Thanks for the song. I've never heard it until now.
On the subject of Riri's "S&M," I wonder if she is being sincere or just out for the shock value. The video was fun to watch even though it seemed like someone with a really bad case of A.D.D. directed it. Just as my eyes recognized what I was looking at and my mind was just beginning to appreciate what my eyes were seeing, the scene jumps to another cut and then another and all the crazy colours...it was gaudy and trying just a little too hard to be edgy.
The lyrics of the song are very cute, I particularly like "sticks and stones may break my bones but whips and chains excite me"
its very fun to deliver this line at just the right moment
I also like "I may be bad but I'm perfectly good at it" mostly because it reminds me of Jessica Rabbit and her quote "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way" :3
Overall, I was not impressed with Rihana's new song. I listen to a lot more explicit electronic and metal songs (eg Lords of Acid) to even bat and eye at this song despite its in your face "S&M" title. A 3 out of 5 at best
