Multi-platinum MTV VMA, Grammy, and American Music Award winning artist – and CoverGirl spokesperson – Rihanna raises the curtain on the upcoming new CD+DVD U.S. re-release of her worldwide multi-platinum SRP/Def Jam album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded,’ arriving in stores on June 17th – the week after the album officially marks its historic 52nd week on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Rihanna christens the deluxe new ‘Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded’ two-disc package with a new single, “Take A Bow.” The number one most requested song on the internet, ia available on I-Tunes today.
“Take A Bow” was written by fellow Def Jam artist Ne-Yo and produced by Stargate, same team responsible for Rihanna’s “Unfaithful,” her #1 smash of 2006; and “Hate That I Love You,” her Top 10 duet with Ne-Yo released late last year. The video for “Take A Bow,” directed by Anthony Mandler, went into immediate large rotation on both MTV and VH-1.
The original 12-song CD configuration of ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ – source of the non-stop string of hit singles that began with the MTV VMA and Grammy Award-winning global #1 hit “Umbrella” (featuring Jay-Z), then “Shut Up and Drive,” “Hate That I Love You” (featuring Ne-Yo), and the current “Don’t Stop the Music” – will now be augmented with four bonus tracks: 1) “Take A Bow”; 2) a cover version of Maroon 5’s “If I Never See Your Face Again” (featuring Maroon 5); 3) “Hatin’ On the Club”; and 4) “Disturbia.”
The newly-produced bonus DVD for ‘Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded’ will consist of three components: 1) 75 minutes of live concert footage from a show in Manchester, England last December 2007; 2) a 17-minute documentary feature; and 3) a four-minute home movie of “Umbrella” created by Rihanna’s band.
‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ (released June 5, 2007) was Rihanna’s third album release in less than two years. It followed-up 2006’s RIAA platinum ‘A Girl Like Me,’ with the back-to-back #1 hits, “S.O.S.” and “Unfaithful”; and her RIAA gold debut from 2005, Music Of the Sun, featuring the worldwide smash, “Pon De Replay.”
‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ boasts the production skills of Timabland, C. “Tricky” Stewart, Stargate, and the team of Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken (responsible for “S.O.S.” and “Pon De Replay”), as well as songwriting contributions from Justin Timberlake and Ne-Yo, among others.
In 2006, Rihanna created the Believe Foundation which assists and inspires children in need all over the world. Believe gives children a chance to not only survive but a chance to thrive. The foundation provides educational, financial, social and medical support whenever and wherever needed.
