Rihanna is no stranger to electronic music, no stranger to smash hits, and has enlisted the right friends to align both concepts. Rihanna found more than just love in a hopeless place when she linked up with Calvin Harris for the airwave dominating “We Found Love,” and her single alongside David Guetta with co-production from Nicky Romero, “Right Now,” has a “Metropolis” sound infiltrating pop culture. This week, the record is taking new direction, away from the national television commercial and and directly into nightlife arena.Amongst a remix package that includes artists such as Sick Individuals and Justin Prime, Dyro continues his blazing-hot summer with the premiere rendition, his own club mix.
Since Rihanna released Unapologetic last year, nearly all of her dance-pop records have seen commercial success, including her collaboration with David Guetta. “Right Now” has been her most recent record to take global airwaves by storm, lead by the production from David Guetta and Nicky Romero. On the way comes the track’s remix package, which will feature takes from Revealed star Dyro. With a club mix and radio edit complete for the package, Dyro swaps the “Metropolis” sound for his own progressive chord work, giving “Right Now” yet another facet of electronic appeal.
Nicky Romero is the latest dance music producer to cross over into the pop arena after co-producing “Right Now” with David Guetta for Rihanna’s new album Unapologetic. In a recent interview with MTV News, Romero opened up about the production that he is “super proud of.” While working together in London’s Metropolis Studios, Guetta suggested crafting some beats for Rihanna, and Nicky jumped at the task.
After praising Rihanna’s appeal and attitude, Nicky told MTV News about the process, explaining, “we played a few songs that we made, a few hip-hop songs and a few dance songs and a lot of stuff… and she was like ‘Yeah, I want to have this song combined with that world. And actually I want both worlds to glue together and make it one thing.’” Check out the interview below the break to find out how Nicky Romero fused dance with pop for a production strong enough to land on Rihanna’s album.

Nicky Romero and David Guetta unite once more, on a production for neither Protocol or Jack Back, but for Rihanna’s new album Unapologetic. If you’re expecting this latest collaboration to live up to the pop sounds of “Wild One Two,” think again. “Right Now” boasts gritty synths that juxtapose the melodic elements, striking resemblance to their own “Metropolis” with a fair balance of influence from both Guetta and Romero. Certainly not your typical radio track — think Beatport release with a Rihanna vocal.
