Rihanna’s crooning ballad, “Love On the Brain” gets a vamped up 80’s-esque remix. The original version serves as one of the singers most captivating songs, vocally. She squeals, growls, and moans about being in love with someone who maybe doesn’t deserve her; “You love when I fall apart, so you can put me together, and throw me against the wall.” The Gigamesh Remix takes on a happier feel, with a lighter beat as the chorus is edited to just Rihanna shouting, “must be love.” Remixed, “Brain” takes on a whole new meaning that makes you bop your head and tap your feet while paying homage to the 1985 hit, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” Gospel goes out the window, and electro pop slides in almost as if it was meant to be this way. I have now dubbed this as one of my favorite Rihanna songs remixed.

Just when you thought you were off the Anti high… Rihanna comes back for more and teams up with Mike Will Made-It on “Nothing Is Promised.” In classic Rihanna banger fashion, she brags about shopping in Paris, money, cars, vacations, money, and did I mention money?? “Ten million in cash, put up in a stash, it’s under my mattress,” the Barbados-born singer confidently half raps. “Promised” is the newest addition to your workout playlist. Rih proves her crossover from pop star to hip-hop sensation is alive and dope as hell. She doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, and that’s okay with me.

5 Things We Want to Hear on Drake’s “Views”

Views, is said to drop April 29.

I’ll be ready…

 

1.) Another Rihanna collab: “Work,” “What’s My Name,” “Take Care.” C’mon…we can’t get enough of this duo. Rihanna’s raspy voice and Drake’s gentle notes lead you into a romantic trance every time. A joint album should be in the future for these two.

2.) More tropical vibes: “Hotline Bling” had it and his latest single “One Dance” has it. Conga drums, shakers, and a thick beat. Could a Drake-ish “Work” be on Views? Most likely! And I hope so!

3.) Something as hype as “Jumpman”: You just can’t help but rap to it. It has it all; punchy lyrics and an addicting beat. Not to mention, major party power. It gets the people going. Hopefully Drake has his own “Jumpman” on this album that spits some real dirt.

4.) Lyrics about being “friends” with the Kardashians: We’ve seen him at the parties, posin’ for the Gram alongside TV’s favorite family. Now, let’s hear about which one you’re really “friends” with.

5.) Another Majid Jordan duet: “Hold On We’re Going Home,” “My Love”… You can’t deny that Jordan brings just the right vibe to Drake’s soft spoken raps. The two compliment each other extremely well and I can only hope that Views brings us another collab.
