The Word On…Rihanna

video platform video management video solutions video player

As one of music’s biggest forces, naturally Rihanna finds herself the topic of intense debate. Is she actually talented? Can she even sing? Why is she so successful? These are questions which find themselves a staple on message boards, phone convo’s, BBM, and even right here on your favourite site and mine!

Ever keen to hear what the masses are thinking, That Grape Juice hit the streets of Louisville (on the eve of the release of the singer’s new single ‘We Found Love’) to find out just what the streets are saying about the Bajan sensation.

Hit ‘PLAY’ to get ‘The Word’ on Rihanna…

    I am not even great fans of either artist mentioned in this post but to me and many others will agree. it’s so obvious that if your review each others career, talent and abilities. Beyonce is not even supposed to be compared to rihanna, this is way off. don’t get me wrong i like some of rihanna’s music from the studio but people have to be more real!! Beyonce is highly honored and respected from the music industry.

    She showcases it on all her album, she just doesn’t have a super strong voice. Ciara is a harmonic singer, if you really listen she can really lay down some good harmonies & melodies. Apparently you’re not really listening to her albums. I dont’ agree that Ciara is a better singer than Beyonce, but I think the girl was a bit delusional & meant Ciara is better than Rihanna, & a bit as far as singing.

    Wow, this woman in blue actually think Bey can’t sing. Hmmmm, that’s quite interesting. I don’t know what to say about her ear, but to each their own. I like Cici, but I guess I’m not hearing the power in her vocals that this lady does.

    I love the other woman’s reasons for liking Rihanna though 1)”She has real pretty hair”, 2) “She’s like, laid back – She’s cool”, 3)”and She ain’t stuck up, like the rest of these singers out here”, 4) “and she can express her own style – and I just love her”… This is a woman that clearly loves talent. Enough said!

    I guess to each is own. I didn’t expect the one girl to say Beyonce wasn’t a good singer and Ciara was. Ciara IS a great singer though. I actually think she makes the best music out of Beyonce and Rihanna, you just have to look into it and clearly she has a pretty tone and voice.

    when that girl said ciara sings better than beyonce and rihanna her comment became void. i am a riri stan and i know beyonce can perform better and her vocal range is better than many artist out there. but those two girls talking about how rihanna’s videos and music is dark obviously stoped paying attention to rihanna after rated r because they missed the whole loud era.

    Ri Ri has little to no talent! She can hold a tune I guess but she has no stage presence and did someone actually say she can move? FTW 0__o

    I agree with the ones who said she’s changed for the worse! She use to be cute and bubbly and bright. Now she’s just “assy” and trashy!!

    There is no comparison of the three. What beyonce does with her voice they cannot even attempt. I guess some people need some dvd’s and performances. someone said rihanna is a great entertainer. DEAD.
    a RIHANNA stan knows better. A Ciara stan knows better. They all know that they cannot do half of what Beyonce can do on a stage and off. Just a pure natural. Why even compare, that’s disrespectful…..really people.
    tgj please delete that video.
    btw where is ciara, I didn’t even remember her.

    Thank god the music industry knows better, and beyonce has surpassed all that

    Beyonce, Ciara, and Rihanna are all in their OWN lanes. Comparing them are irrelevant. Even I don’t like Rihanna that much but giving credit where it’s due I think she’s here to evolve and change. NEWFLASH to some Bey stans. GET OVER IT. Not everyone is going to like Bey. Beyonce has accomplished in her career so getting your feelings riled up because people think otherwise of her singing is not going to hurt Bey because she knows people are not going to get into her music. Some of you fans take things too personally. Opinions are assholes. As a Ci and Bey stan I know that those two have made an impact in the music industry. Rihanna has herself but that doesn’t neccessarily in my eyes convince me that she’s talented. I think her next record my surprise us. Never been a fan but I think she’s trying to cut down the genric bubble fast food she’s been putting out in a while and do some deep artistry on the next album. Oh yeah for the ppl bitching over the fact that some people think Ciara can sing. That chick had her opinion and you get all RILED UP. LMAO. Like what is it that you think someone who is not a powerhouse can’t sing? She’s no powerhouse vocalist bit she shas evolved and shown depth in her voice. She sings better than some of half these chicks who over-belt and scream and holla every verse.

    I like some of Rihanna’s songs, like CKB and Cheers, but I hardly ever watch her performances because they are not very entertaining

    How can someone say Beyonce isn’t a good singer? Her vocal range is insane. I think some people think Bey only does songs like Crazy In Love and Single Ladies. The songs that truly bring out her vocals are songs like Speechless, Dangerously In Love, I Was Here, I Care, I Miss You, Smash Into You, That’s Why You’re Beautiful. I could list so many.

There have been better people interviewed in past editions… Like those girls that said Rihanna is too dark, like I’m not a big ol fan but I;m gonna defend her and say she was dark that ONE album, Rated R, and switches up her style frequently. This past album was actually really bright and cherry…..
