The vocal range of mezzo-soprano Rihanna is from B2 to C6. Rihanna studied voice with Ne-Yo while she was recording the songs for her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007). “I’ve never had vocal training, so when I’m in the studio, he’ll tell me how to breathe and stuff,” she said of the experience. He’ll say something like, “OK, I want you to do staccato,” in big, fancy words. ‘OK, I don’t know what that is,’ I say. Music critics gave her vocal performance on Loud (2010) favorable reviews. In his review of the song “Love the Way You Lie (Part II),” BBC’s James Skinner praised Rihanna’s vocals and stated that her voice is strong and that “it is Rihanna’s vocal – at once commanding, soulful and vulnerable – that anchors the song, and Loud itself.” The Independent’s Andy Gill believes that “California King Bed” showcases her best vocal performance. Billboard magazine stated in a review of Unapologetic that “Diamonds finds Rihanna doing one of her throatiest, most impassioned vocals to date, on this inspirational pop ballad.” Her voice “cured into a weapon of emotional chill and tactical indifference over the years, as her game face frozen in place,” according to Jon Caramanica of the New York Times. It is clearly unfriendly and was designed to give commands. On Rolling Stone’s list of the 200 greatest singers ever, Rihanna was ranked 68th in 2023.
Rihanna has said that she wants to “make music that could be heard in parts of the world that I’ve never been to” in a statement about her musical career. She started incorporating a variety of genres, including pop, R&B, reggae, dubstep, hip hop, and EDM, with its provocative subject matter and lyrics. Slant Magazine stated in a review of Good Girl Gone Bad that Rihanna “finally figured out that she’s a dance artist and the majority of the album is comprised of uptempo dance-pop [songs like]” “Push Up on Me” and “Don’t Stop the Music”. It is referred to as a turning point in her career because it departs from the Caribbean sound of her earlier albums. Songs like “Don’t Stop the Music” and “Shut Up and Drive” are among the record’s first half’s many 1980s pop influences, but the second half retreats into traditional R&B.
