Rihanna – Talk That Talk

No grass grows underneath this lassie’s feet. As soon as she came off her world tour for her last album it seemed like new music was being released. Young people have a lot of energy. Talk That Talk is a return to the club beats of her early music. Couple with an improving voice (or maybe my tolerance for it has built up over the years) and raunchy lyrics this album should be another in the string of megahits for Rihanna. The first single “We Found Love” is already a massive his all over the world. The songs are all fairly upbeat with a mix of funk, R&B, soul, and pop music. There is the occasional down tempo number like “Farewell” that just seems to kill the mood she has succeeded in building up for me. Her mentor, Jay-Z, is back on one track providing a rap section.  It is not his best work. Talk That Talk is filled with music catered to make you move. It might become the album of preference for me when I go to the gym.
