2 Love 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!

This is my favourite song ever

4 We 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

So hard to pick my favourite. They are all the best!

7 Love 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

It's heartbreaking that this masterpiece is not in the Top 5. - DCfnaf

8 S&M

This song no 2 on the billboard so deserves at least no 5 on this chart this song is damn cool

Can't get this song off my head it's the most wonderful song keep going on Riri. I hope she will make another in few days.

This is her best song by far, I love the beat, voice and video there is actually nothing wrong with this song espically the catchy chorus

I love it too dang much, absolutely one of her most iconic songs.

9 Only 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

Great song - 23MACCAja

10 Stay

WHY IS THIS NOT TOP 5! This is rihanna singing from her heart. And it sound amazing!

I love this song its definitely one of the best!

The simple beauty of this songs speaks volumes. it's so emotional and personal to rihanna but yet so unambiguous/vague it could be about anyone of us, which is why it touches people

I'm also a Rihanna Navy. This needs to be number 2! her voice is amazing in this song! She's a good singer and she CAN sing good! There's so many people saying that she CANNOT sing,showing proof that she CANNOT sing and she actually CAN sing! I'll show them a proof and MORE PROOF that she CAN sing! I love you Riri,I'm also your fan forever!

12 Don't Stop the Music

This song was Written by Michael Jackson, that's why it hit #1 - SmoothCriminal

2006:
I don't wanna do this anymore
I don't have to be the reason why
every time I walk out the door
I see him die a little more inside

Fast forward to a decade later, this is what we get.
2016:
Work, work, work, work, work, work

He see mr do me dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
So me put in work, work, work, work, work, work

What just happened, folks?!

14 Take 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

This should be higher than number 12

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.. - anuragjain

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.

This isn't her best song but is my favorite! It's powerful and it proves that she can sing! This song should of hit the top of billiboard!

17 Where Have You Been

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!

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!

One of the best dance songs from rhinanna. The video is quite nice as well..

This song is awesome!

18 Shut 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!

Shut up and drive out of here haters of this song and let the song take control! It was in a movie and is good. So shut up and drive out of here haters. Shut up and drive.

19 SOS

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!

Easily her best song. SO CATCHY AND AWESOME! SOS deserves at least top 10 on this list

Oh my god! In my opinion even though love cell's tainted love is a good song this is better than that song!

20 Love On the Brain

This should be at the top. Rihanna gave her most soulful, raw, and passionate vocal performance of her career to date in here and the song is just beautiful. I don't understand how this gem is at #53 while something as repetitive and generic as We Found Love can sit at #3. This should be number one. Period.

Before I heard this song, my favourite was always Disturbia. It was years of having that be my favourite one of hers, until I heard this one. So unexpected, and so different from any of her other hits. This song showcases her vocal ability more than any other song of hers, definitely the best!

This song is her best work till date! It shows the variety of Rihanna's music, her vocal ability and range and that old school vibe! Best song on Anti and Rihanna's discography for sure!

21 Man Down

I love this song! Сool music! Everything is perfect, Thanks Rihanna and you nice girl... - teleroy

I think man down is the most beautiful song.. It's new idea unusual and to me.. It should be in the top 10

What can I say she strong and not even chris can take her down and Man Down man that's good keep putting the awe in awesome

YOU ROCK GIRL MWAH

This song is perfect. Her voice in it is unparalleled. I LOVE narrative lyrics, let alone being combined with Reggae and a magical voice like Rihanna's. Definitely my favorite Rihanna song.

22 Te 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 - Irina2932

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

I don't understand why is track placed so low on d list... One of the rihanna's best

23 Rehab

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

Definitely this. It's much better than her new generic crap.

This is her best song by far, Umbrella 2nd, Take A Bow 3rd, Russian Rhulette 4rd, Rude Boy or Shut Up And Drive 5th.

