Rihanna has chosen the fun pop track "You Da One" as the official second single from her sixth studio album "Talk That Talk" (November 21st, 2011) - Produced by Dr Luke, and written by Ester Dean, "You Da One" has lots of typical Riri island flavor, sassiness, a hot production (the dubstep breakdown!), and lyrics that will get stuck in your head 'til the end of time. This has 'smash hit' written all over it.

Pitbull has premiered the music video for his club smash "International Love", a collaboration with Chris Brown and the newest single from Mr Worldwide's sixth studio album "Planet Pit" - Watch above! Director David Rousseau described the visual as "It's about the global presence of Mr. Worldwide, how he went from Mr. 305 to being a global phenomenon". "Now the world is his stage". It's basically Pitbull and blond Breezy dancing in front of a green screen as images of different cities, and galaxies flash behind them, plus sexy fine ladies work their stuff for the boys too. It's cheap I know, but they tried to stay in line with the song's 'message' so it's all good in the end. The song is hot though! It'll definitely be a club hit - needs a couple of sick remixes though - and a decent Top 40 smash as well IMO.
