About the Album:
If nothing else, it has been an eventful and eye opening year for Barbados born songstress Rihanna. In addition to recording one of the most popular singles of 2005, the hypnotic 'Pon De Replay' (which bass bumped out of more car windows while igniting a slew of barbeques last summer), she won over the masses with her charming Bajan persona. But Robyn Rihanna Fenty is ready to do it all again with her sophomore release 'A Girl Like Me'.
Dropping from the harmonic heavens to the groovalistic dance floor, Rihanna has returned with another single that will have listeners begging the d.j. to play it one more time. Produced by Jason Rotem, the sizzling 'S.O.S.' is bringing the summer heat early this year. With its hypnotic beat and enticing melody, 'S.O.S.' utilizes the electro-funk of Soft Cell's '80s classic 'Tainted Love' to create a soulful anthem of young love.
Focusing on progressing as an artist, Rihanna has recorded a compelling track of heartbreak called 'Unfaithful'. Penned by her label-mate Ne-Yo and Stargate, the song documents the tragic decay of a relationship when another person starts cheating. Perhaps the most surprising track is the rock meets island vibe of 'Kisses Don't Lie'. Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken, the principles of her production company, SRP, used a mixture of Caribbean elements, electric guitar and a mesmerizing bassline. With 'A Girl Like Me', the beautiful singer proves that her breakthrough was no fluke. After selling 1 million copies worldwide of her debut 'Music Of The Sun', once again, the summer belongs to Rihanna.
