New Music: The Wanted In ‘Walks Like Rihanna’

June 7, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

UK boy band The Wanted are soon to release their first single of 2013 following their official video to the ‘pure pop summer anthem’, ‘Walks Like Rihanna’.

Co-written and produced by ‘musical genius’ Dr Luke, whose credits include Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Pink and Britney Spears, members Tom, Max, Siva, Jay and Nathan can’t wait for the June 23rd release.

“We are really excited about this single. 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,” Tom said.

“Fun is a good word to describe the video too. Let’s just say it’s got a lot of character.”

2013 has already been a great year for the guys, with their People’s Choice Award win for Favourite Breakout Artist, their US takeover, plus their reality show The Wanted Life kicked off last weekend in the US on E Entertainment Channel and is coming to UK screens very shortly. Plans for a new album coming later this year will no doubt be the icing on the cake for all fans out there.

As you wait for the June 23rd single release, you can catch The Wanted at The Capital FM Summertime Ball on June 9th this weekend. More tour dates are available right here.
