So it looks as if Rihanna has finally wised up and is releasing the only remaining track on her current album that has the potential to be a hit for the pop diva! If not a radio hit, the David Guetta helmed “Right Now” is destined to become a club hit thanks to this just released remix package. Take a listen to the reworks and tell me which one is your favorite!

Rihanna’s new single “Stay” is a very beautiful and mature ballad for pop music’s reigning bad-girl… Definitely now something I would expect to hear banging over the speakers of the club! But believe it or not, the song has been remixed by Bass King & X-Vertigo into a surprisingly impressive EDM bootleg! So impressive, Tiesto debuted their production in his pod-cast last week! Take a listen…
DJ DigiMark has just released another EPIC mashup that is hands-down one of my more favorite mashes that he’s put together! This one brings Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and Britney Spears’ Femme Fatal album track “Drop Dead Beautiful” together into a perfect union! Mark uses the Peter Rauhofer remix of “Diamonds” as a backdrop for the mash and got very creative with the play on words in his production. You would almost swear that Brit and Ri-Ri where actually in the studio together singing back and forth from one another at the 1:45 mark of the song! Take a listen…
As most of you may already know, Rihanna’s current #1 hit “Diamonds” was written by the amazingly talented Sia. As much as I love Rihanna’s version of the song, I have been hoping and praying for a Sia demo version to surface because the song sounds like it was crafted for Sia’s own voice. While the studio demo has yet to surface (as far as I’m aware of) we did recently get the next best thing – Sia performing a flawless live rendition of the track! So what are you waiting for? Take a listen to Sia’s take on “Diamonds“…
After patiently waiting for Rihanna’s music video for her latest single “Diamonds” I’m sorry to report to you that while the video was released today… I kept fell asleep halfway through clip because it’s so ridiculously boring that I can’t give you a proper review. Just watch it for yourself and write a review of your own in the comments section if you disagree or if you’re suffering from a nasty case of insomnia, just watch right before bedtime - It should do the trick!
Rihanna is preparing to release her next studio album Unapologetic on Nov. 19th and has released a pretty lengthly album teaser to give you a glimpse into the new offering. As always, Ri-Ri is trying to perform a balancing act to pass herself off as a dance diva and a hip-hop artist at the same time by making the album grab-bag of both genres. This one leans a little more heavily towards the hip-hop side however, which I’ve never been a fan of from Rihanna. (And by judging from her past single choices/chart performances, neither is the rest of the world.) With cameo’s by Chris Brown, David Guetta & Eminem, I’m sure this album will appeal to some but after listening to the previews, I think this would have been a good time for Rihanna to finally take that long over due break from releasing back to back albums. (Not even feeling the Guetta track!) Sorry but this one is boring as hell!

Simple & sweet or uninspired & boring? I don’t know how I feel about it… Oh wait a minute, it’s not that I don’t know how I feel about it… It’s more than I’m indifferent since we are suffering a serious case of Rihanna overload at the moment. I love me some Ri-Ri but I don’t think I’m ready for this new era of vocals sang through her nasal passages, forced accents & #hashtagged #songtitles. :-/
Rihanna’s new single “Diamonds” is finally here and despite the tacky, drug centric artwork – the song itself is actually a beautiful and pretty mature record for Rihanna… Probably because Sia had a hand in writting this ‘gem’. I think the dance diva actually has a chance to break the 4-on-the-floor mold and score a huge hit with this mid-tempo ballad! Check it out and tell me if you’re feeling the ‘all grown up’ Rihanna…
Last week Rihanna announced her new Diamonds world-tour which left many of us to wonder why she chose the random title… This week the mystery is one step closer to being solved. Apparently Ri-Ri has a new single titled “Diamonds” rumored to be set for a Sept. 17th release date (in just three days) and a new album to follow in November. At first I wasn’t going to post about this rumor until I had some solid proof, but after Rihanna tweeted this pic (above) which seems to feature lyrics lifted from the rumored song… I think it’s safe to assume that there is some truth to the rumblings!
As much as I love Rihanna, I was really hoping she would take a longer break between albums this time around but I guess we’re just going to have to get use to the idea that she has a whole new batch of material that will be played to death on radio coming our way just around the corner. Brace yourselves…
Princess of pop Rihanna surprised a packed audience in France when she took to the stage with Coldplay on their current tour to perform 2 songs with the band! Obviously one of the numbers she performed was her duet with Coldplay, “Princess of China” but she also treated fans to an acoustic version of her smash hit “Umbrella” with Chris Martin accompanying her on piano! Of the two performances RiRi sounded a bit shaky on “Princess…” but not surprisingly, she really soared on her own single “Umberalla“. Check out both of the special performances below….
FINALLY!! Today saw the release of the highly anticipated video for Coldplay’s collaboration with Rihanna “Princess of China“! The martial arts film inspired music video is visually stunning and was well worth the wait! Check it out…
Rihanna took to the American Idol stage tonight for the series’ big finale and performed her current hit “Where Have You Been“! I must say that while Rihanna isn’t exactly the best pop vocalist out there and most of the contestants in the show can sing circles around her, she made up for it with her showmanship and did a great job tonight with the over all performance! Check out Rihanna owning the stage on Idol in a way that only she can…
Well, we all knew it was bound to happen… Rihanna and Chris Brown are done playing nice with one another and are feuding once again! This time around, the former lovebirds have taken their feud to the hard, cold pages of Twitter! What sparked Rihanna VS Chris Brown 2012 was a hip hop freestyle track that Brown posted on his page for his fans earlier today. In this bootleg track, Chris demonstrates his AMAZING freestyling ability over a Kanye West track titled “Theraflu“. Apparently Rihanna didn’t enjoy Brown’s musical gift and took offense to a particular line in teh song which said; ”Don’t fuck with my old bitch, it’s like a bad fur/An industry n—a done had her”. Ri-Ri unfollowed Chris on Twitter over the supposed reference and posted “Aw, poor dat #neaux1currrrr,” on her own Twitter page. Not too sure what that means really, but I’m sure it’s Bajan for “FUCK OFF CHRIS!“. This, of course, promoted Chris to retaliate by unfollowing her as well then posting this on his page; “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about,” which I’m pretty sure means “YEAH, I MEANT YOU BITCH!” in douche-bag!
So I think I am officially over these two attention whores and all of their childish, in-your-face (no pun intended, Rihanna) drama!!! I think its time for both of these artists to invest in some therapy and work out their issue behind closed doors instead of all over the Internet! And I suggest no more “collaborations” for a while unless they are collaborating in a joint-therapy session together!
Rihanna brought the African inspired choreographed routine for her latest single “Where Have You Been” to the SNL stage lastnight and performed it quite impressively… The choreography that is, the vocals where ‘decent’ for Rihanna which means that you’ll probably enjoy watching this more with the volume turned down.
