The wait is (almost) over for the Rihanna Navy. The pop star and actress just dropped two new songs for you to whet you whistle while awaiting her full projects. Check ’em inside….
While rocking a slip dress, a brand new Boy Chanel handbag, a Rolling Stones fur coat, and sneakers, Rihanna and her red cup exited Chelsea Piers in NYC yesterday where she was busy at a recording studio.
She topped off her night with the release of two of her new songs of the Home soundtrack, the animated film where she voices the part of lead character Tip.
Rih previously teased the track “Dancing In The Dark,” and now, here’s the full thing:
And the somber ballad, “As Real As You And Me.”
Rihanna recently explained why her new sound — for both her upcoming R8 project and Home — is such a departure from her usual instant pop hits, and it’s all because she wants to focus on creating timeless music. She told MTV News about her new album:
“I’ve made a lot of songs that are really, really big songs. From the jump, they just blow up. And I wanted to kind of get back to — not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever.”
“I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years; I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years. Not any songs that were burnt out. I find that when I get on stage now, I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs. They don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.”
So, is she headed in the right direction?
