Rihanna è sicuramente una delle regine della pop music di questi anni. Un pop spesso abbastanza scontato con musiche danzerecce e testi il più delle volte pieni di riferimenti sessuali, il tutto aiutato dal look della ragazza che oltre a cantare è anche una modella e non si fa pregare per mostrare le sue grazie.
American Oxygen


Il testo di questa canzone potrebbe sembrare anche una specie di inno patriottico, un elogio del Sogno Americano. Bisogna però guardare il video e considerare che la stessa Rihanna è un'immigrata arrivata negli USA dalle Barbados. Il video è ricco di immagini di immigrazione, dal muro al confine con il Messico all'arrivo ad Ellis Island. E il finale è chiaro, "We are the new America", lasciateci entrare!

The song means so much, and it's kind of hard to pinpoint one specific thing. A lot of the time it's just a subconscious thing that you're exposed to that comes out in the lyrics. There's a lot of turmoil going on in this country right now, and I don't think of myself as a political person or politically savvy, or someone who can speak as eloquently about social injustice as other people that I know can, who are very well-versed in it. But I think we all have something to say about it, and if you just kind of let it happen and work hard enough at it on a song, something will eventually come out.

People living in this country, or who don't even live in this country, they all feel something different. ... I looked at songs like "Born In The U.S.A." and that record. I listened to a lot of Bruce Springsteen when I was writing this, and he really gets it. He gets that there's pride to living here in this country. This country is great and has the potential to be something really, really incredible, but there are a lot of problems that we don't acknowledge and it's important to shed light on both those things. And if you can do that in a song, that's the best.

Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, woah
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, woah
Breathe in this feeling
American, American oxygen

American oxygen
Breathe in this feeling
American, American oxygen

Oh say, can you see - this is the American Dream
Young girl, hustlin' on the other side of the ocean
You can be anything at all in America, America
I say if you can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe

Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, woah
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, woah
Breathe in this feeling
American, American oxygen

American oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American oxygen

Oh say, can you see - this is the American Dream
Young boy, hustlin', tryna get the wheels in motion
But he can be anything at all in America, America
I say if you can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe

Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen, woah
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire, woah

We are the new America
This is the new America
We are the new America
