A week after teasing fans with a snippet of their “Sorry” collaboration, Hollywood couple Naya Rivera and Big Sean have unleashed the track’s full version.
The “Glee” star and G.O.O.D Music protégé premiered the catchy track through Los Angeles’ Power 106 radio station.
Naya Rivera isn’t kidding! The Glee star – who plays Santana Lopez in the hit Fox series – is pursuing a music career for real. Although the 26-year-old girl from Valencia, California – who is part of the Columbia Records roster (she signed her deal some time ago) – is still working in the studio on that debut album of hers, Naya is already treating us with the first official single of said project. Listen now above to “Sorry”, featuring Naya’s boyfriend, rapper Big Sean, which was world premiered on L.A’s Power 106 on August 9. Not bad! The beat is infectious, and “Sorry” is giving me both early 2000s R&B song and, Cassie tease. Intelligent move to ask Big Sean to guest on “Sorry”, by the way! It gives the song major exposure from the very beginning. Naya’s first single sounds like something both pop and urban radios will be willing to play. I’m excited! I’ll keep an eye on this girl.

Their song’s 30-second teaser started making its rounds last week.
In between promoting his upcoming album Hall of Fame, Big Sean lends a hand to his girlfriend Naya Rivera. The “Glee” star launches her music career with her first single “Sorry.” The funky record features a digitized hook, while the full version boasts a verse from the Detroit player himself. “It’s been a long time coming and I’m so happy to share my music with you all,” tweeted Naya.

The 26-year-old actress reportedly inked a record deal two years ago.
Glee star Naya Rivera is reportedly on the verge of launching a solo music career. According to EW, Rivera has now signed a deal with Columbia Records to record a solo album. She will allegedly begin work on her debut LP once the current Glee tour finishes later this summer. The actress first appeared in a minor role on the first season of Glee, but was upgraded to a series regular for the recently-concluded second season. Her character Santana Lopez has gone on to receive an increased amount of airtime this season, featuring in more solo songs and discovering that she is a lesbian. Rivera is now the third Glee star to embark on a music career alongside the show, following album launches by both Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling. (Digital Spy)
Last month, Rivera revealed where she had her first date with Sean.
“We met a while ago and we went to this little Italian restaurant for our first date,” she revealed. “[How long have we been official?] I don’t know, you should ask him. [laughs] He’s really supportive of the character that I play [on ‘Glee’]. Everyday when we go out, he sees fans come up [to me] and I tell him stories about people thanking me for playing this character; this helps them come out to their friends and family. He thinks it’s so cool.” (VIBE Vixen)
