"Breakin' Dishes" is a song written by Terius "The-Dream" Nash and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart and recorded by pop singer Rihanna. The song was produced by Christopher Stewart, who was also partly responsible for the singer's worldwide smash hit "Umbrella." After several delays as a single, it will officially be the eighth single from Good Girl Gone Bad including the Reloaded edition. All Access has it listed to go for radio adds on CHR/Top 40 on October 7, 2008. The song was performed at many European and Canadian venues during a promotional tour for her album during the summer of 2007. The song is featured in the 2007 film Sydney White and an episode of Bionic Woman.
Entertainment Weekly stated that "In 'Breakin' Dishes,' Christopher 'Tricky' Stewart (Britney Spears' 'Me Against the Music') provides her with an appropriately frantic romp so she can wax neurotic about a stray man: Is he cheating? Maybe, I don't know, she wonders. I'm looking around for something else to throw. Rolling Stone said that: Great track here. The beat is fierce and so is Rihanna with her lyrics. Rihanna shows attitude on this one, and it is another catchy single.
Urban Review said that: Breakin ' Dishes is a high-tempo, energetic song which, in my opinion, is a highlight of her very likable 3rd album. The track's theme (if you can call it that) is Rihanna getting pretty pissed with her man & starts "Breakin' Dishes". Although Rihanna does not have the vocal ability to match the likes of Beyonce or Mariah, nor the charisma, I find it so hard to hate on her; she is a cool, young woman making some very radio friendly music.
