Rihanna ft. Jay-Z: ‘Talk That Talk’
Rihanna’s position as a role model for young girls has been a recurring topic of debate in recent months.
Whether it’s for her self-destructive music videos and collaborations or her penchant for whips and chains, the ‘Bajan’ star has become a figurehead for controversy; and judging by her new single ‘Talk That Talk’, she has no plans to calm her rebellious streak just yet.
“Yeah boy I like it, yeah boy I like it/ Love it when you talk that talk to me yeah,” Rihanna brusquely purrs to label boss Jay-Z over a Stargate-helmed chorus of trouncing synths and tumbling R&B beats.
By the time the hip-shaking middle 8 kicks in, not only do we admire her stamina for churning out irresistible and club-ready anthems, but we suspect her long-suffering search for a new beau just got a whole lot easier.
