Rihanna has always been known for easily scoring hits but she has been struggling to continue that trend during this latest era of her career.
“FourFiveSeconds” peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and lost momentum before gaining enough traction to reach the chart summit. Its followup, “Bitch Better Have My Money”, has thus far stalled at 19 without the support of an accompanying video.
It appears Rihanna has lost the multiplatinum touch that made her a household name. Instead of extending her string of chart-topping songs – she currently has 13 – Rihanna is now skirting her former success.
Earlier today, Rihanna released another song, “James Joint”, and it highlights another issue: There is no continuity in her music. There is no binding theme, thus explaining why some of her fans are not seriously devoted to this era of her career.
So, what could Rihanna do to turn things around? That’s what I highlight in this latest episode of Trini Trent TV. My advice builds on my previous advice to Rihanna with new perspectives given the release of her recent material.
Take a deep breath of that Barbados oxygen. Hold the weed.
