Why You Should Buy Rated R

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The year was 2005.

Beyonce was by far the hottest in the game. She had achieved her lifelong dream of being a massive global superstar. She was snatching Grammys and hairpieces. Shutting down award stages around the world. She was having her "moment". She had the kind of career that your favorites can only dream about and, most importantly, she was getting dicked up on a regular basis.

Life was good.

Meanwhile, Beyonce's boyfriend, elderly rap legend Jay-Z, was not quite as happy. He had also achieved massive success in the music industry, but he was anxious to settle down, put a ring on it, and have about 3-4 babies with big-ass lips and oddly-shaped heads. But Beyonce was not interested. She was just starting to build an iconic career and a business empire and every time Jay would schedule a time to get Beyonce pregnant she would push it back like a Christina Milian album. 

It went something like this:

Jay: Hey, Beyonce it's 9PM, I thought we were going to try to have a baby tonight at 8?

Beyonce: Well, I was on my way to your house but I decided to stop in the studio to make an album. I promise as soon as I'm done making the album, shooting 30 videos, and going on tour, you can get me pregnant.

(5 months later.)

Jay: Hey, Beyonce am I still getting you pregnant tonight?

Beyonce: Well I was driving through the Checker's Drive Thru and I saw Kelly and Michelle working the window, and we started talking and one thing lead to another, and now we're in the studio making another Destiny's Child album. I promise, you can get me pregnant after the album, the re-release, the greatest hits, and 12-month world tour.

(12 months later)

Jay: Beyonce! Where are you?

Beyonce: Oh, I can't get pregnant right now, I'm shooting a movie.

Jay: How the fuck are you shooting a movie? I sent you to the store for some milk.

Beyonce: Well, I was on my way to the store but I saw some people shooting a movie, and I said, "I wanna be in it", so I asked them and they just wrote me into the movie in 3 minutes. I promise you can get me pregnant after the movie.


This continued for awhile and both Jay and his sperm started to get frustrated. Jay was getting desperate, and one day, after heavy thought and consideration, he decided it was time to put his wifey out of business. 

The goal was to find some vocally challenged, rhythmless, pretty young chicken nugget , dress her up, and surround her with a lot of loud music and bright colors to distract people from her lack of talent. He knew that some people would stan for anything with catchy songs and high heels, and all he needed was a bunch of geighs to latch on to her and it would a wrap. So while his little chicken nugget was killing the game, Beyonce would be flopping, and would have no other choice but to let him inseminate her.

He searched all throughout the United States for just the right girl for his plan, but came up short. LaFace had already snatched up Ciara and even he felt that signing one of the Destiny's Child's castoffs would be grimey.

Then one day TyTy told him about a girl in Barbados who was willing to do something strange for a little piece of change. So he hopped on a flight down to the island and when he was there he saw a young girl with the face of a model and the forehead of a Tweety Bird.

Jay-Z: Hello.

Rihanna: Ello.

Jay-Z: I heard you could sing. I've come down to hear you.

Rihanna: Well, I'm not really a serious singer, it's just something I do for fun. I have no formal vocal nor dance training, I've only sang in public once and it sucked musty balls. So I don't know if I have what it takes to be a superstar.

Jay-Z: Don't worry about that, I'll help you.

Rihanna: I don't know Mr. Jay-Z. I don't feel right about signing a record contract and taking up money and resources from artists on your label with actual talent. I don't know if I could be easy... 









with that....























Part.

Jay-Z: Don't worry. You need to be more confident. I have a feeling that everything will work out.

Rihanna: I still don't know Mr. Jay-Z. Isn't Beyonce your girlfriend? If I do become a superstar wouldn't I be your girlfriend's competition? I never saw Rene Elizando running around with Paula Abdul. And I damn sure never saw Bobby Brown running around with Anita Baker.  Don't you think  people will wonder why you are putting so much support  and time into your girl's competition? Beyonce is my idol and I don't want her to be mad at me, calling me and hanging up, and keying up my car and stuff...I just could not... be easy...with that...


(4 hours later)

...part.

Jay-Z: It's nothing like that. It's just business. What do you say? Can I make you a superstar?

Rihanna: I'm just not sure. I'm not really good on stage... What if I mess up? What if people laugh at me?

Then Jay gave Rihanna a gift which eased her worries. It was the gift that inspired her to sign a recording contract.  A gift that Rihanna kept near her wherever she went. The gift that made her realize that no matter how bad she sucked, somewhere in the world some group of tone-deaf tweens and queens would ALWAYS support her.

That gift was the Britney Spears - Live from Las Vegas DVD.

