Never one to shy away from expressing her sexuality, Pop tart Rihanna has oft come under fire for what some describe as ‘her use of R Rated lyrics’.
Now, in what will sure to have many a prude clutching at their metaphorical pearls, a new song named ‘Red Lipstick’ lifted from the singer’s ‘Talk That Talk‘ album has just surfaced.
Listen- at your own risk- below…
If Rihanna was the kind of artist who was expected to grow artistically with each release, ‘Lipstick’ would be a complete failure.
However, since her fans are impressed with almost anything she does- this cut will be sure to tickle their simple little fancies.
Thematically, it really is more of the same (see ‘Talk That Talk‘, ‘S&M’ and ‘Cockiness’) and coupled with the fact that world had already heard the backing track two years ago, it’s very difficult to listen to this with fresh ears.
Either way, you can be sure that if it gets the single treatment, a #1 chart position is very likely.
That is- if it doesn’t pull a ‘California King Bed‘ and ‘Man Down‘ and embarrass Ms. Fenty something terrible.
