EDITORS’ NOTES

Rihanna finds love—and lust—on the dance floor on her self-assured sixth album. Talk That Talk has its raunchier tunes—the space-funk “Cockiness (Love It)” doubles down on the Barbadian singer's domme persona, while the pulsing ”Birthday Cake” adds serious heat to the proceedings—but the album’s moments of infatuation are just as thrilling. “You da One” is an effervescent, dancehall-tinged love song, and the Calvin Harris-assisted “We Found Love” combines longing vocal performances with bumping tracks that only intensify their urgency.
