Rihanna is a mega star for a reason, she is an amazing singer, Humanitarian, she can act, she has a clothing line and she is a model. The one thing that people don’t talk too much about is her rap skills. I am serious this woman can flow. here are a few songs to listen too where she has amazing timing and rap cadence and after you listen to them, let me know, do you think Rihanna should release a pure RAP album
Rihanna: “Pon De Replay” (2005)
This is not a full rap song but listen “Come run run run run / Everybody move, run / Let me see you move, and / Rock it to the groove, done,” she hits the downbeat perfectly and flits in and out of the pocket without breaking stride.
Rihanna: “Hard” (Feat. Jeezy) (2009)
“Hard” has some real swagger. I just love the opening lines “They can say whatever, I’ma do whatever / No pain is forever / …Yup, you know this.”
Rihanna: “Raining Men” (Feat. Nicki Minaj
Now clearly Nicki Minaj is running the rap game on this one but RiRi does rap and entire verse,
Rihanna: “Pour It Up”
much like “Hard this is another rap sound more by texture and feel but still a great example
and when you can go check out Thew new Kendrick Lamar feat Rihanna “Loyalty” and then let me know your thoughts, Should Rihanna release a full on Rap album?
