Don’t worry Diplo, yours is not a initial (or last) strain to be upheld on by Rihanna. Over a past few years, an whole list of Rihanna rejects have been breathed new life and done their approach into a tip 100. For those meddlesome in personification a diversion of “What if?!”, here are nine massive strike songs that could have been sung by Rihanna.

Sheeren told BBC Radio 1 that he wrote his strike singular with Rihanna in mind. “But afterwards we was singing some of a lyrics and was like Rihanna is not going to sing these difference so kept it to myself,” he laughed.

Sia wrote “Diamonds” for Rihanna, and suspicion she competence have another No. 1 for a thespian when she wrote “Cheap Thrills.” Rihanna upheld on a track, and Sia loved it so most she motionless to record it her self. “For some reason, we unequivocally favourite listening to it that creates me feel masturbatory,”Sia told Rolling Stone. “I wouldn’t routinely be usually jamming out to my possess tunes.”

Producer Jeff Bhasker suggested to Complex that Drake’s “Find Your Love” was co-written with Kanye West, and that Rihanna available a strange demo of a song. When she forsaken it from her 2009 Rated R album, Drake picked it adult and incited it into an RB smash.

In a NY Times form on Sia, a luminary songwriter herself suggested that “Pretty Hurts” was offering to both Rihanna and Katy Perry before it finished adult as a opening lane on Beyoncé’s warn self-titled album.

Max Martin (who FYI wrote “…Baby One More Time” and “Backstreet’s Back”) was one of a songsmiths invited to representation songs for Rihanna’s 2010 album, Loud. “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” wasn’t one of a 200 prospected songs to make a final cut, though it did flattering good in Usher’s hands.

Producer Mike Will Made-It is credited for Rihanna’s 2013 strike “Pour It Up” — but it’s not a strain he had designed for her. “The thought [of ‘We Can’t Stop’] was some-more towards Rihanna. And afterwards Rihanna, she listened ‘Pour It Up,’ and afterwards she got on ‘Pour It Up’ right away. And she didn’t even hear ‘We Can’t Stop.’ So afterwards we finished adult a record,” Mike told MTV News.

Alex Pall told Rolling Stone it was fine Rihanna deserted their demo, “because immature different artists have this craving – they’re peaceful to work unequivocally hard.” They recorded the lane with up-and-comer Daya, and it went to No 3.

The strain was shopped around to a Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera before the writers were told it being deliberate as a duet for Rihanna and Chris Brown. Later that day, it became violation news that Brown had physically assaulted Rihanna.

“Timber” has always been Pitbull’s song, though that catchy hook by Ke$ha was originally going to be sung by Rihanna. According to Pitbull, Ri upheld on a strain to record “Can’t Remember to Forget You” with Shakira. She might have missed out on another No. 1, though we wouldn’t trade anything for that erotic Shakira x Rihanna strain video.
