Fail: that's sounds horribly

Fail: that's sounds horribly off. And its not because of RiRi's voice(an acquired sound) but its because it sounds a mess together. The track would have been better with something as the hook!!!

I didnt listen to it as of

I didnt listen to it as of yet b/c her voice is annoying. Everytime she try to sing she sounds like she is whining. Another thing just b/c someone doesnt like someone or something doesn't mean they are a hater. Shit I don't like sushi does that makes me a hater. . . .

MOVING ON...:

MOVING ON...: Ugh….why!OnOct 14, 2009 at 7:54 pm | Reply |JK: I actually liked the song. It had a cool tempo. Rihanna is no worse than Madonna, who can not sing but is still selling out world tours. I really just don’t understand if people hate this girl so much why take the time to go into any post containing her name or a pic of her. For example for the dummies, I don’t like Beyonce so I skip right over those posts. The only posts I would be intrested in for B would be a premature death or she actually acted like a human being for once and not a damn robot.Madonna can’t sing, but she is a good performer. She can put on a good show. Her music has substance (well it used to). WHen Rihanna hits the stage she is boring as hell. She doesn’t even move she just stands there looking pretty and screaching.Plus Madonna is self invented Diva. She has evolved over the years but she remains true to her self and her craft. It doesn’t seem forced. She didn’t have to change up her style numerous times to appeal to the masses! If you recall when Rihanna first hit the scene she was a raegae artist rocking baggy pants and sequin tops along with lace fronts. She flopped big time!Her music only appeal to the urba demograhic. So her label, sexed her up and changed her music and whole style to appeal to the masses (white folks). She sold out and never really improved as a performer at all. She is mostly know for being so pretty and that is the main reason why she has gotten so much success! This industry is so fickle and ‘imahge’ obsessed. Rihanna is just pretty a talentless gimmick! Nothing more, nothing less!Quote^^APPLAUSE….WELL SAID! hold up 50% are pretty and talentless gimmicks and just because....... but then again your putting out an opinion and believe it or not plenty of people love Rihanna's singing but she is from the island whats others excuse

Wow everyone keeps talking

Wow everyone keeps talking about what Rihanna is not but yet she is still around doing it big.... like what or who you like but your opinion will not change anything
look a again's picture

Please Madonna did not change

Please Madonna did not change her image? Really do you pay attention to pop culture. Madonna is known as the queen of reinvention as is Rihanna. Madonna has changed her look from her days of Lucky Star, to Just Like a prayer, to secrets, to ray of light, and now the sticky sweet candy tour. Get with pop knowledge before you try and make a comment back to me. Good Day.

all of the many lies out of

all of the many lies out of these ear plug wearing people are the same lies that they have tried to make stick to others also and these peoplke are making money and doing their own thing and would not even bother to waste their spit on these grave diggers and dust bowlers that do not know sh!! from shineola. soon a lot of them will be smoked up and drunks and in the many welfare lines around many different cities looking for a hand out. theres a lot og them thats from pay day to pay day already and all they know is to try and kill peoples spirts down, let them pass judgement after the numbers come out from sales. even though we all know that they do not want to give you any credit for the many accomplishments that you have already won just let them awards keep adding up one brick at a time as obama often says.

rihanna if my memories serves

rihanna if my memories serves me right they talked about you like a dogg on the run this town song and you put a big dose of whip ass on that song and as all of the people who can't stand your voice they had better load up on ear plugs because i heard it through the grape vine that rihanna was getting ready to blow through like a big bad storm packing winds up to three hundred miles per hour. and its okay if you can't sing rihanna because you never told no one that you could sing. but i think that people needs to know that you have got tons and tons of determination and that is all that you will need with your love of the art you will be a winner with or without people who are evil , nasety, and jealous, three of the big three tht will drive all if the bad mouths sick and drive them all the way crazy out of their minds while you are making that paper.you go rihanna good morning america, x-factor and the fact that all of the big names in music loves working with you, and a lot of the lies that has been told on you as far as sleeping with this one and that one has been debunked and proven to be nothing but a lot of over cooked lies.

yep madonna and britney like

yep madonna and britney like rihanna has been talked about like they are doggs, but through it all madonna is the baddest of the baddest and britney fell down but she has lifted herself back up and shes back in the race and all rihanna has to do is like kandis burris sings rise above the haters. and rihanna needs to just keep on sailing along and let the haters be her motivators to lift her right on up to where she wants to be.

ok jane doe, get a grip its

ok jane doe, get a grip its just a song, and my comment is no differnt that what my mamma or anyone elses would say LOL if he delivered the lyrics with some passion and true delivery instead of just readin it off the paper it would mean something and it doesnst help that the beat is overpowering his vocals, it sounds rushed, unmixed and unmoving but the camp was prolly so thirsty to get a buzz, they threw rihanna on it and ran to the blogs

Living the life: rihanna

Living the life: rihanna isnt really on the track the chours is from her song question existing either way like it good look wale Thank YOU, i knew i heard that hook before!

