New Song: Rihanna – ‘Wait Your Turn’ (2nd Single)

Published: Saturday 31st Oct 2009 by Sam
Rihanna 1

The 2nd single to be lifted from Rihanna’s ‘Rated R’ LP, ‘Wait Your Turn’ surfaced LITERALLY moments ago. Surprisingly, the Chase & Status produced cut isn’t nearly as bad as the initial clip indicated. Dare I say, I’m actually feeling this (yes, you read right!).

While, in no way (at all) does this warrant the unnecessary hype surrounding her project (no way, no how), the swagger Ms. Fenty channels on this one, really compliments the gritty, hard-knocking production. Perhaps most notable is her thick Bajan accent on the verses – which actually gives the track a layer of authenticity, as she  sounds comfortable and not as forced or strained as she usually does. Listening to this kinda makes me wonder why her team went with the dryness that is ‘Russian Roulette’. Can’t wait to see her perform this live… 🙂

Tidbit: Is it off and popping at That Grape Juice today or what. V2.0 baby!

Hit or Miss?

  2. SnijanaFleur October 31, 2009

    HOTNESS
    I love the flow of this one Sam. Rih needs to serve up the swagger though.

  3. mediacannibale October 31, 2009

    WHILE “RUSSIAN ROULETTE” sounds like a Masterpiece with its dark and quiet sound…
    this second single sounds like blah and banal.
    Vocals are horrible
    lyrics don’t impress me much

    seems like this is going to be a DULL return for rihanna who needs a HIT to make her comeback.

  4. Dani October 31, 2009

  5. pryncedru October 31, 2009

  7. hihihihihi October 31, 2009

    THIS IS HOT S*** RIGHT HERE RIIR IS BACK YEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH

    Sam why did you hating ass not comment on her hot vocals and the long note “wait is ovaaaaaaaaaaa” which sounded GREAT??? and how controlled she sounds
    Janet never could. hater

  8. Joe Black October 31, 2009

    I like it but it’s not gonna be a radio smash in the U.S. like Umbrella, and Disturbia was.

  9. Craver October 31, 2009

    This is pretty shocking. I had actually thought that she had lost the majority of her accent when I heard “Russian Roulette”, but it sounds like it’s a bit fiercer here than it’s ever been before. This isn’t a bad cut at all, she’s channeling some newfound swagger, I just still don’t really like her new “image”. It reminds me way too much of a darker version of the woman who was accused recently of copying Gaga with her single “Silly Boy”. I’m liking the new music from Rihanna though, it’s great that she can breeze through so many styles and pull them all off.

  10. the wait is ova October 31, 2009

    its not the mastered version. but its still dope. go rihanna!

  11. vizionwarp October 31, 2009

    WHAAAAAAAAAAT SAM U LIEK SOMETHING RIRI DID?? TODAY IS REALLY A GOOD DAY Lol… I F****** Loves IT

  12. RIChyung October 31, 2009

    The HYPE ova her music was OFF THE CHARTS. NOW THIS IS WHAT SHE DELIVERS?! She should have taken her own advice and WAITED!

    BTW if some of u didnt notice she is from the caribbean so she’s has an accent. not surprised to hear it in the music!

  13. my2centz October 31, 2009

    did her voice change

  14. sean2009 October 31, 2009

  15. sean2009 October 31, 2009

  20. oral anthony October 31, 2009

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

  21. dillpickle October 31, 2009

    Am I the only person that thinks this song is BORING? The beat is o.k., at first ,but after a while, it just seems like the song is dragging along…. I don’t know it’s just so uninspiring.

  22. Travis October 31, 2009

    Ok Rihan, this was better than Russian Roulette. Maybe she will give me what I am needing from her with the 3rd single cause ya’ll know her team is going to be pumping out a single left and right and up and down just like they did Good Girl Gone Bad.. I like the beat a lot though.

  23. ThatGrapefruitJuice October 31, 2009

    SEAN2009, THANK YOU!!!

