Rihanna has premiered her brand new single, We Found Love.

RiRi's new tune got its first play on Capital FM earlier today, shortly after the 23-year old unveiled the artwork and lyrics on Twitter and Facebook.

Before its premiere, she tweeted: "I'm EXCITED, NERVOUS, ANXIOUS! I cud throw up",  posting the single cover - where Rihanna has ditched her usual sexy attire in favour of a more tom-boy inspired look, as she struts along a street.


Soon after releasing the artwork, the 23-year old posted the full lyrics on her Facebook page, which sees the star sing: "Yellow diamonds in the light/ And we're standing side by side/ As your shadow crosses mine/ What it takes to come alive,"

We Found Love producer Calvin Harris also tweeted about the track, stating: "Excited for people to hear the new @rihanna song, i can tell u she sounds like an #angel!"

Following its premiere, Harris took to Twitter, writing: "Wowow many good comments about song with @Rihanna so happy u like it, i told u she sounded like an angel! THanks #RihannaNavy !! :D"

Since hitting the airwaves, We Found Love has received an overwhelming response online, with the likes of US celebrity blogger Perez Hilton praising the Barbadian beauty stating: "This Rihanna reign just won't let up!!! Slaying."

We Found Love is the first track to be taken from RiRi's currently untitled new album, which is due for release on 21st November.

Full Rihanna - We Found Love lyrics:

Yellow diamonds in the light
And we're standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine
What it takes to come alive

It's the way I'm feeling I just can't deny
But I've gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

Shine a light through an open door
Love and life I will divide
Turn away cause I need you more
Feel the heartbeat in my mind

It's the way I'm feeling I just can't deny
But I've gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
