Rihanna debuted her new single, “We Found Love“, last week and it’s already on fire. Not only is it being well received by fans and critics, but it’s already infiltrating clubs hardcore. Trust me, I already heard it several times during my epic weekend in Las Vegas celebrating a friend’s 30th birthday. While Rihanna’s fans were drooling over new music from their idol, the Bajan singer filmed the music video over the weekend. It hasn’t even been released yet, but has already stirred up some drama. Keep reading to find out.

Rihanna is about to kick-off the European leg of her “Loud” tour this Thursday in Belfast, North Ireland. The singer landed earlier than expected to the surprise of many. Turns out, the former redheaded singer was in town to film her new visual before the mayhem of touring Europe began. Once again, director Melina Matsoukas shot the music video for the Calvin Harris-produced track. Matsoukas also directed Rihanna for her “Rude Boy” clip and Jennifer Lopez for “So Into You“.

During the 2-day shoot, Rihanna had an encounter with a man not to pleased with her wardrobe. While filming scenes at a grain field, the owner of the property ordered the Bajan singer off his lot. Farmer Graham found her behavior and attire inappropriate. He also suggested she read the bible and get more acquainted with God. Here’s what Graham told BBC.

Rihanna Debuts New Single, “We Found Love”

In: Music, Tyrell

Earlier this week, I informed you that Rihanna would be dropping a new single today via the radio. Well, I now have your first listen at the new track which was produced by DJ and producer, Calvin Harris. This will be the official lead-off single for Rihanna’s upcoming studio album which is set for release now on November 21st.

The tracked titled “We Found Love” is quite a departure from Rihanna’s current sound that we’re used to from her Loud disc. This new song sounds like it comes straight off the latest Ministry of Sound album. The pulsing beat and deep synths are so infectious. Rihanna’s vocals also sound absolutely amazing! The lyrics ring out:

Yellow diamonds in the light / And we’re standing side by side / As your shadow crosses mine / What it takes to come alive / It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny / But I’ve gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place

The song was set to be sent out to radio this morning, but was only going to played if Rihanna fans could unlock it through a series of missions. Mission 1 revealed the new logo, Mission 2 revealed the lyrics and Mission 3 allowed the song to air. 10 more missions remain so you can only imagine what is left to be revealed. Listen to We Found Love below. You’re going to love it!

Just when you thought you hadn’t had enough of Rihanna’s album Loud, the songster from Barbados dropped a bomb on us all and told us to prepare for the release of her sixth studio album this coming December. What? I was just getting into singing “Cheers” at the top of my lungs on a Friday night gearing up for a night on the town. However, news of the lead-off single has me really excited for what’s to come.

It has been announced that the first single off the new disc will be produced by DJ and producer, Calvin Harris. So. Stoked. A Def Jam rep has confirmed with Rap-Up that the single will be called “We Found Love”. With Harris at the helm, it’s sure to be a party track ready to kick off everyone’s weekend. We’ve also read that the single is “coming soon,” although for me, it can’t be soon enough. I also just learned that the single will be sent out to radio on Thursday morning so make sure you tune into your favorite radio station to get your first listen.

Calvin Harris has had some pretty hot chart toppers in the UK including his single “Flashback” which peaked at #2 in the UK. He is also the mastermind behind the infectious track with Kelis titled “Bounce.” If this is the sound he’s bring to a Rihanna record, I cannot wait. While we don’t have a preview clip or anything of this new single, I can treat you to a little Calvin Harris instead. Check out his track “Flashback” below.

Nicki Minaj & Rihanna “Fly” In New Music Video

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

What perfect timing for Nicki Minaj to release her music video for “Fly” on the day of the 2011 MTV VMAs in Los Angeles. The song (which I love) features Rihanna and I’m so glad that island girl was present in the video as well.

The video is set at the scene of a plane crash (get it…”Fly”) where Nicki pulls up in her ride, then checks out the wreckage. She wraps from the burning pieces as well as the wing of the plane. My guess is that part of the video was filmed at the plane crash site at Universal Studios. In true Minaj fashion, she sports several amazing wigs & outfits in the video.

