:: 21.08.02 : NME 'Word Love' Review
Pick up your copy of NME's latest issue, as it features a fantastic review on 'Word Love'. Alterntaively, you can read it here >>

"Where's the glitz, the TV cameras and weekly telephone votes then? Nowhere to be seen, because this is exactly how people don't go about pop careers nowadays. In bands since she was 15, Leeds-bred Rhianna and her Kelis-crazy hair want to conquer the charts their own way. This is a fine start. Based around a rolling groove The Charlatans would be proud of, 'Word Love', is part cool sophistication and part homegrown Nelly Furtado kookiness. Head and shoulders above the usual precocious chart starlets."

I've been interested since I heard hate or love on the radio and bought it the next day, she has alot of talent, the new song is really good too, can't wait to hear more of it.
