It seems that RiRi never ceases to amaze us with her constant transformations and jumps from one style to another. With her latest single, however – “b**** Better Have My Money” she seems to piss off a little bit more people than usual.
While there are many contradictions about the true meaning of the song, one thing is for sure – Rihanna requires some payback. There’s no official confirmation nor a single hint if this payback concerns her ex, Chris Brown. If it’s some sort of showing off in front of the fans who obviously don’t have a
brand new foreign car or we can trust the speculations that BBHMM treats some extremely serious political topics – slavery and reparations.
Many things in the lyrics make us believe that the combination of repetitions and trap style could be an appeal for some justice; for some payback that many who were discriminated against desperate yarn for. The persistent sound of
shots, shots, shots and
brrap, brrap, brrap are just an amplifying echo from old political, moral and ethical wounds.
At the same time, if you try not to dig so deep for some hidden sense, the lyrics and rhythm could just sound like another moving hit in the clubs. Many fans seemed to be even offended by the notorious swaggering of Rihanna and took the lyrics by heart –
Kamikaze if you think that you gon’ knock me off the top.
Even with so many contradictions, fans who adore her and critics who want to smash her, one thing is sure for Rihanna – someone owes her something and he better give it to her quick ‘cause
Y’all should know her well enough, this girl is electrifying!
