Of the 200 million records she's sold, these are the 10 hits and remixes you'll want in your workout playlist
It might appear that Rihanna has it all: nine Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles, 30 million followers on Instagram. What she doesn't have, however, is a release date for her new album Anti. Due to have debuted on TIDAL on Black Friday, the album remains under wraps. But with a supporting tour that kicks off in February, the new tunes can't be far off. In the interim, we've rounded up some of her best tracks for your workout.
The list below touches on virtually every aspect of RiRi's discography. Early successes like "Disturbia" get revisited, smashes like "Diamonds" get remixed, and lesser-known singles like "What Now" get another look. You'll also get a preview of her forthcoming album with recent cuts like "FourFiveSeconds" and "Bitch Better Have My Money."
While Rihanna is probably best known for solo pop hits and collaborations with rappers and DJs, she's added grit and allure to tracks from Shakira and Coldplay as well. In short, her strength—one of many—is versatility. With plenty of range and feistiness to spare, Rihanna's the ideal workout companion, and these are some of her finest moments.
