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 Beyoncé.

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