On Air Now
The Capital Evening Show With Jimmy Hill 7pm - 10pm
To celebrate the release of the new album 'Loud' we present Rihanna's top 10 singles to date.
Pon De Replay shot 17 year old Rihanna to fame back in 2005. Her debut single, it sold over 4 million copies worldwide, and made it to number 2 in the UK charts.
As the lyrics suggest, Te Amo is all about Rihanna becoming the object of another woman’s desires. And as she’s wearing a thousand dollar dress by Mara Hoffman we can guess why French supermodel Laetitia Casta has eyes for RiRi!
What’s My Name is RiRi’s upcoming single which features hip-hoph-hunk Drake! The track is the second from her brand new ‘Loud’ album and has a video which features the pair getting a little close – could there be romance in the air?
Jay-Z had massive success in 2010 with his 11th album – The Blueprint 3 – and it features some of the biggest names in music – including Rihanna! It went straight to number 1 in the UK and has gone double platinum over in America.
2007’s Shut Up And Drive was Rihanna’s fifth UK Top 10 single. As the name suggests, the video features Rihanna working in a scrap yard, dancing on cars and appearing in drag races!
Don’t Stop The Music reached number 4 in the UK charts in 2008 – the music video was filmed the day after Shut Up And Drive, but Rihanna looks anything but tired!
Rude Boy is the second single from her multi-platinum selling Rated R album The amazing animated video won Best Editing at the 2010 VMAs. It reached number 1 in the States and went double platinum,
Rihanna featured on Eminem’s massive summer hit Love The Way You Lie. The video stars Megan Fox and Lost’s Dominic Monaghan and has racked up a mammoth 200 million! Eminem managed to persuade Rihanna to leave the set of her upcoming movie to perform with him – the red hot performance was voted the best of the night!
Umbrella is Rihanna’s biggest success to date! In 2007, it became Rihanna’s first number 1 single in the UK, and it stayed there for an impressive 10 weeks! This might sound amazing, but over those 10 weeks Britain was hit by heavy rain and flooding – with the press blaming it on the “Rihanna Curse”
Only Girl is the lead single from Rihanna’s fifth album – Loud – which is out now! It managed to climb to the top spot in 10 countries and is considered an international hit.
