    because AIWFCIY is still charting in a dozen countries from around the globe and bc it begins surging on September 1st.

    Only 5 months and 2 weeks to go until legend strikes again.

    The interesting thing with "Unfaithful" is, I feel like A LOT of people don't know the title of the song. The word "murderer" is so emphasized towards the end of the chorus that many people think it's the title.

    No, that wasn't my point. My point is:

    huge worldwide Youtube / Spotify numbers ≠ global signature hit

    Take A Bow with its disproportional numbers in Brazil, Korea and SEA is just one of many examples.

    What's My Name (2010): 800 Million views (disproportionately from the US / UK)
    Man Down (2011): 700 Million views (disproportionately from continental Europe)
    Love On The Brain (2016): 550 Million streams on Spotify (disproportionately from the US)

    All of these songs have massive worldwide numbers, but they are regional signature hits at best. They are not on the same level as her global signature hits (Umbrella, DSTM, LTWYL, OG, WFL, Diamonds, Stay, Work, PDR).
    I'm surprised "Man Down" was THAT big in parts of Europe, it's one of her most 'Urban'-sounding singles by far.

    In Asia I'd say her signatures are "Diamonds" (BY FAR), "Stay", "We Found Love", "Umbrella", "Work", "Unfaithful" and "Take A Bow".

    It will become a hit there in June. Also it is already more successful than the 98 - OUT lead by Miss Knowles

    Surprised at WMN?. That song is so dull and bland to me. Never got the love for it and never understood it's success. I would have thot that Rude God would be there instead of it.
    Hoodrats still be bumping WMN? to this day. I actually heard it blaring out of somebody’s car two hours ago.

    RB should actually be in that top 10 but no further than #8 because it doesn’t stack up to her modern ratchet classics.

    Does it have any chance to be #1?
    Not that it matters, because clearly it's a juggernaut already.

    "Russian Roulette" is my favorite Rihanna single ever .. IMO it is her ultimate best single.

    ... but in terms of relevance (which is what's being discussed here) it is not really one of Rih's most impactful singles or among her signature songs (unfortunately)

    A classique in Norway.

    It was a hit here, but radio half-boycotted it and never played it again after it left the Top 10. As a result, people forgot about it before the streaming age began.
