I've always meant to start a topic like this but never got round to it so thought it was a good idea when I couldn't sleep at 5am ;o

We regard Umbrella, We Found Love et al as Rih's classics but what did y'all think of them when they first came out? Time to find out. (This was a bit of a learning exercise for me as I'd never seen about half of Buzzjack's 2007 posters before :'))

Umbrella (reaction immediately after it leaked):

OMFG SO ORIGINAL wub.gif

I have it if anyone has it, I think this could be her first #01. It deserves to be, its facking amazing, sounds like really NOTHING else out there, Jay Z really isn't needed which is probably my only problem but other than that it really is THE SEX SRSLY wub.gif

# YOU CAN STAND UNDER MY UMBRELLA EY EY EY EY # wub.gif

If you want, just ask.

YOU CAN STAND UNDER MY UMBRELLA EY EY EY EY love this too wub.gif
her 1st UK #1 and her 2nd US #1 on the way cheer.gif



QUOTE(spiker @ Mar 30 2007, 04:34 PM) *
Though it's quite different to her usual stuff it's fantastic!

I've got a no rap edit, it's just got Jay-Z saying 'uh-huh' at the start.



QUOTE(AnastaciaInspirated @ Mar 30 2007, 04:43 PM) *
I was just on a board *which will remain nameless* but they were hatin on this song...I actually like it. I think it will deffo be a hit...wonder what the vid will look lyk



QUOTE(Andrewy @ Mar 31 2007, 11:38 PM) *
Don't wish to be a hater, but I'm gutted sad.gif I loved all her last singles, and the album was okay, but I was expecting so much more sad.gif



QUOTE(Kelly @ Apr 1 2007, 04:25 AM) *
Amazing.

I pray for #1 on both sides of the Atlantic and all I can say is bring on Good Girl Gone Bad, judging from Umbrella it sounds very promising. wub.gif



QUOTE(Simon @ Apr 1 2007, 06:20 PM) *
Love it wub.gif any news when its out



QUOTE(-Tyron- @ Apr 2 2007, 01:08 AM) *
AMAZINGNESS wub.gif

I will murder various people if this is denied number one anywhere biggrin.gif



QUOTE(Josh @ Apr 2 2007, 08:04 PM) *
Fukin LOOOVE this! wub.gif



QUOTE(Andy. @ Apr 3 2007, 09:37 AM) *
Amazing tune!

Everyone seemed pretty sure it would be a hit, apart from someone who thought 'We Ride' was better than it 👀

We Found Love:

QUOTE(▲▲▲ @ Sep 22 2011, 02:17 PM) *
Euphoric!



QUOTE(Cremey @ Sep 22 2011, 02:17 PM) *
EEEEEEEEEEE.



QUOTE(Cremey @ Sep 22 2011, 02:19 PM) *
Yessss, this was exactly what I was hoping for it to be! Ahhhh incredible.
SHE CAN DO NO WRONG.



QUOTE(gooddelta @ Sep 22 2011, 02:20 PM) *
Sounds great on first listen, and really not at all like the 'usual' Calvin Harris sound either, he's become a lot more than the one trick pony his debut album suggested he would be!



QUOTE(troylovesmusic @ Sep 22 2011, 02:28 PM) *
Just Heard this on Kiss 100 WOw Rihanna actaully can do no wrong she just out with banger after nager defor number 1



QUOTE(Silver Rocket @ Sep 22 2011, 02:30 PM) *
Doesn't sound like anything amazing after the first listen, doesn't seem to go anywhere and the chorus is so repetitive, although some of the instrumental pieces are funky.



QUOTE(▲▲▲ @ Sep 22 2011, 02:32 PM) *
Definitely not what I expected and it's really more fluffy than I would have wanted. It's going to be stuck in my head all week though.



QUOTE(HeartRateRapid @ Sep 22 2011, 02:45 PM) *
For a lead single from an internationally successful popstar how can you really go much edgier than this?

I think it's risky, different and most importantly VERY GOOD on first listen. It strikes me as a grower. Great vox.



QUOTE(Rain @ Sep 22 2011, 02:48 PM) *
It's alright. I expected much better but this is very pedestrian.

Our very own Cremey stanning from the beginning *.* Not the most positive reception for what is often considered Rihanna's best song with Aly who's still a passing poster in this forum not being too fond of it!

Will be doing more of these in the next few weeks so watch this space ~

lol my reaction to 'We Found Love' was also pretty negative IIRC. I thought it was super generic.

I loved WFL at first I think but I've gone off it a fair bit, definitely her most overrated song as it's probably between lke 25-40 in her best songs for me oops. I remember being unsure of Umbrella at first, but I had an awful habit of hating songs at first then like 2 listens later deciding I loved them when I was younger laugh.gif

Take A Bow:

QUOTE(PoisonedHearts @ Mar 14 2008, 06:46 PM) *
It's Brilliant w00t.gif



QUOTE(Kimmy @ Mar 14 2008, 08:52 PM) *
I was soo shocked like ''What the heck are they doing, rushing another album in one f***ing year'' But now thank you, it's from a re-release (bad idea) but I absolutely love the song!



