It’s actually dangerous
May 29th, 2007
If you haven’t already, please turn your attention to the Rihanna First Spin that’s breaking dishes and taking names on our homepage. I’ve given it more than a few listens now and this album is so pop-fierce that it’s bound to be this year’s “Loose” (Nelly Furtado’s album, which still has legs a year later). Eff. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Rihanna is on her way to being a Beyonce-caliber STAR. And PS, this new haircut totally suits her, yo.
So there’s a greedy fistful of potential singles on “Good Girl Gone Bad”, but so far the stand out for me (and this could change) is “Breakin’ Dishes”. This tune is fierce and I guarantee that it’ll be released as a single. Rihanna kinda sounds like Nicole Scherzinger on the track and actually, if it were the Pussycat Dolls releasing this song as a lead single on a new album, there would be no question that they’d stick around (stickwitu?) for another round. But Rihanna snagged it, and 2007-2008 will be the year of … her. Just don’t pull an Usher and overdo it, knowmsayn?
OH, and one more thing – apparently Beyonce has signed up to do a track with Rihanna, AND Jay-Z’s gonna jump in on it too. This is like, whoa, because if you remember, it was rumoured that Hova had himself a bit of a fling with Rihanna. Awwwkward…
ETA: After a kajillion spins, “Lemme Get That” is my new fave!Tweet
