Rihanna’s brainchild


Rihanna blog

I’m not the biggest Rihanna fan. There’s a side to her that I don’t like, but then there are aspects of her and her artistry that I do like. It’s always a surprise to find out how I respond to a new release of hers, but this time, I absolutely LOVE what she’s done on “Love On The Brain”.

I had already picked up the response to this track when it was just an album track. I saw that many were people covering it and that is love seeping through right there. You know something is hot when a lot of people are singing it on YouTube.

Now, the song is finally seen a release as a single and, to be honest, I don’t know what took her so long?! I have never heard Rihanna like this! What Rihanna can do with her voice is amazing (on recordings anyway. I have  not been so impressed with her live performances).

It’s like she has a different voice every other year or so. It’s clear it’s something she’s working on, because this sounds so far away from the nasal sound she used to have.
