Today Rhianna releases her debut album 'Get On', featuring the
singles 'Oh Baby'& 'Word Love'. This will be avaliable on
CD and exclusive limited edition vinyl! Check out this exclusive
review from Darker
Than Blue >>
1. Oh Baby
2. Moon Is Blue
4. Word Love
5. I Love Every Little Thing About You
10. Romeo n'Juliet
aptly describes this debut effort from Leeds lass Rhianna Kenny.
Get On presents the listener with a light blend of pop and soul,
and Rhianna successfully recreates the funk genre with a faint
air of youthful genius. The opening single single 'Oh Baby'
sets the tone with it's funky guitar and pop-tastic melody,
and this sound is extended to cuts like 'Word Love', and 'Girlfriend'.
Likewise, 'Damn' is a jazzy soulful delight which a hint of
RnB and the Stevie Wonder cover 'I Love Every Little Thing About
You' does justice to the original. This album looks set to do
well on a mainstream level and 'Get On' is a stylish effort
deserving of mass recognition. A class act.

11.09.02 : 'Get On' Album Review (Source
In a world that's keen to pigeonhole artists, it's actually
quite hard to know who Rhianna's music will appeal to the most.
Her shows at jazz venues have received critical praise from
some of the most highbrow musical luvvies in the business, while
her energetic support slots to Destiny's Child were lapped up
by impressionable teens.
actual fact, this London teenager, who's based in Shoreditch,
namechecks rather different artists, such as Kate Bush, Nelly
Furtado and Patti Smith, as her inspirations. However, the main
thing worth noting is her output's Phil Spector-ish pop sensibility
which, when combined with a modern urban pop sheen, adds up
to the sort of music that The Supremes would be making, if they
the back of two single releases, Word Love and a Top 20 hit,
Oh Baby, the big-haired chanteuse releases Get On,her confident
debut album. At just ten tracks, Get On is perhaps a little
on the short side. However, a far as the content is concerned,
there's very little to fault. Johnny Rockstar, the producer,
does an admirable job in bringing out the best in the former
Bedlam A Go Go backing singer's lush voice.

03.09.02 : Faulty CD's
Since yesterday's release of Rhianna's 'Word Love', many fans
have been surprised to find that CD1 of the single does not
feature the track,'Oh Baby (Album Version). This is due to a
mistake made by the distributors who have pressed up the CD
wrongly. Some stores across the UK have pulled these off of
the shelves, but some are still selling them. If you're a collector,
get your copies fast, as these babies are unique!!! CD2 of the
single has not been affected by this.
According to mid-week sales, 'Word Love' appears to be at #44.
This should increase over the weekend!!
