Good Girl Gone Bad is the third studio album by Barbadian R&B singer-songwriter Rihanna, released May 30, 2007, on Def Jam Recordings. Recording sessions for the album took place during October 2006 to April 2007 at Westlake Recording Studios in Los Angeles. Rihanna worked with producers Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, Evan Rogers, Carl Sturken, Ne-Yo, StarGate, and Timbaland. Departing from the dancehall influence of her previous albums, Good Girl Gone Bad contains up-tempo and ballad-oriented songs, and it heavily incorporates pop and dance-pop musical styles.

The album debuted at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling 168,000 copies in its first week. It became a massive commercial success and spawned five singles that attained chart success. Upon its release, Good Girl Gone Bad received generally positive reviews from most music critics and earned Rihanna a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for the single "Umbrella". It was re-released as Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded in June 2008. The album achieved multi-platinum success in several countries, and it serves as Rihanna's best selling album to date, selling over 7.6 million copies worldwide.

Conception

Following her second studio album, A Girl Like Me (2006), Rihanna started working with songwriters and producers early in 2007. Rihanna spent the week of the 2007 Grammy Awards with singer, songwriter and Def Jam label mate Ne-Yo for the follow-up album. He had co-written her ballad-driven "Unfaithful", and she had vocal lessons with him for the new album.[1] Despite having previously worked with him, she teamed up with him again and wrote the duet "Hate That I Love You". Rihanna commented: "I read through the lyrics, and I'm like, 'What are you thinking? What is going through your head?' " Rihanna recalled. "I just have to stop sometimes and be like, 'Ne-Yo, OK, tell me why you wrote this song.' Because I don't understand how he comes up with certain concepts and he just blows me away sometimes. He's just insane."[1] He also wrote two other song on the album and the first single from the re-release, "Take a Bow".[2] The album's lead single, "Umbrella", was written by The-Dream. The song was originally written with American pop singer Britney Spears in mind, but her label rejected the song, and then offered it to American R&B singer Mary J. Blige, before it was given to Rihanna.[3]

Stewart stated that he was still reluctant as to whether Rihanna was the right artist to record the song, but following the recording of the "ella, ella" catch phrase, he felt they were onto "something".[3] The-Dream also helped with penning the songs "Breakin' Dishes," "Sell Me Candy," and "Lemme Get That" on the album. "Shut Up and Drive" was inspired by "Blue Monday", embracing a noticeable rock-oriented sound.[4] Rihanna also worked with Justin Timberlake on the album who wrote the eighth single, "Rehab". She added, "It's just an honour to work with Justin. He's a fun guy, a great artist and a very talented person."[5]

"They just put me in the studio and I started recording and recording, and it showed the direction of who I became as an artist.[...] We figured Good Girl Gone Bad was the perfect title because it showed people I'm my own [person] now. Not doing what anyone wants me to do. I'm not the innocent Rihanna anymore. I'm taking a lot more risks and chances. I felt when I cut my hair, it shows people I'm not trying to look or be anybody else. The album is very edgy. We have some urban records, some really pop records.[6]
—Rihanna, MTV News

Rihanna worked with some of the producers who has worked on her previous the albums including Evan and Carl, J.R. Rotem, record producer Sean Garrett and Norwegian production team Stargate.[1] Rihanna also collaborated with new music producers on the album such as Timbaland, will.i.am and Sean Garrett in the studio.[1] Rihanna also wanted to work with music producer Andre 3000 and Polow Da Don, who had previous works with the Pussycat Dolls, Fergie and Usher among others.[1] Most of the album tracks were recorded in a Westlake Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California and parallel to the recording sessions of her second studio album, A Girl Like Me. Rihanna began working on the album in late 2006 and was almost done recording in late February 2007.[1] During an interview on UK radio station Capital FM, Rihanna explained the meaning and reasoning behind the album title: "Bad is not sleazy. Bad has its own term to every individual and in my case it just means I've gotten a little rebellious on the album, broken out of my shell and I'm taking risks... Michael Jackson Bad kind of way".[7]

