Rihanna

Talk That Talk

(Def Jam)

Sounds Like: The Barbadian princess of controversial raunch-pop’s on a roll with her sixth (she’s 23!); a new batch of dance pop light on S&M and heavy on house beats.

Free Association: People will bug out to “Cockiness (Love It)”—the girl likes sex, no bigs.

For Fans Of: Britney x Beyonce + Ciara, Calvin Harris, drunken dancefloor euphoria.

 

Daughtry

Break The Spell

(RCA/19)

Sounds Like: The Idol baldie (he came in FOURTH) writes on every song and says it’s “nothing like the previous two,” which means softer, less hard rock and more emo.

Free Association: Classic adult contemporary, alt-rock record cover, dudes—sweet poses.

For Fans Of: Nickelback/Fuel/Creed, songs for the WWE, heartfelt military montages.

 

Yelawolf

Radioactive

(Ghet-O-Vision/Interscope)

Sounds Like: The methy-looking tatted-up skateboarder (he gave up) has been rapping for years but fighting with labels. Here he gets his Emimem-sponsored moment to shine.

Free Association: Em shows him up. Did you see “Daddy’s Lambo”?! Dude’s flow blows.
