2Love the Way You Lie
Rihanna's voice is the essence of the song.
It might be her past, or just the amazing quality of her voice, but it really sounds like she knows the pain and anger and frustration that the song conveys. The rap by eminem is invincible. Hope we get to here such divinity forever
Awesome music, great voice, beautiful lyrics, superb video - perfect song!
This is awesome! Love her voice! And the rap is by eminem, also cheering! I think this song should be listed as number one!

3Russian Roulette
Amazing song really shows vocal range and passion. Favorite rihanna song.
This is such a great song.. Rihanna is so talented and her voice sounds really beautiful. The rhythm, the lyrics, the video are simply perfect.
This song is just beautiful... Rihanna has a great voice and her music and lyrics are simply beautiful
I also like unfaithful and love the way you lie
Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take the gun, and count to three...

5We Found Love
Collaboration here with Calvin Harris makes for a great dance track resembling something of an epic piece for those party-goers and dancers on the dance floors all over. I would love to be at the Concert to hear this one live - and watch the crowd live!
What, 13th? You kidding me?
It's amazing
Yellow diamonds in the light and we're standing side by side!
We found love in a hopeless place!
A very good song from the album 'Talk That Talk' and a must listen song for all rihanna fans. A great song with a wonderful beat and music. It should at least be in top 10
Best song ever, it should be at no. 1

6Only Girl (In the World)
It has a really catchy tune (and in the music video shes hot!
This should have been in the top 10. This song is like amazing and the beat is so catchy. While umbrella is a nice song, this song is so rihanna some how. The beat is catchy and sexier then any of the songs above!
Just amazing I have no words to say, I love this song very much. Superb, loving, melody. I love Rhianna's voice. Sometimes I will hear this song, the most I hear love is cry, but I love this song so much. Thank you

7Love the Way You Lie, Pt. II
This song is just beautiful, isn't it? It's a shame that it has been used as an album bonus track only as it probably not get recognized as a single. It hasn't been recognized enough and I think it's fantastic. Eminem's rap is brilliant as well but Rihanna's voice is just stunning in this. So Just VOTE!
This song is the best! Its way better than part 1. Her voice has so much emotion! Especially the part where she sings "But you'll always be my hero even though you've lost your mind"... I am so in love with the lyrics! Awesome singer world's best rapper= MIND BLOWING SONG!
I can listen to this all day... All year... Every time! It's amazing!
Good song with catchy high pitch...
Can become number one no doubt for sure... This song is wonderful

13Take a Bow
These song is awesome, as it combines a lot of elements in it, it's sad but has a very great and entertaining tune which makes it so fun to listen to, it's supposed to be number 1 in this poll, because in my opinion its one of the best songs rihanna ever made, if not the best
How is this song all the way down here? Her new stuff is just horrid - that pop mainstream style - this is the true rihanna
this song is the best I love this song and good girl gone bad they are very beautiful an sad
Ain't nuthin' like deez song 4 riri

14Don't Stop the Music
This song was Written by Michael Jackson, that's why it hit #1


This song is even better when you clap your hands along with the singing

This is the best of rihanna according to me it should be in best of ten. This is.

I was shocked that this was top23... Really... Personally this owns umbrella... So catchy... And you always feel like dancing whenever you hear the song.. So umm I guess you have to vote for it UP! QUICK! VOTE VOTE VOTE!
One of the best dance songs from rhinanna. The video is quite nice as well..
Great Rihanna vocals followed by a catchy Calvin Harris tune. Great combination. This songs is stuck in my head with the dubstep etching into your conscious. One of Rihanna's best songs yet!

17California King Bed
Amazing Song.. Rihanna Shows her skills in a slow song not her favourite genre.. but she does an amazing job.. and the tune is also amazing..


This song is EXTREMELY underrated. This song is unique unlike the other songs she has had recently that makes it so good. Also the lyrics of this song is genius. This is the BEST song from her album Loud hands down
Come on people, this is the best ballads she had. She should make more this kind of song rather than a rubbish S&M.

18Shut Up and Drive
WHAT!? Are you serious!? This is BY FAR her best song on her album album. GOOD GIRL GONE BAD!
This list is absolute crap. This should be in the top 5 as should Rehab and Take A Bow. Good Girl Gone Bad is easily her best album.
This here is the best song I EVER HEARD! Good girl gone bad is simply her Best album! TRUE!