You sounded like a hater off

You sounded like a hater off rip talkin bout somebody you dnt know... learn how to pronounce the man name first and turn on a radio or tv to see who he is loser.. and this doesnt sound like the rest of the songs and hes not rambling if u listen to the lyrics and not go off producion and catchy choruses only like everybody else u would understand hip hop... Jaz: james, excuse me for living in the US of A and not nowing African names, that dont mean I need to go to school, they should have come up with a different name to market him, no matter what I say the song is wack and thrown together
jane doe's picture

um i doubt this is how the

um i doubt this is how the song is supposed to sound like. Rhianna's hook came from off her last album or was it the album before that? Anyway the song is called "Question Existing". somebody prolly put this together on youtube

The Leona Lewis incident was

The Leona Lewis incident was just crazy and sad to hear. For someone to punch her in her face at a book signing was just crazy to hear and I hope dude at least a year in jail for assault. That young girl did not deserve that. Fans are ridiculous and for some reason cannot separate artist and from their work. They're real people and yet people wish harm on them, physically attack them then say it's the price of fame. I don't care how much money, fame or power a person has, it doesn't give anyone the right to physically harm them. People need to get a life.

I kinda like the song. A

I kinda like the song. A little As for Leona...girl fire your security team ASAP. Who was her security? Some kids? Do u really think, had that been Mariah or Beyonce, someone would even have the slightest chance to LEAP LEAAPPPPP over a table!!?? Hell no. I feel so bad for her though. That was not a STAN Ans SMDH at people on here talking about they would only be interested in a Beyonce post if it was her premature death! WTF??
NO HATE!!!'s picture

You can't really compare

You can't really compare Rihanna to Ashanti because she's actually made some songs with rappers hot. I never was a T.I fan but that "Live your life" song made notice both of them. I don't have either of their records but she's had some nice songs on the radio and she's had some of her songs own songs that were cool. She has good writing and production that a lot of Ashanti records didn't have. Plus her handlers handle her career differently.

Right now, I'm just

Right now, I'm just over-saturated with Princess of Roc, Rihanna. It's literally seeping through my pours. I can't breath. I hope she disappears for a while before her new album, so that Rih Rih can at least allow us to appreciate her properly! Critique: The track sounds like a cat is in pain and is in desperate need of help. Message to Walé: choose Estelle next time.. P.S Please correct me if I'm wrong but Rihanna's stylist is far from original! Ermm, Grace Jones springs to mind... Talk about a terrible rehash! If you call that being original, please youtube Grace Jones and then you'll know what I'm talking about.

Like Wale, but don't like the

Like Wale, but don't like the song. Rihanna's vocals were just so random to me! They didn't go with the song. It just sounds weird. I think Wale must have had pressure from Jay since he is signed to Roc Nation to put Rihanna on this track, cause their is really no reason to have her vocals on there! Wale could have gotten a talented singer to sing a differnt hook instead of some of Rihanna's recycled vocals. IMO. I pass on this ish!

It's a sample of her voice

It's a sample of her voice from her 3rd album...Wale is just using it for the hook...Get off Ri's Pus..y already..DAMN!!!!

DD: LOL at no one liking

DD: LOL at no one liking her but they took the time out to click on a post with her name attached. It's not that we don't like HER, we don't like her VOICE. As you can clearly see, this post was about 'music', not HER. The artist known as Wale feat. Princess Forehead. We were asked "Do You Love It?" In order to determine if we 'loved' it or not, we had to actaully click on it and listen to it. So we were forced to endure that god awful and atrocious voice of hers to see if we like the song. Clearly, most people didn't cause Princess Forehead ruined it with her random vocals thrown in the mix! It's not personal hate towards HER, it's hate that her VOICE ruined a song by a talented artist like Wale!

Wale is the ish, but this

Wale is the ish, but this song is wack! Rihann's vocals just don't fit in with the song. It just sounds a mess! Sorry Wale, try again! Why do people call her the princess of the ROC? Just cause she is affiliated with Jay? She is not even signed to the ROC, she is with Def Jam! Maybe people should call her Princess of Def Jam, cause Jay sure as hell must have been 'Def' when he signed her non-signing ass! I like to call her Alien Princess Rih Rih for the Planet Forehead myself. But that's just me! Lol!

annie (: beyoncéstan4life: i think people are only putting Rihanna on their songs just cuz they think that it’ll make their songs chart… WRONG! this song is terrible and so is she.and can u stans quit using the word “hater”. it’s so effing ridiculous… let that shit go, seriously. not everyone who doesn’t like Rihanna or her voice is a “hater”. god, shut the hell up. I agree. Maybe he thought that having Rihanna on the song would make it chart better, cause I don't think any of his songs have done well on the charts. But this sucks! It doesn't even blend well! It sounds weird as hell like her vocals were added in at the last minute! Rih's voice just doesn't do it for me! She is just good for looking pretty, but singing is not her forte! Sorry Stans, just stating my opinion.
Not a HATER, I speak the TRUTH!'s picture

Whoever: I like it, it

Whoever: I like it, it would be better w/o Riri though. It seem like someone just threw her chorus line from question existing on it and the beats are clashing b/c of it. I know right. It doesn't make since! It doesn't even go with the beat. It's just sounds like that threw her vocals in anywhere! I Wale, but this ish sounds weird to me!

Rihanna's snippets are from a

Rihanna's snippets are from a GGGB song "Question Existing". I wonder who made the decision to pair his rap with this sample when the two songs are about different things? It doesn't sound good, but no one cares because the pairing ensures this will be all over urban radio anyway.

@Jaz...you are not cultured

@Jaz...you are not cultured at all and you probably don't even know your roots..smfh. His name is Wale because it is a shortened form of his full name Olubowale, which is a nigerian name. Start reading books and stay in school, because your comment shows you lack both.
