Rihanna the Voice – I Don’t Like You
Whether you like her or not, there are many people that consider Rihanna the Voice to be one of the most important artists of this generation. The singer is a major influence on many other artists, especially Madonna. Her music videos have been compared to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. She has also released a charity cover version of “Redemption Song.”
Madonna as her biggest influence
Throughout her career, Madonna has been a driving force for women in the pop music industry. She has also become a pop icon, a cultural icon and a gay icon.
Madonna’s contribution to music has influenced hundreds of artists around the world. Her songs have sold over 300 million copies worldwide. She is the best-selling female recording artist of all time. And she has a book of her own called Sex.
Madonna’s style has been described as “Beatlesque”. She is an actress and dancer, and has been a prominent figure in popular culture since 1983. She was the first female to take charge of her sexuality in the MTV era.
She has a reputation for being outrageously bold, and her fashion choices have always been out of this world. She is also a very influential figure on social media. She has been called one of the most followed people in the world. She has been credited with creating a vision board for Hollywood.
Her hit song almost wasn’t hers
During her early career, Rihanna received a few scraps of songs from bigger artists. The song she eventually released was called “Pon De Replay”. It was one of her first major hits and was released when she was seventeen years old. It went triple platinum.
The song was written for Chris Brown. It was originally going to be a duet with Rihanna. However, a news report of an assault against Brown led producers to scrap the song. Def Jam Records purchased the song for Rihanna.
The song had no verse and was written with a different rhythmic and melodic style than what Rihanna’s vocals are known for. It was also disjointed and not well-written.
Rihanna’s team tried to bait fans with hints of the song for four years. They even teamed up with Samsung for shameless corporate tie-ins. However, they failed to follow up on the announcement of a world tour. The song didn’t make the album.
Her charity cover version of “Redemption Song”
Several days ago, Rihanna made a cover version of Bob Marley’s Redemption Song to help raise money for the people of Haiti. The video shows Rihanna asking for advice and then seeing her decision come from God. The song is about getting out of mental slavery and finding freedom.
The song has been covered by many artists, including Joe Strummer, Johnny Cash and Stevie Wonder. It’s also been performed by New Zealand reggae band Katchafire. An Ethiopian-American neo-soul artist Wayna also recorded the song on her 2004 album.
According to Rolling Stone, the Redemption Song is one of the five hundred best songs of all time. It’s also been ranked among the top ten political songs of the 21st century by the New Statesman.
Bob Marley recorded the Redemption Song with The Wailers in 1980. The track is an acoustic ballad that is about gaining inner freedom. Marley borrowed the phrase “redemption” from black rights activist Marcus Garvey.
Her music videos have been compared to Michael Jackson’s Thriller
Whether you’re an artist trying to make your mark or a consumer, there are few music videos in history that have attracted as much attention and controversy as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Thriller launched the dance craze, and has proven a hit in vinyl and VHS. The film’s success made it one of the most influential pop videos of all time.
When Thriller arrived in the spring of 1982, it shot up the charts. The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, a position it held for three weeks. The video was released on VHS, and it’s still in circulation today.
The video spawned a “making of” documentary genre. It included mountains of makeup and behind-the-scenes footage, packaged together in VHS form. It also won two American Music Awards.
Thriller paved the way for African American artists to make music videos, and broke down racial barriers on MTV. It became the first music video to be inducted into the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry.
