Rihanna’s NEW ALBUM ‘ANTI’

rihanna-work-preview

1. “Consideration” (ft. SZA)

A confident drum kit starts off Rihanna’s return: “I got to do things my own way darlin’ / Will you ever let me / Will you ever respect me?” Dang. Tell us how you really feel, Rih! SZA joins in with a mesmerizing hook, proving that Rihanna has bars and good taste. This song is a solid banger, starting the album out strong a sending a clear message: this one is all mine.

2. “James Joint”

On a dreamier note, “James Joint” comes in to remind us of Rihanna’s one true love, self-explanatory title and all. It’s a nice interlude and an in-your-face reminder that Rih doesn’t care what you think.

3. “Kiss it Better”

Here, Rihanna brings in a guitar riff on a romantic pop anthem. “Kiss It Better” does what Rihanna does best: demand loving just the way she wants it. “Here to take me back / who cares when it feels like…” she sings, lamenting the “are we together or not” drama so many of us experience on the regular. This song could easily blast out of a boombox, raised over a heartthrob’s head in the climactic scene of a teen drama. Alternatively, it will blast out of our laptops for the next month.

4. “Work” (ft. Drake)

In the most dancehall-inspired track on the album, Drake joins Rihanna to put in “Work.” It’s upbeat, forcing you to dance whether you’re in your seat or on your feet, but features some pretty trying lyrics. Who hasn’t needed to put in work to make their relationship last?

5. “Desperado”

This one is rhythmic, dark, and dramatic. We’re here for Rihanna’s bad gal cowboy phase.

6. “Woo”

The falsetto “woo” chorus on this song is its namesake, but the beat and Rihanna’s haunting lyrics set it off: “I bet she could never make you cry / cause the scars on your heart are still mine.” Buckle up, kids. We’ve got a breakup anthem.

7. “Needed Me”

Building off the previous track, this one follows strong, insisting “you needed me” over a strong bass as she insists, “didn’t I tell you I was a savage?” It’s got Weeknd vibes with a signature Rihanna attitude.

8. “Yeah, I Said It”

There can’t be a Rihanna album without a come-hither song, but this one is a slow jam, which is unusual for her. As is the trend with this album, she owns it. Here, she drives home sultry vocals over a similarly sexy piano-driven beat.

9. “Same Ol’ Mistakes”

On this six-minute Tame Impala cover, Ri shows off her pipes. It’s not only a good cover, but also a standout song on the album. With her voice controlling the track, it’s both trippy and introspective. Remember, y’all: she’s not just pop.

10. “Never Ending”

The Dido influence is strong here, with this sad folk song allowing Rihanna to explore an angle we’ve never seen her take. “And I can’t feel my body now. . .It’s pulling me apart this time / it’s never-ending,” she sings, lamenting what it’s like to feel love again without being able to feel it at all. It’s heavy, but the tune is light and listenable.

11. “Love on the Brain”

This track is all #TBT, giving you as much heart-wrenching falsetto and doo-wop as you can handle. “Must be love on the brain / that’s got me feeling this way,” she sings, echoing the heartbroken lyrics of “Stay” with all the catchy rhythm of a ’50s radio track, backup singers and all.

12. “Higher”

At Rihanna’s most Amy Winehouse moment, she sings about whiskey and ashtrays, letting you hear the wear-and-tear on her voice for a brief two minutes. This one is a must-listen, as it feels like an Adele deep cut with Rih’s trademark bad girl edge. It’s both sad and hopeful, triumphant and defeated. Strings add to the drama, giving you the emotion that’s usually only reserved for Rihanna’s social media. Most of all, it’s honest, it’s refreshing, and it’s a win on an album that feels all her own.

13. “Close To You”

The album’s closing track is the closest comparison to “Stay,” but it’s also wholly original for Rihanna. It’s soft, sweet, and stripped, lilting out with her words, “if you let me, I’ll be there by now / close to you.” No hard beat, nothing overpowering. Just Rihanna singing what she wants

NEW VIDEO: Eminem ft. Rihanna – The Monster

The visual in the beginning of Monster displays Eminem sitting in a chair as Rihanna (as Psychologist) turns on a television, he watches all the crazy events that took place in his life. The visuals then continue with him in a mental institution with Dr. Dre evaluating him, him falling from a building like past videos and 8 miles reenactments. The video sums up all of Eminem high points and low points. I really like the video and of course Rihanna looks flawless as always. OnPointVideo! MuaH!

