On October 20, we celebrated the 5th birthday of ‘Russian Roulette‘, iconic single from Rihanna’s fourth studio album ‘Rated R’. It is one of my favourite songs and tackles the issue I think all of us can relate to. Her performance of this song on a Norwegian-Swedish television talk show Skavlan is one of my all time favourites.
This performance is full of emotion but also shows how Rihanna is in control of her voice and hits the notes flalwessly. When it comes to performances I do not really like to keep you busy with reading, just watch the performance and let Rihanna tell you a story. That is what she does, tells a story with ‘Russian Roulette’. It is a very mature record with amazing vocals and sound. When it first premiered I was in awe – five years later I am still in love. Her performances of this song are always on point. Relive this amazing moment from her career by watching the performance below.
For the performance and the interview Rihanna wore a jacket by Elie Saab, a dress by Paule Ka and Christian Louboutin heels. Don’t you love her cute blonde curls?
