    I like it!!!! Nothing is over the top it’s great! I have already pre-ordered from iTunes and I will happily go to target to pick up a CD for the car!!

  • ssssword

    …sooo mediocre….not worthy of the hype…..

  • Sammie

    Meh, I think I’m over her…..
    She took the low road and totally overexposed herself (in more ways than one)
    Now, She’s just another *eye roll* poptart

  • yves

    Pretty lame. I expected more after all the hype.

  • toots

    The execution is not bad but her voice is underwhelming.

  • asdf

    Girl needs to do something about her hair. It looks so dry that it’ll break off.

  • marissa

    :) like it

  • Max

    This was what the wait was for?
    Disappointing.

  • just asking

    Did Rihanna write any of these songs?

  • ghost

    Even Gaga kicks her ass these days.

  • princess

    She really needs the guest vocalist.
    It’s what props her up.

  • triumph

    Not a huge fan of the excerpts but I’d like to hear the full album instead of a sampler.

  • enoughalready

    Why not do the whole thing like Beyonce did? This was not enough to peak some ones curosity and that’s what they are hoping.. If you have that much faith in your girl label, release them all. Beyonce did and just about every single she released went plat except for Diva I think. Rihanna needs a long vacay home with her make believe family.. She went dark and she’s not coming back.. Another picture for this CD was released and she is still showing way too much skin. Rihanna let me give you some good advice; you’re not GAGA!

  • op

    i liked the song hard…but overall it sounds like they were trying too hard to make her hard, too hard to make her seem really strong and kick ass, sometimes it’s ok to seem hurt…i think that in the process she started believing more and more in her image, rather than her songs…maybe it was jay-z’s doing, that guy thinks he’s the genius of the new millenium because he’s able to rhyme things in interesting ways, and put beats against it…that whole crowd jay-z, kanye, and now rihanna i think believe their hype way too much. rihanna didn’t seem like that before, but maybe i’m wrong. i think they,, her team, focused too much on the rihanna brand, and when you start controlling your image too much, some things get left behind in the process, like interesting music. even with gaga, during her first album, every single song was a hit, and now when u listen to her new album, there are just a few good songs, like bad romance, and maybe dance in the dark…it’s because people start believing their hype/image way too much, and they can’t focus as much on the good music, because they’re focused too much on the former.

  • ebony

    Agree, need more to judge this on…will wait for the entire CD before I form a full opinion.

  • Jordan

    sit down rihanna

  • S*

    Im not really a fan of hers… but I liked these songs
    In my opinion…its her best album so far

    Althought, her voice is truly annoying..she’s defintely not Christina Aguilera or Mariah Carey..

  • West

    I think the songs are ok, she just doesn’t have a powerful set of pipes. Not everyone can be Whitney Houston though..not even Whitney’s Whitney anymore.

  • Rate It

    C- so far.

  • Adam

    If they gave me a free copy, I’d listen and maybe sell it on Ebay later.

    Stay strong, don’t let CB bring you down. Your album will rock!

  • Me and myself

THE SONGS R GOOD. SHE’S A BREATH OF FRESH AIR IN DIS AUTOTUNE MUSIC…..SHEESH backstreet boys

  • berry

    Rihanna is really doing herself a disservice by not writing her own material. She is going to feel the financial effect of this and kick herself.

  • GaGayess

    I like rude boy , te amo , russian roulette, hard , rockstar 101 does not sound bad, stupid in love, Photographs does not sound bad either. overall i was expecting something more better, they hyped this shit all up like it was going to be the best thing in the world. i was expecting more from rihanna shes six years in the music industry and she can’t even write a hot record thats a shame.

    The Chris brown single is better, me thinks!

  • lisa

    The Chris brown single is better, me thinks!

    Yep, everything he put out so far sounds better.

  • josephine

    looks like that plastic surgery junkie, joyce wildenstein

  • Maja
  • Terri

    Russian Roulette?? Serious? Rhianna claims she went through hell recently and is sending the wrong messege with this song! Wait until she gets a suicide letter from a kid and then maybe she will grow up.

    She needs to be showing how strong women are and how strong we can be when you go through what she when through. She is hiding from the situation and did not even do anything for women abuse month!

    She is only a product and cannot sing and everyone keeps saying how great she is!!

  • Jerome Lee

    Lady Gaga’s recycled album is going ot be much better..
    I loved Disturbia but does Rihanna have anything to do with the writing or creating of her songs? I saw on TV some “music analyst” talking about how Rihanna’s new video shows attitude and her raw artistic style, comparing her to Grace Jones.. I laughed.

  • Jerome

    Terri said it much better than me too :)
    Rihanna, thumbs down

  • http://www.matchpetlovers.com/ Vanessa Valentino

    I listened to the song and its not very good. She needs more pop tunes. – matchpetlovers.com

  • Mahalia Mayne

    To be honest i think this is going to be her best album to date. even though she doesnt write her songs. the songs are fire especiallly rockstar and photogrpahs. the only song i dont like so much is russian roulette and this song shouldnt of been her first single. but thumbs up to rhianna

  • jam
