Why does Rihanna insist on grunting "yeh yeh yeh" in almost every song? Even when you think you're free from it for one song, it's hidden somewhere sneaky as if she is trademarking her work. Well Rihanna, perhaps it was the repetitive chants in Umbrella that punched me in the gentles but every time "ella ella" or "yeh yeh yeh" is moaned out of tune to fill in blanks, I feel like I'm being branded and cringe a little. "We Found Love" is the winner here. The rest will burn through the clubs one single at a time and the drunks won't even remember them.
Rihanna: "What's that? All the young ppl are listening to techno and house music? Oh...and the producers want me to put some of that in my music too? Whatever gets me popular with the night owls I guess..." Yeah, I can't get behind this, Loud at least had some innovative and catchy tunes (S&M, Only Girl), but here the only thing I actually got excited about was this tiny little snippet called "Birthday Cake" that finished after one minute as if to say "Oooohhh you were enjoying that? My baaaadddd". You're a joke Rihanna.
I'm almost about sick about every techno beat ever brought to the mainstream much like this album. Talk that Talk doesn't show anything interesting except for the ballad We All Want Love. I would enjoy Jay-Z's contribution to Talk that talk if Rihanna didn't have such bad vocals. The melodies are also not as memorable. Rihanna should be glad that she got this far but I think it's time to hang up the towel.
all i got to say is we found drugs in a coke-less place and cockiness she loves it.....seriously why you guy take it so serious about nowadays music ....come grow up and realize nowadays pop artist are just eye candy to entertain only two in biz can actually sing Rhianna and gaga but what? do they perform good songs.... nope 1 and every 5 song they make is good ....now if u guys wanna hear some dope ass , sexy, feetmoving, pop, go listening some 90s pop ..now thats real pop...i recommend Madonna,Crystal Waters, Lisa Stanfield , Suzanne Vega...yep thats shits tha shit
