Love On The Brain is a hauntingly dark track which really brings out RiRi’s strong vocals. In fact, some say that it sounds like it was created with lyrics that describing a tumultuous relationship like the one she shared with Chris Brown. Lyrics such as
Must be love on the brain
That’s got me feeling this way
It beats me black and blue
But it f*cks me so good
And I can’t get enough…
What was considered one of her most breathtaking performances, was when she performed the single at the Billboard Music Awards. WATCH THE FULL PERFORMANCE OF RIHANNA’S LOVE ON THE BRAIN AT THE BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS 2016.

Rihanna has been busy on her tour of America as well as released the OST track for the upcoming Star Trek movie, called Sledgehammer. Overall, she has maintained her position as Queen of Pop, focusing more on music and less on controversies in the industry and spats with her contemporaries.

Her previous Hollywood appearance was for the film Battleship that didn’t do so well at the BO.
