    her album has been colorfully produced ... her voice has begun to bore me. it used to surprise me that it was strong enough to tell a story, so to speak, but I am still waiting for it to convey pure joy, pain, happiness, and sadness ... without the, at times, debilitating auto-tune ...

    here are some more notable tracks, imo:






    not amazing, but some like it hot:

    Rude Boy has been out for a while. It is the greatest sex/seduction song. The words rock, the video is terrible.

    I like the video. I like how early 90s it is, lol. It reminds me of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

    I like it, although the song and video has many similarities to M.I.A.

    I feel old. Don't get the appeal of her at all.
    eh eh eh eh eh. Umbrella was catchy, but on the positive, she's not Taylor Swift.

    I hate to admit it, but I fucking LOVE Rihanna. I'd marry her in a second and clock Chris Brown just for looking at her the wrong way. She's so fucking sexy.

    I don’t know, but I found it too slow. Her music always seems like you have to make an effort to get into it; it never just pulls you in. I always want to like her stuff, but it never works out. I don’t own a single song of hers.

    I felt that way about "Hard" but this song's chorus has been stuck in my head for the last couple days. And I REALLY like the lyrics to "G4L" considering they're all about how if Chris Brown ever tries to hit her again, she's going to bust a cap in his ass.... "I lick the gun when I'm done 'cause I know that revenge is sweet"...."Can't hurt us again, when you come around here
    we got our guns"... I love that she isn't playing the victim.

    I love Rhianna too, but I love her image more than I like her as an actual artist. I think she's gorgeous, and has a great style, but she is definitely lacking as a performer, and I feel with every album she gets more and more dry. She has yet to match the energy of this video, she gave me everything I needed in this video...

    to be honest ... Taylor Swift is not Taylor Swift as of late. * cues the Grammy's *

    think on that again. S.O.S. cannot match the maturity, tone, and balance of Umbrella (the video) ... I don't care how many times it's played. Umbrella (the video) is a force with which to be reckoned:



    ... probably one of her least energetic and well-executed videos, but:
    - she's simply a marvel
    - this was my favorite track from A Girl Like Me

    I agree, Rihanna is great! My favorite song from her is "Take a bow"

    She's fine as hell and I love the video. Her new album is actually quite good, I can listen to the whole thing.

    My biggest problem with her has always been her lack of a voice. She sounds like a b rated Beyonce, and her stage presence also needs a lot of work.

    Just another example of a hot chick with limited talent being given catchy music that makes her a star. However as long as that music stays catchy and she never yowls like a cat in heat again (Unfaithful is honestly painful to listen to vocally) then I will be buying/downloading/dancing to her music. In the end that's what counts.icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, I just put this song into my mp3 player a few minutes ago and see this topic. I love it.

    I'm really trying here with Take A Bow and women's empowerment is great ... but ... this song ... it is just ... a travesty for me. like I said, I'm trying with it. but on a lighter note, she is stunning in the video - especially @ 0.08, 2:20, 3:24, & 3:33 secs.
