Music Review: Unapologetic

Rihanna's new album, Unapologetic is the first album I bought and downloaded from iTunes. She is indeed consistent in her style of music. The beat of RnB, dance, pop and some electronic music are intact in this album. Her seventh studio album comprises of possible hits in the future. It was no surprise that she was able to top the Billboard Hot 100 (for the song 'Diamonds') and Billboard 200 (her first time) at the same time. Collaborations with Eminem, David Guetta, Future, Mikky Ekko and Chris Brown added some spice on this album. 

One commendable song from the album is "Stay" on which she sang by the piano, indeed a lovely song. On the song "Nobody's Business" with ex-flame Chris Brown, she showed her great expressions and reminder for all of us that she can't be dictated and pressured when it comes to love, so let's give it to her. Besides, the song isn't bad at all and it was kind of catchy. "Right Now", a song with David Guetta can be a huge dance hit and can be a hit single. My favorite tracks in the record are "Loveeee Song", "Love without Tragedy/Mother Mary" and "No Love Allowed". But I feel that there is something missing in the album. The dance tunes are lesser and there are some moments that her voice was vulnerable and not at its best. Nevertheless, the singer from Barbados stayed true to her music religion. Though some songs are not that really entertaining, some of them are still well defined and arranged.

It is still a fun and addictive album that once you started listening to it, you will still enjoy it even after 20 plays. Last time I heard, there is a plan of doing world tour (Diamonds World Tour) to promote and support the album which will start on March 2013 (hoping there will be a show here in Dubai).
