It is 15 years since the debut single 'Pon de Replay' came out, the song that started it all for Rihanna.






It peaked at #2 in the UK when it was released in August 2005.


What do you make of this song?

We love this legendary BOP *.*

I remember the first time I heard the song and watched the video on KISS TV in 2005 in my living room, I knew she was going to be a star. Crazy to think that she was just 17 when she released this banger of a debut single.

Pon De Replay has really aged well too! The song still goes off.

I remember buying the CD single in ASDA along with GA's Long Hot Summer. laugh.gif All through that summer holiday the music channels were all about this and Don't Cha. heart.gif Such a strong debut single from her and imo it has stood the test of time. It's impossible not to bop to it whenever it comes on. Those earrings though. tearsmile.gif

I genuinely really didnít like this at all back in 2005 and I thought sheíd be one of those one or two hit wonders type acts. Iíll admit it now I got her so wrong.

The song itself has grown a lot! Iíd love it if come out today. Weirdly I donít think itís aged like it still sounds current and could actually work as being a hit now. Itís a great track looking back and she does possess star quality and attitude in the video as well.

This always sounds perfect in a club or during warm weather.

I think everyone thought that thought that, until 'SOS' came along the general consensus was that she'd just fade away. I don't think anyone could predict she'd go on to become what she did.

It's always fun when it's played on a night out. I only really occasionally go back to it by choice though.

BUMP

Didn't see her having the success that she gone to have. After If It's Lovin That You Want', I thought that she would fade away, I'm glad that I was proved wrong.

Even with SOS it seemed more like she'd got lucky and become a two-hit wonder. It wasn't really until Umbrella / Good Girl Gone Bad as anyone started taking her seriously as a pop force.
