EDITORS’ NOTES

Rihanna was introduced to the world by then Def Jam president JAY Z in 2005, and broke through with a demand on behalf of all the gals on the dance floor: Turn the music up. Since then, the Barbados-born pop innovator has been making us beg for more. Starting with 2007's Good Girl Gone Bad, Rihanna has cleverly played with her image, incorporating BDSM allusions and sexual bravado, and expanding her reggae-tinged dance pop to encompass epic EDM, sultry rock, and undulating hip-hop. Even when she's working with larger-than-life foils—Eminem, Drake—Rihanna's still the one making demands.
