Rihanna goes geisha for Coldplay, filming a video which plays when the band performs Princess Of China. A longer, official version will be released in the coming weeks. The video for Where Have You Been is coming later today, too!
Rihanna is set to release the Calvin Harris produced Where Have You Been, the next single from Talk That Talk very shortly, and a video is being prepared as we speak! In this short clip Ri Ri gives us a look at the choreography, looks like she’s going hard this time!
Are you excited for the video? Let us know in the comments!
Can you even believe this? Rihanna has featured Chris Brown on a Birthday Cake remix, and it dropped moments ago appropriately on Rihanna‘s 24th birthday. Ugh, what a poor decision, I can’t believe her record label allowed this…. oh wait, of course they did, everyone loves a bit of controversy!
We’ve been enjoying Rihanna ‘s Talk That Talk album immensely over the last few months, the album is packed with numerous treats such as We Found Love, which is already a classic in our book! For our latest giveaway, we are super excited to be giving you the opportunity to win a copy of the album signed by the lovely RiRi!
HOW DO I ENTER?
We’d love it if you liked Hard Candy on Facebook and this post up above.
A blonde Rihanna works it out in the new video for You Da One, the latest single to be taken from Talk That Talk. The clip was directed by Melina Matsoukas, who also created the controversial We Found Love and S&M videos, and it draws inspiration from Clockwork Orange. I think that Ri Ri may well be the only person I’ve seen that makes wearing a grill looks good!
Stay turned to Hard Candy for a very special Talk That Talk giveaway coming up soon!
There’s always something so thrilling about artists you love covering songs you adore, especially when the results are as stunning as Florence and the Machines‘ take on Drake & Rihanna‘s Take Care.
She delivers a totally flawless performance and I really love her spin on the song. Just look at the lucky crowd, how are they maintaining their composure? I would have been losing it! I swear everything she touches turns to gold!
Rihanna paid a visit to X Factor UK at the weekend to perform We Found Love. She started things off slow perched on a hairdryer (yeah, I don’t know what the set was all about either) in what appeared to be a rather demure looking outfit, then quickly amped things up!
I loved the performance, although vocally she was a little off, her dancers were on point though, and at the end of the day you really can’t go wrong with any performance of this amazing song!
Her latest albumTalk That Talkdropped today and I must say that I’m really impressed with it. Lyrically it’s her raunchiness effort to date, she gets dirty and I like it! Currently I’m all about the title track which features a killer verse from Jay Z, the emotionally honest ballad Drunk On Love, the reggae tinged Watch and Learn where she instructs her man how to do it, and of course the Calvin Harris collaboration We Found Love!
I’m not sure if it beats out Loudfor me yet, but it might just do in the long run! Give it a listen and let us know what you think!
Rihanna is streaming the entire Talk That Talk album on Facebook as part of the large scale Unlocked campaign. Listen to the album in full and then tell us your favorite tracks. Right now we’re loving We Found Love, Where Have You Been and the XX sampled Drunk On Love.
The new Drake album Take Careleaked a few days ago so I’m late to the party, but I just had to do a post on the title track Take Care that features Rihanna.
I know that you’re thinking Drake is not our usual forte, but with a track produced by Jamie XX featuring the lovely Rihanna, he finds himself firmly in Hard Candy territory! The track samples Jamie XXs reworking of Gil Scott-Heron’s I’ll Take Care of You.
I’ve not played much of the rest of the album yet, but with collaborations galore with artists like The Weeknd and Nicki Minaj and a handful of Stevie Wonder productions, I think it’s going to be a winner!
