The rollout of Rihanna's eighth studio album ANTI has been perhaps one of the sloppiest in recent memory. Still, despite the bungling of those behind the scenes, it seems to be full steam ahead in Camp Rihanna, with the feisty Bajan already counting over a million downloads of the album and pushing a deluxe edition of the set with three additional tracks. Our friends over at 2DopeBoyz bring us a taste of the deluxe edition with new track "Sex With Me."
As you'd expect, the song is all about Rihanna's plan to heal the world. Kidding! Of course, it's about how well she puts it down between the sheets — or wherever else she chooses to do the freaky sneaky. "Sex with me, so amazin' / All this all work, no vacation," she sings over a liquid bed of synths that fades in and out amid skittering programmed drums. She then spends the next few minutes boasting on how skillful she is in wielding her power u (word to Wu-Tang). Typically someone bragging about just how ill their na na really is would be the complete opposite of enticing, but near the track's end, bad gyal Rih allows the production to breathe, creating a feeling like being washed over by ebb and flow of a tide (which, if you're making a song about your *ahem* dewiness, kind of makes sense).
"Sex With Me" definitely doesn't reinvent the wheel, nor does it make us clamor to snatch up ANTI. It is, however, an interesting listen. You can stream the track here and, if you're part of the Navy, pick up the deluxe edition of ANTI on iTunes or Tidal now.
