Really interesting read from NPR about how Rihanna's album was developed: http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2011/07/ ... a-hit-song
The semi corrpution Interested me most between the radio playlisters and Rock City. Does this happen in the UK? Does the Head of Music get wined/dined in the extreme? Rihanna doesnt jet him off to Barbados at the weekends?
