“Rude Boy” is the biggest hit so far by Barbadian singer Rihanna. It’s zoomed up the Billboard charts in the last 5 weeks as the third single from her fourth album Rated R.
And it’s not in just the US that the song has been big. It’s also topped charts in Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand and Switzerland.
Written by Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Esther Dean, Makeba Riddick, Rob Swire and Rihanna herself, the music video of the song is based on a traditional Jamaican dancehall theme.
So you’ve probably seen the video already. I thought it might be cool to have a good look at the lyrics since they’re not that easy to pick up in Rihanna’s rapid fire delivery.
Of course, a quick look on YouTube gives me a good version to choose with nice contrast and excellent audio. I like it better when I can see the lyrics on the screen. The only thing better is the karaoke version…
Just follow the bouncing ball!
