Morning Song – Love On The Brain

May 9, 2017

All you need to do to get some sense of what a vocal tour-de-force Rihanna delivers in her throwback soul/doo-wop ballad,”Love On The Brain”, is check out a partial listing of singers past and present music critics have grasped at to describe her performance: everyone from Erykah Badu to Frankie Valli, Amy Winehouse to Etta James, Al Green to Macy Gray, Sam Cooke to Prince, Whitey Houston to Mariah Carey to BeyoncĂ©.

Me? With her astonishing technique and love-and-life ravaged vocals, I found myself thinking of Billie Holliday.
