Listen now to the full version of UK boyband The Wanted's brand new single, the much-controversial "Walks Like Rihanna" which was unveiled exclusively on Capital FM on Monday morning (April 29). The 'pure pop' song is the lead single from The Wanted's upcoming third studio album due in stores later in 2013 via Island/Mercury.
Let's get the positive out of the way first...All things considered, I think "Walks Like Rihanna" will be a smash hit in the UK. Rest of the world...we'll see. The negative? I just...I just don't believe a song like this exists, lol. Really? Name-checking the one and only "Rihanna" on a lead single title?. The Wanted have truly hit a new low. Are they afraid their 'moment' is over or what?. Because this is just a little too desperate for my taste.
I know this ain't supposed to be about shading Rihanna down, but I'm just so curious to see RiRi's reaction when she hears the opening of the chorus, "She can't sing, she can't dance...", lol. Although The Wanted wanna explain over and over again this is more of Rihanna praise track, 'SHADE' is the first thing it'll pop up on anyone's head the first time you hear it. "Walks Like Rihanna" is produced and co-written by Dr. Luke and it will be officially released on iTunes UK next June 23.
