Rihanna unlocks “You da One” in honor of 11/11/11. The new single from her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk, is a dubstep love song, produced by Dr. Luke.
Known recently for her controversial videos and lyrics, raunchy R&B queen Rihanna is preparing to drop her newest album, Talk That Talk, next week. RiRi has been teasing the release with Unlocked, an interactive Facebook app, and today, she used the app to debut “You da One,” the first track on the album.
RiRi’s Talk That Talk features a Jay-Z cameo on the title track, as well as samples of The xx, Chase & Status and Metallica. Word is, it’s as fierce, sexy and playful as her last two albums, Rated R and Loud.
While today is all about the debut of Rihanna’s new track “You da One,” the songstress took to Twitter for another reason, all together.
“Today is Veterans Day. I would like to send well wishes to the troops for the sacrifices they have made! We thank you dearly! TRUE HEROES!!!” tweeted Rihanna.

“You Da One” will be released as a digital download on Sunday, Nov. 13, but Rihanna already “Unlocked” — aka debuted — the track for preview on her Facebook page and SheKnows has it here.
“This is one of those records, it becomes very addictive,” Rihanna told Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM this morning. “To me, it’s very infectious. The more you listen to it, the more you want to listen to it. It had a reggae vibe, but it’s a sweet little love letter. I love the record. It’s kind of dirty, I love it.”
