You usually won’t find me too in touch with the Top 40 hits of the day (or the Hot 100 on Billboard), but Rihanna pulled me right in to this video. I could do without Jay-Z’s bantering at the beginning, but that’s what you get these days. Wherever you look on the charts, you get the obligatory Artist Name featuring currently hot hip-hop star. A quick scan of the Hot 100 shows:
- T-Pain Feat. Yung Joc
- T-Pain feat. Akon
- Bone Thugs-N-Harmony feat. Akon
- Gwen Stefani feat. Akon
- Fergie feat. Ludacris
- Fabolous feat. Ne-Yo
- D.J. Khaled feat. T.I., Akon, Rick Ross, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, and Baby
- and a lot more
Maybe I’m old and grumpy, but that pisses me off (for no particular reason). And that Akon, what a class act he is.
But back to Rihanna. I genuinely like this song. What’s not to like about a hot 19 year old from Barbados. *slap* Snap out of it Pete.
To quote the great Borat: “Wa wa woo wah!”
