The video shows the singer – who usually does not dance – rocking to some intense choreography alongside a tribal-inspired backdrop.

I just posted the Chris Brown’s “Turn Up The Music (Remix)” featuring former flame Rihanna, and now it is Brown’s turn to make his feature on the MUCH anticipated full release of Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” off Talk That Talk.
A few months ago, during the release of Talk That Talk, I wrote a long rant about how “Birthday Cake” should have been presented as a full song.
But this new remix has finally shut me up! This version is dirtier and badder than I expected.
Chris Brown’s nasty vocals really do justice to the bad-bitch sex anthem.

Maybach Music maven Rick Ross, whose new mixtape God Forgives, I Don’t should be released any day now, has jumped on Rihanna’s easy riding title track off her latest album Talk That Talk.
The track is one of my favorites off the album, so I’m happy to see it being given more shine!
“Boy talk that talk to me all night..”

With every new album that releases, I tend to play it on repeat for a few weeks to feel it out and see if I can really get into it. Rihanna’s Talk That Talk is no different. I like a majority of the songs off the album, but the one that I highlight the most is “Do Ya Thang”, from the deluxe edition of the album.
“Do Ya Thang” stuck out to me the first time I heard it because its aesthetic does not match anything that Rihanna has ever recorded. The track (which slightly reminds me of Lady Gaga’s “Eh Eh [Nothing Else I Can Say]) is fresh, fun, bright and loving. I wish there were more tracks like this on the album, because it gives us a new sound and flavor from the Pop artist.
I think if Rihanna releases this song as a summer track, it’ll do wonders for Talk That Talk’s sales. I can already imagine what the video would look like!
What is your favorite track off Talk That Talk?

Bajan Pop songstress Rihanna released her sixth studio album Talk That Talk on November 21. While I am pretty content with the record’s material, I am still upset over the incredibly short mega-track “Birthday Cake.” I just need to get this off my chest, so bear with me!
“Birthday Cake”, produced by The-Dream, was presented to fans as an album interlude. But when I first heard the track on Talk That Talk, I was confused, shocked, excited and highly upset.
This song is NOT an interlude by any means. Album interludes serve as a precursor for the next track in order to build anticipation for that said track. “We All Want Love” succeeds “Birthday Cake”; these two songs have nothing in common. So why sell “Birthday Cake” as an interlude? It is not even titled as an interlude on the album itself!
“Birthday Cake” is the ultimate teaser; it starts with exotic synths then blooms into this bad-bitch sex anthem. Then it suddenly fades away as soon as the track begins to find its center. Why stop? Why?