Rihanna herself stated that the album is greatly inspired by Brandy's 2004 album Afrodisiac: "That album I listen to all day, all night. When I was in the studio that was the album that I listened to all the time and I really admired that every song was a great song. You could listen to the entire album. And I was like, 'You know what? I have to make an album like this'".[8] The genre of the new album is a slightly new direction for the singer, favouring uptempo dance numbers. It followed her club-natured melodies and, like its predecessor, includes R&B and ballads. In an interview surrounding the album's theme, Rihanna claimed, "You feel different every album, and [at] this stage I feel like I want to do a lot of uptempo [songs].[...] I want to keep people dancing but still be soulful at the same time".[1] The album incorporates R&B, dance-pop and pop influences and being filled with up-tempo high-energy songs makes the album more pop oriented. The first half of the album is littered with well-known sample, although, despite the album being mostly uptempo, the second half of the album contains a slow and moody sound.[9] The album, featuring a dance-pop sound, did not include the reggae and dancehall that Music of the Sun (2005), and A Girl Like Me (2006) contained.[10] The reason for that being, was because of the direction and theme of the album. Rihanna explained:

"I basically took the attitude of the bad girl and I really got rebellious and just did everything the way I wanted to do it—I didn't want to listen to anybody. I didn't consult with anybody. I just want to have a little more fun with my music and be a little more experimental in terms of my image and my sound. I just reinvented myself.[...] A bad girl, it's all about the attitude that you take toward things, I'm not being careful, I'm just having fun. I'm taking risks because bad girls take risks."[5]

Some of the songs on the album incorporate 1970s and 1980s styles, which are inspired through sampling. The albums second single, "Shut Up and Drive" is sampled from the New Order's 1983 "Blue Monday". However, Allmusic referred to it as "a sleek, forthcoming proposition…as undeniable and rocking as Sugababes' 2002 UK smash 'Freak Like Me'."[11] "Don't Stop the Music," being a fast dance groove song, is combined with a sample of "Soul Makossa" and part of the chorus from "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'." "Push Up on Me," on the other hand, features a sample from the Lionel Richie 1983 song "Running with the Night".

Content

"Umbrella", whose single features rapper Jay-Z, is the album's opening and lead single. The song combines synthesizers with the based on the hi-hat, synthesizers, and a distorted bassline.[12] Andy Kellman of Allmusic described the song as a mammoth if spacious drums, a towering backdrop during the chorus, and vocals that are somehow totally convincing without sounding all that impassioned.[4] However, Entertainment Weekly commented that the song's beat can be recreated through a slowed-down drum loop from the Apple music-software program GarageBand.[13] The album was also the first album where Rihanna showcased her rock and roll side as evident in the electric guitar flavored "Shut Up and Drive." The song is part of an all-upbeat opening sequence[4] with a heavy guitar riff containing a pop rock sound.[14] "Hate That I Love You" and "Take a Bow" both carry a moderate groove sound, with an R&B influences that uses of a gently strummed acoustic guitar.[15] "Don't Stop the Music" and "Disturbia," are up-tempo dance grooves with "Don't Stop the Music" incorporating electropop and house music while "Disturbia" using a dark sound with the vocal effect of Auto-Tune, being used throughout the song on Rihanna's vocals.[16][17]

Good Girl Gone Bad focuses primarily on being rebellious and gaining a bad girl attitude. "Shut Up and Drive" is all about Rihanna wanting someone to drive her around in her new car, she wants someone to take control now, but can they handle it.[14] "Hate That I Love You" talks about being in love with the ex-boyfriend and not being able to move on. In an interview, Rihanna said "That song ['Hate That I Love You'], when it first starts off, you think it's a sexy song, but you have to listen to the lyrics. It's a really deep song."[6] "Take a Bow" portrays an apology from a boyfriend after he's nabbed cheating.[18] "Rehab" portrays a message about being in love with a guy so much, she has to check in to a rehab clinic to get out of it.

