“She can’t sing. She can’t dance. But who cares? She walks Rihanna.” The British man band just released the full-length version of their new single, “Walk Like Rihanna.” Produced by Dr. Luke, The Wanted declare they “stripped it back to pure pop.” I didn’t realize their previous sound was so cutting edge ;) The track was recorded before band member Nathan Sykes underwent vocal chord surgery. For now, he’s on an “unforeseen hiatus.” Here’s what their manager Scooter Braun said.
“We’re worried, but he’s in recovery right now and we’re being optimistic. Our prayers go out to him and right now we don’t know. We’re just waiting to see how he reacts to the surgery,” – Scooter Braun
The music video for the track will debut on May 7. It was shot in Los Angeles where the boys filmed their upcoming E! reality show premiering on June 2. Even with only a couple of listens, I already find myself singing the lyrics in my head over and over. Definitely catchy. Check out their new single below.
What do you think of the track? Do you think Rihanna will appreciate the shout out? Or do you think she’ll take it as a dig? Sound off below.
