10 Worst Rihanna Songs

Celestius

The Top Ten

1 Birthday Cake Birthday Cake

Let's see... Repeating a single word over and over until your ears bleed? Check. Awful beat that sounds like every single bad dubstep song ever made? Check. A feature from Chris Brown AFTER the assault? Check.

I don't get why this isn't #1.

On this song, Chris Brown sings: "Give it to her in the worst way/Can’t wait to blow her candles out"

Do I seriously need to explain what's wrong with this? I know it's about kinky sex, but did nobody look at this and consider the alternative interpretation this could have? When you consider what happened between Chris Brown and Rihanna, a line like this sung by him to her comes across as an abuser justifying his actions and taking delight in abusing his victim. Chris Brown already gave it to Rihanna "in the worst way"! We're supposed to find a song about this to be sexy?

This alone makes this Rihanna's worst song. The ear-bleeding music and stupid lyrics were bad enough, but when a song paints Chris Brown's abuse in a positive light, it cannot expect to get any respect from me.

Rihanna is my favorite singer. But this is her worst song. And I don't know why it's not number 1. She did better than this

EAT ALL OF THE DISGUSTING FOOD YOU WANT WITH NEON TREES I'm GONNA IGNORE THE BOTH OF YOU AND THE REST OF THEM WITH YOUR FAMILY EAT DISGUSTING BANANAS WITH YOUR BITCHES EAT MUSHROOMS GET DISABLED I DON"T CARE I'm STILL GONNA IGNORE YOU I"M VERY ANGRY WITH YOU I WANT YOU TO DIE THIS YEAR HOMETOWN BITCH POP AND COUNTRY TOOK OVER THE PLACE AND IT TREATED ME LIKE EL INFIERNO I"M HOTTER THAN HELL I'm GONNA IGNORE YOU JAPANESE JAMAICAN BITCH GRACIAS

I love Rihanna, but song is just the worst. The video is the most atrocious thing I've ever seen, especially after Chris Brown! - Aquaturtle

I almost cried by listening to this song. It's horrendous - MusicMovieMinecraftMe

This was the first sight of cringy Hip-Hop Rihanna. Plus the video is basically Spring Breakers 2 - Hotheart123

Autotuned repeating monotone robot!

Yes, repeating two different words, "Work." and "Dirt." is all it takes in the year 2016 to make a trending song. This song doesn't belong in a genre it belongs in the trash. If you spend money on this I'm so sorry for your loss

My friends from my robotics team and discussed weaponizing this song. It sounds pretty feasible, but I'm worried that peoples' taste in music is just too bad for it to work. If somebody could explain to me why people like this song enough for it to be at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, please tell me. It is the one of the most brain-dead things I've ever heard, and the video is no better, being sold solely on sex appeal.

It's awful. I don't like the composition and the lyrics. I don't know why this would be a hit. It stayed on top for 9 weeks and how. It's so boring. She just wants to show her nipples.

No melody. She's just talking. Another excuse to show her ass.

5 S&M S&M

I actually like this song. Shes a naughty girl

This song LITERALLY gives me headaches every time I hear it. Why isn't it on the top of this list? I also want to mention it got overplayed for no reason at all just like her previous hit "Umbrella".

I like this song! Why is it here

This using is to sexual just fact

6 Mad House Mad House

Hey guys, this is the intro of the album, this isn't a song so it can't be good or bad, why is this listed here? - Fan_of_Good_Music

This song sucks I mean no-one in their right mind would like it

This shouldn't be #1, but even then this sounds like the title makes it sound. - WonkeyDude98

"Madhouse? " "MADHOUSE?! " Rihanna? How could you?! You ripped off Anthrax's song title!

7 Rude Boy Rude Boy

Are you all STUPID? Putting this song on worst list?

Seriously fella (friend this song rocks if you think it is worst then you know I will... $$$$

I think this song is cool so I think this is on the wrong list

HOW is THIS song number 6? Because is about sex I suppose? This doesn't automatically means it's a bad songs, sex is just a normal thing, people exist because love AND sex, sex is not a bad thing, porn videos, this type of porn is bad.
This song is super catchy and the lyrics are not gross despite being a sex song. - DaisyandRosalina

What the heck is REHAB doing up there!? It's one of her best ever songs! Stupid people!

WHY! Is this here. Seriously, don't get me wrong, this is amazing! Get off the list, only girl

Why is this song here? People voting for this do not have much feeling for emotion. I am concerned about you people.

This song features one of Rihanna's worst vocals. She's practically shouting the chorus.
