She’s been enchanting us with her velvety voice and voluptuous moves for more than a decade… here’s to the best of our Good Girl Gone Bad Rihanna.
So, on the anniversary of the release of her breakout album Rainy Days and Songdays, your weekly Music and Travel series celebrates Ri-Ri.
With our five fave songs from our Bajan Beauty.
We know your name
What’s My Name? feat. Drake (2010): And it was the fact that X Factor used to be able to get superstars like Ri-Ri on which made us watch it.
Ri-Ri rocks this all on her own which is, of course, hip-swivelling easy for our heroine.
It is, we know, a collaboration with her long-term on-off squeeze Torontonian Drake whom we hate for obvious reasons!
Our only girl
The Only Girl In The World (2010): And a very Good Morning America too when Ri-Ri wakes you up (and I know from Barbados).
Ri-Ri lives in Beverly Hills now with homes too in Sandy Lane back on her home island Bim and in London but we always wake up with her.
Under my sunbrella
Umbrella (2007): My new Bajan friends asked me for a slogan for Barbados on my first visit there.
Jay-Z and his friends had originally written the standard for Britney Spears but Brit’s loss is our gain.
What you wearing Rihanna?
We Found Love feat Calvin Harris (2010): I imagine the Northern Irish farmer found love in the church hall because he certainly disapproved of our sex bomb.
When she started taking off her top in his grain field.
The disenchanted alderman revealed that he hadn’t come across the superstar until he saw her from his tractor.
Did he not know she is Robyn Fenty of the Cork Fentys?
Diamonds (2012): Ri-Ri reverted to more usual locations for the video of Diamonds.
Now everyone will have their own alarm clock song call and mine is Diamonds.
For when I have a flight to catch. See I told you Rihanna gets me up in the morning.
Fourteen years of the best of our Good Girl Gone Bad… here’s to the next 14 years.
