New Song: Rihanna – ‘What’s My Name (Remix) (Ft. Drake)’

Published: Friday 15th Oct 2010 by Trent

The remix of Rihanna’s 2nd single from her upcoming ‘Loud’ album (in stores on November 16th) has surfaced. The song, which already has a video waiting to be released, features Drake. Check it out below:

The production on this track is quite impressive and, shockingly, Rihanna’s vocals are actually bearable. Although the studio mechanics used to correct her pitch are blatantly obvious, she sounded more comfortable trying to sing this song that the screehfest that was ‘Only Parrot (In The Cage)’ ‘Only Girl (In The World)’. On the other hand, Drake sounded the same as always.

Kudos to Rihanna’s team of producers and studio technicians for making her sound average. They literally made water come from stone on this record. Miracles do exist.

    Ok, I was done at 1:02…after Drake this is just some average as hell POP garbage. LA Reid needs to be fired …why not bring out some real Island flavor…some damn jams….riddims! Bye Rhianna and all the boring people that buy your crap music.

  2. MrIncredible October 15, 2010

    It’s ok… again, nothing epic.

  3. MAY October 15, 2010

  4. carl October 15, 2010

    What the hell is this? Not my kind of song sorry.

  5. MrIncredible October 15, 2010

    You can tell this was a sad attempt at reproducing ‘Rude Boy’ but no, it didn’t quite work out.

  6. notimpressed October 15, 2010

    simple sh*t.

  7. lmsar October 15, 2010


  8. A.M. October 15, 2010

    LMAO!!! @ “Only Parrot (in the cage)” …. I love Trent’s shade!!

  9. Blasian October 15, 2010

    Well I give it this it’s not Generic but still BORING! lol

  10. Heaven October 15, 2010

    Over exposed ass Drake (honey bear I even like some of your s***- but say no sometimes). No comment on the rest.

  11. Deemy October 15, 2010

    F****** EPIC!!!!

  12. MB October 15, 2010

    The vocals are cool, but the song is kinda boring… it reminds me of Rudeboy.

    Good album track, but bad single choice.

  13. queenbeyonce10 October 15, 2010

    I officially cannot stand her voice. she has naggy voice. It’s so annoying.

    Her voice reminds me of colds (like when you’re sick).

  14. TheTruth October 15, 2010

    I like it, love the way rihanna flow with the beat and the way she use her island twang when needed

  15. someone who doesnt care October 15, 2010


  16. mike October 15, 2010

    lord from only goat (in the field) to only parrot (int eh cage)


  17. movieman October 15, 2010

    how many singles is she releasing i cant with billy the goat

  18. royalkev October 15, 2010

    It’s aiight! I see we were all given a sneak peak at the best part of the song. It was a little misleading, but the song gets a pass.

  19. wwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooowwwwwwwww October 15, 2010

    ohh naaa naaa that song is lame, lol!!! i dislike it now but in a couple of weeks maybe it might grow on me jus like rude boy, but god knows after about two months of listening to some of her songs i get so damn tired of it/her…

  20. Christian October 15, 2010

    WTF!!!! A MISS!!!!!!

  21. elleuk October 15, 2010

    im glad she is back to her the island pop sound, pop rihrhi is much better than
    “hard” rihrih. its not rocking my world, but then again what mainstream songs are.
    after seeing the guests on her album i think that this album will definity push her career and status further. i just hope she brings it with the fashion and music videos the way she did on rated r, although the music was trash, rated r from its album cover to music videos to styling was amazing.

  22. NICK October 15, 2010

    its cute….nuthin huge, BUT cute, I like it….def buying LOUD! I hope she finally gets that # 1 album . . .

  23. Aryo October 15, 2010

    @A.M me too

  24. RosaRubbel October 15, 2010

    It’s nice, but the only part which is stuck in my head is the ‘Oh Na Na’.

  25. Trent Is The R***** October 15, 2010


  26. spunkypoop October 15, 2010

    LOVE IT!!! Nice POP feel radio song…. Thats 2 winners for RIRI….Love this girl. Drake sounded good for a change but Im sick of him on tracks rapping. (i guess) But other than that Rihanna is about to rule the radio airplay this Winter. STAY MADD YOU HATING SKATING BROADS! lolol.

  27. Lexington October 15, 2010

    This album of hers would be great for the summer, not now. Cool vibe nevertheless…

  28. Boogie October 15, 2010

    it was boring.

    Te amo >>>>>>>>> this

  29. tracy October 15, 2010

    i love this song….drake killed me with the lyrical……oh na na na…damn it kool

  30. ERIC October 15, 2010

    4 minutes and 16 seconds of my life i won’t get back….

  31. E11 October 15, 2010

  32. JJFan1814 October 15, 2010




  33. BlkBubbaWitBlueeyes October 15, 2010

    Why are y’all hating for???
    This is a HIT!
    You guys always say negative shissh about BIG songs, and them same songs go on to be BIG HITS. You wouldnt know a good song if it hit you…This is a good. Its a contempory sound and I can tell Rihanna is going somewhere different with this…Props to her.

    P.S it sounds NOTHING like Rudeboy

  34. The Truth October 15, 2010

    I actually like it….#Yikes!

  35. dapope9 October 15, 2010

    I LIKE THIS!!!!

  36. SWEXY October 15, 2010

    LOves it

  37. Tc23 October 15, 2010

    btw this post clearly means thatgrapejuice loves it and knows they would hav to swallow their words if they admitted it AHAHAHA


  38. HATIN IS FOR SUCKAS October 15, 2010

    That was the worst 2:05 second of my life I didn’t listen to the whole song. I thought Drake was gone make the song good but that didn’t work. What a waste of studio work. #Shame

    I guess I have to get ready to be called a hater

  39. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 15, 2010

    Decent song, actually. Granted, I can’t stand Drake’s rapping (he always sounds like he’s imitating Lil Wayne to me), but he’s alright on this. And the beat is quite good.

    Also, if Riyodel could sound this good in real life, perhaps she wouldn’t constantly be the b*** of billy-goat jokes.

  40. Hot damn October 15, 2010

    Hatin is for suckas would you have admitted if you liked it? you hate rihanna, so of course you won’t say you like it. Well this song has a nice lil tropical vibe to it. I could have done without drake she should have used kardinal official or something to bring that real island vibe to it. but still a cool track.

  41. I & I (yardie style) October 15, 2010

    It was rather boring after the 1st chorus, not bad after the 3rd listen though but nothing spectacular. I still can’t believe that this album with songs like this and the 1st single was being compared to thriller. SMDH!

  42. honeygirluk October 15, 2010

    Love it.

  43. Lioness October 15, 2010

    this song sucked though…vocals…still bad. sorry…cant get down with the madness.

    and someone…tell Rihanna to stop screaming at me! dang

  44. Lioness October 15, 2010


    slaying Deuces…..chile bye

  45. Kenny October 15, 2010

    All the non Rihanna fans came running just to listen to the song….. thats awesome.

  46. annie! :] October 15, 2010

    *shrugs* eh… it’s kinda lame. i was expecting more.

  47. Soulful Roses October 15, 2010

    I dont like it, but I will admit Rihannas voice is bearable on this track. But I can only take a small dose of her songs, because her voice has this piercing sound that isn’t good for the ears at all. But I also feel that the singles aren’t as strong because she recorded this album so close to the Rated R era, resulting in no growth in her music. DefScam should’ve waited longer…

  48. UMMM………….. October 15, 2010

    OH HELL NO! WTH was that? Only Troll (underground) sounds better than this hot mess! So is Drake being on the track suppose to make it hot? He’s rap is worse then the song itself! I thought she was doing something new on this CD?…..”Boy you make me want it you stay all up on it”? Sounds like the same crap from Rude Boy “IS” not are, but is you big enough!

