    The snippets sound terrible. The only song I like is “Half of Me,” which was worked on by Emeli Sande and Adele. I don’t hear one stand-out hit from the album. 
    I also cannot believe that “Diamonds” is doing well. What is the appeal?

    Yeah, none of the clips really sound appealing to me. Of course, I’ve become less and less interested in her music since Rated R. Although I must say that Diamonds is REALLY growing on me.

    This sounds like Rated R Part II.

    Why does Michael Jackson have a writing credit on “Nobody’s Business”?

    The first 9 tracks seem to be utterly forgettable. And of course she had to jump on the dub-step train…
    But starting with the disco-reminiscent “Nobody’s Business”, which I assume features some MJ lyrics, hence the writing credit, I liked the snippets. I liked the violins on “Get It Over With” in particular. It’s a darker, moodier side of Rihanna and the Rated R parallels are obvious. But Rated R was also her creative peak, and I doubt she reaches that level again considering the mediocreness of the first 9 tracks, save “Diamonds”. I don’t think the full versions will change much about the perception of the overall quality of the album.

    I’m sorry, but I cannot stand the way Riri pronounces the word “business” in “Nobody’s Business.”

    Funny, listening to the first 5 tracks (save “Diamonds”), I was ready to write off this album. “Phresh Off The Runway”, “Numb”, “Pour It Up”, and “Loveeeee Song” sound pretty terrible.  Intense, rough music that is going to put off a lot of listeners…but then it gets WAY better from track 6 on.  
    I would assume “Right Now” will be her next single, and “Jump” will be in the mix too.

    “What Now” and “Stay” sound like great ballads.  
    “Nobody’s Business” has a great MJ feel (who apparently has a writing credit), “Love Without Tragedy / Mother Mary” sounds like a solid epic song, and “Half Of Me” sounds like a great self-reflective closer.

    Definitely sounds like a mixed bag album. I’m interested to hear it in its entirety.

    The tracks I found interesting were: “Numb”, “Jump”, “What Now”, “Stay”, Nobody’s Business”, “Love Without Tragedy”, “No Love Allowed” and “Lost In Paradise”. I agree that the second half sounds much stronger than the first so far.

    And I think people here must have Stockholm Syndrome with Emeli Sande, because I honestly don’t see the big deal with “Half of Me”. In fact, I think it sounds like one of Rihanna’s most generic ballads usually do. Maybe I’ll change my mind once I hear th full song, but I didn’t find the snippet very promising.

    Max is probably very happy right now: both Rihanna and Adele are in the top 3 of iTunes. “Diamonds” is at #2 and “Skyfall” at #3.

    I wonder if this means Rihanna can actually pull off being #1 on the Hot 100 this week? She seems to be selling quite well.

    Yes, yes I am. I can’t believe this is real. (Okay, that’s too much). But I am very happy. RiRi & Adele. My two top bitches, Holla! I don’t think she’ll hit #1 week. I think it will go up to #3 or #2, and then next week finally reach the penthouse. But who knows? Strangers things have happened in the Hot 100.

    Rihanna is now #1 on iTunes with “Diamonds”. I feel she might actually dethrone Maroon 5 this week.

    What?! Bitch be shining bright! SNL and the video were great aid. I was starting to doubt whether she was going to reach #1 on iTunes.
