Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

SINGLE REVIEW! Rihanna: 'Where Have You Been'
Rihanna's new smash single Where Have You Been, which is on
her latest album 'Talk that talk' is a summer track. Fresh and dance-able. Over
a cantering electro beat, she belts out her desire to find a man who can
satisfy her, ahem, animalistic needs, calling: "Where have you been all my
li-i-i-i-i-fe" over a strobing trance section that ends in a
synth-squelching breakdown. Like Rihanna herself, it's hectic, confident and
unashamedly sexual. Like on most Calvin Harris productions, "Where Have
You Been" may sound a bit underwhelming and simplistic at first. However,
you will soon realize how easily the song's hook worms its way into your
consciousness. The two building choruses that lead into a dub-step influenced breakdown
are exhilarating. It won't be long before you are eager to hear the song again
each time it comes to an end. "Where Have You Been" is the soundtrack
for the search for a perfect lover on the dance floor, and it ends with the
search still continuing. Well done Riri!!! Watch the VIDEO for the song HERE!
