Rihanna’s New ‘Loud’ Track “Skin” Will Make You Blush

Nov 9th, 2010 // 17 Comments

One listen to naughty dance track “S&M” off Rihanna’s upcoming LP Loud (out November 16) lets us know the Barbadian songstress, who performed at the MTV Europe Music Awards over the weekend, is amping up the sexy on her new album. Case in point: her smoldering new ballad “Skin,” which you can catch after the jump.

“No teasing, you waited long enough / Go deep, I’m-a throw it at you, can you catch it?” Ri Ri sings on the sultry “Skin,” as synths snake around the track before a slow beat kicks in.

Other choice lyrics: “So why you standing over there with your clothes on? Baby, strip down for me, go and take them off.”

The song’s real hook is the fuzzy electric guitar that begins sawing through the melody about three minutes in, and continues building until it reaches a, er, climactic solo at the very end.

Not bad. The last minute kind of reminds us of Sade’s achingly beautiful “No Ordinary Love,” which was just as sensuous but perhaps a little (okay—a lot) less graphic, lyrically.

So what do you think? Are you feeling Rihanna’s “Skin”?

    Skin is one of my favorite from the album. Complicated, California King Bed, Man Down, What’s My Name, Raining Men are also pretty good songs. I will say this is Rihanna’s best album yet

    It’s alright. The beat is kinda slow, was kinda expecting a higher tempo after hearing the first verse and chorus.

    I absolutely love this song, the way the beat clashes with Rihanna’s sexy taunting lyrics really is an attention grasper. I think she really knew what she was doing with Skin. The album is also amazing, the best music Ri Ri has offered us so far in my opinion. : )
