Music Review: Hard - Rihanna ft. Young Jeezy

Speed: 91 bpm

The DJ’s Take: This has to be one of the most unintentionally funny music videos in recent memory. If I were one of those soldiers, we’d have to do about 20 takes before I could keep a straight face. The instrumental is bland, with a repetitive piano loop and fake horns that make my eyelids heavy. But I have to admit that the hook is well-done and catchy. I didn’t even realize this was in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 until a few days ago, and I still haven’t gotten around to downloading it. No requests for this yet, although a top 40 DJ might want to keep it on hand as a disposable part of the rotation.
