It appears Rihanna’s label are pulling out all the stops for the release of her ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ re-issue – she’s everywhere right now. This morning the singer performed on the Today Show’s Concert Series in New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza. Her set featured current single ‘Take A Bow’ (above), ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ and ‘Umbrella’ (below).
As I’m sure most of you know by now her live performances do little for me, these included. Though I’m sure the inevitable ‘hater’ tag will be levelled, it’s hard to ignore the fact (IMO) that she sounded as if she were singing through her nose for the whole set. Not a good look. Still,her label she must be convincing people she’s worth their hard earned cash, as ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ is on course to shift between 45,000 – 50,000 units first week; which is definitely an achievement for an album that is over a year old and wasn’t very good to begin with.
What do you think of the performance?
