Rihanna is starring as Tip in Dreamwork’s upcoming animated film, Home. As promo for the movie ramps up, the Bajan beauty has dropped a new single from the soundtrack.
Towards The Sun is a song that seems to be about the main character’s (and the singer’s) journey to find something better within themselves. The production is thematic of traditional Scottish songs with a bit of a rock edge. Rihanna’s performance is the centerpiece of the track, as she excels on these types of tracks that allow her to emote vocally. The lyrics are solid, relatable, and uplifting; telling the story of a positive journey from darkness into light.
Rihanna is in charge of culling songs for the movie’s concept album. As the project’s organizer, she has rounded up the likes of Charli XCX, Jennifer Lopez (who also lends her voice to the film) and Kiesza. Home hits theaters March 27.
