Rihanna's LOUD Album -- Exclusive Preview

Earlier this afternoon in the NYC office of chairman/CEO of Island Def Jam L.A. Reid, JustJared.com had the privilege and absolute pleasure of listening to Rihanna‘s new album, Loud. This will be the biggest album for the Bajan beauty yet — for sure!

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

Inside is a tracklisting of the nine songs we heard. Lots of island flavor, all Rihanna all the time.

Check it out!!!



Rihanna’s LOUD Album — Exclusive JustJared.com Preview

“S&M” – It’s definitely a club banger and the naughtiest song of all! Here are some of the sample lyrics as best I heard them: “I may be bad but I’m perfectly good… There’s sex in the air. I don’t care, I love the smell of it… Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me. I like it, come on, come on.”

“Only Girl (In The World)”: The whole room was dancing along! During the lyrics “hold me like a pillow,” L.A. gave himself a bear hug. Funny moment!

“What’s My Name?” – It’s the second single off of Loud – listen to a bit of the track here! “Oh nah nah, what’s my name? …Hey boy, I really wanna see if you can go downtown with a girl like me. Oh boy, I wanna really be with you, you’re just my type… You’re so amazing, you took the time to figure me out..”

“Cheers” – The song samples Avril Lavigne‘s “I’m With You” and is so unbelievably catchy! Avril’s “yeahh, yeahh, yeahhh, yeahhh” are prevalent throughout. This song will be so huge in clubs, bars, and everywhere that serves alcohol. Everybody will be raising a glass! Sample lyrics: “Don’t let the bastards get you down, turn it around with another round, there’s a party at the bar, everybody put your glasses up, and I drink to that! … Cheers to the freakin weekend, I drink to that. Everybody put your glasses up… Drinks on my mind and my mind on my money.”

“California King (Bed)” – A beautiful ballad! Lyrics include: “nose to nose, palm to palm, wrist to wrist, toe to toe…Feels like more than distance between us. In this California king bed, we’re 10,000 miles apart. I’ll be California wishing on the stars, my California king.” It’s L.A.‘s favorite song off the album!

“Raining Men” – The fast and uptempo song features Nicki Minaj! There isn’t much of a chorus, but the song features a variation of the popular children’s phrase “eenie meenie miney mo”.

“Who’s That Chick” – Used for a Doritos ad – read more about the song here. There are two videos for this track!

“Fading Away” - A beautiful ballad that likely references her relationship with Chris Brown. The song includes the lines, “Ready for change, baby, Open up my eyes and finally realize you’re fading away. Too late… Running your mouth. So fed up, don’t press your luck today. What’s a girl to do when she’s crying inside?”

“Man Down” – The song starts off with sirens and sounds like a metaphor for deadening a relationship. Lyrics include: “I pulled out my gun… Ra pum pum pum pum. Oh mama, mama, mama, I just shot a man down in central station. Never thought I’d do it. Whatever ever happened to me. Why did I pull the trigger. What am I gonna do?”

Can’t wait for everyone to hear!!

  • AJ

    I’ve seen that IMVU ad so many times and I had just realised that it was Rihanna! Certainly doesn’t look like her. Wouldn’t have known that that avatar was Rihanna if it wasn’t throwing itself in a Rihanna article. Can’t wait for the album though! Great follow up from “Rated R”.

    CANT WAIT.

    Rihanna is AWESOME. One of the Most versatile, original pop artist of our time!

    Rated R def set her apart from the rest, and GGGB was great, the start of most pop sounds today.

    Im Sure Loud wont disappoint and i cant wait.

    Plus STFU to the individual above, Plenty of artist release albums a year apart… can name plenty of today includ Gaga and Beiber, and from the past including Prince and Dolly Parton.

    “Earlier this afternoon in the NYC office of chairman/CEO of Island Def Jam L.A. Reid, JustJared.com had the privilege and absolute pleasure of listening to Rihanna’s new album, Loud.”

    Thanks for removing all doubt as to your bias towards this celebrity, JJ.
    It’s just a strange coincidence that you post about her 10 times a day.

  • shannonLeslie

    I thought she did a song with Drake….guess it didn’t make the album…..:S would have liked to see them shoot a video together BUT i’m excited for the new album as usual….:)

  • End Story

    So, to make a long story short, Just Jared stopped by L.A. Reid’s office today to pick up his monthly paycheck. An intern played him some tracks from Rihanna’s upcoming album which he raced back to his office to plug.

    End Story

  • two dollars

    Is this site supposed to be Just Jared or Just Rihanna?
    She gets more coverage than even Angelina Jolie.

  • nyro

    it doesn’t matter what she “sings.” they’ll auto tune the shit out of it and it will sound like all her other songs.

  • Pili

    Raning Men? srsly? can there be more hints to the Illuminati?

  • Wilson

    She suffers from early, onset female pattern baldness.

  • chase

    thanks for the great preview jared! albums gonna be crazy… very excited, and i’m not usually a rihanna fan.

  • Wilson

    She should speak out about it. She could help a lot of women.

