I'll be honest with you all. Rye Rye's loooong awaited debut album, Go! Pop! Bang!, finally saw release last week. Verdict? Personally, I was completely dissapointed.

However, if you've yet to dabble in Rye Rye's quirky style (it's a little bit M.I.A., her mentor who is heavily featured on the disc; a little bit Nikki Minaj; a little bit Kid Sister; a little bit Azealia Banks; a little bit dance floor schitzo), you definitely should. I highly suggest her hype single with M.I.A. "Bang", which got my interested in her in the first place. Also, her collab with Robyn (via a heavy chorus sample of Robyn's hit "Be Mine!") in "Never Will Be Mine" is a total must.

But other than that, and the cheesy fluff that is her current single "Boom Boom" (which samples the Venga Boys "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!"), much of the material on Go! Pop! Bang! fell flat to my ears -- basically for being too much brash, not enough substance.

However, I am quite partial to this unexpected collab with RedOne protegee and up and comer Porcelain Black ("Naughty Naughty Naughty, we like to party!") in "DNA". The combination is so perfect. Let's get this one serviced to Top 40 Radio asap, Interscope.
