If you thought Rihanna was bad before, then welcome to her dark side.
The wait is not quite over for her upcoming album, “Rated R” – due November 23 - but the singer is revealing another taste of her evolved sound with the video for her latest single, “Wait Your Turn” , on RihannaNow.com.
Like her barbed-wire bound image on the album cover, “Wait Your Turn’s” grainy black-and-white video is a testament to toughness. The trendsetter dons plenty of leather, enough jewelry to seriously injure anyone looking for a fist fight and she is not - I repeat not - afraid of the crotch grab.
The dark sunglasses she wears seem a little reminiscent of Aaliyah, which she switches up with an eye-patch over her left eye. I smell a new signature look, but only time will tell if it’ll take off like her jet-black haircut of yesteryear.
The Barbadian songstress revealed to Glamour magazine in an interview that she put everything she wanted to say in the past eight months into her music.
“[My new album] is super fearless,” she said in the interview, “which is exactly how I feel right now. I am in a really good place.”