From there Rihanna was put through the Def Jam machine.They put gloss on her lips, designer dresses on her hips, swooped a bang over her Superdome, and gave her the best songs that money could buy and Beyonce didn't want. Although Rihanna had a few hits, she was not putting Beyonce out of business in quite the way Jay-Z had planned. Beyonce was still running around the world, touring, shooting movies, recording, and not getting pregnant. Rihanna was starting to blend into the rest of the Beyonceitis victims, and if her 3rd album was not a blockbuster she was in real danger of getting dropped from Def Jam and Roll Bouncing at Sonic's with Tierra Marie.

But one song changed that.

That song was "Umbrella". The song was a catchy mid-tempo number. The message of the song was no matter how bad things get in you life, you can fuck Rihanna silly whenever you want to and things will be better.

From that one song Rihanna became a worldwide sensation. From the strength of "Umbrella" and the accompanying video MTV proclaimed Rihanna "the new Queen of R&B."

People ignored the fact that Rihanna was not (nor was she trying to be) R&B. We didn't ask a lot of questions. We were just tired of Beyonce and we needed a female artist who was:

1. Black (or at least Black-ish)
2. Attractive
3. Talented,
4. NOT Beyonce.

Rihanna was 3 out of the 4 and that was good enough for us. Like Jiggaman we just wanted somebody to make Beyonce go away for awhile. And as a bonus, Beyonce stans hated Rihanna with a passion and for some people, getting Beyonce stans angry was reason enough to stan for Rihanna.

From a live performance aspect her performances were always elaborately staged and choreographed, but she looked and sounded bored. As if there were about 76 other things she'd rather be doing aside from performing. She didn't have much of a range, nor volume or pitch control. And on ballads she was determined NOT to hit any of the notes correctly.

But it didn't matter. Rihanna was SLAYING the game...if only theoretically.  She was a global superstar and a FIERCE fashion icon. It looked like Jay's dream was going to come true. Rihanna was dominating, and Beyonce would be put out of business long enough to hatch his offspring.

But on February 8, 2009 (dramatic pause) things went horribly wrong.

You know what happened, so I won't go too deeply into it. If you forgot I'll refresh your memory:

In the 9 months it has taken for the swelling to go down and for Rihanna to make sense of what happened to her, Beyonce has only gotten bigger. She refreshed her look and sound, embarked on her most succcessful tour yet, finally got people to take her semi-serious as an actress, and proved that she is one the most versatile performers of this time (or any time).

Who else can do this:


Do this:



And then turn around and do this:



And now there's a new terror for Rihanna and her stans to deal with:

And that brings us to "Rated R", Rihanna's 4th album in as many years.

It's a pretty good album, but then again so was "A Perfect World", "Afrodisiac", and "The Declaration." What people fail (or choose not to) consider is that there is a distinct difference between a bad album, a pretty good album, and the type of event album that lives up to the hype generated when stans claim that their favorite is about to "change the game".

In 20 years, when Rihanna is playing bingo casinos and judging American Idol, her big selling point will be "She was one of the biggest stars of the 2000's and had 5 #1 singles. If there were a relevant Rihanna fansite the motto would be "5 #1 Singles. You mad?"

So for an artist whose reputation has been derived from numbers and chart positioning "Rated R" could be seen as a big misstep, mainly because I was hard pressed to find 2 #1 singles off of the album, let alone 5. Def Jam has already played most of the album's strongest cards. They have sent 3 singles to radio, and radio sent them to Lady Gaga who wiped her ass with them.

This isn't a singles album. It's a concept album of sorts, everything blends together and there is an obvious sonic and thematic structure, sort of like a movie soundtrack. The problem is neither the concept nor the execution on record, it's the issue of executing them on stage. On "Good Girl Gone Bad", even if Rihanna sucked live on stage (and she often did) you could not deny the catchiness of those singles. This album contains songs that are less commercially accessible but more emotional vulnerable. Songs that she will probably never be able to fully execute live on stage.

So in the end,  what you have is album like any other album from a Beyonceitis victim. A sharply produced album with no BIG songs, but a lot of really good ones, delivered by an artist who is unable to breathe life into them on stage. You cannot with a straight face say "Rihanna is going to kill (insert song) live." It has never happened and probably will never happen. Rihanna is not a vocalist nor is she an entertainer. She a "recording artist" in the strictest and most literal sense of the term.

So why exactly should you buy "Rated R"?

Up until "Rated R" the only thing of any great distinction that Rihanna contributed to her music was her face, name, and body. On "Rated R" the fact that Rihanna had went through a very public and very unfortunate scandal gives the album a certain authenticity that you won't find in most female albums this year.

