Rihanna & Calvin Harris Have Indeed "Found Love"

For nearly as long as I can remember, I've been an aficionado of any and all things Pop Culture: music, fashion, cinema, comic books, food, art, travel, etc. Rihanna has without a doubt been a Pop Culture mainstay since first assaulting the Billboard charts with "Pon de Replay" (2005). Since then, the Barbadian [Bajan] beauty has somehow managed to record and release 5 studio albums, 25 solo singles, and countless chart-topping features. A few of my personal favourites include:"Shut Up and Drive," "Disturbia," "Man Down," "Hard" and "Live Your Life." Gradually evolving and growing with each collection, Rihanna is now a mature Hard Rocking club hopper; She has surely seen her fair share of adversity, but always manages to prevail!

With "We Found Love," Rihanna bravely explores the previously untouched genre destinations of Electro-House and Dance-Pop. The simple, Calvin Harris-produced tune is a happy-go-lucky Dance composition... mildly reminiscent of "Who's That Chick?" "We Found Love"'s companion music video chronicles a slightly more dangerous, (w)reckless [love] affair between Rihanna and Dudley O'Shaughnessy. Beauty & The Beast Punk Rocker then proceed to indulge in a night of make-out sessions, BMX/skateboarding, fast food, dabbling in various drugs, dancing 'til sunrise, grocery shopping, drag-races, gambling, bath tubs, etc. Overall, it really is an enjoyable love/hate, Pop Culture referencing assembly of footage. Rihanna's upcoming 6th studio album, Talk That Talk will see a Nov. 18th release... just in time for the 2010-11 Holiday Season!
