| 21 October , 2009 | 1 Reply

Everyone’s talking about Rihanna‘s hotly anticipated fourth studio album and the wait is now ova! Rihanna announced her fourth album, Rated R, will be out Monday, November 23rd.

Rated R\’s first single is called Russian Roulette was directed byAnthony Mandler. The song was written and produced by fellow Def Jam artist Ne-Yo – disappointment has been expressed as the first single is a ballard.

This is her front cover, what do you think? She’s become very ‘confronting’ since her bashing by Chris Brown.  Here she is with a naked top half but with barbed wire protecting her from anyone getting close ‘dont come near me‘ … strong message there!


You can listen to the song here and these are the lyrics if you’re interested:

Rihanna – ‘Russian Roulette\’ Lyrics

Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take a gun, and count to three
I\’m sweating now, moving slow
No time to think, my turn to go

And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And I\’m terrified but I\’m not leaving
Know that I must must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

Say a prayer to yourself
He says close your eyes
Sometimes it helps
And then I get a scary thought
That he\’s here means he\’s never lost


As my life flashes before my eyes
I\’m wondering will I ever see another sunrise?
So many won\’t get the chance to say goodbye
But it\’s too late too pick up the value of my life

    I think she needs to stay away from ballads. While all her songs seem to be hits, she isn’t the strongest vocalist and her dancey, poppy tunes are so much more fun.
    Leave the ballads for the Mariahs and Leona Lewis’ of the world.
