New Music: Rihanna f/ Jay-Z – ‘Talk That Talk’

Rihanna and Jay-Z

The Roc is in the building. Jay-Z and Rihanna combine forces once again on the title track from RiRi’s sixth album Talk That Talk, produced by Stargate and written by Ester Dean. Mr. Carter does it way big on his intro verse (“I’m flying out to Pisa just to get some pizza”), while RiRi adds a feminine touch to the aggressive beat.

“‘Talk That Talk’ is a mid-tempo banger with hard drums, dirty synths, and Rihanna and Jay at their best,” said Stargate’s Tor Erik Hermansen. “We are very happy with the song and Jay’s verse is crazy—same with Rihanna’s part.”

How does “Talk That Talk” stack up to the Roc stars’ previous hit collaborations, “Umbrella” and “Run This Town”? Listen and weigh in with your thoughts.

    @Killer_blupp, Exactly! Beyoncé is the female version of Michael Jackonson. Sucks they never made a song together. Only with a bunch of other artists. Rihanna is awesome 2, but not as talented as Bey.

  17. jaymaka

    i’m sorry this song sounds like a weak, recycled, typical boring song, and jay-z is washed up and overrated now. this beat is just so basic and tired i’m sorry. and the actual song is actually kind of annoying and repetitive. it’s pop trash. and this is the name of the album? i guess this album is just to make money off songs that got cut from the loud album b/c this does not sound like new, fresh material with any effort behind it. adding jay-z doesn’t change that.

  30. mamario

    well, I don’t like it…the beat is really boring, nothing special or catchy…wow, what is going on with her new album??? ‘WE FOUND LOVE’ IS DOPE! But everything else is not my taste at all and I AM A HUGE RIHANNA FAN and normally love everything she is releasing…

    Damn, she should have wait a few month more to release a new album and didn’t rush this…

    Huge disapointment so far…

    and I need a nice featuring with a female artist like Jenni Lo or Beyoncé…

    [Reply]

    :) Reply:

    @mamario, I hear you.. I’ve loved everything rihanna’s come out with since 05′.. but judging from the snippets, “You Da One” & this, her new stuff doesn’t stand up to her other stuff. It’s like they tried to re-do “Rude Boy” in several different songs and put them all on one album.
    You can really hear that a lot of these songs are left-overs from Loud. They’re very “Raining Men”/”What’s My Name” like.. But who expected much growth in such a short period of time anyway?
    “We Found Love” showed promise to a new sound for Rihanna, but I think it’s going to be the only stand-out track off TTT

    @:), I think the lack of variety comes from re-using the same producers and writers. Rihanna’s become a cover-artist for Ester Dean

  48. WRTW?

    I love Rihanna and I probably know the words to all the songs on her album after the GGGB era, but this is really stale. Safe music, No matter all the number ones she has, she’s still one single away from falling off. She hasn’t solidified herself as an artist, and is as replaceable as Ke$ha, I hope the rest of TTT is better and more stand-out, but this mediocrity is killing me. WRTW?

  49. Ri-Talked

    Give it a chance before you judge this album. It’s not like Beyonce’s “4″ was a master piece, that album flopped and now she’s desperately bombarding us with her annoying( over rated uninteresting and safe)videos …..

    For the record, I’m not a Bee’s hater, just that she should stick to R&B/soul because she’s a talented vocalist and live pop to pop singers.

    ESCO Reply:

    @Ri-Talked, sales don’t mean quality, numbnuts. When people like you understand that, the world will be a better place. MC Hammer sold 10 million, did that make him better than Rakim at that time? Backstreet Boys sold more than BoyzIIMen, did that make them better? The list of examples is endless.

    ESCO, You not very smart are you? People like you are the satans of this world….you don’t understand diversity, instead you want to judge because you feel like you a superior than anybody else. Well tough luck the world is diverse and then sooner you realize the better…I would expect you to understand that because clearly you immature.

    For the record, Quality vs Quantity. I’ll about quality….Unlike you, I listen to Erykah badu, lauryn Hill, boyz to men and Rihanna and Cold play and Common etc….I’m diverse not limited nor limiting my mind………You better grow up and do the same.

    [Reply]

  53. Huh?!

    I get the feeling that Rihstans just can’t be honest with themselves, this song is so basic just like the rest of material from Talk That Talk. If this had been released by any other artist, like Keri Hilson, people would be clowning it. Even Jay’s verse is weak. The lyrics are basic, her vocals are weak. They all sound like a bunch of left over tracks from LOUD. No growth at all. She is better than this! SMH.

    I don’t think this is gonna be a good era for her. She should have just taken a break and took time to come up with some better material. She was just going for a bunch of weak catchy hits with this album. I’m really dissapointed.

  62. Esmee

    I really like this song. It has something addicting to ME. But that doesn’t mean for others. But like someone else said, this is already her 6th album, she has to calm down a bit. Just take her time to make some good quality songs. But I like this song.

    Talk That Talk was rushed it has no substance she should have spent more time but Def Jam is profiting a lot off Rihanna so ofcourse they will put anything out even if its not the best
