Rated R by Rihanna

“I lick the gun once I’m carried out as a result of I do know that revenge is nice. So candy.” These are the highly effective phrases that suck you into Rihanna’s new CD, “Rated R.” This album options Rihanna’s normally candy, thrilling voice crammed with rage and pity. Some say her breakup with boyfriend Chris Brown had rather a lot to do with it, however I feel it was simply time to see a deeper, extra ghetto facet of her.

“Rated R” has a variety of selection, from songs like “Fireplace Bomb” and “Rockstar 101,” with its loud electrical guitar solos and quick beat, to “The Final Music,” with unhappy lyrics and her soothing voice that makes you set the music on repeat and marvel if it truly is the final music.

Rihanna sings with many individuals on this album, together with Jeezy, Slash, and Will.i.am. She sings rather a lot about getting used and abused.

In “Wait Your Flip” she calls for to be handled with respect, and “Silly in Love” describes how she nonetheless loves him, however he’s hurting her so it will possibly’t work: “That is silly. I’m not silly. Don’t discuss to me like I’m silly. I nonetheless love you however I simply can’t do that ….”

One of many worst songs on the album is “Te Amo.” It's about her and one other woman dancing. It has completely no depth. It’s like she is singing about an inside joke. “Laborious” (with Jeezy) is among the finest tracks and is about her staying onerous and getting over Chris.

It doesn't matter what you consider Rihanna, “Rated R” is considered one of her finest albums. It proves that she is an actual particular person with actual issues taking place to her, and that she’s not excellent.
