RihannaDaily can confirm that “Te Amo” (produced by Stargate), is indeed Rihanna’s follow up “Rated R” single to “Rude Boy”. “Te Amo” is Spanish for I Love You. As we all know, it was the only track which leaked on the internet that made it on “Rated R”. It is one of the most different tracks on the album, beautifully written by James Fauntleroy, topped the Brazilian charts and made the Top 60 in Sweden earlier this year even without an official release.
Based on the feedback and poll results, whether the majority disagrees, we should help support it regardless, “Rated R” is a masterpiece. It will do incredibly well especially in the Hispanic markets.
Make sure to look out for her performance of “Te Amo” on American Idol next Wednesday! The music video is being shot sooner than you think! Stay tuned for more details.
The Styled To Rock competition launches with a nationwide search for cutting-edge designers looking to take their craft to the next level. Rihanna will personally select the 12 designers.
