Rihanna & Ne-Yo – ‘Hate That I Love You’

Rihanna has dropped a new mixtape in the lead-up to the release of her new album ‘Good Girl, Gone Bad’ (I still can’t take that name seriously). This track is featured on the mixtape and will most likely make the album’s final cut. The Bajan singer spoke about working with Ne-Yo not too long ago and this seems to be the finished product.
The track, ‘Hate That I Love You’ is guitar-driven and the harmonies are very similar to most of Ne-Yo’s tracks. Same with the instrumentation; I could have sworn I heard Ne-Yo’s ‘Sexy Love’ in this track. It’s a decent song and I can see it doing well in both the Pop and R&B markets. I’m still yet to hear a Rihanna track that will be relevant in the next 5 years though.

What you think?

    It this song is on Neyo’s CD it should be called “Irreplaceable S*** Love” but on Rihanna’s it should be called “Try as I May (Still Can’t Be Bey)”. LOL

    anonymous, you took the words out of my mouth. The guitars are like “Irreplaceable” and the drums are like “S*** love”. Still, it’s a great song.

    It’d work better on Ne-Yo’s album than Rihanna’s though. B**** release albums too quick, she needs to take a year off and take some singing lessons and grow a fringe for that Xbox 360 forehead.

    “I’m still yet to hear a Rihanna track that will be relevant in the next 5 years though.”

    We’re on year four since Umbrella dropped, have your feelings changed yet?
