Music Review: Rihanna’s “Talk That Talk”

Rihanna

Release date: November 21, 2011

Label: Roc Nation/Island Def Jam

Purchase: Amazon

I discontinued my interest in anything that had to do with Rihanna since her dark transformation from a “Good Girl Gone Bad.” Let’s just say that I’m not buying the ‘this is really me now’ bit she’s blabbering about. Now and then she does release a song that sounds like an okay track and I can give her that much credit, but her music is still far from ground breaking. However, the pop star never ceases to entertain with her  antics; whether it’s gyrating on girls at a carnival, or grinding on stage in tasteless outfits. With all that foolishness aside, I would like to divert my attention to Ri-Ri’s latest effort, “Talk That Talk.”

Rihanna’s 6th album takes sex to another level. It’s true she’s always performed sexually suggestive songs before, but “Talk That Talk” is the raunchiest of them all. Each track is either coded or bare; it’s a matter of how well enough the listener can interpret the lyrics. There’s plenty of dance numbers, mellow r&b/pop balancers and a few island inspired to fill the mainstream airwaves. Too bad there’s hardly anything of great substance. Allow me to take you through Rihanna’s newest effort and highlight the highs and lows manifested in each track. Continue reading “Music Review: Rihanna’s “Talk That Talk””

Nicki Minaj releases a very pink new video

Nicki Minaj seems like she was blessed with more creativity than any other artist when it comes to artistic direction in her music videos, and the latest “Super Bass” is no different from the rest. Nicki goes poppy and takes her love for pink to a higher level. It’s only expected since her album is titled “Pink Friday“. The single is dedicated to her man; he treats her well, stays fly, and knows how to satisfy her. Nicki got it bad for the guy that’s why she’s singing that he has that “Super Bass“. Watch the music video below and tell us what you think about it. Continue reading “Nicki Minaj releases a very pink new video”
