Not surprisingly the second single- "Wait Your Turn"- from the Barbadian star Rihanna's latest album "Rated R" has leaked. I jumped at the chance to listen to this track, because "Russian Roulette" was so excellent. "Wait Your Turn" is certainly edgy and intriguing, but does it live up to RR's standard? Here are my thoughts on the song...

The first thing that comes to mind is that WYT sounds a lot more like her older stuff. It reminds me slightly of "Umbrella"- her 2007, breakthrough single. Although it sounds a lot edgier, and darker- probably inspired by the incident with Chris Brown earlier on in the year. However it's certainly not as dark as "Russian Roulette" which slightly disappointed me. It's incredibly catchy and "The Wait is Ova" part pulses through your brain all day.

Overall, it's definitely not as good as Russian Roulette: it just lacks the charm of the first single, and sounds slightly over-polished. Bit disappointing, but still infectious. B-