Releases and promotion

Good Girl Gone Bad was released through Def Jam Recordings on May 30, 2007.[19] Rihanna re-released the album with a double-disc deluxe edition package titled Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded in June 2008. In the U.S., the set includes the standard edition's 12 tracks, with three all new tracks—the lead U.S. number-one single "Take a Bow", a remix of "If I Never See Your Face Again" with Maroon 5, and the U.S. number-one single "Disturbia." A documented performance at Manchester Evening News Arena on December 6, 2007, was released as a DVD on June 17, 2008,[20] containing behind the scenes footage and four live performances from her tours, and was housed in a digipak. The deluxe edition of Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded has gone out of print within months of its release, and has been replaced with the exact same CD disc as the deluxe edition, however, it is packaged in a standard CD case as opposed to the original release's digipak, and it does not include the bonus DVD. In the United States, the album's artwork features a green toned background instead of the original's grey toned background. In the United Kingdom, the background is a white-gray toned background instead of the green. The revamped version of the album was released in most countries on June 17,[21][22][23] but the CD version was released on June 2, 2008, in the UK (with the DVD version following on June 16) and on June 21 in Australia.[24] The album was released as a remix collection on January 27, 2009[25] and on February 2, 2009, in the UK.[26] The songs are radio edits.[27] This release is different to the bonus disc found on the original album's deluxe edition in that it excludes the remixes of "SOS" and of the bonus tracks "Cry" and "Haunted". In turn, this release adds in remixes of "Disturbia" and "Take A Bow" from the Reloaded edition but excludes the remix of "If I Never See Your Face Again" featuring Maroon 5 (a remix of this can be found on Call and Response: The Remix Album). A remix version of "Umbrella" was been added, and the remix of "Don't Stop The Music" has also been changed. On January 26, 2009, Universal Music Group added the album to their list of "First Plays", a online version of the album.

Rihanna co-hosted MTV’s Total Request Live in May 2007 to promote the album. She then performed live at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards on June 3, 2007.[28] She also performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September 2007 and on The David Letterman Show in October 2007.[29] The second single of the album, "Shut Up and Drive", was used as a promotional for Cycle 9 of the The CW's television series America's Next Top Model. Rihanna embarked on a worldwide concert tour on September 15, 2007, three months after the release of the album. It consisted of 79 shows and ended on February 13, 2009. The first leg began in Canada, consisting of eleven shows across the country with Akon, and it later passed (without Akon) through United States, Europe, Oceania, Africa and Asia. Supporting acts for the tour were Akon, Ciara and David Jordan.[30]

Upon its release, Good Girl Gone Bad received generally positive reviews from most music critics, based on an aggregate score of 72/100 from Metacritic.[65] Andy Kellman of Allmusic said that "From beginning to end, Good Girl Gone Bad is as pop as pop gets in 2007, each one of its 12 songs a potential hit in some territory"[66][67] while The New York Times' Kelefa Sanneh stated that "This CD sounds as if it were scientifically engineered to deliver hits.[...] Good Girl Gone Bad should secure her place on pop music’s A-list".[68] Pitchfork Media described the album as "An unexpectedly varied and satisfying listen".[69] Talia Kraines from BBC News stated that the sizzling "Umbrella" might be the biggest hit Rihanna's ever had, but there's plenty on this album that could do even better.[70]

Neil Drumming of Entertainment Weekly gave Good Girl Gone Bad a B+, commenting; "follow-up to last year's A Girl Like Me is a meld of many genres — including '80s pop and rock — at its finest, messiest moments, Good Girl Gone Bad is a thrilling throwback to more than a decade ago, when upstart producers haphazardly mashed R&B with hip-hop to create chunky jeep anthems such as Mary J. Blige's "Real Love".[...] Good Girl only goes bad when Rihanna tries her hand at treacly ballads and glum sentiment. Surprisingly guilty are her high-profile songwriters."[71] The album's lead single, "Umbrella" also ranked number three on "The 10 Best Songs of 2007" by Time magazine. Explained writer Josh Tyrangiel: "Rihanna has a special talent for vocal innuendo. She toys with the word umbrella — or, as Rihanna would put it, um-ba-rella, ella, ella — as if she's taking it for a ride on a water bed. The sexiest song of 2007."[72][73]
