Less than a day after she unveiled the cover art and the lyrics of "We Found Love", Rihanna debuted the new single on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. The song is expected to be the first single from her new studio album which is coming this fall.
Rihanna recruited Calvin Harris for the single. They were touring buddies in Australia this summer in support of her "Loud" album. "Calvin is the perfect fit for the LOUD Tour. He is going to bring something unique and fun for the fans," she previously said.
Rihanna admitted that she was nervous in debuting the song. While on the way of leaving Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Tuesday, September 20, she tweeted, "I could throw up, [to be honest]." Hours after the single was unleashed, Rihanna has retweeted her fans' good responses to her song. "I LOVE u rt back!!! *hugs the navy*" she wrote.
