Unapologetic is the seventh studio album by Barbadian singer Rihanna. It was released on November 19, 2012, by Def Jam Recordings and SRP Records. It was recorded between June and November 2012, during promotion of her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk (2011). As executive producer, Rihanna enlisted previous collaborators The-Dream, David Guetta, Chase & Status, and StarGate to work alongside new collaborators such as Parker Ighile, Mike Will Made-It, and Labrinth. Unapologetic is mainly a pop and R&B album that incorporates elements of dubstep, hip hop, EDM and reggae in its production, similar to the sound of her previous albums Talk That Talk and Rated R (2009).
Anti existed as an album cycle before it existed as an album – arguably long before Rihanna knew what form her eighth album would take, either. Work on Anti began in the autumn of 2014 and proceeded in semi-public, progress being measured in Instagram posts and tweets, along with intermittent singles, each released to white-hot anticipation but none metamorphosing into massive hits. When Anti finally appeared in January 2016 – three years after Unapologetic and months later than expected – it bore none of these 2015 singles, a move that suggests a tacit acknowledgment that neither the curiously muted Kanye West and Paul McCartney collaboration "FourFiveSeconds" nor the unrestrained roar of "Bitch Better Have My Money" functioned as appropriate anchors for the album…
"Right Now" is a song by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna from her seventh studio album Unapologetic (2012). The song features French disk-jockey David Guetta. Rihanna co-wrote the song with R&B singers Ne-Yo and The-Dream, while their longtime collaborators, Norwegian production duo StarGate, co-produced the track alongside Guetta and his own longtime collaborators Nicky Romero and Giorgio Tuinfort. It was sent to contemporary hit and rhythmic radios in the United States as the fourth single from the album on May 28, 2013. Musically, "Right Now" draws influence from electronic and dance music. The lyrical content features Rihanna chanting to live life in the current moment. The song garnered a mostly positive response from music critics, many of whom deemed it as one of the highlights of Unapologetic.
The pop superstar captured live in performance at London's O2 Arena. The tour, in support of Rihanna's fifth studio album 'Loud' (2010), featured an elaborate stage show and saw the singer perform hits including 'Only Girl (in the World)', 'California King Bed', 'Umbrella' and 'We Found Love'.
Rihanna established her dance-pop credentials in summer 2005 with her debut smash hit, "Pon de Replay," and continued to demonstrate hit potential in subsequent years (e.g., "S.O.S." in 2006; "Umbrella" in 2007; "Disturbia" in 2008).
