Russian Roulette Is Not The Same Without A Gun

Rihanna can do so much with what is quite a technically limited voice - the fact that she grapples with it instead of fulfilling the criterea of singing a Celine ballad really shows up the so-called talent contests on TV as their formats completely miss out on the capabilities of singers like Rihanna. This is a good appetizer, as why blow your load with the Disturbia-esque songs we are all expecting first? It is not amazing, but the silent warfare of her earie verses convey much more than contemporaries such as Britney seem brave enough to challenge themselves to achieve these days. On the other hand, it's a ballad dressed up in makeshift goth stylings - but one thing is certain, Rihanna won't disappoint us with the video.
