Rihanna Underwhelms With New "Comeback" Single!

| Filed under: Rihanna


Wow. We are shocked and saddened at what a dud RiRi's new song is!

We LOVE Rihanna, but we are very disappointed. Sure, she didn't write or produce the song. That blame goes to NeYo.

But RiRi did approve of this and (along with her label) chose it as her first single.

What was she thinking?????????

Russian Roulette sounds like a song Beyonce would have passed on because it's not good enough. This would have been a B-side on Rihanna's last album!

It's not a bad song, but it's definitely mediocre. And it's definitely not a first single on one of the most anticipated songs of the year!

The song and production are both seriously lacking!

What do U think????

Listen to the song below!

Do U like Rihanna's new single, Russian Roulette?

    Its very awkward to listen to… too slow.

  2. 2


  3. 3

    OMG she looks like a transvestite dominatrix!

    She's really a beautiful girl but…geez

  4. 4


  5. 5

    …"Tardy For The Party" is better.

  6. 6

    first rihannas sexxxi

  7. 7

    for once I agree with you - borrrriiiiinnngggg

  8. 8

    rihanna sucks and she can't sing so this is no suprise

  9. 9

    oh my gatos… its not what i would except… not from RiRi.

  10. 10

    do NOT blame Ne-yo for this shiz. She chose to do it too. She's trying to be darker.

  11. 11

    good. throw her on the trashheap. she's done.
    nobody has any respect for this stupid bitch. she loves being a punching bag. we don't need stupid broads like her cluttering up the landscape.
    at least your precious lady gaga doesn't condone violence toward women.

    I love it. It sounds like a throwback from old school Aaliyah. Its not a dance song but it has substance and heart

  13. Benf says – reply to this


    wow that's such a disappointment. this is much too slow! don't like it.

  14. 14

    AS AN ACTUAL PRODUCER - I think your an idiot. This song is more of a story, very mellow and production value - u know nothing! This is very well produced. Not over produced. All you want is your gay club vibes. I effin dislike you so much perez. Good job RiRi!

  15. 15

    it's just OK. sounds like something we've heard before.

  16. 16

    first! lov it

  17. 17

    I could see it getting remixed radio play. snap

  18. 18

    it's ok. not amazing at all. LADY GAGA new BAD ROMANCE is killer and a much better track. i bet GAGA will murder her next month when both their albums drop on the same day….

  19. 19

    This bitch is so lame it unreal.. "Riri".. Fall back..

  20. 20

    It's kind of gothic. I don't think it's that bad, actually.

  21. 21

    Not bad.

  22. 22

    Don't have much opinion on the song, but that outfit is super duper uber trashy.

  23. nizzy says – reply to this


    wow this is bland. boring. not a #1

  24. 24

    I like it. It's growing on me.

  25. 25

    This is a great song… I can't wait for the video that corresponds with it.

  26. 26

    I like it better than other stuff she's done. It's simple and shows off her voice.

  27. 27

    Hate it.

  28. 28

    I like it! Not a first single though… at all.

  29. 29

    i quite like it. it's not typically catchy but I think it's quite original.

  30. 30

    I mean chris browns shit sounded much better, Rihanna will never write her on songs… But Perez you took the words outta my mouth it does so like a song Beyonce passed on… WOMP WOMP RIHANNA u should know how the music game works by now… She will soon be are black lindsay lohan

  31. 31

    CRAP I couldn't even get thru it. She's really been trying to hard lately with the look and image. She's not the cute girl anymore, more like a wannabe Lady GaGa. Sad.

  32. 32

    It was alright… I guess. You'd think with her new "lease on life" she would do something more interesting. I didn't love it.. but I didn't hate it either. Am I first?

  33. 33

    it's a great song minus the intro and the end… what's up with the gun shot? lame.

  34. 34

    That barely sounds like her in the beginning…

  35. YUCK says – reply to this


    its great I love it and btw beyonce wouldnt know a good song if it feel down the stage with her.

  36. 36

    I'm so sick of this girl.

  37. 37

    it is VERY lame… I was expected a hit…. but we got this garbage…

  38. 38

    I couldn't even listen to the entire thing. It is terrible

  39. 39

    it's beautiful

  40. 40

    wow…waay too slow. a remix could possibly be good though?

  41. 41

    I like it.

    Waaay better than GaGas "Bad Romance" shit!

  42. Laury says – reply to this


    Well, it's definitely no Umbrella. It's not a bad song, but it's not catchy enough to be a single. It's way too downtempo. She sounds great though.

  43. 43

    I think she should have started out with a more upbeat single. It doesn't suck but it has no wow factor.

  44. 44


  45. YUCK says – reply to this


    in three months this song will be at the top of the charts. I find it so comical that this pig vomit bitch thinks he has so much influence when he is just an industry clown.

  46. 46

    it's definitely just okay…that's disappointing.

  47. 47


  48. 48

    i agree that this may not be the best first single. competition is tough out there for radio time now. but it is a good song. i expect more from Rihanna. as i do from GaGa as well. have to say i was disappointed with her newest single as well. she didn't really challenger herself musically or lyrically with that one…considering she's a "true artist" and all. ha.

  49. 49

    its okay but not what i was expecting

  50. 50

    i wish it was more upbeat like disturbia or umbrella

  51. 51

    Youch even that first note.

  52. 52

    People should seriously just do porn. I mean, CHRIST.

