The 26-year-old half-Puerto Rican singer/actress and Glee star released her own track, Sorry, on Los Angeles radio station Power 106 FM on Friday.
Rivera, best known for portraying Santana Lopez on Fox’s hit musical dramedy, got a little help from her boyfriend, G.O.O.D. Music label rapper Big Sean on recording the single and debuting it on air.
“Heard that #nayapower trended?! You guys are the best. This was a good day for all of us and I can’t thank you enough for your support,” Rivera tweeted on Friday.
The single, which Rivera says has “been a long time coming,” was finally dropped after Rivera shared a snippet of it last week on Twitter.
After her big break on Glee, Rivera signed a solo album record deal with Columbia Records back in May 2011.
Prior to releasing “Sorry” with Big Sean, Rivera recorded a feature on Croatian cello duo 2Cellos‘ sophomore album second single, a cover of Muse‘s “Supermassive Black Hole” and also appeared in the song’s music video.
