RiRi doesn’t sing on The Wanted’s new single but she was definitely the inspiration. The British rock group released a 30-second teaser for their new song “She Walks Like Rihanna” today on YouTube.
The Wanted member Tom Parker said:
“We are really excited about this single … We feel it’s a little different from the usual Wanted sound, we’ve stripped it back to pure pop, it’s just a feel-good, fun track. Fun is a good word to describe the video too. Let’s just say it’s got a lot of character.”
Rihanna hasn’t commented on the song yet but there’s a good chance she’ll find it insulting since the chorus of the song talks about someone who can’t dance or sing. But then again, Rihanna might be flattered because it doesn’t matter if you can sing or dance as long as you can walk like Rihana.
The Wanted sing: “She can’t sing, She can’t dance, but who cares? She walks like Rihanna.”
According to USA Today, the group recently shot a video for the song which will premiere on May 7. For now, you can check out a quick 30 second clip of The Wanted’s new single “She Walks Like Rihanna.”
