Today marks 10 years since the release of Rihanna’s fifth studio album Loud. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long, when we’re still listening and bopping along to those tracks daily.
The upbeat record was a huge success worldwide and was instrumental in RiRi becoming the pop-culture icon that we all know and love.
In honor of such an important music anniversary, we look back at the hit singles that the album produced.
‘Only Girl (In The World)’
Released as the lead single in September 2010, this Stargate production signaled a dancier and louder direction for the performer.
‘What’s My Name’
“The square root of sixty nine is eight something, right?” A Ri and Drake linkup always ends up in a pop masterpiece.
They don’t call her the bad gal for nothing. This seductive and irresistible piece of pop is a guilty pleasure.
You can take the girl out of the island, but you can’t take away her roots. Reggae Rihanna is our fave.
‘California King Bed’
Every great album needs a great ballad and this one does the trick more than nicely.
Cheers (Drink To That)
Sampling a part of Avril Lavigne’s most moving songs for this feel good anthem is no mean feat. Cheers!
There’s only one thing left to it. Put your speakers up and press play.
