Music Monday - Rihanna, Skepta, Action Bronson
Our first musical offering for July features the controversial video from pop provocateur Rihanna, grime pioneer Skepta's track Back Then as well Action Bronson's latest offering Voodoo.
Rihanna - "Bitch Better Have My Money"Pop provocateur Rihanna returns with the controversial video for her new track "Bitch Better Have Money". The song, produced in association with Kayne West and Travi$ Scott, was released back in March and is due to feature on her forthcoming eighth album. The track and video were inspired by Rihanna's dealing with an accountant who mishandled her finances back in 2009 and is seemingly a cathartic expression for the Barbadian songstress. Love or hate the divisive video there is no denying Rihanna's ability to shock and the video is worth checking out either way:
