The boyband will release 'Walks Like Rihanna' on June 23 as the third cut to be lifted from their forthcoming studio album, with a preview available to listen to here.
"We are really excited about this single. We feel it's a little different from the usual Wanted sound, we've stripped it back to pure pop, it's just a feel-good, fun track," Tom Parker said.
"Fun is a good word to describe the video too. Let's just say it's got a lot of character."
Lyrics include: "She can't sing/ She can't dance/ But who cares?/ She walks like Rihanna."
The track was co-written and produced by Dr Luke, who has previously worked with Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson.
The accompanying music video was shot in Los Angeles and will premiere on May 7.
'Walks Like Rihanna' includes vocals from Nathan Sykes, who recently underwent surgery to correct a haemorrhaging vocal cord.
