#Navy rejoice! Rihanna‘s brand new songs, “As Real As You And Me” and “Dance In the Dark,” from her upcoming animated DreamWorks film Home have just arrived, and they’re absolutely fantastic! They follow last month’s “Towards The Sun,” which is the leading cut from the soundtrack set to hit stores next week on March 27th. First up we the Rodney Jerkins-produced “As Real As You And Me,” a stunning slow-burning, piano-driven ballad that is easily on the same level as Unapologetic‘s “Stay.” Love! Love! Then there’s “Dancing In The Dark,” a feel-good pop number produced and written by frequent collaborators Stargate and Ester Dean. The song kind of plays out like an updated version of Ri‘s Talk That Talk smash “You Da One” with its fresh, island-influenced vibe and thick, throbbing midtempo beat. “I wanna dance in the dark / And never stop We’re gonna light up the night / Like shooting stars / Whenever you hear the sound Don’t be alarmed / Oh, oh, oh, dancing in the dark,” Ri swoon-ily sings. Sounds like an instant anthem to me!
