Music Review: Rihanna’s “Unapologetic”

Released: November 19, 2012

Label: Roc Nation/Island Def Jam

Purchase: Amazon

A little step up from her previous oversexed Talk that Talk, but still not even close to impressive. Unapologetic sounds mostly exhausted and rushed. There’s nothing wrong with putting out an album every year to stay current if you can handle it, but at least take the time to perform songs  that will be embedded in the hearts and minds of listeners. Sure there are likable tracks here and there, but not good enough to give goose bumps.  Continue reading “Music Review: Rihanna’s “Unapologetic””

WARNING: TRUST NO ONE!

Rihanna‘s latest lawsuit is proof that you absolutely cannot trust anyone in entertainment when it comes to handling your money. My advise, manage your own finances.

Besides the evident fact that the male lead in the video has somewhat of a slight resemblance to r&b/pop crooner Chris Brown (must be the horrific bleached blonde hair), there are several scenes depicting heated arguments between the two characters, particularly the one taking place in their car. This led many (excluding me) to believe that Continue reading “Rihanna, at the center of controversy again”

Shontelle “Says hello to goodbye”

This island songbird should seriously be called the “princess of hearbreak songs”, because her latest music video “Say hello to goodbye” is just as sad as “Impossible“. Shontelle‘s new single is a mixture of pop and rock, and has smooth but emotional vocals flowing through the song. Her debut album is pretty good she just needs more promo in my opinion. Watch the video above … Continue reading Shontelle “Says hello to goodbye”
