    @Kesha, artists don’t do what they do just to please immature girls such as yourself anyway, and you’re speaking for every single American huh? charming…


  7. alice

    anyway, her song how we do is ok, not amazing but it’s nice and catchy and her voice live is really good, the only thing her and rihanna share are looks and an industry really, their voices are different styles in my opinion.

    why people hating so much? the chick is young but she can sing. this (her debut) is designed to show her skills as a vocalist and introduce her to the world. very few debut albums from new artists turn into a classic. yes she sounds similar to rihanna but that’s cause roc nation but that’s cause the Roc paid so much for Brianna’s writing camps that inevitably lots of records get wasted and often songwriters ha’ve clauses forcing labels to reallocate songs. that’s what has happened here. if you don’t like her fair enough don’t buy the record but taking piss out of her name is just immature. as are the obscenities.

    I love it!♥

    Tbh I’ve seen way better covers of What Makes You Beautiful, and her song is ok


  11. flysly

    i don’t see all the hype either. i think everyone caught up on the physical. she getting alot of hype bc jayz backing her.


  12. Hi

    A terrible artist covering a terrible song makes news these days. This is the state of music

    @Hi, will you quit stalking Rita!! Funny how this “terrible” artist has your ass commenting on her and watching her everyday. Get a life.

    Blogs aren’t nothing but a vessel for low self esteem and bitter females to hate on successful. Keep doing your thing Rita, these Hoexs are just mad that they are stuck at some crappy job and not living out their dreams like you.

    Ya’ll need to chill on the comparisons too, because she is vocally miles ahead of Rihanna.


  14. flawda

    *Blogs are

    She did a great job with the 1D song. Since her album has so many pop songs, it’d have been nice if more of them couldn’t had this chill feel.


  16. Melanie

    Love her, love her music, ready to buy r.i.p next week and Ora in 2 weeks.

    I honestly think that her version was way better than one direction . they had no vocals in their song I don’t see the point in them being famous. (honest opinion) .-One love- :)
