‘OH NA NA, WHAT’S MY NAME’ – that line has been stuck in my head for the past two days now. Thanks to Rihanna’s latest smash single, ‘What’s My Name’ off from her much anticipated LP, ‘Loud’ out November. The new track co-written and produced by hit factory Stargate is expected to be making impact as to precede the release of her album.
‘What’s My Name’ blurts out every bit of swag glittering all over the entire track. There’s so much hip-hop going on but it didn’t blur out that Rihanna’s an R&B singer and with the help of Drake’s rapping abilities- it sort of balanced everything just right in the box. The production is amazing and didn’t mind Rihanna showing off some of her finest vocal chops towards the bridge there. ‘What’s My Name?’ seems to be another one of her effortless hits in the making.
This ladies and gents puts Rihanna back where she belongs – not in those creepy leather knickers she has been wearing over the ‘Rated R’ era.
