Party Anthem – Rihanna’s “Cheers”

I’m not a huge fan of Rihanna but I have to once again give huge props to my wife for turning me on to an awesome song.  Talk about a party anthem!  Great lyrics and just an all around fun song!

“Cheers (Drink To That)” – Rihanna

Cheers (2010)Cheers to the freakin weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh let the Jameson sink in
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Don’t let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There’s a party at the bar everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to that
I drink to thaaaaaaaat.

Life’s too short to be sittin’ round miserable
People gon’ talk whether you doing bad or good, yeah
Got a drink on my mind and my mind on my money, yeah
Looking so bomb, gonna find me a honeyyy
Got my Ray-Bans on and I’m feelin’ hella cool tonight, yeah
Everybody’s vibin’ so don’t nobody start a fight, yeah-ah-ah-ah

Cheers to the freakin weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh, let the Jameson sink in
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Don’t let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There’s a party at the bar everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to thaaaaat
I drink to thaaaaaaaat.

Bout to hop on the bar, put it all on my card tonight, yeah

Might be mad in the morning but you know we goin hard tonight
It’s getting coyote ugly up in here, no Tyra
It’s only up from here, no downward spiral
Got my Ray-Bans on and I’m feelin’ hella cool tonight, yeah
Everybody’s vibin’ so don’t nobody start a fight, yeaaaahhh

Cheers to the freakin weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh let the Jameson sink in
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Don’t let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There’s a party at the bar everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to that
I drink to thaaaaaaaaat.

Cheers to the freakin weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh let the Jameson sink in
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Don’t let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There’s a party at the bar everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to that
I drink to thaaaaaaaat.
And I drink to thaaaat.
I drink to thaaaaaaat.
And I drink to that.

I’m heading to Indy later this month to hang out with Pip and though we don’t really NEED an anthem for our twice a year debauchery, this just seems like it was written with us in mind 😉  Rihanna’s rocking some sort of rasta/Jamaican accent here which makes her that much hotter (if that’s possible).  Enjoy!

  1. So after doing a little bit of research I realize that Rihanna is from Barbados which explains the accent… just have never heard it before in her other songs. *shrugs*
