It might be wrong but it feels right! That’s Rihanna’s mantra, or at least it is on this new cut, “Lost In Paradise” from her upcoming release, Unapologetic. On the track, which is laced with a pretty haunting electro-beat (one she hums on top of), the singer croons about going through a love that is delusional–among other things–and trying to ignore a broken heart in order to stay in a union that’s miserable on paper, but satisfies the hell out of her: “I can see the darkness, flashing lights, all my fears, won’t deny, Let me stay, lost in paradise.” I guess you could call it the flip version of “We Found Love,” but whatever you call it, the Rihanna Navy is probably going to make it a hit if it makes its way to the radio.
Can’t front, I was definitely nodding my head to this one, because a moody jam from Rihanna is usually a banger. It definitely seems that with this new album, Rihanna is going back to a darker sound that has a bit of the techno-pop edge that her last two albums showcased, but with much deeper lyrics (seriously, we all know Talk That Talk was basically a sex album). I’m interested to see what the album will be working with when it drops on November 19. Check the track out below and let us know what you think! Pass or play?
