With Unapologetic Rihanna really put a good, well-crafted album together from up-pace to down-pace and I feel with this album she really proved herself as an Artist that is here to push things to new levels, although with albums before like A Girl Like Me, Good Girl Gone Bad, and Loud, I’m not signifying they didn’t feel thoroughly developed either way by. The amazing Unapologetic Queen, I seriously just loved this album as I was invited by her team to Jay-Z's 40/40 Club for the Album Party in New York City. I was still a newbie in NYC so it was such a huge experience and I just remember hugging her by the end of the night after her security guards had hemmed me up to a corner so she could walk pass as everyone that was at the club had mostly left by that time and it was just a few of us still chilling at the bar. I said to Rihanna "I Love you Baby," all super sensual and if I was white my face would've probably been bloodshot red. Rihanna shrugged her head back in such a familiar way if you'd seen it, kind of "yea right" looking or "ha, look at you" but still flirty and yes for me it felt a little romantic, I couldn't stop thinking about her for days. The first thing that I loved about this era was that there was a symbolic 7 that was marked all around it making it such a significant number at the time that it truly always keep my mind wondering and churning. Rihanna won a Grammy for ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album’ for this album in 2014 and it was her first mega successful album to do something like having a best-selling debut week and a number one album. Rihanna definitely enlisted a powerhouse of producers for this project including Labrinth, David Guetta, The Dream, Mike Will Made-It, Parker Ighile, and StarGate. One thing that also really inspired me about this album was the 777 Tour that Rihanna embarked on where she took 150 journalists to promote her seventh studio album by giving their personal experiences of what it was like to travel with the mega star we know as Rihanna and also giving their experiences on the challenges that they witnessed going on behind the scenes first hand. Like the continuation of flights, and having to carry around all that luggage everywhere, the journalists even gave what they thought about her shows she did on her tour stops and how she performed in them. Rihanna pulled through in the documentary that aired and gave a window inside the experience, as you could see how the tour stops wore everyone’s energy out and they didn’t have ideal things like beds to sleep in but definitely had plenty of liquor and Rihanna would be the one having to go on stage and still sing and perform entertaining everyone. I don’t think she would drink until after the performances but all in all it really gave an additional spirit to the album Unapologetic.
