Rihanna's Album Release Party at Times Square

On the eve of her new album release, Rihanna shut down Times Square in the Big Apple. Sporting new red long locks, the Barbadian singer made a live performance for MTV's "The Seven", a new afternoon show launched to replace "TRL". RiRi looked sassy in her tribal-printed jacket, black bustier, high heels, stockings and light-yellow hot pants. Finishing her look with a set of big bracelets on both wrists, she catered fans flocking at the venue with her current No. 1 single "What's My Name?".

Drake, her collaborator, didn't appear at the show, but RiRi alone was more than capable to wow concertgoers who sang along to the lyrics of the hit single. "[It was] really good," she said of how she felt to duet with Drizzy. "We know each other. We're good friends. It's easy for us to work together."

RiRi is releasing "Loud" across United States on November 16. "Thank you, New York! It's amazing! It's a lot of people," she shouted to screaming fans. "I'm really excited. I'm looking forward to sharing it with the world. I want everybody to get Loud tomorrow."

Beside dropping an album, she also jumps on to helping other artists with their projects. She has collaborated with Nicki Minaj on "Fly" for the rapper's upcoming debut album "Pink Friday" which is also coming out soon. "I hope so," she answered when asked about filming a music video together.

Rihanna is living out 'Loud' on new album

Rihanna is a good girl who went bad a couple of albums ago, and she keeps getting naughtier all the time. Loud's pulsating opener, S&M, makes it clear from the jump where she's headed as she acknowledges that "chains and whips excite me." She never retreats from that sexually aggressive tone as she shakes off the dark cloud of domestic violence that veiled 2009's Rated R. On her fifth album in five years, she is on a freaky, flirty, fun trip. The edgy music, which leans heavily toward dance and island sounds, fits well with her less than blissful romantic romps. On more than one occasion, she makes it clear that she likes her men complicated and that they can expect her to be the same.

Eminem puts in a cameo on Love the Way You Lie (Part II), which extends, but doesn't really add, to their earlier hit about a tortured relationship from his Recovery album. Better is Raining Men, a duet with Nicki Minaj on which busters feel the blast of the vamps' ire. Rihanna is not only loud, but full of drama.
