Rihanna – Unapologetic

Freddie Matthews writes from London: Rihanna certainly isn’t the new kid on the block that she was when she first auditioned for Jay-Z and Def Jam recordings at the age of 16. 

Rihanna’s most successful album to date was her 2007 third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, with over 12 million sales.


The second half of Unapologetic however is edgy and not what we’re used to from Rihanna, but why should she not try something new? Here we have ballads, disco, reggae and even a defence of her former boyfriend Chris Brown who notoriously beat her up in 2009.