    I will say one thing for her, she didn’t lie when she said the songs on this CD are nothing that Ke$ha, Katy Perry or Lady GaGa would bother…oops I mean dare sing…LOL!


  49. Beysus October 15, 2010

    yall can hate all yall want im a beystan and i knw a hot song when i hear it kudo’s to rihanna this way better than that average ass s*** Only Girl (which i like but its to basic like ciara)

  50. MUSIC LOVER October 15, 2010

    This song is so much BETTER than “Only Girl.” It does sound like “Rude Boy” Pt. 2. This might be Riri’s 8th #1.

  51. MICHKA October 15, 2010

    She’s Baijan, therefore it makes sense she’s more at ease on this kind of hook.

    But definitely a “Rude Boy” number 2. Good but we are used to this Rih-Rih, nothing new.

  52. Beysus October 15, 2010

    how come haters always make it to a rihanna post before the stans smh some of yall a little to obsessed with this girl and TGJ is obviously checking for rihanna lol damn im not that big of a rihanna fan but i believe in giving credit where it is due she just released a catchy ass pop song that will be all over the radio ok and so what damn do yall gotta always hate on a b****

  53. ~Team Weezy~ October 15, 2010

    I love it! It’s UBER catchy. I REALLY love Drake’s ‘singing’ part.

    It does sound like Rude Boy. The snare drums and the guy’s autotuned background vocals are just like Rude Boy’s. I’m guessing it’s the same producer. It’s nothing wrong with that because I loved Rude Boy and this is a mellow version of it.

    She does sound listenable, but she usuallly does most of the time in the studio IMO. It’s just live she…….Um, yeah.


    What’s my Name>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Only Girl

  54. UMMM………….. October 15, 2010

    @Souldful Roses,

    *DEAD at “DEFScam”….LOL 🙂

  55. badd October 15, 2010

    This is generic, boring, & ANNOYING.
    Like i’m not even hating on Rihanna…this song is BADD.
    It’s worse than Only Girl.
    At least Only Girl was catchy & upbeat ( though extremely generic)
    this is ANNOYING…oh na na what’s my name.
    & DUMB…& Drake just really messes it up.
    He is just not that great of a rapper to me….i see why his hype has died down.

  56. AuntieJackie October 15, 2010

    This is a great song! She’s using her unique tone & cute accent to sell the song, not screeching and screaming.

    You can hear the correction in her vocals, but she’s not yelling, at least. This is the s*** she needs to put out. PERIOD.

  57. badd October 15, 2010

    LMAOOOOOOOOOO @ Soulful Roses !!!!!!!!!!!!



  58. MABS October 15, 2010


  59. AuntieJackie October 15, 2010

    By the way, I think it’s clear she’s aiming for urban radio with this one.

  60. MALE_MADONNA October 15, 2010

    Whatever happened 2 RiRi???? I sued 2 love this woman!!!! #FAIL

  61. SJAMZ27 October 15, 2010

    cute ..but it gets boring after the 1st verse.

    and drake …he always sounds the same, i wouldn’t be surpised if he was
    repeating the same verse over and over on different songs

  62. CRAMPED October 15, 2010

    It’s a good boring song, 6.5/10

  63. black October 15, 2010

    its okay……i’ll probaly humming t next week….damn u

  64. MUSIC LOVER October 15, 2010

    Where are all the Rihanna stans? Shouldn’t this post have 10000000 posts by now?

  65. Blue Kid October 15, 2010

    @ AuntieJackie

    I don’t see this making that big on urban radio, but the will play the hell out of it on the Toronto pop station.

    The song is generic, we will see how far up the ladder it will go.

  66. KiKi October 15, 2010

    Rihanna just gets better and better.

  67. AuntieJackie October 15, 2010

    @ Blue Kid


    The reason I think I may be big is because of the reason’s you are talking about. All it takes is 1. Generic 2. Catchy

    Plus I believe they are trying to capitalize on the whole Rihanna/Drake situation, knowing about their brief involvement might make people buy into the song.

    We’ll see Blue Kid. This s*** is def not as whack as Only Girl.

    This is off topic, but directed at you Blue Kid & Team Breezy… Deuces has been #1 on urban for how many weeks?

  68. badd October 15, 2010

    @auntie jackie
    they really are playing of the RIhanna & Drake situation
    & it really wasn’t that bad…
    & no one caresss !!
    that’s why Drake is alwasy talkign about it
    because he knows he loost all of his hype & no ones cares about him
    So he’s bringing up the Rihanna situation to help them both
    & bringing up Nicki Minaj because she has alot of hype right now.

  69. I & I (yardie style) October 15, 2010

    For those of you who don’t know, Lady Gaga is NOT a featured artist on this album. They deliberately leaked a fake album cover to try and fool people into buying her album come next month. It didn’t work, that was shut down by Gaga’s biggest blog supporter, then they have the audacity to blame fans for the photoshop. These people don’t care about the fans, they are lying ON YOU to try and sell albums. I would be LMAO right now, but this is serious.

    I won’t even go there with the rumours that there are more pics of a bruised rihanna when she was in the hospital to be exposed soon. Her people are desperate I tell you. I give up, I guess the sweet bajan gal is no more. SMDH

  70. slick October 15, 2010

    ‘Only Parrot (In The Cage)’ ‘Only Girl (In The World)’. LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CANT STOP LAUGHING!!!!! Your a foo TRent!

  71. KiKi October 15, 2010



  72. I & I (yardie style) October 15, 2010

    @Kiki, this is no lie, check a mainstream blog namely p.hilton or JJ.

  73. DION-ISH October 15, 2010


    You got some nerve calling anything generic SMH (and thats all i say regarding that)


    I Love the song, plays really good through my headphones ….Im sure the video and live performances will increase my liking of it even more, just like the only girl video made me like the record A LOT More. Can’t wait for the album:)

  74. DION-ISH October 15, 2010




    Rihanna dont need Gaga for anything. Dont get flattered.

    Obviously photo shopped by a stan.

  75. CRAMPED October 15, 2010

    @I & I (YARDIE STYLE) – I read about the new pics of rihanna is that is about to get released and instantly I thought her people were behind this story whether or no any picture actually surface on the net.. That’s how desperate she is for publicity, using an all story everyone has already gotten over.

  76. I & I (yardie style) October 15, 2010

    LMAO, don’t be angry with me, be angry at the person(s) fooling you. You are the ones buying into the madness. I feel for you though.

  77. magdalena October 15, 2010

    ofc i loooove it, go riri!

  78. I & I (yardie style) October 15, 2010

    my last comment directed to her stans

  79. kdjquh October 15, 2010

    This song is REALLY F***** ANNOYING

    ALL of the songs ive heard from her so far are REALLY F***** ANNOYING


  80. kdjquh October 15, 2010

    She can make a song about TAKING A S*** and her stans will be the first to call it ‘Epic’


  81. DION-ISH October 15, 2010


    If you and any other dumb ass actually believe they would do that #GoPlayInTraffic

    Some people take blogs and rumors to serious …Its not all real darling SMH

  82. ChrisFresh October 15, 2010

    shakin & cryin.. it scares me how much Rihanna is like Britney. she can do no wrong wih a beat and team of writers

  83. Kenny October 15, 2010

    Just like other artist can make songs about taking a s*** and their fans would love it… Why do you care what Rihanna fans like or what we do? Yet, you still choose to comment on someone who interest you, if you were not interested in Rihanna then no comments would be posted, except from fans.

