The Wanted are channeling Rihanna in their new song – literally!

The hit UK boy band are preparing to release a new single from their upcoming album. “Walks Like Rihanna” embodies a true pop anthem that we can see becoming a summer anthem. The band uploaded a 30 second preview on their website of what fans can expect from the new song.

“We are really excited about this single,” Tom Parker said in a statement. “We feel it’s a little different from the usual Wanted sound, we’ve stripped it back to pure pop, it’s just a feel good, fun track. Fun is a good word to describe the video too. Let’s just say it’s got a lot of character.”

The Wanted — whose E! reality series, The Wanted Life, premieres on June 2 — will be dropping the music video for “Walks Like Rihanna” on May 7, followed by the single’s release on June 23. We’re just wondering if pop diva RiRi will make a cameo in the music video.
