Rihanna’s highly anticipated new song “Russian Roulette” just dropped moments ago. And you know what? It’s not bad.
I mean was I looking for an uptempo edgier record, with a slight CB undertone – sure. But clearly Rihanna and her team are rising above the gossip fray with the perfect pop tune.
Written by Tricky Stewart [or Dream, or hell Ne-Yo - I get confused >> [Read Here To See Why], RiRi goes left when all of us were expecting for her to go right.
This record is clearly for Rihanna’s core audience – women and gay men – so I can already see the “WTF” bubble clouds hovering above all us hip-hop bloggers.
Hey, I can’t hate. Clearly she’s coming back hard. Have a listen.
Update: Here’s the instrumental via Rapradar.