Why is it no 26...? I'm absolutely baffled...it's lyrics are great...and the beat is so catchy...not to forget the incredibly sexy and stylish music video..both justin and rihanna look hot...it should at least be on the top 10...

24 Take Care

This song is beyond amazing. The lyrics are so intense and I love the tune. Quite melancholic. Love it.

This song is amazing and has deep meaning, why is it 37!

The song is kinda good, video is stupid. I don't like it when she's hugging drake. Like theirs not dating. They had a on again and off again relationship.

AmaZing is all I can say bout this song. AND to all the bad reviews!

25 Pon de Replay

THIS SONG IS AWESOME FOR DANCE & PARTY. LOVE IT! : )

love it

26 Desperado

Best song of the anti

BAD SONG

One of the best songs from ANTI, such a good base and soft lyrics also if I'm not wrong is one of the few nox-explicit songs from that album.
Her live performance if thus songs sounded better than the acutal song, this is an honour that only few songs by her can have. - DaisyandRosalina

27 You Da One

People you have got to vote for this song! It is so ' awesome.! Love it when she ti-i-i-i-me..! And of course.. Her voice! Addictive!

Love this song guys! This cannot be down here!
It Is one of the best songs of all time!
Rihanna.. "You the one.. That makes me love you! "
So... COOL!

The music video is not that good but the lyrics are awesome

Love this song 🎶😖 should have been in top ten...

28 Kiss It Better

Has an old school infectious beat and the way she rides this beat is beautiful. Best track easily & one of my favorites from the album

One of the best songs from her in the last few years and my favorite off of Anti...

How can this song be this low? It's her best song and top 5 easily!

This song is a classic

30 Princess 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

Great lyrics, great collaboration with Coldplay. Definitely deserves a top ten spot!

Its a great callboration so glad I got to hear these two together. Should have been higher on the list.

Though it's often forgotten about now, this is a fantastic performance from Rihanna that complements Coldplay's performance very very well. Definitely her best collab, if not song.

31 What 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. - philhenshaw

It's so deep and I can actually feel something in her voice that is so tempting, I can connect with what she exactly wants to say, that's how expressive the song is and her voice stands out.

And the most underrated song of all time award goes to...

32 The Monster

So I scroll down to place 61 just to see the BEST Eminem & Rihanna song there is, and it should be way on the top of the list. Wow... just wow.

Great collab with Eminem. Better than Love the way you lie parts 1 and 2. Just listen to it.

This is the best duet with Eminem. She killed it during he chorus and this shoukd at least be in the top 2

No. 1 easy

33 All of the Lights

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!

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.

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.

Very very god so thank you rihanna and I love you rihanna very love you

34 Wait 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.

35 Live Your Life

It is as good as rude boy

This song should be higher on this list, it's really nice.

Rihanna's own website rank #2. Here #97! This is messed up!

I like it because it sampled "Dragostea Din Tei"
MAI-EEA-HEE
MAI-EEA-HOO

The best track on Anti - Bayano1

So much feeling in there

Men this song rocks

THE BEST DESERVES NUMBER 1 FOR ME

37 Run This Town

I think this is a horrible rank for this fantastic song

This song was the best I've heard from her. It should be higher legendary song. - Crysis

Good song rated way too down..

Best rihanna song I liked

38 Hard

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!

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"

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...

Honestly I never knew how personal this song was until I explored it.

When the Chris Brown incident happened people have tried to bring Rihanna down multiple times, they accused her for being the one who had all the faults, they tought she was done, slut-shamed her and embarassed her in so many ways. This song is like a middle finger to all of that, it says she was not going to fall and both her and her career were going to stay strong (as they did).

For this reason I think this is one of the best songs on Rihanna's Rated R, I mean, sperimenting with Metal was amazing too and the song has a great "militarian" and "war" vibe with a matching video. - DaisyandRosalina

39 Fire Bomb

This is an amazing song about goodbye, one of the best!

Her first good song in a while. Some of the most underrated songs are in soundtracks. - NicholasYellow
