It’s “Raining Men” For Rihanna And Nicki Minaj

Nov 8th, 2010 // 4 Comments

When we heard that Rihanna was tapping Nicki Minaj for a track on Loud, we could not be less surprised — what artist hasn’t worked with Harajuku Barbie in the last year? Still, we couldn’t wait to get our eardrums on the song, and as it turns out, the dancehall reggae tune fits Nicki’s quirkiness perfectly. Still, for a song called “Raining Men”, we’re disappointed there’s no sample from The Weather Girls’ fabulous disco hit. Ah, can’t win ‘em all. Get soaked in the ladies’ jammin’ collab below!

“Fallin’ like the rain, so we ain’t running out / Always raining men, so what you worried about?” sings RiRi.

The track incorporates the children’s nursery rhyme “Eeny Meeny Miny Moe”, which is something that belongs in a song by, say, Willow Smith, not a pop star older than 10-years old. Surprising no one, Nicki steals the show again with her infectious and energetic verse. We’re not bowled over by this one, but because of Nicki’s inclusion, we’re almost definitely betting on this one becoming a single.

Loud drops November 16. After hearing pretty much the whole album by this point — check out the tracks that have made their way ’round the web here — what are your thoughts on the Christmas-lit songbird’s latest, folks? Will you be picking it up?

    This sounds like one of the filler tracks on Music of the Sun. I’m just going to be honest here. I’ve been a Rihanna fan for a VERY long time, but I’m done supporting her. I recently saw some performances of Only Girl on youtube and she CAN’T even sing her own song. I’m really disappointed.
