It may have been her mentor Jay-Z’s house, but Rihanna turned Brooklyn’s Barclays Center into her own personal club during the second of a two-night stand at the arena for her Diamonds World Tour. After a somewhat slow start, the Caribbean queen found her groove during a reggae-centric section featuring bumping grinders such as “Rude Boy” and “What’s My Name?” But it was toward the end, with a string of fist-pumping hits going from “We Found Love” to “Where Have You Been,” that she made it one massive rave. Her most affecting moments, though, came on ballads like Unapologetic’s “What Now” that demonstrated she was more than just a party girl.
