    Elle est super cette fille! une superbe parolière! domage que toute ses meilleures musiques vont à ‘autres artistes! j’espère qu’un jour elle auras la reconaissances qu’elle mérite! en attendants j’écoute ses démos! Au fait j’aimerais bien entendre celle de firework!

    You go Ester and i am waiting to see what you will
    be cooking up for the next big Hit that will appear
    in the hot 100 like what happened with some of
    Rihanna’s biggest Hits that you wrote. And being
    on Jay’s label the Roc its nothing like a great Party.
    One day these Narrowed Minded folk will realize
    that behind every great Writer, Producer there’s
    always a Bad Ass “HBIC” TO DELIVER them lyrics…

    Eater dean>>>>>rihanna’s career Eater dean is rihannas persona and style and everything in between Eater dean made rihanna

    • STONY October 18, 2012

      of course she made riri totally agree with you on this point

      • Rihanna black madonna October 18, 2012

        Go and read Esther Dean / the New Yorker.

    • Rihanna black madonna October 18, 2012

      No. She did not make Rihanna. Esher Dean gave an interview with the new yorker, where she spoke of wanting to be a solo singer. The New yorker also interviewed Stargate ( rih’s producers ) and this what they said of esther dean wanting to be a star. ” Many songwriters cam sing, some are really great, but that does not make you a star. I have to be able to want to watch you’ etc. I agree with Stargate, there is not an ounce of star quality in Esther dean. So, no, she did not F****** make Rihanna.

      • STONY October 18, 2012

        IDIOT SHE MADE THIS GIRL BECAUSE WITHOUT THE HIT SONGS RIHANNA WOULD BE NOTHING AND BY THE WAY RIHANNA DOESNT HAVE STAR QUALITY SHE DOESNT HAVE THE X FACTOR EVEN WHEN SHE PERFORMS LIVE ITS GARBAGE SHE DOESNT HAVE THE CLASS AND IAM NOT HATING CAUSE I LITEN TO THE MUSIC SHE MAKES WITH SONGWRITERS.
        GIVE THOSE HIT SONGS TO A REAL SINGER WHO SING DANCE ENTERTAIN AND LET SEE THE RESULT SO NOPE SHE HAS ONE THING A BEAUTIFUL COMPUTERIZED STUDIO VOICE ITS PERFECT AND FOR THE REST NOTHING SHES SO BORING ON STAGE AND IN VIDEOS SO PLIZ THERES NO DEBATE ON THAT

    Wow she sounds like how rihanna would sound if she had any vocal ability.

    • Rihanna black madonna October 18, 2012

      And she also sounds like Rihanna, if Rihanna did not have the xfactor. If Rihanna was not born with star quality – this all she would be. Of course she is better looking, but she would not be the black madonna.

  5. Huh? October 18, 2012

    Yeah yall seriously boosting her up out of yall hate for rihanna, cause she sound computerized, auto-tuned, and dry . . . Sounds like a nice song but please with the vocal ability comments, i can’t

  6. JJFan1814 October 18, 2012

    Ester Dean is a great songwriter.

    As far as the haters concern, don’t forget she wrote Countdown for Bey…

    But I’m assuming you all would Believe Beyonce wrote that since her name is on the credits, right?

    Kiiii

  7. ddttrs87 October 18, 2012

    No hate to Ester, but there are some songs you just shouldn’t mess with and this is one of them. Everyone eo has covered it like Tank, Bon Iver, Adele, Kelis etc. has stayed true the emotion of the Bonnie Raitt classic, but this has destroyed it. Really disappointed.

  8. IDK October 18, 2012

    ok ester dean! make sure you make a hood joint real soon for the club bangers! Drop it Drop it looooooow!!!

  9. Todd October 18, 2012

    THAT PHOTO ! i almost died.literally

  10. Sarah Says October 18, 2012

    This is dreadful! I don’t care how good Ester is singing her own songs, when singing someone elses it has to match your tone and this doesn’t and the dance beat just adds to the horror.
    Check out George Michaels for a better cover

  11. Auntie_Jackie October 18, 2012

    Interesting spin on the song. Not my cup of tea. She gave her sound to Rihanna, and I don’t see her becoming a star because A.) She doesn’t have s** appeal B.) her sound is already out there, and the girl associated with it has already moved on from it.

    • Benron (King Of The F****** Navy) October 18, 2012

      Her voice is terrible, Rihanna’s voice fits the songs better.

  12. HOL UP October 18, 2012

  13. Kayla October 18, 2012

    She’s written too much for Rihanna so that’s catchy who she sounds like. But the song is good.

  14. mona October 18, 2012

    Plzz give Tank back his song.
