5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying for the remix alone - Rihanna's success knows no ends!, 24 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Hate That I Love You (Audio CD)
Barcode: 0602517513693

Personally i'd have gone for Breakin' Dishes as the 3rd single but looking back, i can see why Rihanna went for Hate That I Love You. It shows just how incredibly versatile she is as an artist, that she can do beautiful ballads as well as the uptempo stuff we all know and love her for.

Built around a dreamy acoustic guitar chord progression layed over a characteristically hip-hop beat, this tune is an immediate winner. It's got a warmth to it that you can't help but fall in love with and although i'm not usually a fan of Ne-Yo, he comes good on this track and serves as the perfect accompaniment to Rihanna's vocals.

The star attraction of this single though is the K-Klassic mix which serves as the b-side! I didn't even know K-Klass were still going but everyone remembers them from their amazing rave hits from the early 90s. And that's what they bring to this song - transforming Rihanna's ballad into a sun-drenched Ibiza club anthem it's dripping with retro rave piano's and twirling synths. This could be something staight out of the early 90s and it sounds perfect - one of the best remixes i've heard in a long time.
