The song, whose release date has not yet been set, can be heard on TV and radio personality Ryan Seacrest's website. The track was produced by Stargate, a Norwegian producing team behind Rihanna's previous tracks "Please Don't Stop the Music" and "Hate That I Love You."

"I have never been this excited about any body of work, like i am about this round," the 22-year-old pop and R&B artist told the fan site RihannaDaily.com in a chat session: "I'm gonna miss the rated r era too, but NOTHING compares to the album i just made. The name of my brand new upcoming album is LOUD! Get LOUD everybody # get crazy # get excited # cuz im pumped."

"Only Girl (In the World" contains the lyrics: "I want you to love me, like I'm a hot pie / Keep thinkin' of me, doin' what you like /So boy forget about the world cuz it's gon' be me and you tonight /I wanna make your bed for ya, then imma make you swallow your pride."

Rihanna recently received her own wax figure at the Madame Tussauds museum in Washington, D.C. Studio artists from Madame Tussauds, which also operates museums in places such as London, New York and Los Angeles, created the figure after studying hundreds of photographs and videos of Rihanna.

Mimicking her appearance in 2009, the singer's wax clone has a partially shaved hairstyle with sweeping bleached blonde bangs. The figure is dressed in a black outfit donated by Rihanna herself, which includes a lace corset, a fitted jacket, skinny pants and silk heels.

Rihanna no longer resembles her wax figure and has in recent months donned a short, red hairstyle. She recently posted a photo of a botched hairstyling attempt on her Twitter page, saying: "New hair....new curling iron BURN."
