Rihanna 'Rude Boy’
Free Music Video Mp3 Downloads

‘Rude Boy’ is taken from Rihanna’s critically acclaimed fourth studio album ‘R-Rated’. A phenomenally successful track, it ruled the American Billboard Hot 100 for over a month, winning Rhianna Airplay Gainer and Greatest Gainer accolades. ‘Rude Boy’ also conquered the international charts, striking gold in the UK and New Zealand and hitting platinum status in Australia.

Rihanna’s single ‘Rude Boy’ looks like sexually aggressive pop art. The track itself features a languorous addictive beat, heavily laced with Jamaican dancehall rhythms and reggae. The track resonates with the same deep dirty bass that thumps through the rest of ‘R Rated’ giving a taste of the notoriously dark personal issues that Rihanna vents about violent ex-lover Chris Brown.

As she stalks her way through ‘Rude Boy’, the leonine singer makes her mark in a series of provocative and sometimes wacky catsuits. She appears to relish the role of dominatrix, simultaneously teasing and mocking the eager men who pant for her attention – “Come on rude boy, rude boy, can you get it up?”

For her part, Rihanna is an arrogant lion-taming queen, fiercely sexual and capable of taking what she needs to satisfy herself. Refusing to conform or be upstaged by the wildly colourful background, she gyrates and bogles to the beat of her own drum.

Free Music Video Mp3 Downloads - Rihanna 'Rude Boy’

Directed by Melina Matsoukas this latest video will no doubt be highly sought among free music video Mp3 downloads. It is reminiscent of M.I.A.’s ‘Boyz’ and contains references to the visual artist Keith Haring. Bold and stylish, it has the same in your face attitude as the song, refusing to be marginalised or blend in with the usual blandness of other MTV idols.

‘Rude Boy’ does however, fit seamlessly into the style of her ‘R-Rated’ album. The theme of control is evident in the menace of opening track ‘Mad House’. From here on in, the music follows a haphazard path, as Rihanna steps into dubstep territory in ‘Wait Your Turn’ and flirts with flamenco in ‘Te Amo’.

The raw suffering in her voice on ‘Cold Case Love’ turns the spotlight onto the pain of being a victim. Even though the track is written by Justin Timberlake, lyrics such as ‘What You Did To Me Was A Crime’ and ‘Your Love Was Breaking The Law’ are performed with intensity that brings to mind her well-publicised private trauma.

There is more heartbreak in ‘Photographs’ and betrayal in ‘Stupid in Love’ but the songs are balanced with elegant musical arrangements that prevent them from degenerating into self indulgent misery.

The feisty defiance of ‘Rude Boy’, the aggressive hooks of ‘G4L’ and Rihanna’s willingness to punch out a song in her harsh Caribbean accent add some much-needed attitude to the mix. The album is given an extra veneer of cool, thanks to collaborations with Young Jeezy on ‘Hard’ and the grinding guitars of Slash on ‘Rockstar 101’.

Overall, ‘R-Rated’ is an album that demonstrates Rihanna has matured as an artist. The raw quality of her soulful voice is well suited to the angst of ‘Russian Roulette’, ‘Firebomb’ and ‘The Last Song.’

When the musical rollercoaster finally grinds to a halt, it seems likely that of all the albums Rihanna has produced, ‘R-Rated’ is most likely to enhance her musical credibility and will doubtless see fans searching for free music video Mp3 downloads.
