Rihanna’s first single, “Russian Roulette”, from her new album, Rated R, has a solemn, serious, dim, personal tint to it.  When listening to it you can’t help think of her abusive relationship with former boyfriend Chris Brown. The lyrics co-written and produced by Ne-Yo read in part:“You can see it through my chest/That I’m terrified/But I’m not leaving/I know that I must pass this test/So just pull the trigger,” “As my life flashes before my eyes/ I’m wondering, will I ever see another sunrise?/ So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye/ But it’s too late to pick up the value of my life.” The song ends with a sound of a gunshot. Rihanna’s new album, Rated R, is scheduled for release on November 23.
