I did a topic like this two years ago, but with several new hits and time for hits like ‘Work’ to bed in was interested to see what people would say to it today ~

What songs of Rihanna’s would you say are classics, not amongst the fanbase or your own personal opinion but for the General public? I’d say (talking UK terms):

Definitely classics
Only Girl
We Found Love

Bordering on classics
Take A Bow
Rude Boy
Love The Way You Lie
Don’t Stop The Music
What’s My Name?
This Is What You Came For

Maybe ‘Disturbia’ could be in the bordering category but I’m not too sure about that. There are so many other songs by her that should be classics sad.gif

For me, I wouldn't regard 'Work' bordering on a classic.

I'd say the classics are 'Umbrella', 'Rude Boy', 'We Found Love', 'Diamonds' and 'Stay'.

"Pon de Replay" and "SOS" would definitely be regarded as mid-noughties classics I think!

"We Found Love", "Diamonds" and "Umbrella" are probably her three most universally-recognised songs. In terms of collabs, "All of the Lights" and "Take Care" are probably most recognisable with "Love the Way You Lie" also due to its huge impact at the time, although I don't hear it very much any more.

"Bitch Better Have My Money" has to have some recognition I think! Could go down as a future classic.

Love The Way You Lie is definitely a classic!