  84. Kenny October 15, 2010

    @Cramped, your name says it all!

  85. VA STAND UP!! October 15, 2010

    JJFan1814: Um…’slay Dueces’?? You wish! This song couldn’t touch ‘Deuces’!

    @Soulful Wishes: Lol @ DefScam!

    @Aunt Jackie: 7 weeks! I believe he is shooting the video for the remix now in Atlanta with TI!!

    I think the song is pretty boring actually. I was looking forward to this collab, I figured something with the two of them would be really hot, but this wasn’t impressive at all. It’s just so…blah. Drake’s verse didn’t really add anything to it. I don’t get the hype with him, he is so medicore to me. *shrugs*

    It’s something that I could listen to on the radio, but I can’t hear it being a hit. Like someone said before, maybe as an album filler, but not a good single choice. It’s too boring.

  86. Hot damn October 15, 2010

    @ i and i yardie style. Rihanna’s camp never said that was her official track listing. NOt because some random person chose to release it as if it was her official listing means she is trying to be fake with anyone. IF rihanna had worked with Gaga, won’t you think she would have mentioned it in her interview like she did Drake and Nikki. Why would ri need to use gaga to get anything. Beyonce used gaga, and her song still didn’t make it to the top, rihanna flew solo and wala rude boy blocked telephone from even making an impact, so only you and your other dense cohorts really think that rihanna needs any lame publicity like using gaga to sell a record. She has been sellling records for years without using anyone. ANd the one Album which was her biggest to date,. GGGB, she sold absolutely drama free, so what do you have to say about that? When will you guys learn that gaga is not a threat to rihanna. Even with gaga around, rihanna still sold platinum status on Rated R, still was #3 on opening week, still got a #1 hit. Still was nominated for awards, still got two top ten, so gaga isn’t stopping rihanna. She is still surviving even with gaga around. The truth is that gaga is not stopping any one not even Kesha or Kathy perry, so why be afraid of the permanent costume wearer.

  87. Dan Dadder October 15, 2010

    I see the masses love the song but I see Trent and Sam won’t let me vote…You all hate Rihanna so much that you rigged the voting process….What dishonesty….Shame on you f***

  88. DION-ISH October 15, 2010

    @VA STAND UP!!

    Typical coming from a CB stan being you just Defined CB’s whole discography *Shrugs*

  89. Hot damn October 15, 2010

    Who cares how many weeks chris spend at #1 on the r and b charts, where is he on billboard, when will he hit #1 on the billboard charts where it really counts. we all know rihanna is queen of the billboard charts. Talk to us when Breezy hits numero uno.

  90. Mr. Pointy October 15, 2010

    Kenny shut your ass up and quit defending forehead. Arent you on Beyonce World saying one thing & the Rihanna forums bashing her? Contradictory much? I swear on EVERYTHING Rihanna is gonna FLOP & hard with this builshit & ill make sure of it. And you stans better pray & hope to EVERY religion known to man them other pics of her worthless battered c** dumpster ass dont leak cause they will be spammed EVERYWHERE

  91. Mr. Pointy October 15, 2010

    @HOTDAMN When Did Rude Boy block Telephone dummy? They werent even out at the same time? You better cling on to them Payola singles when EVERYTHING else fails. All those singles and cant take a punch, cant sell an album & she cant get people to come on her tour. What a worthless untalented c** dumpster w****. Chris should have cracked her skull open and spared us her worthless miserable life.

  92. spring October 15, 2010

    hot mess!!!!!!!!!!
    why the f**k is she getting 71.2% of its a ‘Hit’????
    boring and lame ..
    this chick needs to be saved by Jesus ASAP!!!


  93. Yellow Gorilah October 15, 2010

    THIS IS THE REMIX VERSION (Learn to read) =| and she said that she was going to do a remix with drake =P

    I don’t like this version I’m sorry ,,,

    It is waaay too slow But I love that facts he has a remix version so that the song can get played on urban raido’s Rihanna camp are not playing this time round But I really love the feel of this song

    LOUD COMING OUT SOOON!! Rihanna is going to SLAAAYY This ERA I Just cant wait!

    I’m going to wait for the original Video version of the song

    LOOOOL At the haters why are YALL ALWAYS MAD! Hahah get over it Rihanna is her to stay and SLAY your FAV good day!

  94. NICKY October 15, 2010

  95. Soulful Roses October 15, 2010

    Damn, Chris stay on people minds. Out of all the songs, what would make @JJFan1814 bring up Deuces?…..Wait?!, he was probably blasting it on his I-Pod as he was typing that comment. Yeah! Thats it!

  96. Mr. Pointy October 15, 2010

    @Yellow Gorilah

    Rihanna could NEVER slay my fav dummy. He cant even sell albums. Wheres the logic?

  97. NICKY October 15, 2010



  98. keepingitreal October 16, 2010

    I freggin love the song. She got this one right Hit song…..just keeping it real

  99. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    I hate it when people say such-and-such is going to “slay your faves”. Unless you literally know who everyone’s faves are, how can you make such a dumb statement? Riyodel isn’t all that, so she is most definitely NOT slaying everyone. Perhaps Ke$ha, but I can’t think of anyone else that one could say she truly slays.

  100. Mr. Pointy October 16, 2010

    @True Blue Im assuming your a Madonna stan by the name & if you are you need to educate these b****** on how a real b**** is supposed to slay!!! Rihanna cant slay ANYONE at ANYTIME

  101. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    WOW at ppl going a** s*** on twitter because Chris Brown said he likes Whats My Name….

    Whats shocking?? Its a hot song LOL

  102. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    I See your Pressed. You can have a major seat…..Whats you purpose?? Why are you here??

  103. Mr. Pointy October 16, 2010


    And notice he didnt say SH!T about Rihannas ugly horrible sounding ass. He gave credit to Ester Dean & not that untalented hooker who recorded it.

  104. CRAMPED October 16, 2010

    lol @ r**** deluded stans. They’re equally desperate as her. I believe r**** and dej scam are behind all those false stories – stories used to build hype around the flop-album- of- the- future ‘Loud.’

  105. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    I love this. I like that’s it more…chill compared to Only Girl. Only Girl was crazy and loud. However, this is a little more mellow and pretty. It’s also, like @TeamWeezy said, a more mellow version of Rude Boy.

    I kind of think this sounds like a faster version of Hate That I Love You. I wonder what the normal version sounds like…and I wonder if she’ll release the single with Drake or solo…

  106. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ Mr. Pointy:

    I stan for no one, but yes, I am a Madonna fan. And yeah, these Riyodel stans are delusional as hell, but there’s no hope in bringing them out of their delusions. In their minds, they will always think that she is a bad b****, even when evidence proves the contrary.

  107. jojo October 16, 2010

    ummmmmmmm chris brown stans get back cause chris brown just said on his twitter this was a dope record …………so BE GONE YOUR MASTER HAS SPOKEN

  108. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Probably because the restraining order restrains him from even mentioning her name, or maybe he cant spell it? Hmmmm LMFAO

    but naw…I Believe he’s just being StuntQueen …Messy #YouMadd?

  109. CRAMPED October 16, 2010

    @ Kenny and Dion-ish – I believe R**** camp release that fake tracklisting and added
    gaga name on it for publicity. F**k you! and her other stans, I am not drinking the riherpes koolaid. The h** is desperate and will anything to stay on top.

  110. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    All Stans are delusional and think highly of there artist…And there no talking any of them out of it.

    Sooo most of you just waist your time. Nobodys asking you to like or listen to Rihanna, nor care…move along.

