Rihanna is a machine. An album appears every year, as does a tour, as do the countless singles which inevitably take FM dials from New York to Los Angeles hostage. In this case, Rih-Rih’s strip club melody “Pour It Up” receives a makeover in the form of a remix featuring who’s-who list of characters.
Coining the cast “original” is far from the truth, yet there is some intrigue to make things more festive. From Juicy J’s trippy randomness, T.I.’s streak of impressive verses and the elephant in the room of having Ross and Jeezy on the same record at the same time – once a very common occurrence – hopefully the bite of the line up reflects the bark.
