Rihanna Calls ‘Rated R’ Album ‘Classic,’ Is She Right ?

The pressure was on for Rihanna when recording what is now her fourth studio album. Coming off a mega hit album, titled “Good Girl Gone Bad,” and singles including “Umbrella,” “Rehab” and “Disturbia,” the singer had no choice but to step it up a notch. Now that “Rated R” is in the hands of people like you, Rihanna believes it is a “classic”. “We made a great album, which was my intention in the first place,” says Rihanna. “That makes this a classic album for me.” With singles like “Hard” and songs like “Rockstar 101,” Rihanna says the edginess makes “Rated R” a classic. “It’s very edgy. ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ was all about me at that point of my life. It had attitude and an edge and this next album takes it up a notch.” While “Rated R” is a classic in her eyes, Rihanna admits there is much more to do on its follow up. “I want to evolve and keep changing and I want my music to reflect that.” c:Contact Music