  • G

    GROSS…DJ RONALDMCDONALD..TRANNY

  • Riley

    Why is she even still singing abt Chris? Like move on…he ain’t thinking abt you boo.

  • NICKY

    LMAO @ JON, LALA AND THE HATERS

    DON’T WORRY YOU BITTER BITCHES!!!!

    YOU’LL BE CRYING WHEN SHE STACKS UP MORE MILLIONS OF RECORD SALES AND #1 HITS

    STAY MAD !!!!

  • Next

    Rihanna is over expose, didn’t she just release a album this year. she need o go away . she is totally copying GAGA style. This record with flop just like her other albums. All she has is cathcy songs thank to producers.

  • Riley

    OMG Nicky, your delusional freak. Is it that you stalk all these blogs and post garbage in caps??

    Aint nobody mad boo. I stand for Queen BEY, you think Im mad?? When one of her albums does 485 first week, call me.

    :)

  • Too Damn Bad…

    She needs to stop milking that sh*t. Like really stop throwing shade. Move on with your cabbage patch looking a**. It’s over, move over and talk about that non baseball playing Grandpa your funky butt is with and that awful cake you gave him from your heart. psssh

  • Alextricity

    this album will flop?? rihanna doesnt know a what a flop album is..
    rated r has gone triple platinum worldwide its the tenth bestselling album this year which is better then expected for her dark ass album.. and rihanna been doing this before anyone knew wtf a lady gaga was so gtfoh with that too.. im excited for the album and only girl is my song of the moment :)
    oh and to the person bout queen bey selling 485k a week or whatever ummm really doesnt matter how much you sell the first week when by the end of year you’re outsold by everyone else.. example?
    Good Girl Gone Bad 170k first week.. B-Day i think it was 500k dont remeber but nonetheless by the end of the year who outsold who… I believe QUEEN RI outsold her with all the hate in the world.. :) keep your day jobs

  • Alextricity

    @Jon: cant suck to bad shes deuting at #1 all over the world

  • Alextricity

    @Too Damn Bad…:

    wow your ignorance is astounding.. bet you aint complaining bout his song duecez which obviously has something to do with rihanna and the other 7 tracks on flop as grafitti that has to do with rihanna #fail

  • Lonny

    Is she a bad girl, a good girl, or a kinky girl. Is she upbeat or punk rock. I’m confused.
    She has great lyrics and great production though so I’m ready to hear it.

    But since people cloud every Chris Brown post with her name, let’s do it in reverse.

    When is she going to apologize? Female to male domestic violence is wrong and she’s sending a message that girls can do whatever because men must be nonhuman in resisting defense and opposition.

    She’s a violent person and to think she has no culpability is infantilizing. She didn’t deserve to be injured but he didn’t deserve his life put at risk by her attacking him while he was driving. Even she admitted that he tried to put her out the car first. Ugh.

    I’m not ready to buy music from this perpetrator.

  • Bajan Pride

    Guys for those haters it’s only one cure – Rihanna will continue to kill them with her success. No matter how hard they try to pull her down she rises above their hate. – We need to be more like her and let their hate work against them. We will ignore ‘ignorance and idiots’. Focus on getting Rihanna to #1. Their plan is to distract us from this goal with all the petty arguments when we should be busy requesting and buying. Don’t answer their comments pretend they don’t exist and move on to write your comment.

  • Kee

    there’s only 9 songs? i hope more will be added soon. lol so far it sounds like an interesting album. cant wait for it to come out

  • Bobby

    Love the haters. You can hate all you want but when you post the comments it just gives it more promotion. I have some artists too but I don’t go searching for new stories on them. :) Idiots.

    Can’t wait for the cd!

  • Ava

    LOL @ her still singing about Chris…..bitch move on. I thought she was so happy & “in love” with Matt Kemp. That relationship is a fraud. There are pictures of her all up in Drake’s face from the other night, who wants to bet he smashed? Who hangs out with an ex when they got a man?

  • NICKY

    HATERS YOU READY FOR ONLY GIRL WORLD DOMINATION????

    YOU READY FOR THE MULTI MILLION LOUD SELLER????

    YOU READY FOR THE 200 MILLION DOLLAR BUDGET MOVIE????

    YOU READY FOR HER NEW CLOTHING LINE AND ENDORSEMENTS????

    HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHA I FEEL SORRY FOR THE HATERS HAHAHAHAHAHHA IT FEELS GOOD TO BE A RIHANNA FAN!!!!!

    RIHANNA IS ABOUT TO REIGN ON THESE WACK BITCHES IN THE GAME!!!!! KISSES!!

  • NICKY

    Her domination will last until Beyonce comes back and shows what real talent is, something Rihanna doesn’t possess.

  • http://rebel_one/twitter.com laurab

    Alextricity- You’re offended? How old are you, captain save a ho? Are you on the payroll?

    haha-What are you going to do @ me to death? lmao I’ll make sure my next comment about her will be as equally dastardly so that you’ll stay employed.

    Get ready for my next comment about Raggedy Rhi, I will write it with a vengeance for you. In the meantime-go dive for Chris Brown n^ts, astound that.
