    I’m not a fan of this song, her voice doesn’t sound too good and I normally like her unique tone. The video on the other hand was really good. I like the fact that it told a story.

    Vero it was acting funny with me as well. I saw it here: put the w’s back in front plus . then directlyrics.com/rihanna–man-down-music-video-news and the . html. Should pop up.

    Rihanna killed it with this one… All the blogs crashed and she set twitter on fire…. Favorite video thus far. That is why I love her. Her personality was all that in the video. Even haters giving her props.

    I love this song. I didn’t know the song was about rape, I just thought she shot the guy just because.

    I luuubs me some Rhi! :hug: Like the video and song (has substance). Jamaica is one of my fav spots. :blunt:

    The lyrics sort of reminded me of the song Bohemian Rhapsody when Lauren Hill was telling her mama she just killed a man.

    Rhi Rhi runs this mutha, Bey…

    Trucie says:

    love the song. the song is supposed to be about breaking a mans heart, its not about rape but the visual really fits the song well. Either way, I’m satisfied with the effort.

  15. 15

    I was almost turned on til I realized she was gettin raped

    I hate all these videos that depict caribbean people as broke and homeless bushmen…
    And I want to personally thank Ri-ri for teaching me that if a man rapes me I should take a gun and “shoot him down in front of a big old crowd”.

    @Kezi, thanks for the link
    @Sandra, thanks for fixing it

    i really like the video. and it changes from the funky weird ones she’s used to make… (i’m from the islands, maybe that’s why !)

    Feline Feminine says:

    I really do like Rihanna…and I love this song…she looks beautiful in this vid…

    @Sandra, I play it alot in the car too!

    Se7en Star says:

    This is garbage, and her voice sounds horrible. If this was a new artist then it wouldn’t get any love, nor airplay and you know it! This is why the music talent, artistry, quality, and industry has been on the decline for well over a decade now because the fans are more like personality worshipers than anything else. She sounds like a well trained rooster waking people up in the early morning and nothing more.

    When there is ONLY GARBAGE to choose from then, well, you can ONLY CHOOSE garbage and like it!

    Fayla says:

    & I do really like this song (& that’s saying alot 4 me bc I don’t like her voice) however, when she does a song w/an island vibe, she shines imo..

    This song reminds me of the old Rhianna when she was singing “Murderer” It’s not what I thought it was going to be (thought they were taking extra time to do something very extravagant) but nonetheless it’s good.

    I didn’t know that Lauren Hill covered Bohemian Rhapsody. The original was performed by Queen, and it’s a classic!

    caribcanadian says:

    I am not a Rihanna fan but this song is very good. I found that it suited her voice. I may be partial because I am Bajan descent and the islands vibe is part of my culture. I also liked Rude Boy except for the video…she’s too much about sex..It’s a turn off.

    @ Jaqyfine: I agree a 100%….I hate videos that show jcan people as poor and hungry. And don’t forget the shacks as if they don’t live in decent houses.

    Anyway, I hope she doesn’t attempt to do reggae again, it’s not her genre.
