Five Songs We Can All Relate to From Rihanna’s Anti Album
By Elizabeth Barrera
Let’s be real. You’ve let them be loud. You’ve let them talk that talk, all while knowing you were just being way too good to them. You’ve been trying to cover their sh*t in glitter, but it’s just not working. Whether you’re in a heartbreak mode, girl power mode, or f*ck it mode, you’ve probably listened to a Rihanna song and thought “well sh*t, if that’s not me.” Here are 5 songs we can all relate to from her newest album, Anti.
1. Work: When you’re putting in work at work and on the dance floor.
Whether we’re on the dance floor shaking what our momma’s gave us (or didn’t), or literally hustling - sitting at our desk, glaring at our computer screen for eight hours, counting down the seconds until we can finally call it a day, and escaping before getting pulled into a last-minute meeting - we are definitely putting in some work work work work work.
2. Kiss It Better: When you’re done being mad and you just want him back.
You’ve been waiting on that sunshine, haven’t you? It’s toxic, it’s awful, but you need it. Yup, sounds pretty familiar, so who are we to judge? It’s one of those “been there, done that” situations. So, f*ck your pride, have him take it all back and kiss it better.
3. Love on the Brain: When you’ve sang Love On the Brain at the top of your lungs.
Moment of truth: You’ve probably been on your way home from work (or wherever) and Love on the Brain comes on. You turn up the music and you sing at the top of your lungs. Next thing you know, you’re bawling and ain’t nothin’ you can do about it no more.
4. Higher: When you’ve been drinking and texting/calling/COMMUNICATING!
We all know that sending a text while intoxicated is not really the best thing to do, but I mean, it makes sense at the time right? What better time to say “I love you” then when you’re drunk? And through a text?...Even better! You’ve probably sent massive texts to an old flame, talking about why you belong together and why they should come over. If you’re really, really in love and feeling the alcohol, then you’ve probably left one or two voicemails also. Just blame it on the sizz’.
5. Needed Me: And when you finally gave up because you’re better off on your own.
Whether you’re a savage because you turned the playa cards on them, or you knew better than to waste your time, the point here is that you’re a damn savage.
