Her music was marketed within the reggae genres because of her Caribbean descent. The album received mixed reviews by music critics. Rolling Stone magazine rated it 2.5 out of 5 stars and described as lacking the replay value, ingenuity and rhythm of the single with "generic vocal hiccups and frills" of US R&B inflecting upon her "Caribbean charm".[22] Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine described the album as a "glut of teen R&B chanteuses " and described her lead single "Pon de Replay" as "a dancehall-pop mixture that owes plenty of its sweat and shimmy to Beyoncé's "Baby Boy".[17] A reviewer for Entertainment Weekly commented that the "dancehall/R&B debut is filled with chintzy production and maudlin arrangements that block out the Music of the Sun."[23] The albums second single, "If It's Lovin' that You Want"[24] was less successful than "Pon de Replay", having managed a peak position of number thirty-six in the US, and number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.[18] In Australia, Ireland and New Zealand the single proved to be well-received reaching the top ten in those countries. However, the third single, "Let Me" was only released in Japan, peaking at number eight.

The critical response to the album was mixed; Rolling Stone magazine commented "Like her filler-packed debut album, this similar but superior follow-up doesn't deliver anything else as ingenious as its lead single."[30] Critics also described the album as a record that almost identically alternates between the sunny dancehall/dub-pop, hip-hop-infused club bangers and gushy, adult-oriented ballads.[31] .The second single, "Unfaithful", became a major worldwide hit, reaching the top ten in dozen countries around the world, including the United States where it reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as topping the charts in Canada, France and Switzerland.^ These superstars logged the most visits to the penthouse of Billboard's main singles chart, the Hot 100, during the first decade of the 21st century.

[147] This made Rihanna the only female of African descent in the top twenty.
Rihanna's tattoos have drawn much media attention.[148] She has a total of thirteen known tattoos,[149] including a music note tattoo on her ankle; a Pisces sign behind her right ear;[150][151] a Sanskrit prayer going down her hip; a star in her left ear;[152] the word "love" on her left middle finger;[153] an Arabic phrase, meaning "Freedom is God", on her ribcage area; a trail of stars going down the back of her neck;[154][155] a skull with a pink hair bow; the phrase "shhh..." on her right index finger;[156][157] the date 11.4.86 in Roman numerals on top of her left shoulder[158] a henna-style dragon claw including hibiscus flowers;[159][160] a handgun under her right armpit; and a six-word phrase on her chest.
Her gun tattoo was planned to be just below her shoulders but was ultimately located on her ribcage.[161][162] .In answer to criticism for her violence-themed tattoo,[163][164][165] Keith "Bang Bang" McCurdy, her tattoo artist, was quick to explain his opinion that the image simply "represents strength and power".[166][167][168][169] Her most recent tattoo is on her chest and reads, "Never a failure, always a lesson". She had it tattoed backwards, McCurdy says, because she wanted to be able to read it in the mirror.^ She told me in advance shed be coming, and then when she got there, she told me what she wanted: Never a failure, always a lesson, but written backwards.

A remix of the song was recorded with extra verses sung by pop singer Rihanna, and was released as the fourth single from the album instead of the original version. Music Video The music video, directed by Anthony Mandler, was shot on an indoor soundstage in Castaic, California on April 23 2008.[1][2] One of the sets had to be repainted between takes.[2] An MTV News reporter called the video "a fairly glam affair", and Levine referred to it as "this kind of ultra-glamorous, photography-based, late-'70s/ early-'80s situation" and "really stylish and really beautiful",[1] saying that "[Rihanna's] physical presence is undeniable".[2] The Guardian wrote, "The concept appears to be high-end erotica [...] If the [smartly furnished] sets resemble the kind of rooms nobody really lives in, then Rihanna sports a selection of outfits nobody really wears".[2] The video premiered on May 13 on Total Request Live.[3] Rihanna said on The Today Show, when she went to perform for the Toyota Concert Series, and MTV's TRL that this was once of her favorite videos to make and enjoyed it.
