“Hard” feat. Young Jeezy (Live on SNL) (Video)

    The general consensus about Rihanna’s Rated R is that it’s full of anger but somewhat lacking in memorable tunes. The singer appeared on Saturday Night Live this past weekend (Dec. 5) to promote the record, beginning with a performance of “Russian Roulette,” during which she sat in a large chair and donned a piece of medieval headgear.


    Rihanna enlisted Young Jeezy to help her with a version of “Hard,” which necessitated a costume change and was livelier than the lackluster “Russian Roulette.” The rock excesses of her backing band don’t sit too easily with these songs, but Jeezy makes it just about worth watching.