QUOTE(Ashley @ Mar 15 2008, 03:30 AM) *
Is there a chorus in there?

This is the most pointless re-release ever. Firstly, the album is doing fine. Secondly, there are still loads of potential singles on the album. Lastly, the song is rubbish. If you have an amazing song that needs to be put out there, fair enough, but this bag of w***?



QUOTE(MikalWikal @ Mar 15 2008, 04:08 PM) *
I'm not a fan of this AT ALL. Much better songs on the actual album sad.gif



QUOTE(Jim. @ Mar 15 2008, 08:58 PM) *
I don't like this.

Breakin' Dishes better be released before it dry.gif



QUOTE(Lukuzz @ Mar 16 2008, 01:52 PM) *
Really like it



QUOTE(On Your Shore @ Mar 16 2008, 11:28 PM) *
I really don't like this. A rerelease is ridiculous. I really hope they release Breakin' Dishes instead or in addition..something..



QUOTE(Johnjo07 @ Mar 17 2008, 12:37 AM) *
I dont get why people are hating on this song, its brill! wub.gif



QUOTE(Jack @ Mar 17 2008, 01:37 AM) *
I know, I love it!

I can kind of relate to it too which helps. happy.gif


A generally negative response to Rih's second UK #1 single 'Take A Bow' ohmy.gif Pray for Buzzjack ha 2008 taste sad.gif

'Take A Bow' wub.gif

In my top 3 RiRi tracks. It's so stunning. Can't believe it's 9 years old though <3

Diamonds:

QUOTE(Jonjo @ Sep 26 2012, 01:07 PM) *
I LOVE it (no surprises there)! It's quite different to the usual RiRi stuff we get, whilst not being too different. Very pleased with it. wub.gif



QUOTE(Conderella 2.0 @ Sep 26 2012, 01:08 PM) *
THIS IS SO INCREDIBLE I WANNA CRY.



QUOTE(✖ leww ✖ @ Sep 26 2012, 01:08 PM) *
OOH I WASN'T EXPECTING THAT

AT ALL

FAB.



QUOTE(AdamAloud @ Sep 26 2012, 01:11 PM) *
BRILLIANT. I love that she changes it up every album, surely another number 1 for RiRi?



QUOTE(Eyes @ Sep 26 2012, 01:12 PM) *
!!!

That's so good. What a way to cheer me up after a boring lecture.

Brb playing this to death.



QUOTE(Cremey @ Sep 26 2012, 01:15 PM) *
YESSS. Getting definite Sia vibes from it!

Loving it, I'm glad she didn't play it too 'safe' this time around!


QUOTE(Tyler @ Sep 26 2012, 03:37 PM) *
I always think it's stupid to rate a song that been out for a couple of hours, in comparison to songs that have been out for years.

I like that it's very different sounding. Her voice annoys me a bit in the chorus, I'm sure it will grow.



QUOTE(JosephRaeJepsen @ Sep 26 2012, 04:02 PM) *
That is really good! ohmy.gif Hoping the rest of the album will be up to the same quality as that. TTT wasn't anywhere near as good as WFL I thought.



QUOTE(Jhq @ Sep 26 2012, 04:34 PM) *
Not as amazing as some comments are making out. I actually find it a bit dull in places but I do love the 'shine bright like a diamond' hook.


QUOTE(Silver Rocket @ Oct 3 2012, 01:05 PM) *
It sounded really good at first, but it really drags on and on. I found myself bored by the end of the song.


Rih's best song getting a very positive reception from Buzzjack, with even known Diamonds hater Aly not being too negative on it! kink.gif

Russian Roulette:

QUOTE(RyanJL @ Oct 20 2009, 04:28 PM) *
Like the cover.

Song is meh. Very disappointed. 'The Wait Is Ova' clip thing sounded better lol.

QUOTE(Jonjo @ Oct 20 2009, 04:29 PM) *
Just premiered on Radio 1! mellow.gif WTF?!

They kept THAT quiet!



QUOTE(Cremey @ Oct 20 2009, 04:35 PM) *
It's much slower and more tame (?) than I thought it'd be.
I thought it'd be some sort of 'banger' from what I'd heard about it...

I still like it a lot. Don't know if it's a suitable comeback song though.



QUOTE(Rooney @ Oct 20 2009, 04:36 PM) *
It's $h!t.



QUOTE(Lukuzz @ Oct 20 2009, 04:37 PM) *
oOo its good, but not amazing, thought it would be fast!



QUOTE(Slowpoke @ Oct 20 2009, 04:45 PM) *
Letdown?! I hope it's a grower.



QUOTE(J-o-e @ Oct 20 2009, 04:45 PM) *
How boring, even Take A Bow was better than this.

Hahaha wow at those reactions. Also ughh at my first post about it.

It definitely seemed like a big risk for her at the time, definitely paid off though. Absolutely love it 😍

Love this idea for a thread btw Andrew, love reading people's first impressions haha.

Russian Roulette remains flawless. As does that whole era, tbh.
