She does not need more Wonderbread with the crust cut off & Mayo piano ballads like Stay, keep that out of the building, it doesn't even merit being in the cutting room, let alone on the next album.
If she ever re-records a track though, I definitely think it should be Unfaithful. It's not really a bad song, but her vocal is SO atrocious. It makes Thinking Of You and Lady Gaga's Eastern European Streetwalker Odyssey sound like Annie Lennox masterworks, it's that bad.
Really all Rihanna needs now is the zone to swag out. WT still isn't all that, but when she drops that "dhuuuuuuuuuooooohhhhh" before the first chorus, that's that magic that makes the difference between people leaving the bar early and alone, and keeping up with the game. Cause while they could go home and bust a nut solo, @badgalriri has reminded them that they can #strive for better!
With the Britney Super Bowl rumors now turned down by Pepsi, I really hope Riganna gets the Super Bowl halftime show. Plus, with a new album coming up, this would be a perfect marketing strategy. And Rihanna definitely has the discography to play the Super Bowl.
It's interesting because her and Skrillex never crossed paths during the period when dubstep was a thing I think (and Rihanna was one of the first into it as well). I wasn't into his style then, but I'm curious as to what they might come up with now given their recent projects.
After the disaster that was This Is What You Came For, I would never want Rihanna to cross paths with house and EDM again. If she does doo something with Skrillex, let's hope it's actually somewhat good. I'd easily take another Rihanna/Drake collab over a Rihanna/Calvin Harris one, that's for sure.
This Is What You Came For is one of Rihanna's best collaborations. I've loved every collaboration between Calvin and Rihanna. Not to mention TIWYCF is one of the better pop songs from last year which was generally a lackluster year.
