Riff: Rihanna – “Right Now”

Nov 19, 2012

Tomorrow way too far away/And we can’t get back yesterday/But we young right now

from Right Now lyrics by Rihanna

Just when you thought she’d manage to give the whole brainless EDM shtick a miss this time around, along comes Guetta to spoil the mood on a Skrillex-lite four-to-the-floor bass-wobbler which is perhaps just too vacuous to read anything too meaningful into its cliched ‘live for the moment’ mantra.