Rihanna brings the flame to the crash site with her fiery red hair, walking & singing with Nicki partway through the video. So yeah, they don’t really “Fly” together as I may have led you to believe with my title, but hopefully you’ll settle for walking. To be honest, my favorite part of the video was actually seeing these two ladies walk side by side, considering they both have such a commanding presence.

Rihanna’s Says “Cheers” With New Video

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

When Rihanna released her Loud album, one of my favorite tracks on the list was her latest single Cheers (Drink To That). I couldn’t help but enjoy the hook of fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne which originally appeared in her song I’m With You. It also didn’t hurt that we were playing this song in Donovan’s Jeep on a road trip to Seattle with Brian and Patrick. Let’s just say we did our fair share of “cheersing” that weekend.

In Rihanna’s latest music video, she has compiled a number of various clips to encompass her current tour and trips back to her home of Barbados. Avril even makes a few cameos riding a skateboard into a pool and raising a red plastic beer cup to the camera. We even get to see a softer side Rihanna when she is with family and a little boy comes and gives her a big bear hug. It’s quite cute.

While I enjoy all the clips, I have never been a huge fan of videos such as this. I’d rather see the artist pull out a scenario or do a performance. However, I know she’s busy being on tour and stuff so I get it. Fortunately, this hasn’t changed my opinion of the song so T.G.I.F.“Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, I’ll drink to that, ya-e-ya!”

Check Out The First Trailer For “Battleship”

In: Donovan, Movies

You just sank my battleship!” Man, I loved playing this game as a kid. When I first heard the classic board game was being adapted for the big screen, I was a little perplexed. Battleship was fun and all, but how were they going to create a full-length film based on a game where you sank your opponent’s fleet of ships. Simple, add aliens. DUH.

The newly-released trailer for “Battleship” looks like “Transformers” meets “Independence Day“. Sound confused? Watch the trailer and you’ll see. Even if the storyline sucks balls, at least we have a bit of eye candy to look at in the form of “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard and “Friday Night Lights” hottie Taylor Kitsch. Despite looking absolutely nothing alike, the two play brothers. Yummy. The film also marks the acting debut of Rihanna. I watched the trailer a couple of times, but couldn’t see her. Maybe she takes form as that huge alien or her acting is that wooden. LOL. Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker and Josh Pence round out the cast. Here’s the movie’s plot courtesy of Wikipedia.

A story of an international Navy fleet engaged in a very dynamic and intense battle against an alien race known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth, on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with a navy fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans.

Poor Megan Fox. Apparently, she’s not irreplaceable. First Rosie Huntington Whiteley replaced her on Transformers and now Fox is losing her other regular gig. Rihanna has been tapped to become the new global ambassador for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans. The “What’s My Name” singer is the latest celebrity to show off their body for the brand, joining the likes of Victoria Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham.

Rihanna will front the Fall-Winter 2011 ad campaign with the first images rolling out in September. Famed fashion photographer Steven Klein has already snapped the “S&M” singer in New York. RiRi has no problem shedding her clothes for a great picture, so I expect some really racy photos coming our way.

Fox reportedly earned $2 million for posing in her underwear. With that kind of cash no longer coming in, I wonder if Fox is secretly hoping “Jennifer’s Body” or “Jonah Hex” sequel gets green lit. LOL. Mama’s gotta find a way to pay for that botox she’s apparently “not” using.

On Friday night, Rihanna was performing at Dallas’ American Airlines Center on her LOUD Tour when a fire broke out on stage that brought the concert to early wrap! As part of the show, at the end of her “California King Bed” performance, fireworks start raining down from the set and Rihanna left the stage on cue. But then something went wrong with the pyro. A fire broke out above the stage and everyone at the concert ended up having to be evacuated. Luckily, she had performed most of her hits already, including “Shut Up And Drive,” “Disturbia,” “Only Girl (In The World),” and “S&M,” but there were still many she didn’t end up getting the chance to perform.

Here’s what Rihanna said on Twitter following the incident: “Dallas!!! We set the stage on FYAH tonight!!! LITERALLY!!!…I was havin so much fun wit yall too!!! I gotta come back man!!” She later added, “Dallas yall CRAY!!! Love this f***n place! Glad u guys are safe!!! I promise I’ll be back!!! Heading into a production meeting to find out exactly what happened!!! Keep u posted.”
