RIhanna Finds Love In A Hopeless Place On New Album Track

Initially announcing that her album Loud would be re-released, Rihanna later announced through her official Twitter account that she has decided to release a new studio album instead. Rihanna's sixth (untitled) album is due on November 21, 2011 and features her just released single by artist and producer Calvin Harris who is currently topping the dance charts with his tune "Bounce" featuring another favorite, Kelis.

The Calvin Harris sound is very much distinctive on the new track and will no doubt continue Rihanna's reign with his high energy synthetic sound that will keep the Barbados beauty's fans satisfied.

We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris)
Yellow diamonds in the light
And we're standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine
What it takes to come alive
It's the way I'm feeling i just can't deny
But I've gotta let it go
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
Shine a light through an open door
Love and life i will divide
Turn away cause i need you more
Feel the heartbeat in my mind
It's the way I'm feeling i just can't deny
But i've gotta let it go
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
