We must have been really naughty this year because Santa has given us something worse than a lump of coal – a Rihanna Christmas song. The Bajan has recorded a song entitled ‘A Child Is Born’ that will be featured on ‘Now That’s What I Call Christmas! Vol. 4’.
The 36-track record will hit stores on October 12th and will also have contributions from Kelly Rowland and Mariah Carey. Give the snippet a listen below:
While it is good to hear her returning to her Reggae roots on this track, the idea of Rihanna singing a Christmas song is beyond laughable. She has spent the last couple years perpetuating a dark ‘rock star’ image and now she wants to do a song like this?
Yes Rihanna’s voice probably sounds exactly like one of the goats in the Bethlehem manger but this has to be one of the most laughable attempts of any act attempting to jump on the holiday music bandwagon. Hopefully she doesn’t make a video for this record because last thing we need to see is Rihanna in leather panties and a mesh bra, rubbing her crotch while she squats in the middle of the nativity scene.
