If you were underwhelmed by Rihanna‘s first single, “Diamonds,” from her new album Unapologetic then here’s some good news – it does get better! Nearly two weeks before its release you can now preview snippets of the new album – and it’s sounding good.
This will be the Bajan popstar’s seventh studio album since her 2005 debut Music of the Sun, and on first listen it sounds like she’s really found her sound, taking on edgier and darker beats in the beginning with song content being quite cocky, strong and sexy. To please her existing fans, she still includes some slower and more radio-friendly songs, but experiments with the new EDM trend on tracks “Jump” and “Right Now.”
Boasting some great contributors including The Dream, Sia, Ester Dean and Stargate, as well as features from Eminem, Future, Chris Brown, Mikky Ekko and an interpolation of Ginuwine‘s “Pony,” the album will be out in stores November 19th – press play to preview below.
