EDITORS’ NOTES

Rihanna relishes taboos, and she's happiest when danger’s afoot, like on the aptly titled “S&M” or the nakedly seductive “Skin.” But for every song of brazen sexuality, there’s a vulnerable counterpart. “California King Bed,” “Complicated,” and the two versions of “Love the Way You Lie” remind us that it’s this superstar’s humanity that makes her so compelling.
