Via PopInsider: Today I flew to London to hear the album listening party of “LOUD!”. Rihanna’s fourth studio album. This album is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. It’s something out of this world and it could easily be #1 on the billboard album charts. It deserves to get a lot of attention and respect as it is Rihanna’s best album to date and one of the best albums if not this year, but the last 5 years. I am going to list my 5 favorite songs on the album + ratings.
5. Raining Men featuring Nicki Minaj
The song is not necessary to be featured on Loud! It would fit so good on a mixtape or just an unreleased track. Although it has hit written all over it, I think it isn’t what we all expected. I knew there would be an Minaj feature for awhile now and I’ve been very excited about it. The thing is if you release a song with Nicki at this point… it almost makes your look like your crying for a #1. The song is way to catchy and soon as Loud! leaks it will be the song (like it or not) that get’s stuck in your head.