    Now listen, I’m no Rihanna hater by any means, but DO NOT f*** with Janet! The Queen Of Pop’s name shouldn’t even be in the same SENTENCE as Rihanna, unless they’re working on a project or something together, period. HIHIHIHIHI must have eaten a bad piece of halloween candy because he/she’s trippin’ with that “Janet never could” b*******…

    As far as the song is concerned, it’s alright. I think it’ll have to grow on me a bit more (which, like any Rihanna single, probably will.) I do like the fact she’s really using her accent on the track. It’s refreshing to hear.

  24. Travis October 31, 2009

    And yes Sam, THATGRAPEJUICE 2.0 has been pumping news out the ass.[Excuse my language-lol].

    KEEP IT UP GUYS!

  25. K.W. October 31, 2009

  28. Cazatuz October 31, 2009

    I thought This Song was Just O>K, At least shes being Different Musically doing songs that are Bold & Haunting With an Under-ground Darkness to it.

    I Thought the Deep Jamaican Style Versus & The Chorus was Nice but that Hook where shes singing, its Ucky, That just ruins the song for me- Tip to Rhi: Stick to Uptempo Pop Records & stop trying to be too Risque.

    I actually Like the Russian Roulette Better, Its Haunting & Epic. I Can actually relate to both senses of the song; I get scared to take risque & My Heart does sumtimes Beat Pain & i also can Relate to wanting to Pull the Trigger. But the real Concept of the song when you really listen to it, its about taking Risque even though you know that the outcome could result in you getting hurt; Ultimately Dealth. If you still dont like Russian Roulette after listening to it a couple times via the radio or internet, Try listening through your ear w/ an Audio Device(MP3) with the Base turned up- After doing this I Feel in love w/ this song

    *So many wont get the chance to say good Bye, but Its too late to think of the value of my life. & You can see My heart, Beating, you can C it through my Chess, but I know that I must pass this Test!!*

  29. Allie October 31, 2009

    Damn this songs effin sucks…this what you had your fans waiting for… some old left over Ciara sounding mess. No you dont have enough talent to pull off the cockiness of the lyrics either…try again and come back with something hot please. Ugh I’m pissed

  30. Ginger October 31, 2009

    This is not single material. Period.

  31. Jai October 31, 2009

    It’s better than ‘Russian Roulette’, but it’s not single-worthy.

  32. gina October 31, 2009

    WTF! This sounds like S***!!! That tells me that they altered her voice on RR- this song has no reall hook, it sounds blagh and i’ know island music and this song has nothing on real dance hall queens——> epic fail!

    These songs don’t justify the hype! Sam, what’s wrong with you, this song sucks royally!!!

  33. gina October 31, 2009

    I tried to play it again but my ears couldn’t take it, this song will turn alot of people off and not get much play- hopefully for her the video will make it but as it is, the song is not good at all.

  34. Cazatuz October 31, 2009

    RU serious Sam??, Your Review is So Over Rated, The 1 time you Lick Rhi’s C*** was an Epic Fail- This song is so Dry…

  35. trucie October 31, 2009

    I’m absolutely luvin this track. The lyrics and the flow is nice. Luv that she threw her accent in there a bit. I can’t wait til her album drops. Riri is the business, vocal ability or not. She’s giving me what the music industry ain’t giving me right now and that’s something different!

  36. dont take shyt October 31, 2009

    I like it
    I hope that it preforms well on the charts
    Russian Roulette debut 100
    wonder what # is it going to be next week

  37. James November 1, 2009

  38. James November 1, 2009

  39. tricia November 1, 2009

    there is no female in the game right now with rhianna’s swagga, the west indian culture that rhianna’s from has prepared her for this no disrepect but americans need to travel more. i was born in trinidad lived in europe and now america this song made me a grown women scant and my 12 yr old american daughter loves it .

  40. Drew Foxx November 1, 2009

  46. gina November 1, 2009

    I know carribbean music and Sasha would SlaT her or even Patra- this sucks- This barely sounds like it could be an album filler, it’s that bad and definitely not single material- after the hype dies down, this song won’t cut it- it’s mostly her stans liking it. Even Toya, her major stan gave it a 3/5- what’s that telling you!! ughh!

