REVIEWS
Average points: 3.16 (Reviews: 55)
***
erneut äusserst eintönig und verzichtbar
***
Gerade noch 3* für den nächsten Experimental-R&B-Track.
******
Geht in die Richtung von The Weeknd und co und gefällt mir darum natürlich ausserordentlich gut! Hat zudem Single Potential.
***
Unglaublich wie viele Leute hier mitgearbeitet haben, aber keine starke Nummer hingezaubern konnten!
"Needed Me" ist einer der besseren Songs auf dem Album...Problem liegt aber daran das mir diese Nummer nicht mehr Wert ist als eine 3*...
*****
Ja, gibt's denn das: Da bewegt sich die gute Rihanna doch tatsächlich auf Spuren der extravaganten Künstlerin FKA Twigs, denn verhuschte, sich immer wieder auflösende Elektronik herrscht hier vor. Mir gefällt so was grundsätzlich schon gut, und hier wurde auch gute Arbeit geleistet. Aus meiner Sicht sogar ein kleines, verstecktes Album-Highlight.
******
.
***
Die Musik erinnert auch mich etwas an die genannten The Weeknd oder FKA twigs, und ich mochte deren beide Alben letztes Jahr sehr. Aber irgendetwas stimmt hier überhaupt nicht, es wirkt zu langweilig, und Rihanna's Stimme passt hier nicht so zur Musik als das es mir gefallen könnte. 3*
**
Ich brauch das nicht. So sperrig und verstörend.
***
ein Duett mit The Weeknd würde sich anbieten…knapp aufgerundete 2.5 für diese Electro R&B-Nummer…
**
Net wat beter dan Work maar niet direct wat ik nodig had.
****
Un titre incisif qui finit par convaincre.
**
....needed me brauche ich nicht - ohrenbetäubendes Gezische und Rihanna schimpfend und fluchend auch nicht -...
***
Rihanna versprüht auch hier wieder den Charme eines gelangweilten Faultiers und nölt sich durch einen ebenso nett wie belanglos produzierten Song. Musik, für die es sich zu schlafen lohnt.
*
Langweilig...
***
"The Hills" (The Weeknd) hört man hier auf jeden Fall raus. Die Nachfolgesingle von "Work" steuert bereits auf die Top 20 der US-Charts zu. Gute 3*
*****
Starker Song, in dem vor allem die sich auflösenden und "verwaschenen" Elektroniktöne stark dominieren.
**
Nee.
**
▒ Een voor mij persoonlijk toch een zwak plaatje uit eind januari 2016 van de nu 28 jarige Barbadiaanse zangeres: "Robyn Rihanna Fenty", alias: "Rihanna" !!! Maar smaken verschillen ☺!!!
**
Sie macht allzu oft scheiß Musik wie das hier.
***
...seelenlos und uninspiriert...
*
dramatisch slecht!
*
Het is me echt een raadsel waarom juist 'Needed Me' wél aan dreigt te slaan en 'Kiss It Better', dat minstens 100 keer beter is dan dit, juist niet. Met 'Work' heeft Rihanna een trend ingezet om de meest irritante platen van haar album uit te brengen en ik ben bang dat die trend voorlopig nog niet wordt verbroken. Dit is zelfs nog erger dan 'Work' en verdient het niet eens om een hit te worden, dat is veel te makkelijk. Mensen, kom tot bezinning en richt je tot 'Kiss It Better', want dat is wél een goede plaat.
**
Schliesse mich meinem Vorredner Werner an und gehe noch eine runter - schlicht ein riesiger Haufen langweiliger Sch****e!!!
****
gut
*

RUBBISH!
****
RV heeft gelijk. Voor mij is het ook een raadsel waarom deze Needed Me het beter doet dan Kiss It Better. Maar dat wil niet zeggen dat dit een slechte plaat is. En dat Youuuuu Neeeeeeded Me blijft ook lekker heletijd in je hoofd hangen. Rihanna is weer helemaal lekker bezig.
*
Gewoonweg verschrikkelijk. Daarmee heb ik genoeg gezegd
*****
Ich bin auch kein Rihanna-Fan mehr. Ich muss aber sagen, dass mir "Needed Me" nach einiger Zeit doch ziemlich gut gefällt. Irgendwie gefällt mir dieser verzerrte Produktion und das in die länge gezogen gesungen "Needed Me". Für die Höchstnote reichts nicht ganz, aber 5* sind bei diesem Durchschnitt ja so zu sagen die Höchstnote ..
*****
Het heeft zeker iets.

