EARLIER // AUGUST 9:
Must be love on the brain.
Rihanna decided her next ANTi release is “Love On The Brain,” and with all of the feelings surrounding her seemingly budding relationship with Drake, it’s no wonder.
Check out the cover art above.
The song is a poetic love tune about not being good enough for someone, yet unexplainably still head over heels. “And I run for miles just to get a taste,” she sings. “Must be love on the brain.”
You may recall Rihanna shelved “Work,” “Kiss It Better,” “Needed Me,” “Same Ol’ Mistakes” and “Consideration” at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this year to perform this track, and it’s one of the best live performances of the year.
Riri has spent 60 total weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with her 14 hit singles. She only trails behind Mariah Carey who owns the No. 1 spot with 79 total weeks. Looks like she’s on her way to snatching that record.
Huge thumbs up for this.
