Synopsis

Album Description
In one of the biggest jumps ever recorded in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Rihanna's newest single "Take A Bow" rockets from #53 to #1 this week. "Take A Bow" also debuts at #1-bullet on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs Chart with a phenomenal first week of 266,696 scans. The song was written by fellow Def Jam artist Ne-Yo and produced by Stargate, the same team responsible for Rihanna's "Unfaithful" (of 2006), and "Hate That I Love You," her Top 10 duet with Ne-Yo released late last year. "Take A Bow" raises the curtain on the upcoming new CD U.S.release of Rihanna's GOOD GIRL GONE BAD: RELOADED. The new configuration arrives in stores on June 17th - the week after the album officially marks its historic 52nd week on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The original 12-song CD version of GOOD GIRL GONE BAD - source of the non-stop string of hit singles that began with the MTV VMA and Grammy Award-winning global #1 hit "Umbrella" (featuring Jay-Z), then "Shut Up and Drive," "Hate That I Love You" (featur­ing Ne-Yo), and the current "Don't Stop the Music" - will now be augmented with three bonus tracks: 1) "Take A Bow"; 2) a cover version of Maroon 5's "If I Never See Your Face Again" (featur­ing Maroon 5); and 3) "Disturbia." GOOD GIRL GONE BAD (released June 5, 2007) was the third album release in less than two years by multi-platinum MTV VMA, Grammy, and American Music Award winning artist - and CoverGirl spokesperson - Rihanna. It followed-up 2006's RIAA platinum A Girl Like Me, containing the back-to-back hits, "S.O.S." and "Unfaithful"; and her RIAA gold debut from 2005, Music Of the Sun, featuring the worldwide smash, "Pon De Replay."

CD Reviews

Rihanna's new CD is the first R and B CD that I was ever int
Miriam Hope Brown | Sterling, VA | 10/16/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Generally, one buys a CD and only likes to listen to one or two tracks. With Rihanna's CD "Good Girl Gone Bad" every track is different and , I think sets a new genre for music. It crosses over from R and B to light rock. A great deal of thought was put into the order of the tracks. The lyrics are full of meaning. It is a compilation of love songs, angst and confusion. I am 48 and an old rock n' roller. This CD is a crossover for me. I would highly recommend this CD."
Catchy and successful, if shrill at times

"Pop superstar Rihanna's third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, was without a doubt her biggest CD yet. And the re-release of it, with three extra tracks, has been even more successful. Of course, there is no mystery as to why. The answer can be summed up in one word: "Disturbia". This jumpy tune, and its catchy synth beat, are taking the nation by storm at the moment--but the rest of the album (including the songs from last year) cannot be overlooked in "Disturbia"'s wake.

Overall this is a very solid pop/R&B album, with a mix of energetic dance tracks and wispy slow jams, and of course "Umbrella" which falls somewhere in between. "Question Existing" was one of her more emotional and interesting cuts, but it hasn't been released as a single yet, so not as many people can appreciate it. "Rehab" and the title track are the best ballads on the CD, along with "Take A Bow", which shot up to #1 on the charts early this past summer.

Rihanna herself has a very high voice which is capable of a decent belt, even if it may be a bit whiny. What is important is that it is identifiable and stands out. She collaborates here with Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, and Maroon 5 and has two tracks produced by the legendary Timbaland. These songs are standouts, and considering that she's only 20, it's an impressive lineup to be working with.

The album is far from perfect, mind you. There are a couple tracks ("Say It" and "Push Up On Me") that get pretty annoying and repetitive quickly and unfortunately they do bring the rest down a bit. There is also an excess of ballads all together, which becomes sluggish and boring even though the songs are good on their own.

Now that Rihanna is truly a superstar thanks to getting a new image and releasing this, her biggest album yet, here's hoping that she'll continue with the success, and hopefully learn to shed some of the more irritating aspects along the way."
A very good album with variation style she definitely sings
