Rihanna’s latest track is definitely going to make you want to throw your tentacles — er, hands — in the air like you just don’t care.
RiRi’s new song “Dancing in the Dark” is featured in the animated flick “Home” — and on the upcoming soundtrack for the film — and MTV News has your first listen in this exclusive clip from the uber adorable family film. Watch as Oh the alien learns how to shake his “boove thang” below:
“I think music is important to every film, every film,” Rihanna said in a statement to MTV News. “I think it sets the tone, in the moment. It creates the sensitivity, the suspense, no matter what film it is, especially in animation. I’ve had an incredible time making music for this film. I’ve worked really closely with Tim Johnson, the director, just to make sure that lyrically, and musically the songs were matching exactly what he needed — what he needed the audience to feel in that moment.”
In “Home,” Rihanna voices the role of Tip, an adventurous young girl who becomes Oh’s (Jim Parsons) first friend on Earth. Together, they go on a quest to save Oh from his own people and in the process, realize that being different is something to be celebrated.
“Home” lands into theaters on March 27. You can pre-order the soundtrack now!
