NEW MUSIC: Rihanna – Jump [Ft. Theophilus London] (Club Cheval Remix)

Rihanna-by-Terry-Richardson-05

‘Jump’ is definitely, if not the most, my most favorite cut off her Unapologetic album, and now it is finally gaining some attention getting remixed by Club Cheval. I don’t know much about Cheval, but I might have to look into more of their remixes because I have to say this is straight fire. The original was banging, but I think, I just might like this one just a bit more. If it’s possible, the song achieved a level of sexiness that I didn’t think was possible, and the added feature of one of my long time favorites Theophilus London fits so perfectly over the slowed down Ginuwine cover.

On a side note, that picture above is from Rihanna’s recent Terry Richardson photo shoot which I highly suggest you take a look at because it does Rihanna all the justice in the world!

Enjoy!

NEW VIDEO: Rihanna – Diamonds

It doesn’t matter how many albums she releases, I’m always interested in what she is going to do next. This is the first video off her 7th studio album Unapologetic. While its no ‘Rude Boy’ or ‘We Found Love’, she looks fantastic as usual, but the video doesn’t give me anything. That being said, I still really like this song for some reason, and I kind of have high hopes for this album. I said when she released this single, that this could be a very strong album, and only time will tell.

‘Diamonds’ is currently number 4 in the charts, that’s without any promotion. I see another number 1 in her future.

 

NEW MUSIC: Rihanna – Diamonds

It’s that time of year for the single queen, Rihanna to release her next studio album. Her first single ‘Diamonds’ got it’s release today. As much as I want to hate this single, I just can’t. She changes up her sound again and it sounds awesome. The song is written by the amazing Sia, and you can faintly hear her background vocals on the track. I was under the impression it was going to be a big dance track, and I’m so glad it’s not. Rihanna always has a way of standing out from the crowd, and this just might do it. She definitely proved me wrong. Also I LOVE the single cover.

2012 VMA Performances

This years VMA’s consisted of a lot of OneDirection and Rihanna, but as far as performances go, Frank Ocean slayed all. Although He didn’t win anything, he definitely took the crown home for best performance of the night, while Rihanna was busy giving shade to everyone on stage. Pink has had way better performances in her time, but she can still do no wrong. To take the words from someone on my Twitter feed, Rihanna sounded like a goat swinging on a rope, but looked fantastic. OneDirection featured screaming girls on their track. Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz tried to be energetic and make rap seem cool and it failed. Alicia Keys performed her failure of a song while also having pretty horrible vocals, which is usually not like her, then brought out the failure Minaj to finish it off.

Take a look after the break!

NEW VIDEO: Coldplay – Princess of China [Ft. Rihanna]

Definitely a standout track on the the album, and one of my favorites finally gets visual treatment, and well it’s just alright. Both Coldplay and Rihanna have the star power to make this video amazing, but well its just alright, I like it, but it doesn’t make me want to put the track on replay like some videos do. Still a great song though.

NEW VIDEO: Rihanna – Where Have You Been

This track is definitely my favorite off of her album, I can’t say the video is anything amazing like ‘We Found Love’ was, but she looks drop dead gorgeous as usual. She also brings some dance moves which is rare these days for her. There is really no plot towards this video, but the song doesn’t have much depth anyway. It’s just a mindless dance track, and the video shows that. I look forward to seeing what she does with this live.
