Rihanna – Pour It Up Review
Rihanna is still at it after releasing her seventh CD ‘Unapologetic’ in 2012. ‘Pour It Up’ is the third single released from the album. Since its launch into urban radio, the song has been receiving a mix of favorable reviews from music critics. Some think it is a little off and odd compared to all other tracks in that album while others think it is simply a standout song.
It is actually a club song, notable for its minimal hip hop beat. The lyrics could be taken as symbolic. It declares independence, which can be somehow reflected with Rihanna’s current status. It also talks about life earning dollars at strip clubs, loudly bragging, and getting a little tipsy. One verse describes her gratitude for being able to shoulder $100 for a valet service in a night strip club.
To some other critics, the song is Rihanna’s way of pulling out trash talk. It can also be murky and moody while being irresistible at the same time. The track puts her in her usual element: seemingly narcotized and robotic. For now, all fans can still rave that she still has that unique charm that propelled her to stardom.
