VIDEO: Watch Rihanna’s pre-show warm-up

All performers go through pre-show rituals and warm-ups so they can hit the ground running when it’s time to step out on stage.

Performing is, after all, a physical thing and you want to be at your best right outta the gate for the show and for the fans; athletes do this all time before they play and, for musicians, it’s really no different.

For those playing instruments, there’s usually finger exercises and practicing/jamming so they’re good to go, and it’s the same concept for singers – except their instrument is their voice. Talk about a physical thing.

In the latest webisode of Rihanna’s “21 Days To Talk That Talk” Countdown series, the pop superstar gives fans a look at her pre-show warm-up, including some info from her vocal coach, Rob Stevenson.

This week, Rihanna plays shows around the UK, including 3 nights at London’s 02 Arena.

“Talk That Talk”
will be released on November 21.
