Rihanna was a superstar in her own right, but the Chris Brown assault made her perhaps the most watched young woman on the planet. So when Rihanna drops a new single, and it’s off a mysterious upcoming album, and it was produced by Ne-Yo, and it’s accompanied by what can only be described as porn-esque photo, well, let’s just say I’m surprised the Internet didn’t explode today. Flashing lights aside, Russian Roulette is a sparse, dark track that explodes into a cinematic chorus, a task Rihanna doesn’t sound completely up to, especially without a memorable hook. In other words, Russian Roulette’s momentum alone will likely make it a hit, but I’m not convinced it’s actually that good of a track. By the way, I’ve got money that says her new album Rated R outsells Chris Brown’s next project, whatever that is. Revenge is a dish best served on the Billboard charts. Keep it locked to DJBooth for all the latest from the unbelievably famous Rihanna.