19Man Down

21Te Amo
very very low place for such a beautiful track. Personally, I don't like Rihanna but I became more tolerant to her when this masterpiece came out


This song is the first song that I heard in radio and I fell love with rihanna... It is very low song and totally amazing song... Rihanna always rocked... And this song should be in atlest top ten so please vote... And waiting another rihannas mesmerising song... Go roc it
How cm this be so down... It is far better and worth listening than UMBRELLA Te Amo Rihanna
More comments about Te AmoListen to sample

The best song of rihanna... I'm totally confused and surprised that it is not even in the top 3... Unbelievable lyrics, absolutely spellbound after hearing it... One of my best songs which I have heard till date
This is her best song by far, Umbrella 2nd, Take A Bow 3rd, Russian Rhulette 4rd, Rude Boy or Shut Up And Drive 5th.
Definitely this. It's much better than her new generic crap.
More comments about RehabListen to sample

Awesome song! What is it doing so way down here? People you guys need to know that her new songs have no match with the old ones!
Another proof to Rihanna's ability to make us dance for a number while she can touch our heart with songs like Love the way you lie...
Gotta be the best, combine Rihanna's voice, some empowering lyrics and multisyllabic rhymes, and young jeezy has a pretty good verse at the end. "Brilliant, resilient, fan mail from 27 million"

24Talk That Talk
This song is really rocking. Much better than many of her other songs. It definitely should be among the top ten.
It must be in the second place right after umbrella because in spite of it is not a romantic song but I feel calm and happy when I listen to it and I have never felt bored of it
I think it Must Be In The Top Ten Not No 31
More comments about Talk That TalkListen to sample

Just listen it... It is the best ever ever and ever...
Epic song... Great song... Should be number 1
It touches the heart...
This one is epic guys and gals...
I was shocked to see this down here.
Just awesome. Listen to it guys...
And yeah - vote this above all the un-rihanna-ish crap she is coming out with these days...
A girl in our school talent show sang this song.

The best song ever! Its funky, stylish, and original I'm surprised it isn't number 1! In my opinion it's the best songrihanna ever made! This is th rihanna everybody wants back! SOS!
This was her first number one hit and for a reason this was Rihanna!

28Hate That I Love You

Rihanna's voice sounds awesome with Ne-yo's... his voice is magical! Amazing! Its a perfect match! Its really a shame this song didn't get as much appreciation as her other songs! According to me its a masterpiece! It moves me every time I listen to it! Its a beautiful track! <3 <3 <3
P.S. - Rihanna looks stunning in the video!
One of her best songs by far, this has much more meaning than some of her recent ones, please vote for this!

I love this song. Cheers to rihanna! She is the only girl in the world who can make songs like this. This song should be in the top ten. I believe it's worth it! She is so talented. She's a real bad girl! Good girl gone bad!
This song is so amazing! It really stands out. This is one of very few new songs of hers that I love! You rule Rihanna!

30Princess of China
Come on, it's a great collaboration with coldplay. Should've been higher on the list. The music and the bass tunes are real good. Chris martin's and rihanna's vocals in this one make a great masterpiece
Its a great callboration so glad I got to hear these two together. Should have been higher on the list.
Great lyrics, great collaboration with Coldplay. Definitely deserves a top ten spot!

31What Now
I love this song, she sounds a bit different but its lovely I think everybody must listen to it...
I don't like Rihanna, but this song came on the radio and I actually really like it. I'm surprised it isn't more popular, and it's definitely strange to see it so low... it's a very good song.


This song is the best of all the songs sung by rihanna

34Wait Your Turn
AMAZING SONG... Should BE AT top 10... One of the most underrated... Rihanna rocks in the song... For me its the number 1. Song of rihanna,
Easily her most underrated song, especially from the Rated ARE album. Should be in the top 10 along with Rehab, Take A Bow, Shut Up And Drive etc. Pathetic list at the moment.
My favorite Rihanna song point, blank, period.

43Drunk On Love
For me, her best song. Very beautiful and powerful, should be a single! So underrated
Listen to sample

44All of the Lights
She is a featured artist on this song but she makes it 10x better. Kanye and Riri are both awesome in this song. It should be higher even if it's not her song. After all love the way you lie is top 5 then this should definitely be at least top ten.
I LOVE THIS SONG! She sounds so pretty in it and its really good I love this song also listen to the song "Raining men" by her and Nicki Minaj!
Most the best songs on this list aren't Rihanna songs but just feature her and this is one of them. Best song on the list and she is brilliant in the video.

This is her most languid song, it runs on your body like hot chocolate. This is Rihanna in her most sensual.
I hate to say it, but Rihanna is best when she's being sexual, and this song is proof of that. Her vocals are beautifully seductive and raspy, enough to arouse anyone listening. Definitely one of her best.
This song should most definitely be in the top 5 because it is on my favorite song list

Stupid in love is a really good song because it shows that she can be emotional and down to earth. Really good song I have been a fan of hers every since she came out! Hope she keeps up her good progress towards her music
