T.I feat Rihanna: 'Live Your Life'

By
T.I feat Rihanna: 'Live Your Life'
Released on Monday, Nov 24 2008

Someone must have dropped something in T.I's morning cuppa the day he made this single. No sober man could ever believe yodelling, Europop and Rihanna was a recipe for pop gold. Yet this unlikely combination of R&B, a sample from Moldovan pop collective O-Zone and earnest rapping about being grateful for your lot is currently at number one in the States - and heading in a similar direction over here. Barmy as it may be, it's certainly effective.

Unsurprisingly, it's sure to prove divisive with listeners. While some will be charmed by T.I's well-meaning lyrics and Rihanna's hypnotic chorus hooks, others will find the mixture of samples and robotic effects grating. Our view? Well, hats off to Rihanna for finally taking time out from mining her Good Girl Gone Bad album, but it's a shame she had to waste her break on a naff novelty release like this.