Für mich einfach perfekt auf Rihanna zugeschnitten. Mein Highlight von Anti.
****
Ich kann hiermit richtig gut leben - irgendwie spannend anzuhören.
****
This is rather interesting. The throbbing electro beat really makes it quite memorable, and despite not doing a whole lot the chorus is pretty decent. 3.75
**
It's crap.
**
...weniger...
**
So schlecht wie der Song ist muss das ja zumindest in den USA ein grosser Hit werden. Langweilig und nichtssagend, passt immerhin perfekt zu ihren letzten Songs. Wenn man schon eine durchsichtige Bluse braucht um Aufmerksamkeit zu heischen... Gute 2.
***
Needs a few listens to truly get into it but its a good song with effective production. 5*

Ok not so good now. 3.5

Ihre große Hitparadezeit scheint vorbei zu sein. Witzigerweise beginnt sie mir aber gerade mit solchen Titel erst zu gefallen.
Nach "Too good", der zweite aktuelle Titel mit Potential.
***
Die Produktion ist schlimm, das Lied an sich vertretbar.
***
De hitpotentie is ver te zoeken maar verder kan ik dit wel beter hebben dan haar 'andere' singel Kiss It Better.
*
Die Frau hat so eine schöne Stimme, aber die "Musik", wenn man das so nenen kann.....
****
Yeah I quite like this too. More substantial than Work, but not sure if I like it as much just yet. 4.3*

*****
Her best single this era, I really like how sinister this sounds.
****
If you follow the Billboard charts, you get used to a trend wherein a big name artist releases a new album, and you can be ensured that because of the highly concentrated interest in that first week, you'll potentially see a number of new entries on the charts the following week from album tracks that will go away the next week. A lot of people are annoyed by this but I love it from a pure market study perspective. You see an artist throw 10 or so songs into the ring without any focused promotion, and it becomes interesting to see which songs the public latch onto the most, either in the short or long term. A lot of labels use this as a great gauge for picking singles and I'm sure that's how "Needed Me" became one.

Because when I first listened to "ANTI", this track really didn't stick out to me. DJ Mustard's beat is kind of unsettling, and the song doesn't really have a traditional pop hook. But it's proven to be a song that crept up on me, perhaps befitting of its gradual climb, so much so that it's just become Rihanna's longest charting song on the Hot 100 ever, and with some more left in the tank most likely.

I can't really articulate what really works with this. Rihanna has some solid variety in her delivery, but I suppose it's interesting to hear something that sticks out as different like this does. In a time when more and more artists are chasing trends to sound the same, I've gained a lot of respect for Rihanna for doing her own thing. 4.1
****
This has grown on me as well (as have all the ANTI tracks in all fairness). I just love how much is going on without it being in your face. When looking back on Rihanna's career, I wouldn't compare it favourably to a lot of her output and am more than surprised that this is her longest charting track in the States, but the charts have changed since the days of Good Girl Gone Bad, Loud or Talk That Talk so I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised at all.
**
Ein schäbiges Abfallprodukt einer Dame mit abgelaufenem Verfalldatum. Mehr gibts hier nicht zu sagen.
***
This is much better than expected.

Firstly, for a DJ Mustard production, this is different to his usual shtick. I'm also fond of the way he dices up his producer watermark at the start of the song to fit in with the beat. It's something small, but rest assured Mr Dijon Macfarlane, it didn't go unnoticed.

But secondly, and more importantly, it continues to signal Rihanna's change in musical direction. I echo Hijinx's sentiments in that I respect Rihanna's efforts to do something different, and would much prefer something like this over, let's say, Maroon 5's latest attempt at making a boring, focus-grouped tropical house song.

This could even become a 4* with time.

3.5*
**
Weniger..

Saai, traag R&B-plaatje. Wel ietsje beter dan 'Work'..

sagt mir nicht sonderlich zu...
