Throwback Thursday ‘Disturbia’ by Rihanna (2008)
"Disturbia" was on the re-release of Rihanna's album, Good Girl Gone Bad. It was the third single off of the reloaded album, but the seventh single overall.
"Disturbia" was actually written by Chris Brown and his team for his album, Exclusive. Eventually, he decided it would be better suited for a female voice and forwarded it to Rihanna. He instead recorded and released "Forever."
The music video is what makes "Disturbia" one of my favorite Halloween songs. The music video is creepy and full of twisted, weird stuff. Tamar Anitai from MTV Buzzworthy said of the music video, "In Rihanna's 'Disturbia' video, obsession manifests itself in freaky-deaky tarantulas, wigs, wolves, and a creepy dude in an eye patch. And S&M-y corsets. Paranoia never looked so supernaturally sexy!"
"Disturbia" was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 2009 Grammys.
According to Wikipedia, "The song topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for two consecutive weeks, and became Rihanna's third number-one single from Good Girl Gone Bad and fourth overall on the Hot 100."
"Disturbia" also went to #1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs, Mainstream Top 40, and Pop 100 chart.
