THIS is a Biographical Documentary of Trinidadian artiste Rohan Richards aka Fireball.

In early 2006, he emerged above the rest as the first winner of the Synergy Soca Star competition.

This was quickly followed in 2007 by his first hit “What I Want” which morphed from soca to a reworked hit by French DJ and remixer Bob Sinclar that same year and topped the European Club Music Charts.

“What I Want” in 2008, was released by Record Plant Records in the US and hit the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Charts at number 14. that year, he was in contention with Madonna, Ne Yo and Rihanna.

This Documentary is a team effort by Ryan Chance Bascombe, Maria Pantin, Tracey Jordon, Natasha Ramnath and Dylan Thomas.

Rihanna – Rated R

13 November, 2009 4 comments

RiRi has been able to have some great writers on tap after happening to be in the right place at the right time to launch her career… yeah she landed in HOVA’s lap and that’s even better than being found by Diddy… but she also had to come out from behind Beyonce who has been tearing up the charts like no other female before her… i dunno if its the thunder thighs or if they really have talent but something certainly has people interested in seeing and hearing them both…

RiRi has certainly grown up since we first heard her asking the DJ to play it Pon de RePlay… allegedly having nude pics Pon de Internet… grown up so much now that its Rated R… after being bludgeoned by Chris Brown… she has emerged with this new album… making an appearance on the tele to speak about her own personal ‘domestic affairs‘ will certainly not hamper album sales coz it tends to get your name out there… any publicity is good publicity… especially when playing the role of victim… anyway we eh dealing with ‘domestic affairs’ here… album review time… just know that i sometimes get it wrong but generally am right… but they way i done see ppl reacting to Destra’s Fireworks i may be wrong… or just honest like WuzDeScene… song may be crap but the piper called Urban Radio will soon convert me…

Rihanna - Rated R (album cover)

  • Mad House is some trippy DubStep… as an intro…
  • Wait Your Turn… damn RiRi using expletives… chatting in patois… or as we say dialect… well kinda… choon kinda slow pace but me think the lyrics aight…
  • Hard with Jeezy… this choon i find it HARD… prob cause I had it fuh about a week b4 and was banging it… kinda choon that would be banging in the CLUB… infectious beat…
  • Stupid in LOVE… sound like a choon of reflection… i feel the ladies will be playing this when they break up with they fella… i not really feeling the emotion in the choon… just singing lyrics… will be playing on the overnight sessions tho…
  • RockSTAR 101 with Slash… a next slow pace song… if the BPMs were a bit faster i could get into this… “Neva played a Victim”… have some kinda ‘racy’ lyrics in a verse… guess this is waiting for the DANCE remix to become a big choon… it has that potential…
  • Russian Roulette… unno know this choon done big already… i kinda feeling the emotion lil bit… have to play this some more… it kinda reminds me of a choon Sting sang… watch it here
  • Fire Bomb… me likey this choon from its intro… it have things i look for… strings… piano strings… this should be a big choon… and it should also be a crossover hit… mening across genres… this _ish aint Hip-Pop… madly… so far my fav choon… “coz this thing is ready tuh BLOW“… real MTV/VH1 track…
  • Rude Boy… was waiting for the track to bring RiRi back to the West Indian roots… Southern Style riddim with the Caribbean term… and lyric structure… nothing to hard to remember… kinda like Wave Wave Wave… hmmm… Beyonce Soldier choon just pop inna me head… seeing the dance steps everything… dang… you go RiRi… this will be playing in the Clubs in T&T…
  • Photographs with Will.I.Am… did i mention that choons that start off with strings immediately grab my attention… album definitely getting better for me… all i got is nothing without you… one of my favourite lines ever… nice choon about memories… its a kinda tabanca choon but the beat has its pace to not be too sad.. another DANCE remix that i would wanna get…
  • G4L… the strong ladies choon… here it is… lets roll ladies… we Gangsta 4 LIFE… the other song with an expletive… Revenge is SWEET
  • Te Amo… a kinda weak attempt at reggaeton or any other latin music… somebody tell me what she say… thats how i feel about this track… maybe my least fav on the album… yes i like the Mad House intro more… even if it have string…
  • Cold Case Love… what TOFLO said… while i was listening to the album… the choon has proper structure… and _ish i like… piano, strings, beat drop… orchestra kinda thing…
  • the Last Song… finally… was now starting to get bored… great title… its like the song that plays when the credits are rolling at the end of a really good movie… one of the better choonz on the album… me likey… me likey much… the lyrics are damn good… and it have a real nice guitar solo… kinda song i would LOVE to hear LIVE… with a FULL ORCHESTRA… not a five piece band…

album flows well tho… nice overall pace… tracks move into each other very well… kinda album that could get played whole day and you might not realise it… but it isnt Rated R… more like PG13… more info here if you want it…

13 track PROMO on Friday 13th…
