Biography

No sooner had world-class megastar Rihanna wrapped up the final show of her sold-out “Last Girl On Earth Tour” in Chicago last week, than she turned her attention to her brand new fifth studio album on Def Jam Recordings. LOUD, set to arrive on November 16th, has been described by insiders as a return to the uptempo dance grooves of her earlier records.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With A Girl Like Me, the Barbadian teen-queen Rihanna is looking to transfer all claims of royalty to the summertime pop charts. If anybody's going to rule them, she pretty much proclaims by way of "SOS," a song no less irresistible, intoxicating, and all-out cool than 2005's "Pon de Replay," off her debut, she's it. That's not to say this new disc is anything like its predecessor overall. Where Music of the Sun was mostly what its title suggests--a romp through an anglo-friendly island with no sunscreen required--A Girl Like Me is more reflective and a little rueful; you get the sense it was crafted in part to show her range, with executive producer Jay-Z guiding her through it gracefully. "Unfaithful" is a noir-ish testing of the R&B waters, and it goes so well that Rihanna wastes no time skinny-dipping her way into the deep end--"Final Goodbye," "P.S. (I'm Still Not Over You)," and "A Million Miles Away" all betray juicy bits of Beyonce. Back in barefoot bikini-girl land, though--a territory that covers roughly half this disc--the party's still going strong. Rihanna gives dancehall legend Sean Paul a run for his money with the bouncing "Break It Off," and "We Ride" makes you want to roll down the windows and stick your head out the passenger side. Crank it up and keep the sunglasses handy. --Tammy La Gorce

4.0 out of 5 stars S.O.S. - More dancehall please April 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
As can be seen from the album jackets, there are a couple of things that Rihanna has improved since her debut album "Music of the Sun". One of these things is that she has expanded her range from reggae/dancehall and lovers' rock to include pop and R&B.

Hit single "S.O.S." is an extremely catchy track, deservedly getting lots of radio play, and the best track to set the tone for the rest of the album. Second single "Unfaithful" is the opposite - a slow pop ballad with a lot of piano in the background, similar to another track, "A Million Miles Away". "We Ride" is another slow song, but more on the R&B side, as is the sad "Final Goodbye", "P.S. (I'm still Not Over You)" and "A Girl Like Me", with its Spanish guitar backing.

Reggae tracks include "Kisses Don't Lie" (a lover's rock beat); "Dem Haters" (again a slow beat); "Break It Off" (an energetic dancehall track with red hot Sean Paul - great track); "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" (slow jam, not the Queen song); "Selfish Girl" (another slow one); and a remix of "If It's Lovin' That You Want" from the first album.

A reasonably good follow up to "Music of the Sun", but too heavy on the ballads which I don't think are her strongest area. A few more of her trademark Dancehall tracks would have made this a much better album.

Rihanna's Sophomore CD, A Girl Like Me, proves her as more of a talented Artist than we thought she was with her first CD, Music of the Sun. On this new set Rihanna showcases more mellow vocals, reminiscent of her Idol Beyonce Knowles, but miles away from her vocally, but still very impressive, Overal this album gets a 9/10 from me, so heres a review of all the songs.

1. SOS (10/10)- First single from the abum, nice pop beat and flavor to it. This song is doing very god on the charts, one of the outstanding songs on the album.

2. Kisses Don't Lie (7/10)- This song has great vocals, but the Rock type feel just doesnt grab my attention, like the other ones, so this is not a favorite of mine.

3. Unfaithful (8.5/10)- Her 2nd single written by Ne-Yo, has a nice pop ballad feel to it. Not Outstanding, but it does have great lyrics and delivers a good vocal performance, not my favorite on the album though.

4. We Ride (10/10)- THIS IS IT!!!!!1 ONE OF THE BEST SONGS ON THE ALBUM...COMPLETELY OUTSTANDING!!!!!! IT SOUNDS LIKE A BRIAN MICHAEL COX PRODUCTION, THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN HER NEXT SINGLE, IT HAS A STRAIGHT RADIO FRIENDLY R&B/POP MIXTURE. DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

5. Dem Haters (9/10)- I like this song alot! it has a great reggae beat to it, and she delivers good lyrics in it about her haters and people who said she wasnt gon make it.

6. Final Goodbye (8/10)- Nice mellow ballad...very deep lyrics, didnt grab my attention at first, but as I begin to listen, it grew on me.

7. Break It Off (9/10)- Nice reggae club song, could be a great dance track for those who like to reggae dance.....Rihanna's vocals on here are sooooooo good also. I love this girls voice for some reason

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SECOND ALBUM. Something forever one. April 25, 2006
By Bhill
Format:Audio CD
Rihanna's back, and shows that she's here to STAY. The entire album is great. I first heard it online, and i was like yeah Rihanna is doing her thing once again. The album is filled with great ballads and i love it's for its diversity. There is a song on it for everyone.

Heres the song Break Down.

1) SOS- Whats left to say, excellent song, brillant move Def

Jam for making it the first singl--10/10

2) Kisses Dont Lie- I didn't like this osng at first, i was

like it sounds, just plain weird, but if

you actuallyLISTEN, to the lyrics you'll

fall in love with it.Nice mix of Reggea

and Rock--9/10

3) Unfaithful- thumbs up to my boy NE-YO superio lyrics,

Rihanna's still developing voice flows PERFECTLY

With the beat. The overall production was great.

10/10

4) We Ride- This was also another great song,lyrically,vocally,

and production wise. I can actually hear this being

turned up in peoples car this Summer. 10/10

5) Dem Haters- STRAIGHT UP REGGAE,IF YOU DONT LIKE REGGAE,THEN

THIS ONE AINT FOR YOU. But i loved it, this song

should be played at a loud volume when people are

hatin' on you. 9/10

6) Final Goodbye- It's a really sad song, it has some nice

lyrics nd the beat it's cool and slow. 9/10

7) Break it Off- For Best dance collaboration, this song has

the title both lyrically & vocally Rihanna

brings IT and Sean just spices the song up,

RECOMMENED 3rd single, for this SUMMER..

8) Crazy little thing called love- Like "Kisses Dont Lie" i was

like Uhh.

Rihanna is unfaithful!!!I'm the guy she's talking about in her...
And I thought that she was alluding to Jay Z. Isn't Beyonce's song "Ring The Alarm" and all her craziness on video and on the VMA's all about sending both Jay and Rihanna a message that she will go postal on their @$$#$ if she "catch another chick [Jay's] your arm"?

torture music!!
jealous people....ever think that if she really couldn't sing she'd be given so much attention and her cds wouldn't sell as much as they do? ever wonder why? because she can sing and if i had a vote, believe me, you'd see that you're horribly mistaken for someone else, perhaps yourself, maybe?
