Does Part of Me count as a lead single? Isn't it just from a re-release of Teenage Dream?

Simple and repetive with a good beat = amazing in the clubs. WFL is much better than OG

I think the video really helped it become a massive hit. It didn't hit #1 on itunes right away like most of lead singles (HIAM, POM BTW etc) but after the video dropped, it was number 1 on itunes for weeks and that Rihanna reign just would not let up :worship:

Why all the songs today must be catchy and for the clubs? All the songs nowadays are made for the clubs. There are not ballads anymore, except Adele which I don't understand why she is not in the list, I totally forgot about her. R&B is dead, too.

The '80 dance music was much better than what we have today, actually the music we had in the '80s was probably the best music eras ever, from Modern Talking, CC Catch, Laura Branigan, Michael Jackson to Phill Collins or Sandra.

Well, Eminem has some good choices :) . Skylar Grey also wrote "I need a Doctor" and she wanted Lady Gaga to sing the chorus, but Eminem refused, so she ended up singing. But it's interesting how Rihanna gets credit for that song, even if the original is way better because of Skylar Grey's voice, but she made a terrible mistake selling the song to Eminem, who chose a more popular diva to sing it :rolleyes: .

You merely need to look at the song credits for Rihanna's songs. Almost non-existent. She has one for "You da One"
, which is a terrible song, and one for "Rude Boy", a song which I really like. Those are the only ones I can remember off the top of my head.

I just looked at the album booklet for GGGB, not a single songwriting credit for Rihanna/Robyn Fenty on any of the 12 songs. :lol:

Katy Perry has written, or at least co-wrote, all of her songs.

If Katy Perry's songs are provocative, then how is "We Found Love" ? No need to talk about the music video. Also, Rihanna is always the star that tries to look more provocative on the stage, always. And Katy Perry writes her own songs.

What did Rihanna achieve? I mean, I'm not a Katy Perry fan, not at all. I don't see she is a better singer, but she writes her own songs, that means she an ability. Neither can sing good live. Well Perry sometimes does, Rihanna just sometimes, when she is not singing "I Love the way you lie", she can't even hit the high notes. I don't think she was the best choice for the song, the songwriter was the best choice, better voice, better live :cool:

Dubstep is not into mainstream pop right now. The inclusion of that random 30 second dubstep snippet more than likely slandered dubstep instead of making it popular. Most of my friends, who are batshit crazy about dubstep and its hype right now, were infuriated.

Dubstep is mainstream on US pop radio. Look at the US top 40 and then get back to me.
What is dubstep in the US top 40 right now? Not seeing what you mean TBH.

Not ONLY right now but post HIAM its like everyone has dubstep in their song. Be it Rihanna, Madonna, Ke$ha, Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj, David Guetta, Martin Solveig etc etc.

It all started with Britney in "Freakshow" on her 2007 album "Blackout" but it really hit mainstream pop in 2011 after HIAM with Billboard saying this,

"Dubstep music has been burgeoning overseas and in patches of the U.S. for years, but the electronic genre emerged into the mainstream in 2011, after Britney Spears added a pinch of dubstep to her single "Hold It Against Me". "

Rihanna, Madonna, Ke$ha have dubstep in their music? :lol:

"Freakshow" is not dubstep. It just samples the characteristic "wobwobwobwob" bass of dubstep, and it ends there. Dubstep became popular because of artists like Skrillex and Example, not because it was included in Britney's HIAM video. And I still see no dubstep songs in US top 40.

"You Da One" has dubstep, "Gang Bang" has dubstep, FloRida feat Nicki Minaj has dubstep,....

Dubstep has been around for a while but its influence on pop/mainstream music is new.

I don't hear anything dubstep-esque in You Da Flop. You're probably referring to that failed and slowed down breakdown before the final chorus in YDO, that's hardly dubstep. Gang Bang has a proper dubstep breakdown I guess.
But dubstep isn't really mainstream pop.

We'll agree to disagree then. Everyone, but you, seems to think Rihanna's song has a dubstep bridge and that dubstep is now being routinely used in mainstream pop music.

Dubstep ELEMENTS are incorporated in some pop songs.

But there is no music that truly and fully fits the characterization of dubstep in mainstream success right now. That's my point and why I disagreed to your 'dubstep is mainstream on US pop radio' statement. But fair enough, let's drop it.

Strangely, I think Run the World, although Beyonce isn't my favourite artist. (I hate We found Love BTW.)

That's because dance music is an influence to dubstep genre, which I am no fan of. The real instruments music is dying, now music is being made on PCs.
