    Album Analysis and Content Album Analysis and Content Document Transcript

    • Album Covers AnalysisAfter observing a collection ofRihanna album digipak’s I noticedsome trends and similarities, suchas the use of colour, Rihanna seemsto favour a dark colour scheme towith her album art work, (except forloud) this may be to symbolize oremphasise on the bad girl (sexy yetgothic) image she is trying toconvey. Rihanna also tend to varyher shot types between the back andthe front of the album, for example,in Rated R, Loud and talk that talk,the album covers are all close-ups ofher face, but the back of the albumcovers, show fuller body shots ofher. Rihanna also seem to neglect toput her name on her more recentlyrealised album covers, not since herfirst worldwide major hit record(good girl gone bad) has Rihannaput her name on the cover of heralbum, instead she seems to likeusing a R symbol she has created asan iconic symbol to represent hername as a brand.
    • Unapologetic AnalysisThis cover and artworkexpresses herpersonality in a veryconfident mannerIt’s controversial as sheis technically nude, buteye-catching andmatches the bad girlimage Rihanna tries todeliverThis cover seems to be aimed at both male and female audiences becauseshe is naked yet showing the female body in a justified and artistic way thatalmost feel like an attempt to empower a female form, yet the fierce andmesmerising pose mesmerises and seduces the audience’s attention to herattractivenessThe entire digipak is extremely unconventional and slightly controversial, butthis adds to the effectiveness of it, as it provides conventions with itsdistinctive and influential images, that give her a real, honest and natural yetglamorous look to Rihanna, which allows her to have a deeper connectionwith her audience through her album artwork, rather than just randomdecoration on the digipak.

    • Interview and ReviewRihanna explains album title ‘Unapologetic’"I named my album Unapologetic because there is only one truth, and you cantapologise for that," Rihanna told WWD."Its honest. Im always evolving of course. I think the only motto I have is to be trueto myself."Unapologetic features lead single Diamonds and Nobodys Business, a duet withformer boyfriend Chris Brown.Speaking about Nobodys Business, Rihanna said: "Nobodys Business is basicallythe way I look at everything regarding my personal life. You know, even though youhave to witness it as being documented at every second, it still is mine... this is mineat this point."When it gets to my music and stuff like that, I will give and Ill give and Ill give, andI feel like I just need to keep a little bit for me that I get to decide."Billboard Hot 100 ReviewOn paper, Rihanna releasing her seventh album in seven years would suggest aquantity-over-quality work ethic thats bound to wear thin. But on "Unapologetic,"Rihanna proves once again that she can set -- and often raise -- the bar for modernpop music.Amping up on urban, dubstep-leaning R&B and scaling back on the often awkwardsex jams that populated the second half of 2011s "Talk That Talk," "Unapologetic" isRihannas most confident, emotionally resonant work since 2009s "Rated R."Theres hard-hitting club songs ("Phresh Out The Runway," "Pour It Up," theGinuwine-sampling "Jump"), feel-good dance jams (David Guetta-produced "RightNow," Chris Brown duet "Nobodys Business") and a surprising abundance ofheartfelt ballads (lead single "Diamonds," "Stay" featuring MikkyEkko, theconfessional suite "Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary" and bonus track "Half OfMe"), all of which showcase Rihannas voice in ways the listener hasnt heard before.Like previous Rihanna projects, "Unapologetic" is destined to crank out at leastfive singles over the next 12 months (or until its time for the next album, anyway).
