Transcripts - Pop artists album covers

  • 1. Rihanna’s first album had her name centred on the album cover in order for the fans to recognise her first album. Her next album had an extreme close up of her face only with the name of the album at the bottom of the cover. This shows that she is more known so people will recognise her album without having to have her name on the album. Rihanna uses dark colours a lot of the time for her album covers. This is used to represent her type of music in the album. However, she does have the ‘Loud’ album cover which has her bright hair as one of the main colours; along with the her matching lipstick.
  • 2. Taylor Swifts album covers use bright colours throughout all of them. Her hair is used as one of the main colours. In her first two albums, her hair is centred. She uses bright colours like, purple, blue, and red. After her third album, Taylor Swift shifts her music and style into more pop instead of country pop. In her forth album (when she shifts), Taylor uses the colour red as a colour on her album and as the name of the album. Red is seen as dangerous and daring which could give the message that she is changing as an artist. In her fifth album, Taylor named it ‘1989’, the year she was born. The cover is in the style of a polaroid photo which is what was used in the 1980. She uses pale colours in her final album. It is an image of herself but we can’t see her eyes.
  • 3. Michael Jackson albums use all different colours: black, white, blue, red, and green. In all of his albums, Michael Jackson is somewhere in them. In the first three of his albums, he is in the centre of the album. However, in the other two shown he is slightly ‘hidden’. In the forth album, Michael Jackson is covered up but if you look closely at the cover, the statue is Michael Jackson. In the fifth one, Michael Jackson’s eyes are shown. Because his eyes are very distinct and unique, you can tell that it is Michael Jackson’s eyes., therefore, his album. He was nicknamed ‘the king of pop’.
  • 4. In all of Madonna’s albums, she is the main image on the cover. Her albums have a certain amount of sexuality portrayed in them. In the first, second and fifth album shown, they are black and white. The third and forth are in colour. Her albums generally are named after a song in her album. E.g. Like a Virgin, Like a Prayer, Madonna.
  • 5. In her first four albums, Beyoncé is shown in the centre of the cover. Her outfits in each one are quite revealing. The first one, she is wearing silver chains as a top. In the second one, she is wearing a low cut top. In the third one she is naked and covering herself up. The forth album, she is wearing a fur waistcoat. On all her album covers, her name is bigger than the album name, especially in the first one. This shows that the fans may not know her albums just from the name of the album. Her final album is very simple. It is called ‘Beyoncé’ and has a black background with her name in bold in the centre. This makes the album cover very striking and recognisable.
  • 6. In all of Justin Timberlake’s albums, he is shown in some way. The first album shows his face clearly so the fans of ‘nsync’ recognise him and buy his album. The second album shows his full body and yet you have to look closely to know that it is him in the picture. This is done because the fans will already know him from his first album. His third album is slightly different from his first two albums in the sense that his eyes are covered up. The album is called ‘The 20/20 Experience’. This is referring to vision, therefore explaining the image of an opticians equipment covering his eyes. The only part of the album cover which tells us that it is Justin Timberlake is the ‘JT’ which shows that his fans will instantly know that it is a Justin Timberlake album from either the image or the title of the album. His forth album is part 2 of ‘The 20/20 Experience’. In this album cover, nowhere does it say Justin Timberlake meaning that his fans will know that it is him because he has used the same picture but changed the colours to much darker.
