I Ain't Gon' Stop Until I See Police Lights

Before Rihanna got "edgy" (have you heard? Rihanna's "edgy." She rides on tanks in Mickey Mouse ears and poses for GQ and everything.), she actually was kind of edgy, we just didn't get to hear it much. Here's the proof.

"Breakin' Dishes"
Good Girl Gone Bad
Def Jam Records, 2007

Trivia: "Breakin' Dishes" was one of the two options for the - get this - EIGHTH single released from Rihanna's blockbuster third album Good Girl Gone Bad and its re-release, Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded, but Def Jam chose the other possibility, the Justin Timberlake-penned "Rehab," which peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 two weeks after its October 7, 2008 release as a single. The term "blockbuster" for Good Girl Gone Bad is not hyperbole: it went 2x Platinum in the USA (meaning sales of at least two million) and has sold over 7.6 million copies worldwide. "Breakin' Dishes" was one of four tracks on the album written by Christopher "Tricky" Stewart (who also produced) and Terius Nash, aka The-Dream, only one of which was released as a single: the other of Stewart's two production efforts, and arguably Rihanna's biggest hit, "Umbrella."

Get Rihanna's latest album, the "edgy" (but intriguing) Rated R (seriously, you can download the whole thing for $5 on Amazon!).
