This year will be a very busy one for Rihanna, as she’ll be releasing both her upcoming, eighth studio album and the Home soundtrack. With the era for the former already kicking, the songstress has now premiered a song from the animated film and it’s titled “Towards The Sun”.
BBC Radio 1 premiered the track out of nowhere last week, as a first sample from the film’s soundtrack. The empowering pop tune is totally different from what one would expect to hear from Rihanna, unless they’re a huge fan of her Coldplay duet, “Princess Of China” - which they should be, really. The pounding drums take the lead in the atmospheric production and the songstress makes exquisite use of her falsetto on top of it. Even though Chris Martin never appears, she pulls it off perfectly on her own.
"Towards The Sun" serves as the first official single to be lifted from the Home Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Even though the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Charli XCX among other join Rihanna on the record, she’s the one with the most tracks on it, as it was originally meant to be completely helmed by her. Take a sneak peek at the music video below and listen to the entire track here.
