JD's reveiw of ...
'Disturbia' - Rihanna
[This is a review of the video and song ;3]
Obviously I'm going to be professional about this, even though I totally love Rihanna to the max...
Obviously the title brought speculation, since Rihanna was Romantically linked to Shia Labarf, who starred in the Movie 'Disturbia', but she dumped him to be with me.
The lyrics are a little weird to some, but to some it attracts them to the song. Some people think it's Rihanna's way of telling people that she can reinvent herself in anyway she wants, a link to the lyrics are at the bottom of the review. ;]
Too many Rihanna's voice is soothing, fun, and nice. She's still got a great voice in this, but she's taken a new turn. Her voice is darker and sharper, still great, just different, Of course her voice is the main attraction.
The actual Music itself is really just a beat, dum dum dum xD, and clapping, you know not really big, it's great, but I think people will come to like this song because of her voice and lyrics.
This video is such a step out from what she usual does, it's not that hard to see, it's much weirder, in the best way possible!
Right off the bat you see some weird stuff, but it grabs your attention. The Video is set in what seems to be a demented Carnival or something, don't hold me to it, It's kinda hard to tell. Rihanna just looks dark and sexy at the beginning. With the piano playing, though the guy with an eye patch might distract you!
Rihanna's got it, and she flaunts it in the video, she wears some tiny stuff, has spiders crawling all over her, dances in a cage, you know, the usual! I mean this is one of her more sexual videos! You'll see some reasons why I love her in this video!
Rihanna usually does dancing in her videos, in this one it's the same, though she also does some weird stuff. Using the fast forward effect a lot in this video. She does do some great dancing in this though. She's really good, I must say comparing this to her dancing in 'Umbrella', this song wins by a mile!
How the public might take this video
As I said before Rihanna took a huge step out of her comfort zone doing this, it's really crazy and dark, the song is doing very well now, topping the charts, but I don't think this video will make it in many video countdowns, it's a little scary, and it's not like the girls at TRL are gonna be obsessed with this video! I think it will do well though, most people will recognize Rihanna to be great, like Madonna, she can change her style anytime or way she wants! I might even listen to Country if Rihanna came out with a Country album!
I love this song, it proves how much Rihanna can do, I don't think many people understand, Rihanna is only on her third album, and so far all these songs have reached top ten status, most top five, two of them number one!
Shut Up And Drive
Hate That I Love You
Take A Bow
If I Never See Your Face Again
Please Don't stop The Music
songs from one
album, it's crazy!
This song is so great, I mean Rihanna has so many styles, I know many people will be listening to this for a long time!
***** Five stars, that's pretty high, she deserves every one of them!
