The princess of edgy-chic is currently in the studio working on new music reportedly with Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Justin Timberlake but a single isn’t expected until Fall. Epic sadness! What’s summer without Rihanna!?
Thankfully for us, some new-ish music from Rihanna leaked online earlier this year that will keep us going until the new album drops. One of those songs is the painfully catchy “Whipping My Hair.”
Looky here, I already know the song is not a classic by any means. In fact, when I first heard it, I thought it was complete garbage — the lyrics (courtesy of The-Dream) make absolutely no sense (”I just might have what you need/Sprinkling you with pieces of me/Now lets make it a sight to see”), the sythntastic club beat is far more Britney-ish than Rihanna, and the overall quality of the song is about 3,000 steps back for the new pop queen (probably why it was never supposed to see the light of day), but there is something about Rihanna’s delivery of the flimsy lines and the unique charm of her voice that makes the song not only bearable, but worthy of repeated plays on my “Music for the Summer” mix on the ol’ mp3 player.
That’s power, people. Bow down to “Whipping My Hair.” Take a listen if you haven’t already: Whipping My Hair
[DEATH!!!] Thanks TJ!!!
