Today Def Jam Records released the fourth US single from Rihanna’s latest album, Rated R. With past singles Rihanna has tackled elements of many different types of music on this album. She gave us a little dancehall with, “Rude Boy”, some Hip Hop with, “Hard” amd now she is a Rock star! That’s right Rihanna’s latest single is “Rock Star 101” featuring none other than guitar legend, Slash of Guns -N- Roses and Velvet Revolver fame! Like his contribution to Michael Jackson’s “Black Or White” from 1991, Slash provides a very nice Rock edge to an otherwise slick track produced by Tickey Stewart & The Dream.
The song made its debut on American Idol last month when Rihanna was a guest performer. Keep checking back for the Anthony Mandler directed video to debut soon!
