Rihanna to premiere new single 'We Found Love' on Thursday?

September 20, 2011 |  1:37 pm


Rihanna is apparently a very impatient woman.

Just on Friday, Pop & Hiss reported the pop diva was readying a new album pegged for a fall release, and now she’s already announced the album’s lead single.

After teasing lyrics from the track, she let her more than 7 million Twitter followers to know her next hopeful chart-topper is called “We Found Love.” The title quickly become a trending topic.

"We Found Love" is reportedly helmed by Calvin Harris, the Scottish producer/DJ whose single "Bounce" is currently at No. 11 on the Dance Airplay chart. Harris is opening for Rihanna on the European leg of her Loud Tour. 

Though the track was initially thought to impact radio on Oct. 11, the singer and Stockton radio station KWIN have both tweeted that the song could come as early as Thursday.

The singer's latest single, "Cheers (Drink To That)," is currently seated at No. 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
