Given the proliferation of young and beautiful urban dance-pop divas dominating the radio and music video airwaves in 2005, it initially was tempting to discount Rihanna as yet another Beyoncé-Ciara-Ashanti cash-in. But like her Def Jam labelmate Teairra Mari -- another young and beautiful urban dance-pop diva who emerged out of nowhere in 2005 -- Rihanna is winsome rather than wannabe, thanks in no small part to her producers. Just as Teairra Mari benefited greatly from irresistibly shrewd beat-making on her debut album, Rihanna benefits from the knowing production work of Syndicated Rhythm Productions, aka Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken, who together produced a laundry list of contemporary teen pop sensations during the prior decade. What these guys do that's so irresistibly shrewd is synthesize Caribbean rhythms and beats with standard-issue urban dance-pop: Caribbean-inflected urban, if you will. So while a song like "Pon de Replay" -- to pick the most obvious exhibit -- is driven by booming dancehall-lite beats and a reggae vocal cadence (and title spelling), it's a simple dance-pop song at its core, with standard English-language singing as well as a can't-miss singalong hook (and a glitzy, urban-style MTV video to boot). The best songs on Music of the Sun follow this appealing template, including the similarly catchy few songs that follow the aforementioned album-opening smash hit: "Here I Go Again," "If It's Lovin' That You Want," and "You Don't Love Me (No, No, No)." As with most albums of this ilk, Music of the Sun descends into faceless slow jams after a while, overall consistency not being among its attributes, but thankfully it picks up the pace toward the end of its 13-song run and concludes on a fun note, with a remix of "Pon de Replay" featuring Elephant Man. The result is one of the more engaging urban dance-pop albums of the year (and one of the most infectious summer jams, for sure), as well as a nice Caribbean primer for those not ready or willing to jump on the increasingly trendy dancehall and reggaeton bandwagons concurrently sweeping through America's more fashionable cities.

Comment le reggae a conquis la pop américaine

Jamais le reggae n’avait été aussi exposé depuis Bob Marley. Depuis trois ans, les tubes des stars de la pop américaine ont pris des saveurs jamaïcaines. De Beyonce à Rihanna en passant par Drake, Ed Sheeran ou Justin Bieber, ils sont de plus en plus nombreux à avoir posé leur voix sur un morceau de dancehall, la version « club » du reggae popularisée par le légendaire producteur King Jammy au milieu des années 80 avec le Sleng Teng, le premier reggae électronique de l’histoire. Retour sur une infiltration en douceur.

Comment Kanye West a renversé le hip-hop

En vingt ans, Kanye West a plusieurs fois changé le cours du rap et influencé comme très peu de ses contemporains la pop de son époque. Il a collaboré avec Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, Daft Punk ou Rihanna, relancé les carrières de Jay-Z et Common, révélé Kid Cudi ou John Legend et est une influence majeure pour des artistes tels que Childish Gambino, Drake ou The Weeknd. Retour sur la carrière d’un artiste qui reste une énigme.

Les pionniers du rock’n’roll

Le rock’n’roll n’est pas mort. Mais ses pionniers encore en vie se comptent sur deux doigts d’une main : Jerry Lee Lewis et Wanda Jackson. 84 et 82 ans. Lui, poulain sauvage de l’écurie Sun Records, entré dans l’histoire en foutant le feu à son instrument, en transformant la musique d’église, la country et le boogie-woogie en rock’n’roll diabolique. Elle, chanteuse country qui s’est offert une belle aventure rock’n’roll aux côtés d’Elvis. De Little Richard à Chuck Berry en passant Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly et Hank Williams, Qobuz rend hommage aux précurseurs du rock.
