New Release Music Tuesday

Welcome to our first Thanksgiving edition of New Release Music Tuesday. I hope everyone has had a great week and that this Holiday week is even better. I’m here to help you start this week with some new blazing music from Rihanna with her latest release titled Rated R.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February 20, 1988, better known as Rihanna, is a Barbadian-American recording artist and model. At the age of 16 Rihanna moved from her native country of Barbados to the United States to pursue her music career.

Her interest in singing began at around the age of seven. Her childhood was intensely affected by her father’s addiction to crack cocaine and parent’s rocky marriage, which ended when she was fourteen years old.

At the tender age of 15, she and two of her classmates formed a girl group. Her friend introduced her and the rest of the band to record producer Evan Rogers who was vacationing in Barbados in 2003.  As the group auditioned for Rogers, he  said “the minute Rihanna walked into the room, it was like the other two girls didn’t exist”.  Over the next year, Rihanna and her mom shuttled back and forth to Rogers home in Stamford, Connecticut.  Shortly after turning 16, she relocated in the United States and moved in with Rogers and his wife. Rihanna recorded a four-song demo with the help of Carl Sturken which included what would become her first hit, “Pon de Replay” to send to many recording labels.  Rihanna’s demo made its way to Def Jam, which invited her to audition for the label’s then-president, Jay-Z, who quickly signed her.

She then went on to release her international multi-platinum albums Music of the Sun (2005), A Girl Like Me (2006) and  Good Girl Gone Bad (2007).

Rihanna is now back with the release of her fourth studio album Rated R.  Known as a teen pop reggae singer since her debut in 2005 with a styles of pop, R&B and dancehall, this album has managed to stray away from that and show a more dark adult side of her.  Exposing the wide range of emotions and impulses that must have afflicted her after her breakup with Chris Brown. It is heavily influenced by the her rocky relationship with Brown, noted in songs like “Russian Roullete,” (first single) which expresses love as a lethal but consensually played pursuit, “Cold Case Love” with lyrics as “On my roof Dark and I’m burning of love I don’t need proof I’m torn apart and you know what you did to me was a crime Cold Case Love” and in “Last Song”, which depicts her finally moving on since the break up with Chris Brown.

My top two picks are:

Cold Case Love: My favorite song with searing electric guitar riff and classical violin strings.

Last Long:

Hopefully every one has enjoyed our first Thanksgiving edition of New Release Music Tuesday!  Don’t forget to leave us your thoughts in our comments section.  Have a great holiday and enjoy the rest of your week!
