Talk That Talk is the sixth studio album from Bajan superstar Rihanna, the follow-up to the phenomenal success of 2010's Loud. The album includes the single "We Found Love" featuring Calvin Harris (Rihanna's sixth UK Number 1 in five consecutive years, a record unequalled by any other female solo artist), as well as "You Da One" and the Jay-Z-featuring title track.
An artist experiencing diminishing returns since 2009’s startling reinvention album Rated R – from victim to victorious in one long-player – Rihanna’s latest can’t stop the rot that set in with the mixed messages of 2010’s Loud. Not that said set was poor – it just failed to match the pop highs of the Umbrella-packing Good Girl Gone Bad and Rated R’s darker tones. The tracks of sixth LP Talk That Talk make a lot of noise but move lethargically – familiar tropes surface in the lyrical content (sexy times being the core focus), and musically it’s a smorgasbord of European dance trends and contemporary RnB production, showy but soulless. Of course there are ballads, too – but after all the saucy front, the slowies feel utterly blunted.
The album begins at a low, the staccato vocal hooks of You Da One irritating rather than engaging. The squelchy, buzzing Where Have You Been is one of two productions from Calvin Harris – indicative of the mainstream dance scene of the UK and Europe making steady progression into the US RnB market. It’s an inoffensive pairing of building beats and sliced-and-diced vocals: to the right feet on the right dancefloor it’ll be manna itself manifested as an arms-in-the-air clubbing highlight. The second Harris hook-up, We Found Love, swells with fevered keys until it explodes, blinding neon like, all over its frenetic, repetitive chorus. It’s by-numbers fare from Harris, given edge by a quite deliberately provocative music video – just the 47 million YouTube views since mid-October.
A forgettable vocal from Jay-Z on the title-track foreshadows an awful exercise in quasi-erotic wordplay on Cockiness (Love It) and a wholly pointless minute-something in the company of star producer The-Dream, wasted on the boring profanities of Birthday Cake. At its halfway mark Talk That Talk takes a turn for the downbeat, the Beyoncé-style paean to perfect monogamy We All Want Love sitting awkwardly beside questionable sexual morals presented by earlier cuts. And Drunk on Love, for the second time in as many weeks release-wise after Rihanna’s guest slot on Drake’s Take Care, matches the Barbadian singer with a Jamie xx (Smith) production, the backing a slightly tweaked take on The xx’s Intro. It feels lazy, an impression that runs the course of this collection, which never convinces the listener that the artist on its cover is fully committed to the cause. On the commercial dubstep rumble of bonus track Red Lipstick, produced by Chase & Status, she sounds as if she phoned in her (again, drearily sexual) vocal five minutes after waking up.
In the recent past Rihanna exhibited a cool nonchalance; here, she’s trapped between playing the characters of a ruthless dominatrix and a docile sort willing to be putty in a boy’s hands. If the real Rihanna doesn’t stand up for her seventh LP, one has to wonder if she’ll ever find herself again.

Some may think it excessive, this being her sixth album. But she doesn't seem to be boring everyone quite yet, with her hits racing to the top of the charts. And it seems like there are more to come if "Talk That Talk" is anything to go by.
"You Da One" begins the album, and it instantly gives you a "Caribbean feel", and is vastly reminiscent of Rihannas early days. You will find it hard to get this track out of your head. 8/10
"Where have you been" is the album club banger. I predict a spring/summer release for this, and boy will it smash. This is the albums "Don't stop the music" and if you only listen to one song from the album make it this one. 10/10
"We found love" was the debut single for the album. It was the obvious choice, and clearly the best one with the worldwide success. 9/10
"Talk that Talk" is the albums only collaboration, which joins rihanna and Jay Z. The song may not be the next "umbrella" but it's a solid track, and I found myself with it on repeat for weeks. 9/10
"cockiness" is an even more sexed up (if that's even possible) version of S&M. It's fairly safe to say this won't be released as a single due to it not being very radio friendly. "Suck my cockiness lick my persuasion" rihanna sings, and the rest of the song have zero subtlety. However, I for one love these tracks, but if you prefer music that is not so sexually explicit, or you have have children listening, maybe best to hit the skip button. 10/10 (because I personally LOVE IT).
An interlude "birthday cake" follows.Read more ›
After the successful 'Loud' and its supporting tour you'd like she would take break......but no she return the amazing 'Talk That Talk'.
You Da One 8/10
Nice track to start off the album.It is chill song with a reggae vibe.
Where Have You Been 10/10
Probably my favourite song on the album it has awesome electronic beats.
We Found Love 10/10
The first single of the album.This is cool pop song with some electronic beats.
Talk That Talk ft Jay z 9/10
This is the third Rihanna and Jay Z collaboration but it's as good as the first (Umbrella).
This is a very sexual song but if you know Rihanna it's nothing new 😉,anyway awesome track.
Birthday Cake 7/10
This song so good, sexual but good but the thing that bugs me is that it's only ONE minute long!!!! I would've given the full version a 10.
We All Want Love 4/10
In my opinion this is the weakest song on the album.Its just kind of bland.
Drunk On Love 10/10
When I first listened to this song I just didn't like it but now it's one of my favourites.It has the same message as we all want love but it's more uptempo and I like her vocals more on this
Roc Me Out 7/10
It's basically cockiness with different lyrics and song.But the beat is sick.
Watch N Learn 10/10
It's another sexual song but it is fantastic.This has a fresh beat and it gives out Caribbean vibes.
It's the perfect song end off the album.Too bad it wasn't the last track on the deluxe edition 😔.
Red Lipstick 8/10
Very electronic.It sound like something from 'Rated R'
Do Ya Thang 9/10
This is a very happy sounding song.No sex.No drugs.She is just singing about her lover.Read more ›
''You Da One'' - The album kicks off with one of the lesser songs, It's sugary sweet, but not in a good way. It's repetitive and soon gets very dull and boring, something you can't usually say about a Rihanna single. The fact that it's one of her only singles in recent times to not even hit the top 20 says it all.
''Where Have You Been'' - The second track is thankfully much more enjoyable, it has a mash of trance and dance-beats and electronic effects mixed with a strong vocal by Rihanna that make it almost perfect for club-play. Expect this one to be a single at some point in the future.
''We Found Love'' - Third is the album's first smash single, again with Calvin Harris, which is still hovering around the number 01 spot weeks after it's release. One of the best dance songs Rihanna has recorded, it's simple but infectious and the best song on the album by a long shot.
''Talk that Talk'' - The title track comes next, with Jay-Z making a guest appearance. The rap isn't exactly memorable, but it's bad either, and the song moves along nicely, while still not being quite what you'd expect from Rihanna.
''Cockiness (I love it)'' - Mixed feelings about this one. The beat is fantastic, frenetic and quite Beyonce-like, but the lyrics are a let down. They're sexual in an overly explicit way, and come across as just vulgar rather than sexy.Read more ›
