Rihanna Blesses Us with a New Single, "Towards the Sun"
It’s good to have you back, Rihanna! In a follow up to her recent collaboration “FourFiveSeconds” with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, the singer has just dropped a new single out of the blue. The track "Towards the Sun" debuted on U.K. radio yesterday and will be featured in the animated movie Home, which hits theaters March 27.
"Turn your face towards the sun," Rihanna sings in the slow-building yet euphoric anthem. "Let the shadows fall behind you." In Home, Rihanna voices the lead character, an 11-year-old girl named Tip who teams up with a friendly alien named Oh (voiced by Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons) after his alien race invades Earth. And on top of "Towards the Sun" and voicing the adorable Tip, Rihanna has also curated the soundtrack, which features songs by Jennifer Lopez, Charli XCX, and Kiesza. Sounds pretty epic.
