Since 2005, Rihanna's music has been, for better or worse, inescapable. She's undoubtedly one of the premiere Pop divas at the moment, and with her sixth album in seven years being released in two months, what better time is there for us to take a look back at the amazing music Rihanna has given us so far? In this tribute, I will count down my Top 50 Rihanna songs from her "Music of the Sun" days to the now-closing "LOUD" era. Enjoy................

ooh...such perfect timing with all the hype around "We Found Love" (though it's a pity that song didn't make the cut-off to be in your countdown, it's faaaabulous). ;)

I own all her albums bar Music Of The Sun, so while there will probably be at least a few songs I don't know, I'm still really excited for this! :D

will her "featurings" be included, or only songs that have her as the lead artist?

^ I've decided to include only the songs in which she is the lead artist. Hope you don't mind. :) And I'm glad that I have the opportunity to introduce you to some of her lesser-known tracks. :D

nah, I don't really care much for "Live Your Life", "Run This Town", or "Love The Way You Lie" anyway. "If I Never See Your Face Again" is okay, but really, her only featured appearance that I'd consider Top 50-worthy is "Who's That Chick?", but that's hardly a glaring omission either.

at this point, however, I think I'd put "We Found Love" in my Top 10. :lol:

Wow, Top 10? :o Looking at my Top 10 list of RiRi tunes, I don't see any place for "We Found Love". :lol: At least, not yet.

aw, poor "We Ride"...the lowest song on your countdown and her biggest US flop to date, SO undeserved! it's baffling that "Rockstar 101" could manage to go Top 70, whereas "We Ride" couldn't even crack the Hot 100. :-?

I'm not a big fan of reggae/Caribbean-sounding Rihanna, so I'm not a big fan of most of A Girl Like Me (besides the singles, "P.S.", and "A Million Miles Away"). I'd prolly rank those two album tracks right round where you did, if they'd make my list at all.

We Ride is quite underrated actually
And seeing those covers, i still think that long hair is the best for Rihanna :-?

:o at all the love for "We Ride". It made the countdown by the skin of its teeth. :lol: Anyway, two more for the night and I'll reveal another five tomorrow. :)

:o "Hate That I Love You" isn't one of my FAVORITE RiRi singles, but No. 47 is really harsh! just thinking of her singles, I'd certainly pick it over "Rehab", "Rockstar 101", or "Man Down", not to mention several inferior album tracks (*cough* "Lemme Get That" *cough*). I think I have a soft spot for it 'cause I remember it as the single that helped turn things back around for the GGGB era after SUAD under-performed here.

"Complicated" is...okay. I'd prolly put it a bit higher than you did, but not much.

Oh, gosh! I hope we don't end up disagreeing too much with my rankings. All of the aforementioned songs ranked higher than "Hate That I Love You" did. :-?

"We Ride" & "Hate That I Love You" >>>>>>>>

"We Ride" is very underrated. It's a beautiful song, one of my personal favorites from A Girl Like Me and she looks so frkin' gorgeous on the video.

"Hate That I Love You" was a big hit here but seems it's overshadowed by the rest from Good Girl Gone Bad. It's an enjoyable song but for some reason it lacks of the "it" thing somehow.

"Kisses Don't Lie" was my jam too. I love the reggae feels on it.

Don't really care about the other twos though, lol.

:lol: no worries, I hope I'm not being too negative! I'm gonna love this ride no matter where songs end up.

(though it does hurt my heart a bit to hear that RS101 has yet to appear on your countdown).

Hate That I Love You! A cool collaboration. I used to like it so much in 2007. Now i think it's just okay. But it's definitely a forgotten hit for her, overshadowed by Umbrella, DSTM, TAB and Disturbia from GGGB era!

I love countdowns from artists I actually love and own albums by :lol:

My thoughts so far:

We Ride: Meh. Never been a fan.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love: Cute, but not her best.

Kisses Don't Like: I absolutely LOVE this song, it's one of my faves on AGLM! It's so catchy and I love the rocky sound 8-)

Hate That I Love You: I used to love this, but it got boring :( Ri sounds great on it though.

Complicated: I need to listen to Loud more, I hardly remember this :oops: :lol:
