Tunesday: Karmin - "Bitch Better Have My Money"

While her music might not always be my thing, I love Rihanna. I love how she doesn't give a fuck about what people think about the clothes she wears (and the bras she doesn't), along with giving reporters shit when they ask about her love life.

When I Karmin's cover of "Bitch Better Have My Money" showed up on my Spotify discover weekly playlist I could not stop listening to it on repeat. It took a song I loved and turned it into something so much more. I only wish it had a crazy music video to go with it, like Rihanna's original version does. (Warning NSFW or little 'uns).

I came across this video the other day which turned out to be about Bibi Bourelly, the 20 year old girl from Berlin who wrote "Bitch Better Have My Money" for Rihanna. Berlin is another place that fascinates me, partially due to a horrible personal experience I had there (but I learned a lot from), but mainly it's gritty urbanism. With night clubs that stay open 24 hours a day and run all weekend long, Berlin is my number one recommendation, if you want to dance out the end of the world and go out in a drug induced glory. Needless to say, I love learning about people who live there because they're always a little weird, ya know?

It's really a shame that this is the best remix that Karmin has made because it is phenomenal! Their other covers sound like lame generic acoustic covers and are very bland in comparison. It's really too bad. Their original music, on the other hand, has a lot of potential. Their recent hit "Sugar" is a pop hit with all it's sugary goodness.

What did you think? Was today's song a hit or a miss?
