Today, everyone’s favorite bad girl is a quarter of a century old. For almost 10 years, RiRi has been providing hits for fans and telling us all to enjoy life to the fullest. Her club bangers and Caribbean-infused pop rhythms give us lessons in partying every time a new single is dropped.
Since today is a celebration, VV has put together 6 lessons Miss Unapologetic herself has taught us through her music. Take notes and get involved in this serious #birthdaybehavior!
Check it out!
1. “Pour It Up”
Without libations there is no party. It is a necessity to spill drinks and toss dollars bills until the club closes.
“Patron shots can I get a refill?/I still got more money/Strippers goin’ up and down that pole/And I still got more money/Four o’clock and we ain’t going home.”
2. “Please Don’t Stop the Music”
Music and liquor go hand in hand when it comes to partying, so stopping the music isn’t an option. The Bajan princess lets us that one special song in the club can sometimes allow you meet the man of your dreams or night.
“Do you know what you started?/I just came here to party/But now we’re rocking on the dance floor, actin’ naughty/Your hands around my waist/Just let the music play/We’re hand in hand, chest to chest and now we’re face to face.”
3. “Birthday Cake”
The rebellious bad gal teaches us that it doesn’t have to be your birthday for you to get what you want. All you need is to be enticing.
“It’s not even my birthday/But he want to lick the icing off.”
When you step out for the night, looking your best is a must. Rih informs us that the haters will be out, but as long as you are confident, you’ll survive the night.
“No fear, and while you getting your cry on/I’m getting my fly on/Sincere, I see you aiming at my pedestal/I betta let ya’ know.”
5. “Pon de Replay”
Every now and then a song is so hot that the DJ has to run it back to get the dance floor riled up. The “Diamonds” singer understands that completely and believes replays of a hot song are a must to keep the party going.
“Come Mr. DJ won’t you turn the music up /All the gyal pon the dancefloor wantin some more what /Come Mr. DJ won’t you turn the music up.”
The weekend is a time to celebrate in itself. The fact that you don’t have to wake up early to head to the office is something to drink to and Rih Rih condones loads of happy hours to get your weekend started on the right foot, cheers!
“Cheers to the freakin’ weekend/I drink to that, yeah yeah/Oh, let the Jameson sink in/
I drink to that, yeah yeah.”