  111. DAMO October 16, 2010






  112. DION-ISH October 16, 2010



    Go sit in a corner #StuntQueen

    @Dion – ish aka goat lover – You STFU and go sit in a corner.

  114. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    True, but Riyodel stans, along with Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift stans, are some of the most delusional ones out there. That’s why people single them out, because they take their admiration and blind judgment of their idol to a whole ‘nother level.

  115. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    RT from Twitter: I mean Chris Brown stans what can you say about Rihanna stans, They actually bought her album and went to her shows. Why didn’t you for CB?

    He’s not a CB or Rih stan….He stans for Gaga.

  116. Blue Kid October 16, 2010

    Ester Dean is Chris Brown song writing partner, it must be some money in it for him too.

  117. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    That may be somewhat true….be who doesn’t have crazy stans?! IMO …Beyonce has the craziest. Rihanna stans typically mind there business unless nickpicked….Thats what ive mostly seen

  118. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

  119. lola October 16, 2010

    I don’t care for this song. That “Oh Na Na” part is annoying as hell but I guess that’s the point. Her producers are smart because they know how to play with her annoying but distinctive and heavy accent. They know that repetitive and memory is what makes a song a hit so therefore, that’s why Rihanna is always making those weird sounds in her songs. I can’t stand them because her voice is horrible, but they do stay in your head. I wouldn’t see this as being a hit because it’s too mellow and that makes it boring. Plus the beat isn’t all that. I don’t like the island/pop feel. It seems like she’s following Sean Kingston, Iyaz, and Akon this time around because even though she did island/hip-hop/R&B music on her first album, it didn’t catch on and so she stopped doing it, but now that Reega/ pop is bigger than ever, she wants to jump into it again. And I can’t believe Matt is cool with Rihanna being friends with Drake, who she f**ked last year. WTH?

  121. VA STAND UP!! October 16, 2010

    Looks like her stans finally decided to come in here and defend your girl. Took ya’ll long enough. Lol! I guess ya’ll were thinking of nice things to say because deep down you all know how mediocre this track really is. Not even Drake, who is supposedly the hottest rapper out right now, could save it!

    Ain’t nobody hating, just stating opinions. Just because we don’t lick her ass like ya’ll do and act like everything she does is epic doesn’t make us haters! As much hate as ya’ll spew on his post, ya’ll should be able to take some construction criticism. But as the true hypocrites ya’ll are, you get pissy when anybody says anything negative about her!

    I swear ya’ll stay on CB’s twitter page! Why does he interest ya’ll so much. Ya’ll know more about him than his fans/stans do.

    @Jojo: CB is NOT my master, I speak for myself, and I do not like the record at all. I think it is very mediocre track. I could give a damn what CB says about it!

    Chris was just being nice because his girl Ester wrote the record. He was giving her props!

    The song sucks!

  122. Lady October 16, 2010

    Umm how was anyone supposed to buy CB’s album when it was blackballed and it wasn’t to a degree available to the fans? Even so you can’t really determine if his fans buy his albums until his next one.

    Lastly he didn’t go on a worldwide tour this year. But as far as his Fan Appreciation short Tour which was only like 3000 seats in the US with 20 dates….all his fans went to that one. That sold out the 20 dates.

    His fans went to his shows in Brazil. And the last show was a medium sized venue. And his UK Tour is postponed to January and that sold well(not sure of the exact sales). Extra venues were added and Manchester sold out in 20 minutes.

    I’m not saying “oh CB sold out a big tour” because it wasn’t a big tour. But you said(or this person you qouted) said his fans don’t go to his shows when they do.

    Also I still don’t have to like the song(even though I kinda do) because Chris likes it. Plus he said “I see you dean” he was shouting out Ester dean for producing it so am I supposed to care? Oh alright then. No one ever said Chris hated Rihanna. That just goes to show people don’t dislike Rihanna because of him. People dislike her because she lacks talent and is taking up space for people like Melonie Fiona…etc that would do her job 10x better.

  123. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    Bey stans are for the most part, aggressive as hell. Sometimes they make me ashamed to be a fan. They’re the kind of stans that will make you hate the artist if you didn’t already like her beforehand. Same with Adam Lambert stans. I have to explain to them that they’re making their idol look bad by being so abrasive to anyone who isn’t a die-hard stan. Justin Bieber stans are the worst, they go as far as to make death threats. I understand that they’re hormonal pre-teens, but they’re just too crazy for me. I don’t recall N*Sync or Backstreet Boys stans (and I used to be one of them) threatening violence against non-fans and haters.

    Rihanna stans aren’t aggressive, but for the most part, delusional.

  124. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    *but they are for the most part, delusional.

  125. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    “Threatening violence against non-fans and haters”

    Nicky was what went through my head >_<
    I try my best to avoid being a psychotic and delusional stan…

  127. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Girl gone and talk to him…i didnt say it. Secondly, Melonie Fiona and Rihanna arent comparable, different styles and genre. Thats like comparing Erykah Badu to Britney Spears!!

    and Um lacks Talent?? Sure that why her tour got AMAZING reviews and critics prasie her voice?? yea.

  128. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Rihanna has Done Reggae Pop Records on EVERY last one of her albums?? What you saying??

  129. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    LOL, I have yet to see Nicky threaten anyone, but his “HAHAHAHAHAHA HATERS, YOU MAD?” is pretty damn annoying, and very much fits the stereotype of the delusional stan.

  130. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Nicky is so ANNOYING. I’m sure Rihanna would probably hate Nicki if she met him and read her comments xD

    What do you think of the song?
    I don’t know how to sing along to it. It’s like I’m listening to Asian music – I just mutter random stuff LOL

  131. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    It’s a dope song, I like it. I hope the video will be just as good.

    THIS Song is already being played on Radio like z100 ….Damn!


  133. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    I can be extremely stupid. I called you a hater >_>
    But I think you’re similar to me in one way – we don’t hate singers. We just judge THE MUSIC. I love the song too. I’m so HAPPY she’s back to island-stuff. I really always hoped she’d go back to it.

  134. Blasian October 16, 2010

    Hot damn

    Which Song sold More Rude Boy or Telephone ?

  135. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Oh My God. Please don’t start that. Gaga and Ri are 100000000000% different. Don’t start.

  136. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    I actually like Rihanna’s music (her voice and performances though, not so much), so if I say I like/don’t like a song of hers, I’m not “hating” or trying please the stans to avoid a shitstorm. I’m just stating my honest opinion.

    However, as you can tell by the earlier comments, some of the stans cannot tolerate someone saying the song isn’t good, and then it devolves into another war. And that is how the insults start flying.

    On another note, do you notice how much Drake sounds like Lil Wayne lately? I heard “Bedrock” on the radio the other day, and I honestly thought for a second that his verse was Lil Wayne’s!

  137. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Shes Desperate for attention and for the focus to shift to whomever she stans for….Pay the Stunt Queen no mind!

  139. Hot damn October 16, 2010

    @ blasian why don’t you tell me since your the expert on all things rihanna even though you claim not to like her. At the end of the day, Rude boy >>>>>>>> telephone. A hotter fiercer track. Telewho?

  140. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Oh My God I so agree with you! I’m so tired of stans, period (not just Rihanna’s – but particularly Rihanna’s on this website), get SO angry when people don’t like their favorite artist. I mean, if they can love them, why can’t others not? It doesn’t make sense at all.

