Best Rihanna Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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!

By far her best song

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

25 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.

Her most vocally perfected song I love it - frankie44

26 Desperado

Best song of the anti


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 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

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'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 should at least be on the top 10...

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"

I love this so g

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.

31 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!

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

I'm freinds with the monster

33 Talk 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

The best song ever!

38 We All Want Love

Such a great song

39 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