    Sam- i don’t know what to think man- your review is soooo overhype and it’s clear tiffany evans just twitted that becasue rhianna’s people was all over her ass re her comments.

    By the way, i’m no Janet fan but she has more talent in her pinkie finger than Rhianna has in her whole body and i’m not a rhianna hater…..just keeping it real!

  47. Matty November 1, 2009

    Sam since you made this site look better i thought ‘pfttt, they wont change at all’ but youand trent have been pumping news out everyday keep it up guys 🙂 and btw im no rihanna stan 🙂 lmao but this tune is dope, can’t wait for the mastered version. Nearly 50 comments, she’s either loved or hated but at least she is getting people talking about her

  48. aok November 1, 2009

    Notice how the ONE TIME Sam praises this b**** its some wack s*** that everybody else doesn’t like!!??? I think Sam is secretly on to somethin here…..lololol XD

  49. duttiefree November 1, 2009

    that picture is so gross; what is she thinkin wit this new style??? MAY THE OLD BEAUTIFUL NORMAL LOOKING RIRI PLEASE STAND UP!!!!!!She looks like a freak and halloween is ova honey

  50. Janet Jackson Forever November 1, 2009

    Not bad 🙂

  51. Tori November 1, 2009

    The song is OK, an album filler at best. I have GGGB and these singles of late aren’t living up to the hype nor the previous record. Not saying that most artist don’t have a fall off on next albums after huge sucesses, but for the sake of being dark and “SO’ different, lol, I feel like Rihanna has alienated part of her audience. She will always have die hard fans but you have to keep some since of consistency with song type to keep your base while attracting others. Stars with multiple platinum albums do this. With GGGB it seemed like she found her niche, catchy songs, hot styling without alot of dancing, she made you dance. But these songs drag and sound lazy. I’ll wait for another single, she hasn’t done anyting for me to buy this album yet .

  52. lool November 1, 2009

    “that picture is so gross; what is she thinkin wit this new style??? MAY THE OLD BEAUTIFUL NORMAL LOOKING RIRI PLEASE STAND UP!!!!!!She looks like a freak and halloween is ova honey”
    stfu you wanker, what do you mean by ‘normal’? being like everybody else, being a clone? with people like you this never will evolve, respect the differences and choices of other people, enjoy the art and the diversity, cuz that is what is lacking in music industry, specially black music. let the artists follow other pathes and do something different, enough of glamorous fake black ladies with long fake hair singing about the same damn thing and dancing naked in the videos

  53. Nik November 1, 2009

    This song was BORING…….I MEAN, MY GOSH! THIS SONG DID NOTHING FOR ME. WOW IS ALL I CAN SAY. (AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY) SHE NEED TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

  54. wtf November 2, 2009

    sam, i am gonna believe that you are being sarcastic here..i know rihanna fans attack you but this is not the way to go out..lol!! this song is not good or bad..its just there but far from the hype she gets..smh..i have not heard a single hit from her thus far!!

  55. whystillinbusiness November 2, 2009

    Miss and y’all know it! Just cause you are a die hard fan dont mean you cant except the truth about this girl with no talent from Barbados, will this new CD live up to the miracle of GGGB? No! every single that has come from it thus far has been bad previews of nothing good coming for the major show and if she is singing without autotune or whatever she needs to go back and fast! This hype was way over built and her limitless singing ability can only achieve nothing. The accent she is bringing back shows this is an attempt to sale a song that was produced by a good producer but given to a singer with no singing abiity al all and she is getting ready to go back home with her tail between her legs begging for forgiveness from turning her back on her loved ones who would’ve stood by her no matter what. What goes up! must come down! There has not been one #1 hit so far from this mess and you all know it!

  56. Scttie December 8, 2009

    I love Riihanna!!! She is hot and she can sing. You go girl!!!
