New Rihanna Track Leaks In Numerous Markets

Not content to let PEREZ HILTON corner the market on song leaks, CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KIIS/LOS ANGELES morning host RYAN SEACREST TODAY leaked an as yet unreleased RIHANNA track on his program. Titled “TAKE A BOW,” the NE-YO and STARGATE-produced song is one of three new tracks slated to appear on a repackaged version of her platinum CD, “GOOD GIRL, GONE BAD,” which isn’t scheduled for release until 5/27.
Meanwhile, KZZP/PHOENIX appears to have beaten SEACREST to the punch by a few minutes, with PD MARK MEDIANA telling ALL ACCESS they aired it at 6:10a.
Soon after airing on KIIS, it popped up on fellow CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40s KRQ/TUCSON, WKSC/CHICAGO and even scored an early commitment from WHTZ (Z100)/NEW YORK. Label reps are hurrying furiously to get the song into radio hands ASAP. In the meantime, you might want to hit up your ISLAND rep for a preview.
