31 days of RiRi: “Hate That I Love You”- Day 17
” That’s how much I love you, that’s how I much I need you…”
You know what I hate? That I almost forgot to feature this song in our Rih celebration until it played today when I was listening in shuffle mode. Talk about in my feelings. “Hate That I Love You” is that duet Rih did with Ne-Yo back in ’07, remember! It’s not a stand-out or the song that you will always remember Rihanna for, but it’s one of those songs that you fall in love with after listening to her complete album. And, honestly speaking, this song was released as a single from the Good Girl Gone Bad Album, which already had immense success and great singles leading it up. Like I said before, every song on that album was a hit so this one was a soft ballad about love that didn’t need to be the most popular song. This just shows how good Rihanna is musically, because this is one of her less popular singles, and it’s still gone platinum.
Plus, Rih looked absolutely beautiful in the music video. Her and Ne-Yo had great, undeniable chemistry, too.
