Rihanna, ‘We Found Love’ (Black Cards Remix) – Song Review

Rihanna‘s love affair with dubstep just won’t let up. The ‘Talk That Talk’ songstress features a grimy dubstep breakdown in newly premiered single ‘You Da One‘ and continues to have a love affair with British dubstep kings Chase & Status — who helmed the upcoming bonus track ‘Red Lipstick.’

Now, Pete Wentz‘s new rock group Black Cards has given a thunderous dance remix to ‘We Found Love‘ with prominent dubstep influences.

Queen RiRi’s already heavily processed vocals get filtered even further in the Black Cards mix, plus more robust bass and glitchy, can’t-keep-up synths. Her refrain of “We found love in a hopeless place” gets chopped and screwed before the beat drops out for a trippy, tinkling beat, eventually giving way to even more storming electro instrumentation.

It’s hard to improve upon the crystalline quality of Rihanna’s Calvin Harris-produced original, which is a pretty pristine dancefloor banger as is — but we remain impressed with this aggressive, pumped-up makeover. If the euphoric album edit would sound right at home blowing out the speakers at an Ibiza rave, the Black Cards remix would fare better in a sweat-soaked Munich industrial nightclub, with hordes of Ann Demeulemeester-clad hipsters stomping their combat boots. Turn it up and get to grinding!
