Rihanna does it again! This week, Rih Rih dropped a brand new song, and all I could think about as I listened, was riding around with my sunroof open, while waving to the good people of Atlanta when the Summer hits. This rugged tune, appropriately titled, “B*tch Better Have My Money” is my new theme song.
Is this NOT what everybody has ever wanted to say to anyone that’s ever owed them ANYTHING? Produced by Deputy and co-produced by musical genius Kanye West, the song had no choice but to be a hit. Deputy and Kanye also got a little help from Travis Scott and Wonda Girl.
The album doesn’t have an official title as of now, but the hashtag #R8 is what the singer has been using when she posts to Instagram. Take a listen to “BBHMM” NOW!
Tell me you’re not ready to go out into the world and start knocking on people’s doors, calling people’s phones and collecting all your debts! Tell me you don’t feel like Debo! I’ve always said that I don’t think Rihanna is the best singer, but she SURE is an entertainer! I am definitely entertained!
If there is any doubt that Rihanna will be here in the years to come, she made it very clear in an interview with MTV News that she doesn’t plan on going anywhere.
“I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years. I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years,” the singer told MTV. “I want to make songs that are timeless.”
Rihanna has a deeper, more popular discography than almost any other working pop star. Between 2005 and 2012, she released seven albums — almost an album per year. She has seen 26 of her songs hit the Billboard top 10. The only other artists to have a number-one single every year across seven years are Elvis and the Beatles. Her 2013 single with Eminem, “The Monster,” became her 13th song to reach the number-one spot, tying her with Michael Jackson.
WOW! You learn something new every day. You go girl!
Sidenote: What do we think about the cover art for her single?
Some people were hating on it, but I love it! She’s giving me Frida Khalo, 80’s realness!
