An Inspired Tale: Show #4 - LOUD!
Rihanna's New Album LOUD!
After squeezing five huge albums into her tiny six-year career, here's what we actually know about Rihanna: She sang a summer-defining love song about a parasol. She owns an anguished, sweet-and-sour voice and ravishing good looks. And, of course, she survived a hyper-publicized trauma when fellow pop star and then-beau Chris Brown assaulted her on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards.
It was less than a year ago that she dropped "Rated R," a courageous yet confused breakup album that tried to pull the singer's teary-eyed rage into focus. Now, 361 days later, Rihanna comes bouncing back onto the dance floor that made her a superstar, toting a clutch of stolen identities and some fizzy, upbeat tunes written to convince us that she's a whiskey-shooting bar fly, a gun-packing assassin and an unabashed S&M enthusiast. She only proves herself as one thing: a singer of Mary J. Blige-ian gifts.
From the cocky come-on’s of “What’s My Name?,” to the bratty “So long, bye bye” in “Fading,” everything about this record is completely authentic to Rihanna as an artist. There are no overarching artistic statements being made, nor does the record feel like a collection of strategically selected songs with radio play solely in mind.
LOUD is, quite simply, about letting loose–the most befitting celebration of Rihanna’s legacy yet.