    And I know! When I heard Drake’s mixtapes, he was pretty good. But the more and more I hear him, the more and more I hear Lil Wayne. His album had some songs that were like him and some that weren’t but all his other stuff – features (“Bedrock” especially!) and this – they sound like Wayne. If I wanted to hear Weezy, I would. I wish Drake would take his own advice and be himself for once. He has talent…

    I still can’t get over Jimmy from Degrassi being a successful rapper, lol. If someone told this was gonna happen five years ago, I would have laughed at them so hard.

    @ Dion-ish:

    Madonna, MJ, Prince, Freddie Mercury, Beyoncé, Kate Bush (even though she only went on tour once), Regina Spektor, Matthew Bellamy, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Robert Plant (although he was kind of hit-and-miss live), Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Janelle Monáe, Marvin Gaye, Marc Bolan, the list goes on and on and on….those are just the ones that came to my head at the moment.

  146. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    I KNOW! It’s still hard to believe today. I love Janelle! I wish she was bigger than she is…but maybe mainstream success would change her too much. Her music is unique.

    Nah, I’m in the same country as you, specifically in the Big Apple. And yeah, I wish Janelle was more popular, but I’m patient, maybe it’ll happen within the next few years. She’s gonna join Prince on his upcoming tour (she’s his new fave right now), so that means more exposure!

  151. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    This is such a chill song. I like it. Her voice is tolerable, but her flavor is still there.

  152. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Rihanna has one of the BEST teams in the game! She’s an artist who can release ANY TYPE of record & blow it up & she’s not in any BOX! #Dope


    Rihanna can release a jazz record and it will fit her image still! That’s amazing.


    By the way I saw her video & she’s constantly reinventing herself! She sounds like CHER in the song too!/YoungPlatinum

  153. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    The Big APPLE!!!!??? That’s my favorite city of all time LOL
    Anyways, good point. I hope she is too – but the fact that PRINCE is becoming her mentor, I definitely see her popularity increasing. With the support of Prince and Diddy, it’s only a matter of time.

    …Lady Gaga, Steve Perry, Elton John, David Bowie, Ronnie James Dio, Bruce Dickinson, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Ian Astbury, Morrissey (an asshole, but a talented one), Axl Rose (strictly as a peformer and songwriter, can’t stand his voice), Grace Slick, Annie Wilson, there’s still so many more…

  159. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    I’ve yet to see Diddy promote this woman like he should be. Even though Janelle has her own label, I feel as though he should be using more of his resources to get her more promo.

    I know! She’s with him distributing-wise and he could TOTALLY invest in her. I wish he would..

  162. VA STAND UP!! October 16, 2010

    @Dion- ish: Really? That’s all you got?? ‘Discography’…thats a big word for you! I’m surprised you spelled it right! *round of applause*

    At least he writes or co-writes his hits! It’s easy for Rih to get No, 1’s when she has hot producers and song writers writing all of her hits for her!

    @Hot Damn: I was responding to someone who ASKED how may weeks has ‘Deuces’ been No.1. So obviously someone did care…the person who asked!!

    No matter how much you Rih stans try to downplay “Deuces’ success it still is a No. 1 record! What ya’ll can’t seem to wrap your brains around is that Billboard has many charts.
    There is the Billboard 200 albums, Pop songs, Jazz songs, Rap Songs, Dance/ Electro songs, Country, R&b/Hip Hop and of course the Hot 100! Hot 100 is a collection of the hottest songs (according to some) in every genre, rap, r&b, pop, dance etc. that get the most downloads and airplay. ‘Deuces’ was released as a FREE mixapte song for months before it was a released to iTunes, yet it still reached No.1 on the R&b charts and is still top 20 on Hot 100!

    ‘Deuces’ is an r&b record, so of course it is gonna top the r&b charts! If you notice, the majority of the songs in the top 20, especially top 10, are upbeat pop/ dance tracks which is far from what ‘Deuces’ is. ‘Deuces’ is more of a smooth laid back r&b song that you can’t really dance too, it isn’t a ‘feel good’ record and it features two relatively unknown rappers,Tyga and K-Mac! Songs like that usually don’t do well on Billboard Hot 100, yet there it is sitting at No. 17 and has remained in the top 20 for 3 weeks now!

    Ya’ll swore CB wouldn’t get another No. 1 and then when he does, you try to say ‘Oh well, it’s just on the r&b charts, so it doesn’t count!’ GTFOH!!! Please give it up! ‘Dueces’ is a hit! Point, Blank, Period! When he release a more upbeat pop single that you can dance to, i.e. ‘Yeah 3x’, it will undoubtedly do better on Hot 100 because it is something that will appeal to a broader audience.

    Usher, Alicia Keys, Monica, Drake have all toped the r&b charts this year, do their No. 1s not count for them either?? Or does it only apply to CB??

    “What’s My Name” is clearly a urban single that is geared towards a more urban audience. Now if “What’s My Name’ goes No. 1 on the r&b charts, (highly doubt it) ya’ll would be the first ones saying she got another No.1.

    Didn’t Rihanna just get nominated for and AMA in an r&b category (although she is anything but an r&b artist) does her nominatoin not count as well since according to ya’ll r&b ain’t sh*t!

  163. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    To be honest, I thought that “Only Girl In The World” was a 4-minute Estee Lauder ad set to music, lol. I think it’s boring, sure doesn’t help that I don’t like the song. I personally think her best videos were in the GGGB era. I’m not gonna lie, all the singles were killer, not just in popularity, but in quality as well. BTW, I love rain, but when you live in NYC, even the worst weather seems great. At least you can brag about your state being the birth place of Nirvana and Pearl Jam and the grunge scene in general.

    @ The Kiddz:

    Diddy better not f*** things up for Janelle.

  164. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    @ True Blue

    What’s up, homie?! Haha! Do you like the song? I’m feeling Rihanna this go round. She’s more of a seasonal artist which in music industry terms means she’s the side chick. We don’t really care about the side chicks feelings or emotions we just wanna beat, beat, beat, beat, beat. 😀

  165. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    That’s true. I actually agree with you a lot lol. But I definitely want to move to NYC after college – but it is nice to be in the area where such amazing artists are from.


  166. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    I applaud Rihanna for not going with the expected dance/club video setting, but that video did look like a commercial. It sort of reminds me of the Gucci Flora commercial.

  167. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    It’s the first single from Loud that I’m actually pleased with. And it’s true, Rihanna functions better as a summertime artist, therefore I think it would have been better if Loud wasn’t released ’til summer of next year. Imagine Katy Perry releasing “California Gurls” in November, that single would not have done so well.

  168. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    Just make sure you find a place to live waaaaaaaay in advance, and make sure you have your money saved up. Apartments are not cheap in NYC (although it depends which borough you will be living in).

  169. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    I do have to agree. If anything so far has been her Thriller, it was Good Girl Gone Bad.
    I really, for some strange reason, feel like this album will disappoint me. We’ll see…I don’t know though. I thought the same about Rated R and I love that record.

    I’m excited to hear S&M though.

  170. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Haha yeah. I’ve heard that a lot xD
    I’m also excited to hear Drink to That (Cheers). That song samples Avril Lavigne of all people…

  171. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    @True Blue

    Ugh. I can’t stand Katy Perry. Oh, do you like my gravatar?


    Favorite song off GGGB was Rehab. Rated R, hands down Fire Bomb. But, she can’t really put the STANK on it live, you know what I mean?

  172. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    Yep, even the non-singles were good (which is rare to say about a pop album these days), although I found “Breakin’ Dishes to be weird as hell, lol. Rated R wasn’t bad, but I just wasn’t feeling it… it’s like the dark feel was too forced. Russian Roulette was quite beautiful, though. I’ve always pictured Amy Lee of Evanescence singing it.

