.Fresh Music Fridays: [Album Review]: Rihanna Is So “Unapologetic”


The Rihanna Navy has done it again! The Bajan beauty’s seventh studio album, “Unapologetic” is set to give the singer her biggest LP debut to date.

On the height of her infamous (and a bit scandalous) “777 Tour”, RiRi’s album was released on Monday.

The 15-tracker is filled with majority up-tempos songs and ballads which for the most part foreshadows love in all its forms: the highs and the lows.

Tracks like the opener, “Phresh out the Runaway” , serve as a female ego booster (and is perfect for getting ready for a hot date!) – It’s Rihanna, need more be said?

“I bet you wanna know what I’m all about?

You really wanna know how I get down.

Walk up in this b-tch like I own the h-e… I own the h-e.”

More in your face than ever with her lyrics and choice of hard-hitting yet addictive beats, the album’s title is super fitting!

With guest features from Eminem, Mikky Ekko, Chris Brown, and Future, many of the songs off of “Unapologetic” can stand alone as singles for the 24 year-old pop star.

Favorites off the album: “Diamonds”, “Pour it Up”, “Loveeeeeee Song” ft. Future (*Fun Fact: Jay-Z heard the song, which was originally named, “Love and Affection” – thought he wanted to be on the track as well and changed the name adding the extra E’s), What Now, “Nobody’s Business” ft. ex-beau, Chris Brown, and “Love Without Tragedy”/”Mother Mary.
