New Single Alert : Rihanna’s New Single Has Arrived : “Only Girl” (In The World)

RIRI IS Back!!! The single has arrived and boy is it good! It doesnt disappoint for sure! After all the tough times Rihanna has encountered in the past year you get the feeling she just wants to have some fun! With this new track its the perfect kind of track you can dance along and have a lot of fun to!

After a brief encounter with some deep dark downbeat and pretty emotional music during the Rated R era its a welcome return to some upbeat music! Some would say she’s come full circle by going back to the upbeat sounds which propelled her initally into the limelight and gave her huge success!

On the first listen of this track I was quite shocked that Stargate(producer of previous hits “Rudeboy” , “Take a Bow” etc) were the producers of the track because its not your average typical Stargate kind of production! It follows a similar theme many top artists are following these days with the euro pop style a strong focal point! Its a bit of a dancefloor smash thats for sure! I can just imagine this song blasting out in the clubs right now. Some would point to the fact that Rihanna is simply trying to copy the likes of Gaga by going for this style but Rihanna has played around with this style of music previously and most notably in the pre Gaga era. I think she’s just simply realised that this formula is working in the world of pop today like every other!

This will be certainly be a hit amonst all the top radio stations, without a doubt , i get the feeling they will be hastily arranging a new addition to all their playlists! Gotta deserve a spot on the A playlist surely? Its actually reminscent of the David Guetta produced “Commander” as it has the same sort of dance vibe to it!. “Only Girl” is a big ravey dance hall number complete with a big belter of a chorus from Ri Ri with her shouting out the the strong catchy lyric ” “Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world”! I think a lot of people will like it because quite simply its a song which is relatable and current!

You certainly cant argue with Rihanna’s ability to keep churning out these tracks! Very catchy, almost certainly destined to be another smash! “Only Girl” is the lead single from Rihanna’s upcoming studio album due out in November, which is rumored to be titled Loud. Loving it. Only Girl’ looks to return to Rihanna’s radio-dominating sound, and in a big way!
About the new album, Rihanna had this to say:

I didn’t want to go backward and remake ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna.”
I’m gonna miss the ‘Rated R’ era too, but NOTHING compares to the album I just made.

The Saturdays, who were once on course to top the charts with ‘Missing You’, settle into the lower half of the top 10 this week after falling four places from three to seven.

Elsewhere in the chart, Chase & Status rack up the second-highest new entry of the week with ‘Let You Go’ landing at 11, while Inna’s ‘Amazing’ is another high-charting new arrival at 14.

Just behind them is Tinchy Stryder’s ‘In My System’, which falls out of the top 10 on its second week of release, plummeting six spots to 16.

Meanwhile, Eminem made another small climb, from sixth to fifth spot, while Usher’s ‘OMG‘ re-entered the top ten at number six.

Jason Derulo’s ‘Ridin’ Solo’ and B.o.B’s ‘Nothin’ On You’ plummeted to seventh and eighth place respectively, ahead of ‘Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart’ by Alicia Keys, which was down two to number nine.

Pixie Lott only just missed out on making the top ten with ‘Turn It Up’, while Baddiel & Skinner & The Lightning Seeds benefitted from World Cup fever to rise a huge 43 places to slip inside the top ten.

    Music Video : Kelly Rowland – Commander

    I never really had high expectations for Kelly Rowland’s comeback, but i was really impressed by the Commander track.

    I thought this change in style for Kelly would bring about a greater level of success for her so  i was disappointed to see that the video didnt really live up to the expectations of the track. I thought it would be much better. Kelly premiered the video earlier today and goes all futuristic for the Masashi Muto-directed clip. It features cameo appearances from the song’s creators, producer David Guetta and songwriter Rico Love and sees Kelly having a face-off with her alter ego. The track is the 29-year-old’s first international single from her upcoming new album which currently has a very tentative release date of September 14th. Check it out below:

    The video is a nice video , dont get me wrong , its not at all poor , but when you see the song title , and then watch the video , it doesnt live up to expectations, i really think she should have gone all out on the choreography etc to “COMMAND” the attention of viewers of the video and make it a success.  But i still LOVE the track none the lesss.

    UPDATED :  The video has already been taken down from You Tube… Rumours are that the video was leaked early when it wasnt actually completed. Apparantely the official video premiere will be tomorrow with all aspects of the video completed. So You will have wait for tomorrow to see the finished article! :)

    New Music : Kelly Rowland goes urban for ‘Commander’ remix. Take a listen!