We complain that artists don't take risks or try anything different. Well "Rated R" is a gigantic risk and it is something different. And if you excuse Rihanna's vocal shortcomings, it is still her name and reputation on the line. So if some of you are about "real" music as much you claim to be you would support art for art's sake, regardless of the artist in front of it. The album's biggest achievement is the fact that the producers, songwriters, mixers, and engineers were able to craft a deeply emotional and textured album from an artist who is unable to convey emotion with just her vocals.

And that is why you should take your debit card, run to iTunes, go to the Rihanna section, and go buckwild. On record is where she gives and gets her life, and therefore that is how we must her support her."Rated R" may or may not be Rihanna's best, but Rihanna on record is as good as she gets.

well talent aside, beyonce needs to come with a better album next time. not a 'artsy' album or a 'different' album or an album 100% created to cross over-just a good album. i supported I Am based on my love for B'Day but I'm out of steam. i've seen her twice but i won't again if i have to endure another collection of okay songs AND the I Am songs just to hear her first two albums and the DC medely. she's a beast on the stage but it's not the same when the song is just so-so. Fans like to relate and ride w/an artist-not always be like, 'oh this is super way differnt/not that good but Okay.' she seems much more authentic when she's r&b Bey, not whatever all that I am shit was about Bey. Also, I liked Rihanna's Take a Bow BET performance. Otherwise she's not that great, lol. As far as the baby thing is concerned I hope Shawn isn't holding his breath b/c she's only focused on making money and hits while she can and seems afraid to stop in the event that she's eclipsed. I mean if any of us were multimillionaires and had a even richer husband why whouldn't we want to pop out a child with some of our still young eggs? she has set high standards in every way for herself so I expect better from her. and she need not cover Anita Baker classics ever again. Beyonce only does standards that are mega-classics that are played on the radio daily. She needs to unearth a B-side and make it her own...show some character.

Hold on Riri. Imma let you & Rated R finish, but Beyonceitis' piece had the best writing ever.

jennifer said...

Welcome Back!!!!

Now, back to the lecture at hand....no hate on Rhianna but I really think both she and Cassie should just go model somewhere. Neither of them can sing, to my knowledge they dont write or produce their songs, AND their live performances are dreadful to watch unless you press mute on the remote first. Now they do manage to crank out singles that are catchy and might make me drag my bottom down to the floor, but if they retired tomorrow would I miss them?? No. So in summary, when somebody can name for me a female artist RIGHT NOW (dont try to get smart and say Chaka Khan or something) who can kill the producing/writing/performing game better than Beyonce then I will turn in my stan card. Until then, haters fall back, and Rhianna please go sit down some damn where.

You should buy it because is getting better reviews than any other Beyonce album ever got. You should buy it because it's a good album, you should buy it because Beyonce would never take such a huge risk to come out with an album like this. Rated R is getting way better reviews than Sasha fierce, dangerously in love and B'day, it has 79 in metacritic, not a surprise though considering Good girl gone bad did better than those albums as well.

Beyonce JUST got popular worldwide with Sasha fierce, before that she was an american artist only, she didn't even have a tour for Dangerously in love and none of her following albums debuted at number 1 anywhere outside of United states, Good girl gone bad debuted at number 1 in over 10 countries and Rihanna wasn't as big as she is today, but she still was bigger than Beyonce worldwide. Beyonce is diminute worldwide, she gets owned by Britney, Aguilera, Madonna, Rihanna and now Gaga, all of them outsell her internationally. The whole Beyonce is an international superstar thing is such a joke, she isn't.

And oh yeah about what you said...nop I ain't buying it.

What these Rihanna stans need to be doing is buying her shit instead of letting Def Jam's obvious press releases inflate their head. Homegirl put out 4 albums in 4 years and not a single one went #1. At least with GGGB Def Jam turned her into a Europop puppet so she could get some #1s over there. Now they're trying to go the edgy route in an attempt to avoid GaGa's lane. Listening to Rihtard's stans you would think she's slaying the game. They need to be buying albums, singles, and tour tickets so she can finally have a #1 album, a #1 single off this dreaded album and FINALLY be able to headline her own tour. I mean she is an "international superstar" why can't she headline? All the other international superstars do it...Bey, Madonna, Britney, Pink, even GaGa who's only been in the game is doing it. Instead her pressed stans are making comments on a blog dedicated to Beyonce. See their twisted logic? They hype her up but the results say SIT THE FUCK DOWN!

--------------
Beyonce toured the UK to promote DIL, and sold out Wembley Arena twice off her first album. And Destiny's Child was selling out arenas worldwide before then.

