  16. So happy for Rihanna..really like this song. Rihanna looks like she "has some anger" in her..left over from the CB incident..makes the video better. Guys have a way of doing that to us girls..in different ways. Speaking of different ways..Tiger Woods..don't know what to say?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Rihanna's video is really DOPE!! Guessin she's referencing the last scene from Full Metal Jacket with those mickey mouse ears, which is real sharp of her to do.

    ReplyDelete
  18. i love the video rihanna keep doing your thing

    ReplyDelete
  19. Its like rihanna is going downhill into this slutty persona she needs to snap out of it and be RiRi not this super crazy super tough ego she is portraying. We know you hurt girl but just do you...

    ReplyDelete
  20. the only thing hard is my love for rihanna maybe not her best video but very cool kinda a diva rip off if you ask me but whatever.... ;) loved your randb list very nice

  21. You have to include Lions Tigers Bears by Ms. Sullivan! Oh well at least you recognized her.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow that r&b list was off the chain you totally got it right. Also Jason DeRulo isn't really r&b.

    ReplyDelete
  23. this song is like riri's attempt at diva by beyonce its cool but nothing like the swag that diva had sorry boo.

    anyways your r&b list was legit! thanks for the memories.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You have to include Mary J Blige and Drake 'The One' that song was the perfect r&b song!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What about Replay by Iyaz??? Great r&b song.

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG you didn't mention Jeremih he had two standout tracks this year :birthday sex and imma star....come on man!
