It is 10 years since 'Hard' came out which featured rapper with the sore throat, Young Jeezy.







This just missing out on the Top 40 at #42 thanks to downloads and the music video effect.


What do you make of this now?

I love this so much. But 'Rated R' only has like 3 tracks I don't really go back to, unless I listen to the album in it's entirety. The production on this is amazing and her attitude/vocal delivery in this is sharp and "hard". Such a great song!

I'll grant you that will.i.am's part is horrible but I love the rest of it. heart.gif It's so melancholic and moody. Like the lyrics are sad but Rih just delivers them in such an apathetic way. laugh.gif

She was right when she said that Rihanna reign just wont let up in this song. Rih is only getting bigger and bigger as an individual. A true pop icon and a future legend.

Loved Hard when it came out, the song and video captures her fearlessness as an artist perfectly.

For me this should have been a single.


It was a single, just really late into the campaign and that's why it couldn't beat its initial #42 peak in the second part of its chart run.

Great song, I didn't really like it initially but it's held up well 10 years on.

It was pushed as a single in August wasn't it? My mistake. Got playlisted by Radio 1.

I love Hard wub.gif

And the visual too. It did deserve better than the peak it got but I think within the fanbase / navy its generally well received.

Rated R really was that era for me! So striking visually and sonically so different and mature to everything shed done previously to that.
