I've had about a week or so to let the shock of "Russian Roulette" to settle, and you know what? I bought it on iTunes just yesterday. Why the sudden change of heart? Letting go of dreams of more Umbrella's and Disturbia's, I listened to this new side of Rihanna. Muumuse coins it best, "Rihan-noir."
Rihan-noir sounds exactly how you imaged it would. It's dark, moody, dramatic and a lot more fierce than Beyonce's last album. In a sense, Rated R is going to be Rihanna's 808s and Heartbreak. I'm officially on board.
