    Oh, yes! I just called this song to mind two weeks ago and here it is. Well, the video is absurd, but the track still stunning. Many good memories of 'Umbrella', 'Talk That Talk' (for me, another surprise in your chart), 'Man Down', 'Pour It Up, 'Russian Roulette', 'Te Amo' and 'California King Bed', of course.
    Way too much Rihanna!

    Hello Akini

    Yay at the Rihanna domination. I look at these songs and think "why won't RiRi deliver gems like these anymore?"

    I don't even think there's a single track i'd remove as either not heard or not keen. Perfect top 20. <3

    Absolute highlights though

    01.(RE) Rihanna - S&M (Best Comeback)
    02.(RE) Rihanna - Umbrella (feat. Jay-Z)
    03.(RE) Rihanna - Diamonds
    15.(RE) Rihanna - We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris)
    17.(RE) Rihanna - FourFiveSeconds (feat. Kanye West & Paul McCartney)

    I'd be on the floor shaking if Rihanna released a new single that ranked alongside the above elite group of songs better known as "OMG!!!!!!!11 AMAZING"

    I'm a little surprised you were drawn the most to the track about having to share your man with other lovers. I mean, who wouldn't want seven straight days of Akini?

    The pride is real I'm usually not too enticed by all the superhero-expanded-universe movies, but the critical acclaim, commercial mega-success, and cultural significance of this one have really piqued my interest.

    • Aw What an epic tRIbute! No "Birthday Cake" for the occasion, though? ;)
    • It's a little unexpected to see "S&M" above the likes of "Diamonds" and "Umbrella", but I don't mind! Fitting for some frisky festive fun.
    • I like how several of her features got a chance to shine here too - including that oft-forgotten M5 flop!

    Yet another chart that's so good it hurts, Akini!

    Glad you like so many songs from yesterday's chart. I think the "S&M" video is fun, and about as PG-13 as it could've been, lyrical content considered.

    I'm glad "Umbrella" and "Diamonds" are among your elite class, as they're my clear Top 2 from RiRi.

    I think she still has it within her to deliver some more high calibre songs. Anti was experimental, with some experiments producing more satisfying results than others, but Rihanna always figures it out eventually.

    I think I was drawn to it because it was one of the first songs I'd heard on the subject matter that didn't outright reject it. The story is interesting, and you see so many examples of it in every day life.

    I plan on seeing it again this weekend actually. It's the first time I'm actually paying to see a movie in theatres twice.

    Nope! He is not invited to the celebration.

    I have so many fond memories attached to "S&M". I was super obsessed with it when I first heard it. I still think it could be her catchiest song ever, though it's not quite my favourite from her.

    Quote Originally Posted by phoenix98

    Yeah, I listened to her entire singles catalogue yesterday actually. She's had such a career, and hopefully still has lots more in the tank!

    That describes Rihanna's discography to a T!

    Thanks, Paul!

    I have mixed feelings about 'Lemon', it's awful and catchy at one and the same time. However, this Janet's 'Feedback' is a wonderful reentry, congrats! Many memories of this song, too.

    "Lemon" was a grower for me. I thought it was awful the first time I heard it.

    "Feedback" has aged well!

    Ah, too true. Usually it's always "You've got another man/woman? OK, we're done, and here's my furious and/or heartbroken anthem." "Weekend" acknowledges how situations like that aren't always so simple/black-and-white (especially when there's feelings involved.)

    Damn, that blockbuster is even setting new Akini records!

    I wasn't expecting to not recognize so many But I guess that's probably (at least partially) the point? Huge thanks for taking the time to link to everything! It certainly represents your decade and genre-spanning tastes. "Runaround Sue" is a classic, "Spanish Harlem" is ringing some bells (but mostly makes me think of Elton John's "Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters"), "Haemorrhage" takes me back to my radio-listening youth, and both "Redbone" + "Mama's Broken Heart" were added to my library entirely thanks to you (though I'd forgotten just how brilliant the "Mama's Broken Heart" video is!)

    How'd your mix go over in the game?

    • "Make Me Feel" has me HOOKED! Somehow, that mouth/tongue-clicking background effect works brilliantly The video is a visual treat too, and it's unreal how she can look SO stunning in so many completely different styles. I owe you for encouraging me to dip my toe in Janelle's waters with "Cold War", and now I'm gladly drowning in this one!
    • Love the retro-Janet throwback! Even as a self-proclaimed fan, it took several years before I finally gave her first two albums a try (partially because they were really hard to come across legally, but their reputations definitely played a role in my reluctance too.) I can understand why she basically quarantines them off from the rest of her catalog, but they're really not entirely bad.
    • Looks like Kacey didn't quite hit the mark with these latest offerings? Admittedly, they do make me miss the sassy, upbeat (and insightful) fun of "Follow Your Arrow" and "Biscuits"...but she was already catching some flack for "Biscuits" sounding too similar to FYA, so it makes sense to deliver something different for our first tastes of album #3.

    Yet another chart that gives me all kinds of feels, Akini!

    Aw, I don't think you appreciate Christina enough, but that's a story (and mission) for another day.

    I definitely agree that the original version has better lyrics, though. In fact, I prefer the original to the remix; it's just that I love the all-female energy on the remix, and the performance was so divalicious that I couldn't resist it.

    Yeah, and even though they wouldn't work for me, I think timesharing agreements could work for other people.

    And would you believe it's sold out for a second weekend in a row here?

    Yeah, I was definitely trying to introduce people to songs I felt they might not have heard.

    I discovered that Fuel song through American Idol actually!

    It's one song per round pitted against one song from the other 23 mixtapes. I was in the Top 5 at one point in time, but Kylie's "Breathe" pushed me out of the cumulative Top 10 last round.

I owe you for encouraging me to dip my toe in Janelle's waters with "Cold War", and now I'm gladly drowning in this one!
    Yay! I'm really happy to hear you like it.

I can understand why she basically quarantines them off from the rest of her catalog, but they're really not entirely bad.
    Provided work cools down a bit over the next few weeks so I can have more slow/easy days to really explore Janet's catalogue, expect her to appear consistently over the course of the next...four to five months.

Admittedly, they do make me miss the sassy, upbeat (and insightful) fun of "Follow Your Arrow" and "Biscuits"...but she was already catching some flack for "Biscuits" sounding too similar to FYA, so it makes sense to deliver something different for our first tastes of album #3.
    The songs are a bit tamer than I anticipated, but I will revisit them and see if there's any hidden magic.

    Happy to see Janelle killing it on your chart. Nice that Cold War resurfaced too.

    Melodrama and raw sensuality - that about sums up my music taste!

    I've really been enjoying her lately. I think her role in Moonlight really made me take notice of her as a singer, and I'm disappointed that it took so long to discover her brilliance!
