Twitter Reacts To Rihanna Being Used In Battlefield 4′s Trailer

One of the hottest topics coming out of the leaked Battlefield 4 trailer isn’t the high quality visuals or the heart-racing action, but the inclusion of a Rihanna snippet. (Battlefield 4, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

Funny its not even a Rihanna song
iXenon  +   386d ago
The article mentions who the song belongs to and that Rihanna is only featured on it. Despite that, it's still an odd mix
Kevin McCallister  +   386d ago
I just watched the trailer and I can't see what's wrong with it...Do the lyrics not tie into the theme/gameplay of Battlefield? Do the potential players of this game feel that their masculinity is challenged because they listened to a Rihanna hook during a preview of their favorite title?

I hope they use Trinidad James - All Gold Everything just to piss off the world with their next trailer lol.

When I think of war and death I don't think of rap or hip hop, I think of hard rock or heavy metal.
Cupid_Viper_3  +   386d ago
It's unbelievable how much of an issue this has become when the hook fits the game perfectly.

"Feel it comin' in the air
Hear the screams from everywhere
I'm addicted to the thrill
It's a dangerous love affair
Can't be scared when it goes down
Got a problem, tell me now
Only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight...
Is who's gonna run this town tonight...
We gonna run this town"

Are air battles not a part of Battlefield?
Are we not "addicted" to the game?
When we get online, don't we all just have one thing on our minds? and is it not who da f*ck is gonna run this this map? town? or what ever?

@ 422185

That's great and there's nothing wrong with that, as long as you recognize that this is "your personal preference", out of the nearly 8 billion people on this earth.

Song fits well with the trailer. People who are hating obviously are too picky. It's just a trailer guys, not every Modern War Shooter trailer should have Rolling Stones, or The Who lol.

So COD fans with an outdated engine have to resort to nitpicking songs that actually fit the theme?
nukeitall  +   385d ago
The song is a little out of place primarily because I heard it so many times on the radio and totally don't associate it with war.

However, it is a good fit so don't know what the bruhahaha is all about.

@morganfell:

What happened to you?

Your comments get worse by the day!

People will complain about anything for the sake of complaining. It really isn't even that serious, the song fit the trailer well
Ser  +   385d ago
A hip h(p)op track in an FPS trailer? Move along, nothing out of the ordinary here.

I do wish DICE, EA, or whoever gets to choose the music, would just leave rap and hip hop out of these trailers. First it was 99 Problems, and now we get Rihanna? Lame.

Dissapointed that once again Battlefield goes for the hip-hop/pop approach...

THIS is what I want Battlefield music to be

The themes seem to follow the era of the game so I doubt we will get a 1942/43 style them without going back to WWII. Personally I would prefer something a bit more metal for modern BF titles:

iRocket  +   386d ago
I agree. Some metal, or rock would be awesome for Battlefield games. Here's to hoping BF4 has jeeps with radio stations that play AC/DC.
Ser  +   385d ago
That's so much better...but I guess the kiddies don't like metal anymore.
Steadyhndz  +   386d ago
Nostalgia at it's funniest. First of all the theme song has not changed...it's the same rhythm. The hip-hop approach is strictly for commercial use...it makes the game seem more appealing to the biggest audience in America...the commercials for the game in EU are much different actually. Either way though the only developer that will keep it's advertisements with the same flow of music if Blizzard because they aren't going for new comers...they just want their current users to buy the next one.

Cmon people this is really not anywhere near necessary. This is embarrassing .
oof46  +   386d ago
Minus the misplaced hubbub over the music, the trailer looks great. Lots of exploding bits and things getting destroyed. Looks like they're eschewing big army vs big army and it looks like a more intimate story. Of course, I could be wrong.
TemplarDante  +   386d ago
Hoe's and Battlefield have never mixed in the past before. It left me disturbed.
Cyrax4  +   386d ago
The song is terrible. As was 99 Problems, which they used for BF3.
AmbiguousMouse  +   386d ago
The same people bitching about the music will also be pre-ordering it.lol

Well, duh...

Why would people complain about the music for a game they don't plan to purchase?...

It's not the weirdest celebrity connection to a game, tbh.
WitWolfy  +   386d ago
Whats with BF trailers and its crappy Rap sound tracks??? Next time just make it a killer guitar solo and everybody will be happy!
Arai  +   386d ago
I didn't like the song tbh, but whatever...
The video was awesome at least.
maddfoxx  +   386d ago
Its a Jay-Z song, Rihanna only sings the chorus. Why are these people complaining about a song that wont even be in the game. Pretty sure the song is just there for commercial use. . . ya know, to appeal to more people who might watch the ad.
M-M  +   386d ago
They should have used a country song.
Mookie  +   386d ago
They should of played tyler the creator - radical lol
But I'll smash Rihanna anyway ;P
feedurhabit  +   385d ago
I think Chris Brown's already smashed her

I also would like to use Rihanna...
AJ Hartley  +   386d ago
Not to bothered myself musics is music battlefield is battlefield. If I would of rolled with a song it would have been uncommon valor by vinnie and the rugged man.
chukamachine  +   386d ago
Rihanna can't sing and she is with a loser called Chris brown. Maybe she likes a beating.
Ashunderfire86  +   385d ago
I don't see the big deal people Military shooters always use rap songs in all their commericals.

Eminem in Modern Warfare 2 "To I Collapse( My favorite song on the Eminem Show Album, his best album in my opinion)."

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

and Battelfield 3 with Jay-Z 99 problems:

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

And to correct the title this is also a Jay-z song featuring Rihanna so stop complaining about bullcrap!!!!

They used Eminem again for the COD MW3 trailer. Won't back down or whatever it was called.
Ashunderfire86  +   384d ago
Actually for Black Ops 1 but yeah that was a good song also.
Obamanationn  +   385d ago
as if no one has ever been caught singing a rihanna song , no matter how much metal or rap or wierd k/j pop disney songs u listen to , were all guilty
kaozgamer  +   385d ago
what a stupid article. the guy who wrote it just collected all the negative tweets together and then says unpopular decision on ea's part...how did this get approved?
josephayal  +   385d ago
In B4 Trailer? omg I think I'm in love with Rihanna
ATiElite  +   385d ago
Rhianna is so friggin HOT and Fine She could be apart of a Toilet Tissue commercial and I would be happy.
ginsunuva  +   385d ago
Well, this is the 2nd Jay-Z song they've used.
kostchtchie_  +   385d ago
