New Albums: Rihanna and Pink
Rihanna – Loud
I had heard rumors a few months ago that this album, Loud, was supposed to be the one that contains 11 top-10 hits for Rihanna (there are 11 songs total on the album, so the whole album is one giant hit-list). I have to say, at least so far, I agree that there is the potential for this to be a gigantic record.
So far, too, that prediction seems to be accurate. The first single off the album, “Only Girl (In The World)” peaked at #2 on the Billboard charts, and the second (current) single off the album, “What’s My Name?” which features Drake, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
Next up as a single is “S&M,” which I do think has the potential to be yet another top-10 hit. All 11 tracks are great, though. They seem to be back on par with Rihanna’s monster hit album Good Girl Gone Bad, which contained hits like “Umbrella,” “Disturbia,” and “Take A Bow.” Check out Loud today!
Pink – Greatest Hits…So Far!!!
It doesn’t seem as if Pink has been around long enough to have a greatest hits album already, but then when you look back on her career, you realize, Oh..she has had a lot of hit songs! So now it’s nice to have them all on one little compilation album.
The new album contains 18 songs, but 2 of them are brand new, including her latest hit, “Raise Your Glass.” The other 16 tracks on the album are all extremely recognizable, including “Get The Party Started,” “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” “U + Ur Hand,” and “So What,” along with a lot of others.
If you like Pink, then you’d be very happy with this greatest hits album. It has all of her hits in one spot, plus 2 new good tracks. How can you go wrong?
