It looks like Britney Spears and Katy Perry arent the only it-girls that really dig Robyn these days. Vinyl and Vodka has just posted the second single from Rye Ryes still-upcoming debut LP, Go! Pop! Bang!, and the track titled Never Will Be Mine makes pretty good use of an acoustic version of Robyns 2005 single, Be Mine. Buoyed by low bpm, and the delicate nature of the original, Rye Rye who is signed to M.I.A.s N.E.E.T. label is able to tame her normally hard-hitting delivery and present listeners with a rather introspective reflection regarding the complex theme of love lost.
The first verse finds the 20-year-old Baltimore native staring at a phone waiting for it to ring, but her self-assured nature eventually breaks through when she spits lines about guys being mean and shady before declaring that you gonna eat your words and Ima make it happen. Rye eventually concedes that she might have messed things up with her man by the time the song ends though: Good girl gone mad, she raps during the cuts closing moments, guess you didnt realize just what you had.
While the songs subject may not realize what he or she had, Rye Ryes fanbase does know what they dont have a proper LP. The Los Angeles Times reports that Go! Pop! Bang! had an original release date set for 2008, but if the MC’s recent interview with Rap-Up means anything, then the world might not be seeing the effort anytime soon. The article says the album is due in spring, but its unclear if that was this past spring, or the ones that are bound to happen in 2012, 2013, 2014, and so on.
In fact, Rye even told the magazine that shes pretty much gone back into the studio to record new songs with the likes of new producers like Pharell and Bangladesh. [Ive] basically [decided] to go in and record new stuff to swap in and out of the album just to refresh it, she said, noting that M.I.A. usually gets the final say on what stays and what goes. Shes major on the album. They go to her for all the decisions and stuff.
Its a good thing we have that mixtape to hold us over. Check out Never Will Be Mine below.