  173. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Really? I loved all of the songs on GGGB except maybe the last three? And I liked Fire Bomb but I LOVED Stupid In Love.

    I don’t know if the right person to ask LOL. I love her live…I am a Ri stan after all lmao.

  174. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    @VA STAND UP!!

    Rihanna has songwriting, production, and video directing credits…

    Are you done Stunt Queen?!

  175. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah, GGGB was epic. I loved “Breakin Dishes”! I just didn’t like “Sell Me Candy” or “Good Girl Gone Bad”. I really liked “Push Up On Me”. GGGB is like a good mix of Rated R and LOUD which is funny because she wanted LOUD to be a mix of GGGB and Rated R…

    I don’t know. Rated R didn’t seem forced to me – on some songs but not all. I loved “Russian Roulette”! The fact that the lead single was a ballad was moving to me. OMG Amy singing that would be amazing lol

  176. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    Yeah, your gravatar is cool. What is it? Oh, and I do like Katy Perry, but she has seriously gone downhill with her new album. At least One of The Boys had an authentic feel to it, but Teenage Dream screams “I’LL DO ANYTHING TO SCORE A #1”. That and her publicity stunt relationship to Russell Brand (sorry, but I don’t buy that b******* that they’re in love).

  177. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    I love that this song puts me in a good mood ^_^
    “Only Girl (In the World)” didn’t do that for me.

  178. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    I LOVED Push Up On Me, it reminds me so much of The Glamorous Life by Sheila E. Another underrated track I love is If I Never See Your Face Again with Maroon 5. The video was great as well, I’m actually surprised that it didn’t blow up as a single (maybe because it was released at the same time as Disturbia?)

  179. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    Lol! I mean, she doesn’t make me want to listen to the live version instead of the album version. But, maybe I’ve just been spoiled too much by Beyonce. *Kanye shrug*

    @True Blue

    It’s a portrait of Bee by Sofia Maldonado.

    Oh, you really think their relationship is a stunt? I just can’t wrap my head around that it would help her gain public interest.

  180. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Oh my God you’re so right! They do sound SO alike. Anyways, that’s true. It kind of was…overshadowed by “Disturbia”. I just find it funny when people say Rihanna is selling out and that Gaga was the one who dared to be different in 2008 with dance when Ri was doing dance in 2008 too. GGGB was a mainly urban album but it did have some dance singles that were released from it.

    I loved IINSYFA though! I wish it had done better…I love how….different it was than what she had been doing. I remember when I couldn’t say the word umbrella in 2007 without people singing that song. Man, she was huge! She’s still big…but Rated R wasn’t HUGE like GGGB (though it did well), so I think she’s kind…trying to earn her way back to fame if that makes sense.

  181. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Beyonce’s SO hard to compare too. I’m glad I didn’t hear her live until recently – I saw Gaga live and she was amazing but even that wasn’t comparable to B.

  182. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    i FUKIN Lovveeeeeeeee Rated R….The Look, Sound, Emotion, Voice ughhh IT-WAS-EVERYTHING.

    Rated R will always be my personal favorite.

  183. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    In my opinion @Dion-ish each Rihanna album is better than the last. Katy Perry isn’t that way for me but B and Gaga are. Ke$ha….we’ll see.

  184. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Yea It Seems. But IMO nothing will top Rated R. I’ll have to hear all of LOUD before i make judgement tho.

  185. BeyStan October 16, 2010

    I like it. The old Rihanna is finally back!

  186. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    Wow, her portraits of other artists are really dope as well. The Gaga one looks like the real life incarnation. As for Katy, well consider this: they get married, pretend to be happy for a little bit, then have a public divorce, so constant media frenzy= interest in Katy= record sales. I’m not saying it’ll work, but I think that’s the intention behind it. Besides, who the hell in their right mind could be genuinely attracted to Russell Brand?

    @ RiRiLoud:

    I think with Gaga, it’s that she brought back the trend of Euro-pop dance, mixed with a glam rock flare. I mean, look how everyone is all of a sudden putting out records that have a euro-pop feel (that doesn’t mean everyone is copying her, though). GGGB is pop and R&B, with zero traces of a Euro-pop influence, so she’s a different kind of dance pop.

  187. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    You’ve seen Bee AND Gaga? Damn, I lost my concert virginity to Beyonce and I LOVED every minute of it. I don’t know if I’ll like Gaga, though. Did she use alot of props and stuff?

  188. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    You saw Gaga live? Damn, I’ve tried so hard to get tickets to her show, but the problem is that she’s either ALWAYS sold out or I have no money.

  189. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    Rihanna IS Dance-pop …The Fukin Definition. IMO

  190. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah, we’ll see.

    LOL. I saw Rihanna, then B and then Gaga.

    Hahaha it’s harder in NYC. I saw Gaga here in Seattle but I got tickets the day they were up for sale. I spent $200 and my tickets were WAY off of the stage LOL

  191. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    Rihanna brought back a lot of elements you see in the music industry today IMO.

    Before GGGB there werent a lot of outrageous Pop, Dance-Pop records out Like What Rihanna delivered ex. SUAD, DSTM, Breakin Dishes, Disturbia and the EPIC Umbrella. She pushed in the envelope in music and fashion….then BOOM it exploded into a lot of what you see today. Same goes for Gaga, her outrageous style and combination of Electro hits exploded and is now a lot of what you see today as well.

    IMO Rihanna and Gaga will be future icons of the Pop music scene.

  192. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    I hate you. Lol!

  193. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    I agree. Ri and Gaga are here to stay. Ke$ha and Katy…I don’t think so. As for B, she’ll be around as long as she wants to. Unlike the others, she will never be out of popularity IMO.

    Everyone says Gaga revitalized pop. I personally, for the same reasons as you, think that Ri revitalized pop and that Gaga took that to another level.

  194. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    Were you at least able to see her?

  195. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    I mean, was she visible to you?

  196. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Haha. They’re the only concerts I’ve seen but B>Ri=Gaga
    Rihanna and Gaga were both good. Just different.

  197. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Yess exactly lol. From the Style, Music, Etc etc. Gaga just took it to another level. and i respect her for that as well.

  198. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah, she was. Like we were on the left of the stage (if you were standing in front of the stage) and WAY up. There were SO many fights among fans though!

    At Rihanna’s show, I was in the front LOL. That’s when I didn’t have to pay for college lmao.

    At B’s, I wasn’t way far back like @Gaga’s but I wasn’t up front like Ri’s.

    Gaga put on a SHOW though. If you can see her, DO IT! That girl’s tour had a STORY and it was so amazing and funny. Love her <3

  199. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    My VERY first concert was Madonna’s Drowned Tour #EPIC and every last one after it…

    then i attended mostly a Lot of Festivals..

    Recently Britney’s Circus Tour and Rihanna’s LGOE …Have yet to see Gaga, wouldn’t mind tho.

  200. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah absolutely

  201. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    I know, I see her performances on YouTube, and I keep thinking to myself how nice it would be to actually see her live. It would be a mind-blowing experience.

  202. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah, it really was. I hope you can! 🙂
    But she’ll definitely be touring from years to come lol

  203. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    It’s more than I’ve been to. I’m going to see Janelle and Of Montreal in November, though. I’m super excited for that. But, I know I’m going to be comparing it to Bee’s, that woman is just a BEAST when performing. She truly is the best singer/entertainer of this generation. I might go see Gaga when she comes back to H-Town.

    P.S. I love these comments (no one posting chart positions and all that nonsense)

  204. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    JANELLE? OF MONTREAL? LOL I’m jealous! But that’s true – she just kills it that way. And I loved Gaga – you should see her for sure.