Madonna will slay internationally until she is 142. That's a given. Gaga is just getting started. Britney's European tour numbers are as missing as her live vocals. Rihanna toured mid-sized venues in Europe and her most successful shows (In Australia) were co-headlining shows with Chris Brown. In America she opened forf Kanye West.

Global superstar means that you can go AROUND the world and get the same reception and response and because Beyonce and Destiny's Child has sold records and played arenas and stadiums in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa I stick by what I said.

Nevermind what GGGB gone bad DID. She currently is not able to sustain. Let's look at what The Fame Monster is CURRENTLY doing.

Christina hasn't been a big driving force since "Stripped" and I'm not keen on my Xtina knowledge but didn't she tour with JTLake? A really big industry name? Now correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't her label send her on a tour by her lonesome if they were SURE she would sell seats by her lonesome.

But that was then and this is now...

Now she's just a few plastic titties and side-ways ass comments from getting skull fucked by a tire iron all up and down Brokeback Mountain.
A lotta Britney's success within the media outlets is a result of sympathy. That's an opinion of MINE. I'm not saying Britney doesn't deserve her due. I think any artist who had stage parents practically making them bring home the bacon since 13, 11, 5 years old deserves the due they get if they manage to stick around YEARS after they hit it big. And Britney deserves what she gets. But in all honesty, tour and chart numbers aside, Britney's shows are more appearances than they are performances.

And that's all I have to say about that.

The rest of y'all... I can't. Y'all just don't know how to act when y'all come to folks house. Come to OTHER folks house tryna fight, what kinda shit...

Tayda said...

By sympathy success I mean, Britney when she went crazy. How the media treated how and now how they all [MTV] feel compelled to make like it never happened by hyping her up as the greatest thing since raw sex before the AIDS epidemic...

I can honestly admit, since Beyonce has elevated her game to an entirely different level than even her closest competition ... it has forced other artist such as Rihanna to either move to the left or bring her very best.

There is only one thing that irks me with all of this...the constant comparison to Lady Gaga, and of course Beyonce. In my opinion, as good as Beyonce is, she is highly overrated. But the girl does the damn thing. I think Rihanna is a good "recording artist" as you say. I also agree that when she's on stage she doesn't deliver as well as her peers (peers being someone like Lady Gaga...Beyonce is NOT one of her peers). I think she gets up there, and gets to that point of delivering a really amazing performance, and then just rests on "pretty". Its a sad thing especially when she is very capable of doing so, but its almost as if she is afraid of being vulnerable on stage. I know for a fact that it comes from her caribbean upbringing where many females will hide any sense of vulnerability and put on a face of "don't f*** with me". Its just how it is. Anywho...I am rambling, but will also agree that RATED R is her best and is an amazing effort. And does come acorss believable with the exception of "G4L" which in my opinion is a little forced. She's not "gangsta". Just not happening. I don't care how many tattoos one gets or how hard one may say they are..not happening Rihanna.

Okey, you don't say she was Worldwide before the I am...Sasha Fierce? SOOO WRONG! Here on the other side on the planet she was big too. Independent Woman, Say My Name, No No No, Lose My Breath and ofc SURVIVOR was on the toplist. And that was with Destiny's Child. Now when it was only Beyonce. Crazy In Love, Naughty Girl, Baby Boy, was all on the top 10. B'day: Irreplaceable, Resentment (amazing text) and Check on It was big. And now I am Sasha Fierce: Halo, If I Were A Boy, Broken Hearted Girl, Smash Into You, Ave Maria, Single Ladies, Diva, Sweet Dream and Hello. Halo was 1# in 13 weeks and Sweet Dreams is still top 10 and it have been there in almost 4 month. And I think Umbrella was 1# in 3 weeks or something.


Rihanna is nothing against Beyonce!
Beyonce is and will always be the Queen! /Sweden ;)

The gift that made her realize that no matter how bad she sucked, somewhere in the world some group of tone-deaf tweens and queens would ALWAYS support her.

----------------------------------

But tweens and queens are better than ghetto hoodrats who live vicariously through a successful female celeb with average talent due to a deep inferiority complex(AKA: Beyonce fans). not that teens and queens support beyonce lmao, you should thank queens because without them single ladies would be just another cheap azz video released from your ghetto queen. I feel sorry for blacks supporting the averagely-talented beyonce because she is so successful. What happened to all the whitneys and janets to the world?

Rihanna's album is great, better than ghetto fierce by a million. beYAWNce blows fan must be pretty upset that her album got so much praise
