This is definitely my favorite Rihanna album. I like every song on here and I think every song could’ve been a single. Luckily, The album spun off six singles (and a sequel of another one).
My top five songs on this album are:
WHAT’S MY NAME (feat. Drake) – This is my favorite song from Rihanna. The beat is so infectious; I have it on repeat all of the time and never get sick of it. Her 8th #1 hit.
ONLY GIRL (IN THE WORLD) – The chorus of this is amazing. I love how it’s so different from the verses. Never got sick of this either. Her 9th #1.
MAN DOWN – I really think reggae and Caribbean flavors fit Rihanna the best for obvious reasons, and she sounds the most comfortable singing these kinds of songs. This is a great song with a great video.
COMPLICATED – A really good up-tempo dance song with rock elements on it. At first I didn’t really like her voice on this song but the more I listened, the more it grew on me.
S&M – This took some time to grow on me, but it does have a great beat. Her 10th #1 (thanks to the remix with Britney Spears).
Other great tracks are: LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE (PART II) and CALIFORNIA KING BED.
This version also features a fun DVD with behind the scenes footage.
