Earlier I found Bubble Pop, the Rihanna song that uses music from the video game Streets of Rage.  Now I’ve found one using music from Mortal Kombat.  Seriously whats going on here? Singers playing video games and want to kick some ass or something? Nothing wrong with that, but really? These songs are so pop its ridiculous.

Rihanna’s Streets of Rage

April 18, 2010 at 10:58 pm (music, pop culture) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Video games are making their way into pop music. Rihanna’s got the streets of rage beat going in the song Bubble Pop, an unreleased song off her Good Girl Gone Bad Album.  But since its streets of rage its got a strong connection to her Rated R Album.  And to think I didn’t think she was angry then.  Seems she wants to kick some ass.  Although the lyrics for this one are more similar to Gwen Stefani’s Bubble Pop Electric than the songs Rihanna sings on Rated R.  I kinda like this song

Here’s some footage from the game which has some pretty sweet music if you ask me:

Too bad the song falls in between Good Girl Gone Bad and Rated R.  Its good, but it didn’t fit on the album.  What do you think? Do you like the song?  And what do you think about using video game beats in pop music?
