The Wanted: 'New single divided us'

The Wanted have admitted that their new single, ‘Walks Like Rihanna,’ divided the group’s opinion when they first heard it.

The chart-topping boyband, who recently claimed that the Bajan superstar is a fan of the song, told Digital Spy backstage at Capital FM’s Summertime Ball that they understand why the track has received such a mixed response.

Max said: “We’ve had to grow on it quite a lot cos it’s a lot more poppier than what we normally do. But looking at the reaction out there today, it was like, yeah, people seem to like it.”

Tom then added: "It’s a weird one cos when we first heard it, we were like, erm, that’s a bit weird. But after two or three listens, it literally wouldn’t stop going around in my head. I was like this is a no-brainer, it’s a hit.”

Produced by Dr. Luke (Britney Spears, Katy Perry), the track will be released in the UK on June 23, the day before the band’s reality series, The Wanted Life, premieres on E!.
