2 new tracks from Rihanna’s forthcoming album have magically appeared online today and TA-DA!!! I have an exclusive listen for you guys! Check out the mid-tempo pop cut ”Dancing In The Dark” and the gorgeous Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins produced ballad “As Real As You & Me“. I’m instantly feeling these two hot tickets a lot more than her current single “FourFiveSeconds“.

Rihanna – As Real As You & Me:
So according to Rihanna’s Vevo page which just debuted the video for the song “FourFiveSeconds“… This song IS in fact the first single from her forthcoming album. Ummmm… It’s a little left-field for sure. I DO like the song… First single “like”?! Hell no! RIH-diculous choice! The video is pretty simple like the song … But for some reason I do have the sudden urge to go out and buy a Guess denim jacket after watching it!
Shakira and Rihanna have just dropped their faux-lesbianistic (I think I just made up a new word) clip for their new duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You“. I already enjoyed the song but I have to admit that the racy video makes me love a just a little bit more! Check it out…
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….
