Review - Rihanna Unaplogetic

Unapologetic is Rihanna's seventh studio album.  She pumps out albums like she's running out of time!  That is seven albums in seven years.  And every one is a little bit different.  Rihanna is anything but safe, that's for sure!  There are songs on this record that have rap breaks, others that are electronic-heavy, ballads, love songs, you name it!  Also, a couple of songs feature some pretty recognizable samples.  Like, "Jump" you can hear part of Ginuwine's "Pony" and in her duet with Chris Brown "Nobody's Business" she samples "The Way You Make Me Feel" by MJ. (Don't get me started on this pairing!  The song is super catchy, I just have such a hard time with their history.  Yes, I don't know them, but still.) Speaking of duets, not only is her ex/current boyfriend Chris on the album, there are also appearances by Eminem, Future, David Guetta and Mikky Ekko.  I love that Rihanna tries something new every time, but sticks to a bit of the same formula with that fabulous voice of her's.  She pushes the envelope on Unapologetic.  I am liking the album the more I listen to it.  Some of it might surprise you, harder than the past, but it's still our ole faithful RiRi :)
