Rihanna torna a fare rumore con Loud.

Il 12 ottobre 2010 Rihanna pubblica il suo quinto album Loud la cui uscita è stata anticipata a settembre dal single Only girl in the world.


Rihanna non è stata lontana dal panorama musicale mondiale, dal momento che il suo penultimo album Rated R è stato pubblicato il 23 novembre del 2009.
E’ il caso di dire che la cantante barbadiana è una vera macchina musicale.
I dubbi della critica sono molti, sarà davvero un album di qualità o una scarsa pubblicazione musicale?

Andiamo subito a scoprirlo…

Only girl (In the world) [Mixin Marc & Tony Svejda Mix Show edit]

A differenza di Rated R la nuova pubblicazione Loud presenta una Rihanna molto più dance, elettronica, R&B. Forse questa scelta è stata influenzata dalla vicinanza con David Guetta, con cui ha lavorato per il video commerciale Who’s that Chick.

Il CD, in realtà, non presenta novità ed evoluzioni musicali, dal momento che le sonorità che vi dominano sono simili a quelle a cui ci aveva abituato la Rihanna dei primi tempi (Music of the sun, 2005).
Non mancano, però, delle canzoni piacevoli da ascoltare dalle melodie orecchiabili, dalle produzioni di spessore, dai beat trascinanti e dal timbro vocale particolare.
Meritano particolare attenzione la dance Only girl (in the world), di cui è fornito anche un remix; Fading, caratterizzata da un puro R&B; California King Bed, decisamente Pop e romanticamente nostalgica; la già famosa Love the way you lie (Part II) (Piano version) in cui la profonda voce di Rihanna, accompagnata dal piano, regala un magico e profondo momento di poesia.

Rihanna – Only girl in the world

Lyrics:

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

I want you to love me, like I’m a hot guy
Keep thinkin’ of me, doin’ what you like
So boy forget about the world cuz it’s gon’ be me and you tonight
I wanna make your bed for ya, then imma make you swallow your pride

Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world
Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love
Like I’m the only one who knows your heart
Only girl in the world…
Like I’m the only one that’s in command
Cuz I’m the only one who understands how to make you feel like a man
Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world
Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love
Like I’m the only one who knows your heart
Only one…

Want you to take me like a thief in the night
Hold me like a pillow, make me feel right
Baby I’ll tell you all my secrets that I’m keepin’, you can come inside
And when you enter, you ain’t leavin’, be my prisoner for the night

Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world
Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love
Like I’m the only one who knows your heart
Only girl in the world…
Like I’m the only one that’s in command
Cuz I’m the only one who understands, like I’m the only one who knows your heart, only one…

Take me for a ride
Oh baby, take me high
Let me make you first
Oh make it last all night
Take me for a ride
Oh baby, take me high
Let me make you first
Make it last all night

Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world
Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love
Like I’m the only one who knows your heart
Only girl in the world…
Like I’m the only one that’s in command
Cuz I’m the only one who understands how to make you feel like a man
Only girl in the world…
Girl in the world…
Only girl in the world…
Girl in the world…

Rihanna – Fading

Lyrics:

You say you love me
Well they feel like words to me
Well this just ain’t working
Stop thinking you can run over me
I’m drifting, I’m settling
Off to a foreign place
If I can’t see what’s in front of me
It’s a mystery, well then apparently

Things just ain’t the same
And I’m ready for change
Go on, begone, bye bye, so long
Can’t you see that you’re
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it’s too late
You’re fading away

Put a sock in it just stop running your mouth
Got my mind made up, I ain’t coming back again
No way, no way, no way, no way
‘Cuz I’m so fed up, boy you got me messed up
If you hit me back up, don’t press your luck today, today

I’m blowing you away

Things just ain’t the same
And I’m ready for change
Go on, begone, bye bye, so long
Can’t you see that you’re
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it’s too late
You’re fading away

So you turned into a ghost right in front of my eyes
Tell me what’s a girl to do when she’s crying inside?
I’m about to go and say
I’m jumping off this train
Whether wrong or right, I’ll be gone by night

Can’t you see that you’re
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it’s too late
You’re fading away

Rihanna – California King Bed

Lyrics

Chest to chest
Nose to nose
Palm to palm
We were always just that close
Wrist wrist
Toe to toe
Lips that just felt like the inside of a rose
So how come when I reach out my fingers
It feels more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We’re ten thousand miles apart
I bet California wishing on these stars of the heart for me
My California king

Eye to eye
Cheek to cheek
Side by side
You were sleeping next to me
Arm to arm
Dusk to dawn
With the curtains drawn
And a little last nite on these sheets
So how come when I reach out my fingers
It feels more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We’re ten thousand miles apart
I bet California wishing on these stars of the heart for me
My California king

Just when I felt like giving up on us
You turned around and gave me one last touch
That made everything feel better
And even then my eyes got better
So confused wanna ask you if you love me
But I dont wanna seem so weak
Maybe I’ve been California dreaming

In this California king bed
We’re ten thousand miles apart
I bet California wishing on these stars of the heart for me
My California king

In this California king bed
We’re ten thousand miles apart
I bet California wishing on these stars of the heart for me

My California king

Rihanna – Like the way you lie (Part II) (Piano version)

Lyrics:

On the first page of our story, the future seems so bright.
And this thing turned out so evil, I don’t know why I’m still surprised.
Even angels have their wicked schemes and you take death to new extremes.
But you’ll always be my hero, even though you lost your mind.

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn,
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts.
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry,
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie.
I love the way you lie.

Now this gravel in our voices, glass is shattered from the fight.
In this tug of war, you’ll always win, even when I’m right.
Cause you feed me fables from your hand,
With violet words and empty threats and it’s sick that all these battles are what keeps me satisfied.

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn,
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts.
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry,
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie.
Ohhh, I love the way you lie.

So maybe I’m a masochist
I try to run but I don’t wanna ever leave.
Til the walls are goin’ up in smoke with all our memories.

#STAY TWEETTUNED
