Album of the week: Rihanna “Rated R”


What a year for the singer from Barbados. Recently in an interview she said, after the incident with her ex-lover Chris Brown “i went to bed as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears”. The picture of her swollen face made it all over the world and if it isn`t enough to get through this bad experience, she had to do it in the public eye.

Anyway, Chris Brown`s career seems to be over, Rihanna will succeed with her new album “Rated R”, her fourth studio album. She brought her heart and soul into the new songs. The album is darker but honest  and has lots of great moments on it. She sings about dangerous things like “Fire Bomb”, “Russian Roulette” and “Rude Boy”. But she also sings about feelings for a girl in “Te Amo” and a “Cold Case Love”, one of the highlights on the album.  “Rated R” is excellent produced. Rihanna worked with people like Justin Timberlake, The Dream, Tricky Stewart, Chase&Status, Stargate on the new album and Ne-Yo wrote “Russian Roulette”, the first single from the album. Featurings on the album come from Will.I.Am from The Black Eyed Peas, ex-Guns N`Roeses guitar player Slash and rapper Jeezy. A great album which shows how versatile Rihanna is in her music. A great step forward!
