Rihanna: 'Don't Stop The Music'

By
Rihanna: 'Don't Stop The Music'
Released on Monday, Feb 4 2008

As a sexy, nimble-footed popstar whose vocal talents are never going to have Mariah quivering in her Louboutins, Rihanna Fenty has always belonged on the dancefloor. Three albums into her career, she seems finally to have realised it. The opening stretch of her Good Girl Gone Bad LP is a veritable pop orgy of lethal hooks, bolshy beats and come hither lyrics.

'Don't Stop The Music', the album's fourth single, finds Rihanna reaping the benefits of this beat-happy approach. A big, chunky floor-filler built around a looped sample of the "mama-se, mama-sa, mama-ku-sa"s from Michael Jackson's 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin', it hands her an unmissable opportunity to sound sexy while wiggling her hips seductively. The whole thing works so brilliantly that, almost unwittingly, it's the best single to bear a 'Jackson, M.' writing credit since 'Blood On The Dancefloor'.