    I know right?!? It’s so refreshing for a post NOT to have comments that are arguments. Trent is probably pissed off that we aren’t arguing though lol

  205. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    You’re gonna see Janelle, I am jealous of you. I was supposed to see Florence+ The Machine, she’s coming to my hometown in November as well, but by the time I found out that she was coming, she was already sold out (I will still find a way, though). And yeah, it is nice when everyone is calmly discussing music as opposed to having stan wars (although those are funny as hell).

  206. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Those are hilarious! I love Florence! I still find it funny that she is friends with Beyonce…unlikely pair lol. But their music is so good :DDDD
    I’m glad they’re getting some recognition

  207. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    @RiRiLoud & @True Blue

    Yea, she’s touring with them.
    I need to listen to more Of Montreal albums, they have so many and I only own like four. And I don’t want to look stupid, because I don’t know the words. Lol

    I want to see Florence + The Machine too. Oh, Gaga too, but her tickets are so EXPENSIVE. Like there is no reason for that, chile….

  208. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Thank you! I want to go so badly! The only problem is, I don’t think I can…

  209. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    Flo LOVES Bey. She even covered “Halo” (this version isn’t very good, but the performance where she did a great cover has been inexplicably deleted from YouTube: )

    @ TheKiddz:

    Ticket shows for big-name acts in general are expensive, no?

  210. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    ^^^ LMAO!!!! That’s actually brilliant!!! LOL @ Gaga as Cinderella!!!

  211. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    @True Blue

    Yea, I was surprised at how “off” she sounded on that cover, but Halo is an extremely hard song to sing because of the transitions from multiple registers. Oh, don’t forget her dancing to Single Ladies and calling it one of her favorite videos 😀 Not that @RiRiLoud is, but I always find it weird that people assume Bee has no friends, or it’s awkward if she’s pictured with someone you wouldn’t associate her with. I mean, she is best friends with Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Big-name acts are typically expensive but I was looking at prices and even the nosebleed seats were crazy. I don’t recall Bee’s being expensive, then again I couldn’t even breathe when I bought my tickets.

  212. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    LOL @TheKiddz
    But who are Belle, Sleeping Beauty and Ariel? o_O
    Anyways, I love that this post has become yours, mine and @TrueBlue

  213. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    LOL….I Cant really tell who the others are.

  214. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah I just didn’t see those two being friends. I don’t know why but that is kind of true…for some reason Beyonce seems…introverted. Like I was shocked when she was in NYC with Jay-Z…

  215. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    Yeah, it is. But I swear, she performed the song on Radio 1’s Big Weekend festival, and she actually got it right. I even bookmarked it, but now it’s gone and I can’t find it. Florence is usually good at covering songs. Check her out covering En Vogue:

    And as for expensive tickets, maybe it’s just me, but once I become rich enough to never give a f***, I would actually lower my ticket prices to a more reasonable price so my fans can have an easier time seeing me.

  216. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    LOL! We’ve taken over the post. You’re right – she does seem introverted. But, there is a saying that introverted people make up 60% of the “gifted”. I still think she’s a robot. Bionic Bee!

    @True Blue

    I just love her vibrato and her little inflections. You can tell she has some gospel/r&b influences. Thanks for that!

  217. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    I think you’re right about the most intoverted being the most gifted. MJ, Freddie Mercury, Prince, they’re all introverts in real life.

  218. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    I can only tell Gaga (dead giveaway), Katy Perry, & Rihanna. And if that’s Beyonce, they gave her some serious bronzer. Lol

  219. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    LOL, we should hijack posts like this more often. Next time, we’ll take it even further and start discussing random things that have nothing to do with music, like recipes. It’s gonna throw people (Sam & Trent in particular) off even more.

  220. UGh October 16, 2010

    Now this is the type of music this b**** needs to bring. I love this song. I played in several times today in a row. Bring music like this Rihanna, not that generic pop s*** like “Only Girl In the World” or the sizzling hot auto tune mess that is “Who’s That Chick”.
    This type of music is what suites her voice because her vocals aren’t strong.

  221. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    OHHH Florence better Work to En Vogue and Sing the All Mighty Madonna’s Electrifying Borderline! Yess lol

  222. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    @True Blue

    She sang Something’s Got a Hold On Me with far more authenticity than a certain vocally challenged singer. #noshade Lol

  223. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) October 16, 2010

    I LOVE IT!!!

  224. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    Yess i didnt know it was beyonce either until someone mentioned it.

  225. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Those covers are great! And it is true. They seriously are – MJ, Prince, B – geniuses. But I seriously do think we should do that. That would be hilarious! If Trent and Sam read this, they’ll/they’d be like “what the?” LOL

    I think that Bionic B is an awesome name! I really hope her 4th album isn’t called Queen B in actuality – I’ve been hearing that title.
    Then again, Bionic was supposed to be Light & Darkness and Avril’s new album was supposed to be something along the lines of Pink Punk Princess or something.

  226. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ TheKiddz:

    Can you give me a hint as to which singer you’re talking about? I honestly don’t know who else has covered it (I know Christina has covered some Etta songs, but not that particular one).

  227. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    OMG MAYBE! I think Christina Aguilera is the Sleeping Beauty in that cartoon @TrueBlue @Dion-ish and @TheKiddz

  228. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    Jay calls her Bionic B, after she had that tumble. Ouch! I doubt she’ll name her album “Queen B”, her naysayers will drag her through the mud for that one. Some stans came up with the title IV for her next album which I like since IV is very much her number; it’s tattooed on her ring finger, the month and day she got married and her fourth album.

  229. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    IV…that would be a good title. But it’d be M by the time all the re-releases were done.

  230. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    I think Sleeping Beauty is Britney Spears. I would assume that Ariel is Florence Welch (?), and maybe the Princess Frog (the one in green) is Kelly Rowland. Those are just wild guesses, though.

  231. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    @True Blue

    You got it. She covers it in her upcoming movie. And you’re spoiling me with all the Florence covers. She’s amazing!

  232. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Then who is Beyonce?

  233. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ RiRiLoud:

    Bey is Jasmine.

  234. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ TheKiddz:

    I wouldn’t call Christina vocally challenged, more like technique-challenged (and if that’s exactly what you meant, then sorry about that).

  235. HATIN IS FOR SUCKAS October 16, 2010

    Hot damn

    I don’t hate Rihanna I dislike her but me disliking her has nothing to do with me not liking the song. If I said I don’t like the song I don’t like the song. Point Blank Period.

  236. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Then who is Rihanna? o_O

  237. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    Well people were saying Rihanna was Jasmine becuase of the black bob and umbrella outfit.

  238. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    Lol @ M. I thought Jazzmin was Beyonce, but the one in the green does have her hair style.

  239. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    I thought Jasmine was Bey because of the way she was posing. It’s very Beyoncé-ish.

  240. Syko October 16, 2010

    cud sleeping beauty be madonna?[just cuz of the cone tata’s lOl] and i feel like christina is ariel :\ for sum reason….. i have no idea who belle wud be tho, i wud’ve thought katy perry intially but she’s snow white…..she does luk like jennifer love hewitt tho, but i highly doubt it’s supposed to be her

    oh and beyonce wud be princess fiona, just cuz of the leotard

  241. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    Oh wait, you’re right! The one in green has Beyoncé’s hairstyle & leotard from the Single Ladies video! But why did they make her darker…?

  242. Syko October 16, 2010

    how embarrassing, i didnt see that link b4 sigh, but i was right woooot :]

  243. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    Epic fail on Belle being Britney Spears. Seriously, WTF was that?

