It's Rihanna's New Single "Only Girl (In The World)"

Rihanna's new Stargate-produced single "Only Girl (In The World)" premiered this morning on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM Los Angeles morning show, and it's quite a jam. It's quite dancey, and there are even elements of trance, circa 2000, for all the long-ago-brain-fried, tweaked-out 40-year-olds out there to enjoy. Something for everyone!

Granted, Ri Ri has done much, much better—especially with Stargate ("Take A Bow"). But this track kind of establishes the fact that she's back to upbeat dance-pop and leaving behind the dreary dirges of Rated R.

MTV News reports that Rihanna's upcoming fifth LP will be called Loud, and that the Barbadian singer said, "I'm done recording the whole album."

    Doll, I think it's shit but anything is better than the filth that was Rated R.

    Rated R is a masterpiece!

    It's good, I feel it growing on me. The chorus is fantastic, the verses are a little blah. Love Stargate though.

    Ah, Robbie, your love of "Take A Bow" is as inscrutable to me as my love of, say, McFly probably is to you.

    I'm underwhelmed by this so far, but it should easily fit in on the radio.

    Most of Rated R could be deleted from history with no loss, but that whole era might have been worth it just for "Cold Case Love."