  53. 53

    woah this is terrible

  54. Paty says – reply to this


    Her voice sounds good….but…the beat just does not sound like her at all. I was expecting something upbeat to go crazy while listening to…

    For SURE the cover DOES NOT match the type of song.

  55. 55

    i love it!!

  56. 56

    I think she sounds great! The song is not terrible and I'm so glad I'm not easily influenced by your words like some other people that can't make decisions for themselves.

  57. 57

    If Internet cockroach Perez doesn't like it, then it is sure to be a hit. After all, he felt the same way about the BEP "I Gotta Feelin" which then went on to lead BEP to an all-time record stint at the #1 position on Billboard 100.

  58. 58

    Re: willalove – that's very true… lady gaga is going to sell wayyyyy more albums than rihanna…. but Jay Sean's (

  59. 59



  60. 60

    I like it! But it belongs to a more serious singer. And I will not use that sleeve, the outfit is horrifying. and not in a good way.

  61. 61

    Ok, I fucking love it >_> this song is gonna be a hit.
    but her hair is really bad in the video. Like REEALLLY ugly.

  62. 62

    Whatever can't wait for the "3" and "Bad Romance" vids!

  63. 63

    its a good song.. didnt expect an up tempo song since she's in a dark mood..lyrically a good track, nice beat and she definitely proved she can sing.. perez was waiting for a club song or a song similar to that of lady gaga..but this is rihanna..not gaga and not beyonce.. she's doing great being who she is

  64. 64

    its not terrible…..its not great……but it certainly isn't terrible

  65. Laura says – reply to this


    What is she tied up like that? Are those chains and barb wires? I don't get it, as a feminist, I don't like that picture, and as a black girl, she shouldn't either.

  66. 66

    It's a good song, maybe not for a fist single.

  67. 67

    i love rihanna but its shocking this would be a choice for her FIRST single

  68. 68

    She is trying sooooooo hard in her look to be "edgy"… fail.

  69. 69

    Well, after seeing that picture I forgot all about the song and just pictured her naked. Until I heard a gunshot from it.. So now she's dead..and still naked.

  70. 70

    no one ever lives up to their hype in the end….she's just another pretty face in erotic outfits….interchangable in the end….

  71. 71

    Agreed. It's like definitely drags a bit. Her voice doesn't carry that kind of song well. I want a fierce danceable jam… Breaking Dishes 2009 perhaps?

  72. 72

    neyo did not write this man….thats unbeleivable.

  73. 73

    It barely sounds like her at the beginning. It's not good, at all.

  74. 74

    It sounds like they were trying to go the Kanye route and use a beat that's really simple…except this song doesn't have the same energy that Kanye's songs do.

  75. 75

    Jesus! So much buzz for this shit! Only anorexic girls will have fun with this! Ri Ri is over!!!!

  76. 76

    It sounds like she just got beat up… too dramatic. I like it but not the club banger i was hoping.

  77. 77

    that is a beautiful song. she sounds AMAZING…and looks even better. I love the whole tied up in rope thing. love Rih Rih…can't wait for the album.

  78. 78

    It leaves you with a very honest WTF and WHAT IN HELL WAS SHE THINKING? I cant say I hate it, but I dont think is a grower

  79. 79

    Lets just put it this way…. that song does not make me want to buy the album.

  80. 80


  81. 81

    I absolutely love it. Late 80s James Bond/Lethal Weapon vibe to it. I think it was chosen because of what she's been through and the meaning of the words. Her second single will be a kiss-ass dance number, you watch. Give it a chance though - it's awesome!

  82. 82

    What is all this "comeback" talk? The girl's last cd was a massive hit, so this isn't a comeback it's just her next cd.

  83. 83

    It's alright but it's something us french would call Emo RnB she has just changed sound thats all

  84. 84

    i like it it's not gay poke me in the booty boy music like gaga

  85. 85

    i Don't like this, At all.

  86. 86

    forget the song look at the trashy cover of her eeww nasty biatch.

  87. 87

    when she gets a vocal coach and doesn't sound like drowning pig…..maybe i'll listen. oh and that album cover (or whatever it is) is terribly trashy…….

  88. 88

    Re: karencarpenter – lol true.

  89. 89


  90. 90

    What's up with the pirate theme and denomitx what ever I am sick n tired of her sorry ass

  91. 91

    I Like it!

  92. 92

    It SUCKS!!!
    She looks ugly, what happened to her!?
    She used to be cute and stylish. Now she trying to hard to upstage Lady Gaga!
    It's sad.

  93. 93

    I was listening while scrolling down and got distracted by the new New Moon trailer.
    I still give it a thumbs down is something like Twilight makes me wanna shut the song off!

  94. 94


  95. 95

    I bet this will be popular overseas.

  96. 96

    it was ALRIGHT… for a single though, what the hell? it would be okay on her cd, but definitely not as a single. they need to remix it or something.

  97. 97

    I agree with KalKal, it's too slow =/ It just doesn't sound like a Rihanna song. I voted so-so, and that was with doubt.

  98. 98

    It's an ok song but definitely not for her 1st single off the new album.

  99. 99

    The message sounds like she has not even begun to recover from her relationship with Chris Brown. Off all the songs she could have picked from - such a dark one …… very sad that her and her staff missed a great opportunity to show a stronger women instead of a weak one without any control over her life as the song depicts.

  100. 100

    I like it but it's not edgy enough
