I've always really liked Gasoline for some reason
Melmagpie Matstolenkas getting sued for You Da One instead when this is literally a copy pasted early M.I.A. video is so...
Actually pretty shocking Maya never started a Twitter beef with Rih in the wild wild west of 2010 Twitter over it.
I was re-reading the elimination for You Da #14 Peak and realized that I had literally no memory of the video at all so I decided to watch it and um..................great wigs, beautiful wigs 
Roc Me Out is a retread, but at least it excels at what it's doing. There's tons of filler across Talk That Talk that isn't memorable or even carrying distinct hooks.
I didn’t know till now that We Found Love, Rude Boy and You Da One we’re all directed by the same person. Egregious rip offs but also perfect music videos?
Didn't she also rip-off Dave LaChapelle with S&M too? At least she's consistent in method.
While I was studying filmmaking and we were all encouraged to get odd jobs as runners where we could, one gay got a job on the You Da One music video shoot. Girls I was shaking with jealousy.
Then I watched the video and was like nah I’m good actually
Who's That Chick being out this early is traumatic.
I miss you, like everyday
Wanna be with you, but you're away
Deserves Top 10
Well the voters had an agenda and were determined to see it through, I don't think Rihanna and Britney deserved this bad of a bloodbath, especially losing Roc Me Out already.
We're losing the first 11/10 of the rate tonight.
It's mine. I know it.
Maybe it's stockholm syndrome from the 10 years Rih's heel was firmly planted on my neck(?), but I still knew 80% of the lyrics to the album despite not revisiting Talk That Talk until this rate. I still scored it for the garbage bin as it's easily the weakest album here... but whew!!!!.... her power here was darksided, magnificent and I miss it.
I know it'd be a side-gig, but I really hope she eventually gives us another era because I do miss her magnetic energy.
*applies Fenty clown make-up* as new music from virtually all the other ladies (yes even Britney) feels more imminent.
Ah yes, the nefarious agenda of eliminating the bad songs and keeping the good ones in must be stopped at all costs!
My lowest remaining scores are for the following songs:
Yoü and I
Dance for You
Do Ya Thang
What the Hell
While I'm at it, I'll also say this: "Roc Me Out" is better than "Rude Boy".
The way this happens every rate for @DJHazey
Well yes, that's true, I just happen to think the albums are alot more evenly balanced.
I participate in like 200 rates per year though, so it evens out in the end.
My guess is someone threw Adele an 11.
