    “I can’t say when I’m going to drop, but I am very aggressively working on music. I feel like I have no boundaries. I’ve done everything – I’ve done all the hits, I’ve tried every genre, now I’m just wide open. I can make anything I want.”

    — Rihanna on R9 to British VOGUE

     

    Genre: Reggae/pop/edm (?)

    What do we know so far??

    While I do not consider the albums you listed to have any creative risk ,  I agree w the rest and I’m perched to see if Riri will take an ANTi-esque risk again

     

    ANTi is such a modern classic and once in a lifetime record

    Honey, your precious racist Camila has NOT taken any creative risks with her music.

    Rihanna has grown on me.  I’ll take her over all of the bullshit that’s been released this cycle.  I like that she pulled an Adele and hasn’t released an album in four years.

    Rihanna is a legend and she will have a similar career to Madonna and Mariah Carey.

    Probably or not the last one to have that longevity of success in music career.
    The Others that will do from all of female artists will be Gaga and Ariana.

    I feel like Rihanna is the only artist who ever came close to Whitney Houston’s global superstardom. They both have enjoyed the goodwill of GP like no other. “GP artists” and icons in every sense.

    ANTI is an average album, it’s has a couple of amazing tracks, but terrible deep cuts. Loud is my favorite Rihanna album but that’s a personal preference. Rihanna is not an “album” artist, just releases some amazing singles.

    Albums of the Year:
    2020: After Hours (RU: folklore)
    2019: Titanic Rising (RU: Charli)
    2018: OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN-INSIDES (RU: You Won’t Get What You Want)
    2017: Saturation Trilogy (RU: Melodrama)
    2016: Blonde (RU: Blackstar)

    2020 favorite albums:
    1. after hours

    • Norman Fucking Rockwell
    • Melodrama
    • 21
    • My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
    • LEMONADE
    • House of Balloons

    Rihanna’s ANTI can’t be a classic album with songs like Work while having a cover of a Tame Impala that does not add anything to her album.

    Blonde, TPAB, Norman, meldodrama, golden hour etc are NOT modern classics outside the lgbtq world. The definition of “modern classic” is having longevity/standing rest of time while being artistically fresh and kindof rebellious/deviating from present sitch at the same time having universal appeal. That is what pushes it to “modern classic” status. ANTi is just that. With good recurrent streams and palpable impact on post 2016 releases (look at the style shift) , ANTi is a modern classic in every sense. It’s impact will be evident 20 years from now while the albums you listed will be forgotten (only remembered as those artists’ magnum opuses, learn the difference)

    Singles artist = Jason DeRulo, Pitbull, & Flo Rida Rihanna has created a catalog of music that will stand the test of time. There’s a reason ANTI is the longest charting album by a Black Female artist in history 😉 GGGB & Loud are 2 of the biggest selling WW albums of the past 10 years. 😉 Some of the records you mentioned (I.e. Norman Flopping Rockwood) haven’t even been around long enough to categorize as “classics”. Blonde? That record came & went. Channel Orange feels more special than that snooze fest of an album. That’s only because Frank Ocean came ou…nevermind.

    ahaha the nerve to talk crap about Blonde ahaha, but anyways quality over quantity. In 50 years, Rihanna will be know for her singles, not her album rollout. Of course her albums are going to do well, she’s a pop star. She does not create quality albums, she stole someone’s song and didn’t at least make it her own or change the progression of the song, while also creating a song that people cannot understand at all. And I like Work, but it’s not good.

     

    I really don’t care about sales, Frank Ocean is way superior than Rihanna anyday quality-wise. Frank being queer has nothing to do with the quality of the album. The sound pallet is idiosyncratic. The lyrics are crisp. He created a moody album that we will won’t probably hear in a long time.

    Don’t get me wrong Rihanna released many good songs on Anti: Deseperato, Kiss It Better, Need It Better, Higher, and Love on the Brain. The rest feel ehh or boring. Have you heard Woo or Work? Terrible. I will never forgive Rihanna for ripping off Same Old Mistakes by Tame Impala, probably one of my favorite outros of the 2010s.
