Rihanna sang Vogue years ago for a performance at a fashion show. Rihanna lip synced the entire performance but the dancing was impressive which made up for the lip syncing.
Now a rough studio version has leaked from around 2008 and it’s very lackluster as it hasn’t been cleaned up, vocal wise. Everything about the leaked version is bad for that reason; otherwise the song would have been exceptional. Still nothing would have topped the original Vogue track.
It would have been interesting to know if Rihanna ever planned to release this back in the day. Other outlets have mentioned this track being featured on Rihanna’s next album but this isn’t the case.
It’s just a really old studio version.
