Based on her last two singles, Russian Roulette and Hard, it feels like Rihanna’s upcoming album Rated R will feature a remarkably different sound than we’re used to from the urban-pop starlet. We all know the hard times she’s been through recently, and those emotions have come out in her recent music. On potential (next) single Cold Case Love, she departs from that dark sound and gives us an emotional anthem. Produced by Justin Timberlake and Rob Knox, the track starts off with a soft organ and piano melody, then segues into Rihanna belting out the some if the track’s deep, somber lyrics: “We opened up a cold case love, and it got the best of us.” The track’s more of an epic ode to losing out on love than a radio hit, but something tells me Rihanna fans will love it all the same. The highly, highly anticipated Rated R is slated to drop November 23. Keep it locked for all the latest.