NEW VIDEO: Rihanna – What Now

image

Yesterday Rihanna released the music video for her new single “What Now” that she has been promoting all week. The video is similar to her Russian Roulette video.
The video displays Rihanna is a long thin gown. She is in a empty room fighting with her intense feelings failure. I know everyone can relate to this video. When you just have no idea where to turn next or where you even want to go.
Just know that this is apart of life and with everyone negative comes a greater positive.

Drake Talks About The Media in NEW Interview EVR Radio

drake-elliott-wilson

Drake makes it clear in his interview today, with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson at East Village Radio, that he is not a big fan of the media. He also talks about some of the stories in the media about him.

Catch the highlights below:

On why he doesn’t do a lot of media:
Media, it’s just all entrapment. I’m not in the entrapment game. I came up here today because we actually have rapport, we’re friends, and you’ve always shown me respect but everything else is entrapment. People just go up to radio, start talking too much and make mistakes.

On Chris Brown
For any media outlet that listens to this interview, don’t ask me sh-t about that man when I come up there. Leave that man alone and stop preying on his insecurities man. His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, that I’m more popping than him, and that at one point in life ,the woman that he loves fell into my lap and I did what a real n-gga would do and treated her with respect. So she’s not out there talking down on me. All of those things combined creates a n-gga that comes up to your radio station and is just gonna do dumb sh-t. But it shouldn’t be about tearing that man down, it shouldn’t be about wanting to see me and him tear each other down. We have an issue and it’s either gonna drag out, or maybe in ten years we’ll laugh about it over drinks, but let us solve that sh-t. It’s not me and Kendrick [Lamar], it’s not me and Hov, you’re not gonna get anything out of it. I don’t wanna hear that man rap, you know what I’m saying? Nobody wants to hear me rap against him, you’re not even going to get anything out of it. I just urge media to leave that sh-t alone.

What do people wanna see from it? You don’t wanna see two black men tearing each other down. I understand when it’s entertaining, when you feel that you might get some music out of it, but at the end of the day, nothing good can come of that situation, just leave that sh-t alone. That’s part of the reason why I don’t go up to radio. Sit up there and talk, talk, talk, I don’t wanna talk. People talk themselves into a mess. Playing my beat when he comes up there and try to get him to rap, c’mon man! That sh-t is like terrible.

I feel for him too. Every interview he does, they talk about me. It is what it is. I’m focused on this album and everything else that’s going on. I’m not thinking about that man…or that girl.

On being involved in beef and gossip
If it’s anything to do with me, if I ain’t say it [out of my mouth], chances are [I didn’t say it].  Their job is to create stories. It’s not like I’m in some anti-media space. I just hate when it fuels people’s days. Get out of the house. F-ck all that bullsh-t.  At the end of the day, we are just two guys and a girl. We are regular people too. You shouldn’t care that much.

On taking responsibility for his rhymes
Just realizing that when I get in that booth, not only is the microphone on, but the microphone is on. The world is listening. I think the situation the other day with the Rocko song is a wake up call for all of us. Rap is important. The world is listening. It’s a wake up call. If you are going to say something that is going to put you at risk, make sure it’s a message worth fighting for. Not to scrutinize Rick Ross, I know him very well, that’s my guy, by all means I don’t mean to speak on another man’s situation, but just for me, it clicked, like “Wow!” And watching [Tu]pac, he felt like that message was worth fighting for. In this day and age, he would have lost corporate sponsorships and he would have lost money, but he thought that message was worth fighting for.

On why he doesn’t do a lot of endorsement deals
We love saying “No.” That’s why we are still here and we are still exciting. Preserving the brand and not just jumping out there doing every single thing that’s offered to me for a million dollars. To me a million dollars isn’t worth the mystique that I still possess when I drop a record. I don’t want to be in your face all of the time doing bubble gum ads and ads for trash bags. I’m not just going to take the first million dollar check that you give me. I’ll make a million dollars somewhere else to preserve the integrity that I still have.

On if he and The Weeknd parted ways
I mean, not necessarily. OVO was OVO and will always be OVO. All we did was embrace someone that we felt was extremely talented from our city and instead of hating on it and rejecting it, we completely embraced it and that was a big part of why it is where it is now. I mean, people make their own decisions. He went on to do something that he felt was a great decision and more power to him. I talk to him all of the time and I look forward to what he has coming in the future. I wouldn’t call it a parting of ways, I just think people reach a point when they need to make decisions and whatever decisions they make, that’s on him. OVO was always three letters and it will always stay like that.

Listen To Full Interview Here!

I understand where Drake is coming from. Its horrible that the media always tries to stir up lies about these artist. They are people and do have feeling too. Like Drake said if there’s drama between two artist let them figure it out on their own.

Drake seems like he’s in a good place mentally. I’m proud of him and wish him all blessings! OnPointCeleb! MuaH! 🙂