  244. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    @True Blue

    Yea, that’s what I meant. The tone of her voice is warm and it naturally has a lot of depth. But, her technique goes against everything I’ve been taught. She has no musical purpose with the things she does with her voice; timing is horrible; sense of pitch is atrocious; phrasing is a joke; improvisations are characterized by pointless runs that fall flat out of meter and never fit the chord progressions; and she never sings within any genre effectively. Her technique makes these flaws 10x worse. Ugh and it pisses me off, such a beautiful voice. Sorry, I’m high off chocolate. Lol

  245. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    Yea IDK Why i was thinking the same.

    and LOL at the Britney Comment..i Knoww i was like WTF…Maybe its from the Early days

  246. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ TheKiddz:

    I know, such a great gift, and it gets abused so much. Like giving a 16-year-old a Maserati when he can’t drive for s***, lol.

  247. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    LOL, how did Mariah get in there? She’s not exactly a pop princess, she’s more of a vocal diva.

  248. Syko October 16, 2010

    ye brit’s is from hit me baby one more time….hence the catholic skool girl outfit styling and the pigtails and the brunette hair, christina’s from candy man, hence the sailor outfit and the red hair

  249. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    LOL I Dont Know….But she is surprisingly considered Pop by many

  250. the kiddz October 16, 2010


    *DEAD* at Mariah being Gluttony. They’re wrong for that. Lol Is that Xtina as Lust?

    @ True Blue

    Lol or a violin being played by a m*****

  251. the kiddz October 16, 2010

    Well, Mariah is primarily a Pop artist. Most of her biggest hits are pop and she is credited for creating the “Hip-Pop” genre, because of her single Fantasy with O.D.B. She, along with Whitney took Pop music and combined it with their gospel flourishes.

  252. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    LOL Hell yea…i was on the floor honey

  253. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    Anybody have any Favorite Photos of there favorite artist….I Think i have like hundreds on my computer, more then myself lol

  254. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    What happened to @RIRILOUD

  255. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    LOL I’m still here. I just got confused on what you guys were talking about.

  256. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    And my roomie wants to watch a movie. LOL she’s Japanese and wants to watch the movie in Japanese. I don’t speak Japanese AT ALL and she speaks English perfectly, so I don’t understand why we should watch a movie in Japanese WITHOUT English subtitles LMAO

  257. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    OH lol we were talking about the 7 deadly sins of Pop Picture…

    and yea thats kinda ODD lol

  258. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    LMAO yeah she’s…weird sometimes. But I see.
    What do you guys think the “7 Deadly Sins” are?

  259. DION-ISH October 16, 2010

    Guess im gonna watch some Episodes i DVR’d


  260. DION-ISH October 16, 2010


    You didnt see it…it was on the picture w/ the artist.

    F****** luvs it! Can’t wait for the album.

  265. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    @ Team Weezy:

    What’s up? Sorry that you got left out, lol. I bet you’re surprised to see me & TheKiddz having civil conversations with two Rihanna stans, since usually it’s an all-out war with the stans.

    @ Dion-ish:


  266. TeAM WeeZY October 16, 2010

    @True Blue

    Yeah I’ve been having a debate with my Hubby and little brother about Nicki Minaj for the past couple of hours! Those idiots. LOL!

    Anyway I am a bit surprised at this post being civilized! It’s a good thing though!

  267. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    @TrueBlue and @TeamWeezy
    Yeah it’s gone well! I hated TrueBlue for stupid reasons but we have some stuff in common LOL.

    Oh TeamWeezy, do you like NIcki?
    I LOVE her album cover! But I think that album will flop for some reason…

  268. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    ^^^ Yeah, I have a feeling that it’s gonna flop too…

  269. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah. It’s sad because I love Nicki but…I don’t know. She had a pretty successful song with “Your Love” but she hasn’t had a lot of big features lately and neither “Check It Out” nor “Right Thru Me” are doing much on the charts. Maybe if “Check It Out” hits the top 20 and “Right Thru Me” goes top 40, she may be on the right track. I just have a feeling she’ll barely scrape the top 10.

  270. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah, I know. I mean she’s cool and I want to buy the album but she hasn’t had a lot of big features lately and neither “Check It Out” nor “Right Thru Me” has become a big hit. “Your Love” has been long forgotten but maybe if CIO goes top 20 and RTM reaches the top 40, she could be on the right track.

    She’s definitely not going to sell 500,000 records first week like Drake though. A #1 is not in her zone in my opinion. I can see why the album was pushed up a day…

  271. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 16, 2010

    ^^^ Yeah, cause in spite of all the hype surrounding her, she’s never really had a big hit song, and waiting this long to put out her album is a big mistake. They should’ve put it out when her buzz was fresh and people were excited about her. Now she’s just overexposed. I’m amazed that Drake had the big opening week that he had, considering that his album came out over a year after he had been hyped with some singles. There is this thing about striking while the iron’s hot. Especially when you’re a new artist.

  272. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    That’s very true. None of her singles have been huge. At least Drake has had a huge hit. I just think that she’s kind of an in-the-moment artist. Unfortunately, I don’t think she’s here to stay. But it’s true. Artists who wait so long to put out albums/their labels who do that make stupid decisions. It’s just bad for the album.

  273. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    It’s not always the greatest thing for an artist to be a perfectionist.

  274. ADE October 16, 2010

    Heard this on the radio last night and I’m hooked. Such a banger. “I heard you good with them soft lips..yeah you know word of mouth.” Drake went hard.

  275. bobs October 16, 2010

    Holy Mega-hit. I’m a huge Rihanna stan, but I hate ONLY GIRL. I’m not gonna like every song she does, but this is the JAM. I can’t stop listening. Kudos for Grape Juice for almost extending that olive branch.

  276. Doofus October 16, 2010

    Loves it Loves it Loves it

  277. Crack is wack October 16, 2010

    cant wait to see the video… love it Drake and Riri were both good

  278. TeAM WeeZY October 16, 2010

    @True Blue @RiRiLoud
    Yeah that’s what I was telling them, that her album sales will not live up to the hype. They think she will sell just as much as Drake did but her singles have basically flopped! Especially what ‘was’ her first single Massive Attack. Because it flopped they eventually called it a buzz single. I’m not saying she will flop like a Bionic or Graffiti but I think she will flop as in sell considerably less than expected.

    I think she has a lot of potential but the gimmicks and Barbie crap makes me dislike her! I don’t think she can rap as good as Kim in her prime or Eve and definitely not Lauryn! People (my Hubby and little brother) just hear her flow and not her lyrics! I.e. Bottoms Up which was good flow wise but not good lyrics wise! Her best verse so far is on Monster.

  279. sheesh October 16, 2010

    SHADEEEEEEEE!!!!! lol

  280. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    Yeah I think she’ll have decent first week sales but they won’t live up to what is expected of her.

    I think she has a good flow, and I definitely prefer her to Kim, but she hasn’t met the standards of Eve, Missy and Lauryn (specifically) because her lyrics are POINTLESS. She seriously, besides maybe “RIght Thru Me”, has yet to release a song, or be featured on a song, where her lyrics have real meaning.

  281. RiRiLOUD October 16, 2010

    I don’t even know what HER singles are. She released “Massive Attack” – it did nothing on the charts and is now a “buzz” single. Nicki even said that it won’t be on the album. Then “Your Love” did pretty well and I thought that was the first official single and that “Check It Out” was the 2nd. But then “Right Thru Me” is released and THAT is single #1? I have no clue what is going on with Pink Friday.

    Love its cover though. I don’t love her “gimmicks” but I like the Barbie image for some reason.

  282. GangsterA October 16, 2010
