Behind the scenes of the new Rihanna song "Only Girl (In The World)"

This is what probably went down during a meeting between Rihanna and her record company a few months ago.

- Ri, you screwed us with your last album. It was too dark. It flopped.
- Yeah, Boss, but I had just been beaten up by that motherf*cker Brown. My music had to convey my state of mind.
- Don't care, ho. You're here to make some cash. We're lucky you had that dull song Rude Boy to save the thing a bit.
- Uh it sucked.
- So. That "Don't Stop The Music" track of yours was a hit back in the day, right?
- Yeah, I guess so.
- Who did it ? These Stargate guys, right?
- Yeah, I guess so.
- Ok, so we're sending you over to Sweden tomorrow. Try and make something dancey. No more boring dark stuff.
- But, boss, I'M-A-SERIOUS-ARTIST-NOW !!! *cries*
- Shut up and pack.
Ok, it probably didn't go exactly like that, but you get the idea. So unsurprisingly, the Rihanna-puppet new single is a BIG dance-pop track that has far better verses than chorus. It will do well, but I bet we'll all be over it in a week. Yep, it's that anoyingly catchy.
