In just one year Rihanna has forgotten her name, taken part in some S&M and shot a man down! You would think after all that activity she would slow down but in fact, RiRi is doing quite the opposite. Her latest album, expected to drop November 21st, is entitled Talk That Talk and shows a side of the Barbados beauty never seen before.
The album hasn’t even come out yet and it’s already climbing iTunes charts, not to mention the first single We Found Love is number one all around the world. Even before the single came out, the video had tons of publicity thanks to one irritated Irish farmer.
If the last album was Loud, this one is louder and much raunchier (you thought she would stop with S&M?). Music sites like MTV are ablaze with anticipation and is not only calling this album the best of her career, but the best of the year! That’s a big statement considering that just this year some of the biggest pop albums were released like Born This Way, Femme Fatale and of course Adele’s 21 (which is perhaps the only album it won’t outsell).
This album takes RiRi’s bad girl image and turns up the volume to the max. The club anthem filled album has her working with the industry’s most talented hit makers such as Calvin Harris, Stargate and Hit-Boy, just to name a few. Other big names also make an appearance, most notably Beyonce’s baby daddy Jay-Z.
This album could only be pulled off by someone as bold as Rihanna. The dark sexual energy that emits has already become a staple for the singer. But does she really Talk That Talk? If her first single is any clue, I would say she not only talks it but she dances, sasses and struts it too.
