Loud is the fifth studio album by Barbadian singer Rihanna, released in November 2010 by Def Jam Recordings. It was recorded between February and August 2010, during the singer's Last Girl on Earth Tour and the filming of her first feature film Battleship. Rihanna was the executive producer of the album and worked with many record producers, including StarGate, Sandy Vee, The Runners, Tricky Stewart and Alex da Kid. The album featured several guest vocalists, including rappers Drake, Nicki Minaj and Eminem, who is featured on the sequel to "Love the Way You Lie", titled "Love the Way You Lie. The album differed from Rihanna's 2009 release, Rated R, which featured a prominently foreboding and angry tone with dark themes and incorporated elements of hip hop, rock, and dubstep music genres. Loud featured up-tempo and pop genres, ranging from dance-pop to electro-R&B, and marked the return to her dancehall roots, which was prominent on Rihanna's first two albums Music of the Sun and A Girl like Me. The album also incorporated rock in "California King Bed" and reggae in the Caribbean inspired "Man Down". Loud received generally positive reviews from music critics, who complimented its upbeat material and Rihanna's vocal performances, while others stated that although the songs were solid, they were unfocused to each other. The album was a commercial success internationally; it debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 chart, with first week sales of 207,000 copies, the highest first week sales of her career at the time. The album entered the Canadian, Swiss and UK album charts at number one. As of 2011, the album sold over 5.7 million copies worldwide.
