New York Times issues review on song sensation of Barbados, Rihanna – US online daily gives her odds to have Song Of Summer ’07

The New York Times reviewer seems to hint that maybe Rihanna is looking to force-ripe herself (she is 19, not 29) but also is pleased yet shocked she has been churning out an album a year, this time she has taken critical moves to ensure the new disc remains a Hit Factory –

This album begins with a rush of dance tracks. In ?Don?t Stop the Music,? produced by StarGate, she finds the exuberance in a rather severe techno beat; ?Push Up on Me? gives Lionel Richie?s ?Running With the Night? a frenetic, club-friendly makeover. This CD sounds as if it were scientifically engineered to deliver hits: There?s a breezy duet with Ne-Yo, ?Hate That I Love You,? and three tracks produced by Timbaland, including one on which Justin Timberlake sings backup.

However, Kelefa Sanneh was unsure about the last track of the album – yet acknowledged that Rihanna‘s fans would be too busy listening to the rest of the disc! Although these days that may be downloads, still, I hope there’s a trident in there somewhere…
