Little Miss Sunshine, Robyn Rihanna Fenty, known more popularly as Rihanna has put out 3 albums in the past 3 years. With all the popularity and the success she has garnered from her single featuring her labelmate and president, Jay-Z entitled “Umbrella,” Rihanna has solidified herself as a crossover pop artist. She’s known throughout the world and has really put her foot forward into proving that she’s got staying power. And as I’ve predicted, Rihanna has for the most part, fully dropped the dancehall influence in her music, all but one and a half tracks. Although “Good Girl Gone Bad” is far from flawless, it has shown that Rihanna is trying to touch some different aspects of different kinds of music, so that she doesn’t have to be stuck in the typical R&B box. She pulls from a lot of different sounds to make an album that, like I said, is not perfect, but it’s consistent.
