techno at it’s finest. Get your glow sticks and soothers out friends, this one is strictly for the clubs and I’m sure a few people are about to go mental over this track tonight in the dark. Check it out below.
