After releasing a teaser snippet last week, Glee’s Naya Rivera visited a radio station for the world premiere of her first single, “Sorry.” You can listen to the track below!

Naya Rivera stopped by Power 106 radio station in Los Angeles yesterday to be on hand for the first spin of her debut single as a solo artist. The track, titled “Sorry,” features rapper Big Sean, who is also Rivera’s boyfriend. Sean was also in attendance at Power 106 for the single’s premiere.

Listen to “Sorry,” by Naya Rivera feat. Big Sean:

Based on the lyrics, “Sorry” is a song about the couple’s relationship, with Rivera’s parts warning other girls to stay away from her man, and Big Sean’s verse expressing his affection and admiration for Rivera. Sean also raps about Rivera in Drake’s “All Me,” another track in which he is featured.

The track has both pop and urban vibes reminiscent of 90s R&B, and features Rivera singing in her upper register. This is a quite a contrast to her most recognisable work on Glee, where she has tackled the music of deep-voiced divas like Amy Winehouse and Adele.

Glee stars Matthew Morrison, Mark Salling, Chord Overstreet and Darren Criss all perform as solo musicians, and both Lea Michele and Amber Riley have also been working on their own albums, but Naya Rivera is the first of the Glee ladies to officially release music as a solo artist since becoming a part of the Fox show.

Production for Glee was recently pushed back in the wake of the unexpected passing of Cory Monteith. Rivera was one of the first amongst the Glee cast to make a statement regarding Monteith’s death, and recently held a moment of silence for her colleague during an event at the Giffoni Film Festival in Italy.

The star returned to set this week to begin shooting season 5, so Rivera’s blossoming career as a pop star doesn’t mean you’ll see any less of her as Santana Lopez on Glee.

Are you a fan of “Sorry” by Naya Rivera? Is it the style you were expecting from this Glee star?

    i really like it! but couldve done without the generic autotuney part :/

    • Joshua Harris

      I agree but I know that if/when she performs it live she could belt it out no problem.

  • sarahd15

    I’m enjoying it, it’s growing on me lol

    When I read the description of what the song was about, I assumed I wouldn’t like it. (Lez be honest, I am a fan of Naya because I am a fan of her lady-loving alter ego.) But, actually, I enjoyed the catchiness of this song despite myself.

  • Marie

    It’s pretty catchy. Part of me wishes it was more like Amy Winehouse, but I still think this was fun, and if this is what she wants to do, power to her.

  • Maritere Domínguez

    Wished she had sticked with the soulish part of her, her voice is so perfect for soul songs, but I guess this one was ok…

  • Riana-Tiana Menezes

    She kind of sounds like Jasmine Villegas.

    I cannot stand songs that have sirens in them. It makes me feel like I need to get outta the way when I’m driving. Arghhh!

    Other than that this is pretty good. :P

    I love Naya but this song feels like it’s a dime a dozen, just a radio hit. I wish she would do something more soulful, a la Adele or Amy Winehouse. This song doesn’t really highlight her amazing vocals.

    • Strumchick

      Amen, sister.

  • em

    I’m disappointed. I wish she would have gone for more soulful music like Amy Winehouse rather than radio-hit music that will just get lost with all the other music that sound just like this. She’s got an incredible voice, i wish that would be the focus instead of making popular music that will sell

  • Danika

    This feels like SUCH a waste of her talents. Her voice in one of my favorites in Glee and here it just sounds sort of whiny. It’s also just another catchy run of the mill radio song that will be annoying in three weeks and forgotten in a few months.

  • Klaine Is On Fire ♥

    I’ve had this song in my head since it first premiered! :)

  • Marie

    My one big issue is that Big Sean is a. Not my thing, and b. I find him a problematic person (he had a sexual assault charge two years ago, and that makes me feel sketchy about him). Naya sounds fine, for what the song is, but I can’t buy it since I don’t feel comfortable supporting him.

  • rita

    Just so you know Marie, the charges were dropped…

  • IMPRESSED

    This song is so good and catchy! If you wanted a ballad just WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE and appreciate this song for what it is!! She said she didn’t want to come out with a ballad first cause everyone already knows she can sing!
