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!

So far i’m loving We Found Love, Where Have You Been?, Drunk On Love and Farewell - it seems like this album has more urban influences than her previous albums. From the clips, it doesn’t sound too appealing. Maybe RiRi should have taken a bit more of a break between Loud and this new set.
