New Music: Rihanna f/ Nicki Minaj – ‘Raining Men’

Rihanna and Nicki Minaj

Hallelujah! Rihanna and Nicki Minaj make it rain the opposite sex on the tinkering “Raining Men,” fresh off the red-haired siren’s album Loud (Nov. 16). The ladies go in over a teetering drum rhythm accented by sleezy synths, boasting about getting showered in male affection.

“Fallin’ like the rain, so we ain’t running out,” sings RiRi while Nicki raps, “Excuse me, but who are you fixin’ to be/ Let the mothaf***as know it’s plenty fish in the sea.” Grab an umbrella and prepare for the storm.

    once again, Nicki steals the show. Poor Rihanna sounds like a fool compared to her. The lack of a chorus is random but otherwise a good album cut. Nicki killed it.

    am i the only one who can hardly understand what rihanna is saying….
    lack of a chorus is right, and nicki’s part was really good
    the song is good, it’s one the those ones that i will grow to love after radio play and etc.

    Rihanna “Rated R” was you best work lyrically to date. However I feel like now you are focusing on making hits and not music.

    I don’t know who Rihanna is anymore. Good Girl Gone Bad, Rated R are Rihanna classics and showcase you as an artist. Lately you are in the same boat as Nicki. She makes the charts however people forget about the songs 5 months later.

    [Reply]

  13. whatever

    I wonder what the other song sound like. The one that’s on PINK FRIDAY!!! LOUD & PINK FRIDAY THE ONLY ALBUMS I’M COPPIN THIS YEAR!! SMH

    [Reply]

  14. Becca

    Alright, this song is actually WAY to juvenile. I think Willow Smith would do it way better than Rihanna. IT just seems like something a child would sing, not a woman on her fifth album. -_-

  23. Keepin it 100

    Rated R was Rihannas best album in my opinion i liked it even better than Good girl Gone Bad and Good Girl Gone Bad was her best album to most people but to me Rated R just showed her growth as an artist. This Loud era is ok to me. What do yall think?

    [Reply]

  24. Becca

    @Keepin it 100

    I agree 100%

    [Reply]

  25. Shaun

    Brionna Nicki said it because in the original raining men song two fat women sang it

    [Reply]

  38. COMPLICATED

    Oh how i love how all the blog commenters want to appreciate rated r for what it was now but when it dropped noone had anything nice to say about it except the critics. The entire album was ignored by practically every award show. But now since Rihanna is giving ppl what they asked for (fun pop music) everyone wants to complain. Make up your mindspeople. Rihanna is damned if she do, and shes damned if she dont.

    [Reply]

  39. rihannito

    for beyaki stans who r saying riri is copying… beyaki?? ggo listen to lemme get that by rihanna it the same thing as raining man!! but th vocals here r more grown and had more carrebean vibe to it! so dont bring ur fave into here!!

    and didnt beyaki want to make dance music… who does it first … Rihanna ok #NEXT

    @becca thanx.you so much you’re right on point

    [Reply]

  71. TheLuversLane

    of course i acknowlege that willow is like ten and they’re(riri & Nick) talking a little older but a lot of the song is “ennie mennie minnie moe” (child talk) all they’d have to do was change a couple words and it would fit her (willow) perfectly

    [Reply]

  72. king

    rihanna is way better than that lil bitch willow

    [Reply]

  73. Ansel

    I don’t understand why on all these Rihanna and Ciara stories I always see Beyonce stans saying the same thing about how they stealing Beyonce’s stuff or when will Queen B come back…why on’t yall ask stuff like when Lauryn Hill will come back, or other R&B artists that o VERY goo music. Let Ciara and Rihanna do their thing, and stop acting like Beyonce’s the greatest thing that happened to music cuz remember there was a time when Beyonce was around and people wasn’t on her like that…it was called the 90′s and early 00′s when we had REAL artists and REAL competition between them. Beyonce, Ciara, and Rihanna appeal to their individual fan-bases so just leave it be.

    it’s ashame that big man and women would go hard on a 10 year old willow come on all those ladies are doing there thing. Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Willow Smith, but i guess fame comes with the shame and everything that is intertwine with it but it is what it is. Ladies keep doing your thing, rihanna love this song and all your previous songs before it.
