Rihanna's LOUD Album -- Exclusive Preview

Earlier this afternoon in the NYC office of chairman/CEO of Island Def Jam L.A. Reid, 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!


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 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!!

rihanna sucks

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”.

# 6

# 7

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.

The above post was paid for by Def Jam Records.

Ok, now that we have that out of the way….we need an update on what Rihanna is having for dinner tonight.

“Earlier this afternoon in the NYC office of chairman/CEO of Island Def Jam L.A. Reid, 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 @ 09/29/2010 at 9:08 pm

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 @ 09/29/2010 at 9:09 pm

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.

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

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

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

She suffers from early, onset female pattern baldness.

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

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