Rihanna was snapped shooting the video for her new single 'You Da One' rocking a new hairpiece. The singer is likely hoping the video and single can help boost her disappointing album sales. Her new record 'Talk That Talk' sold fewer copies than expected debuting this week at #3 with just 197,040.
Beyonce has treated her loyal fans with the premiere of her latest concert series 'Live At Roseland' on vevo. The DVD showcases the singer performing music from her new album '4' in stores now as well as hits from her previous solo and group efforts.
Rihanna hit the X-Factor 'USA' stage tonight and performed her latest single 'We Found Love' from her new album 'Talk That Talk' in stores Nov 21st. Delivering her first live showing from this new era Rihanna did not disappoint.
Its only been six years since Rihanna hit the scene, and the Pop-Princess has managed to secure herself a spot amongst industry greats as a main contender.
With eleven #1singles Rihanna has become one of musics premiere acts and shows no signs of slowing down as she is set to release her sixth studio album 'Talk That Talk'.
Successfully revamping her image, and sound creating a new persona for each record. Rihanna has proved naysayers , and critics alike wrong and has every reason to feel like she is the only girl in the world!! The new journey starts here and the Rihanna navy is up for the ride.
'We Found Love' - The first single from the album landed Rihanna her eleventh #1 . The song which mainly consisted of instrument was more of a Euro- House sound than any of her previous pop hits. The record showcased Rihanna in a different light , no hardcore middle just a soft dance like record with rave-happy breakdowns.
'You Da One' - The second single is RiRi as we know her. The mid-tempo song produced by Dr. Luke cleverly rides the balance of R&B & Pop. The chorus on this song is so infectious and the choppy vocals give it that special something. This song will be one of those records that will stand the test of time.
'Talk That Talk' ft Jay -Z - Rihanna and her mentor rekindle their chemistry on this Stargate produced track. Jay delivers an rhyme so impressive that riri almost seems like a feature on her own song when her verse finally arrives. However doing what she does well as a talented hook artist she manages to save face and give Talk That Talk a deserving piece of her island girl swag..
'Cockiness' ( Love It) - This is one bad ass sexually influenced song. “I love it, I love it , I love it when you eat it"she sings. However the most captivating part of this song is when the pop-princess does an unorthodox flow combined with her Caribbean accent taking the song from hit to mega-smash!! Most def my fav from the record....
'We All Need Love' - Rihanna opens up on this record about sometimes feeling a bit lonely and her longing for that special someone. "I can pretend that I'm not lonely, but I'll be constantly fooling myself"she sings. She may not be the best singer but she knows how put emotion into a record that makes you feel as if your listening to perfection.
So So Moments
'Drunk On Love' - Though the song is great it rides a little too close along the lines of 'We Found Love' which can be seen as good or bad. I believe that this song has potential to rock the UK fanbase if Rihanna decided to push it on that front. It would have been interesting to see her package the two songs together as a video package they seem to tell a similar story.
'Birthday Cake' - I love this record it only made the So So Moments list because of how short it is. How dare she only give us just over a minute of this hotness..
Other Standout Tracks ( Roc Me Out, Watch N' Learn, Farewell)
This may very well be Rihanna's best album ever. Not only has she grown vocally, she and her team have managed to piece together an album that combines all the elements of Rihanna as an artist. I can't complain on her putting out an album every year when she is consistently out doing herself and supplying music that is true to who she is.
Check out the video for Katy Perry's new single 'The One That Got Away'. Katy may not be the best singer but she has a way with captivating her audience with catchy pop tunes, and impressive visuals. This one just happens to be my favorite record from her album.
Willow Smith premiered the first live performance last night for her new single 'Fireball' on The X-factor USA. The 11yr old singer delivered a solid performance however I've seen her do better with her debut 'Whip My Hair'. Willow is still young and has quite the time to grow so I'm excited to see what she does in the future when she has full control over her body.
As promised Rihanna has dropped her second single 'You Da One' lifted from her new album 'Talk That Talk' in stores Nov 21st. The song is so ready friendly and its clear that RiRi has yet another hit under her belt. Dr. Lukes infusion of the Pop sound that's out now with just a hint of R&B is unbelievably crazy.
Check out the video for Tiffany Evans new single 'Won't Find Me'. Putting her voice in a box for a while Miss Evans has delivered a video and single that shows the world she is more than just the little girl with the big voice we all came to love, she has grown into quite the grown woman. The song and video are great representation of what is to come.
Drakes highly anticipated new album 'Take Care' leaked online today and fans are jumping over the track of the same title featuring pop-singer Rihanna. The song is a great representation of how well these two work together and in my opinion this has the potential to be another potential hit.
With just weeks before her new studio album 'Talk That Talk' hits shelves Rihanna has released a few promo photos to get the ball rolling. Just earlier we broke the news that Rihanna has landed her 11th #1 single when 'We Found Love' top the Billboard Hot 100. One more shot below!!
Finally the video for Pop singer JoJo's new single 'Disaster' has premiered.
The song is lifted from her third studio album 'Jumping Trains' that will be released early in 2012. JoJo is one of the best female vocalist out right now hopefully this visual can give the song the much need boost it deserves.
