Rihanna Releases "Bi**h Better Have My Money"/ Many Critcs Compare Track To Beyonce's "7/11"
After announcing her second single from R8, Rihanna has finally released the much-anticpated single, "Bi**h Better Have My Money." As I said yesterday, the title alone speaks for itself, so like many, I was expecting some type of ratchet club banger, but I did still have different expectations, toward what I was anticpated.
With Rihanna recently revealing, wanting to release timeless music, I did expect much of an improvement from Rihanna, but I think many can agree the R8 era, has definitely went downhill. In what world, would you imagine FourFiveSeconds and "Bi**h Better Have My Money" on the same album, and as always, Rihanna's fans are hyping up the concept of the single. It's definitely an experimental approach for Rihanna, and it really throws away, Rihanna's praise, recently.
Rihanna hasn't exactly been on her A-Game vocally, but we can agree, there's much improvement towards it. This track, is definitely not a mixture of "Pour It Up" and "7/11" as many critics have described. I can defintiely see how the similarities come along, as the track is a ratchet club banger, but I was more focused towards the song lyrically.
I mean, who could Rihanna be talking about? Sure, this could be all fun and games, but was there some type of storyline behind the track? It could very well, be Rihanna just talking, so I'm on both sides toward this track. I think I can agree, that I'm definitely not as excited about R8 as I was earlier, and I think we can say, this era has been full of jokes. I'm just waiting for Rihanna to announce that this was all a joke, and plan the actual R8. Those snippets give me hope though, especially the "Higher" snippet.
Also, the fact that this track is a club banger doesn't ruin the expectations of the track, but the fact that she announced she was making timeless music, right before releasing this. Like, this track can get old really quick, and I'm already on the 2nd listen. Also, just now, I begin to think of "Bow Down (I Been On)." I mean, I'm sure many of you remember the backlash towards "Bow Down (I Been On)." Many felt as if Beyonce was talking towards herself, but Beyonce adressed that this was a song, for others to feel good about themselves. I could see the same concept towards "Bi**h Better Have My Money." It could be a anthem for some, and along the way, it may be an anthem for me, but for now, it's a no, and it's not worth my coins. The album might be though.. #R8
