We haven’t heard any new music from Rihanna since her last album Unapologetic. Now RiRi has put a snippet on her Instagram of a new single called “Kiss It Better”. Looking forward to a new album soon.
2013 was a great year for Mikky Ekko as he’s up for a Grammy for his Duo with Rihanna for the song “Stay”. The track comes from RiRi’s critically acclaimed album Unapologetic, and we couldn’t get enough of it for the next nine months or so. Actually, I’m still not tired of the song, and now Ekko has exclusively released the original version that caught Rihanna’s attention from the start.
Head over to Entertainment Weekly now to listen to it.
Rihanna has been posting behind the scenes pics of her latest video “Pour It Up” for the past week. What possessed her to post a video for a song that’s almost a year old is beyond me. My best guess is that with Miley Cyrus’s MTV awards performance that catapulted twerking into the biggest dance craze to date, it was only right for RiRI to make a video for the one twerk anthem she had on Unapologetic. With all of Riri’s ass clapping and gyrating, Youtube snatched the video off of their servers but I was able to find it on her official website and shared it below.
For all the conspiracy/illuminati theorists out there, I’m sure you’ll have a field with Greek/Roman references in the video. Peep the statue in the background of what I think is Aphrodite/Venus, which explains why there is water in the video. If you’re not up to date on your Greek/Roman mythology catch up on it now with good old Wikipedia.
Rihanna’s edgy persona mixed with Wale’s hit single “Bad”- an anthem for all the rolling stones out there that just cant seem to get the monogamy thing right, seems like the perfect cocktail for a dope remix. The song comes from his last mixtape Folarin and was originally sung by a diamond in the rough- Tiara Thomas. I’ll give it to RiRi she did her thing BUT man oh man it is hard to fill Tiara Thoma’s shoes for that hook. Tiara put her FOOT into the original version, and I can’t help but be slanted to Ms. Thomas. That raspy rough voice on the track gets me every time. Which version do you like better?
I was ecstatic that Rihanna chose to perform “Stay” ft. Mikky Ekko at the Grammys this year. There’s no way in hell she’s not gonna get a Grammy for her album Unapologetic next year. I can’t wait to see how 2013 pans out for Mikky Ekko as well. Â Until then, we have a video for the single below.
Theophilus London explodes out the blocks with a remix to Rihanna’s dub step infused hybrid track “Jump” from her latest studio albumÂ Unapologetic. London put a completely different spin on it, adding verses, slowing down the beat just a tad. What do you think?
We got a taste of Cocaine 80’s Flower of Life project when they released trackÂ “Higher Self”. Although Cocaine 80’s is a loose collective of artists and producers, it seems like the James Fauntleroy is the head vocalist with No ID on the boards. Fauntleroy is no stranger to writing hits as he’s Â also penned and arranged “Get it Over With” from Rihanna’s latest album Unapologetic, “Fertilizer” on Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange, and many others. You can also expect to hear from Common and sultry singer and Top Dawg Entertainment affiliate, Jhene Aiko, along with others from the group on this project.Â Now you can stream Flower of Life in its entirety below.
It’s looking like we can expect to Â hear Mikky Ekko’s work with the Rihanna infiltrating radio airwaves 10 times an hour in the near future. Lets just hope we don’t end up hating a song we love so dearly at the moment. “Stay” is a slower ballad with amazing lyrics–a change in direction from Rihanna’s first upbeat single “Diamonds”. If you haven’t heard “Stay” yet, check it out below. Both of these tracks come from Rihanna’s recent release Unapologetic.
If you haven’t heardÂ Unapologetic preview it here.
