Happy birthday to our favorite Bajan bad gal, Rihanna!

The 30-year-old icon has already achieved so much in her lifetime, and she’s just getting started. Rihanna has continued to push the envelope, and has transcended limits in multiple avenues; music, fashion, philanthropy, makeup, the list goes on.  Aside from her stunning beauty, bold, fashion-forward red carpet looks, and number one hits, Rihanna has also let her creativity shine through her music videos.

The artist has taken countless daring chances with her visuals like “Bitch Better Have My Money,” a cinematic tale alluded to tell the story about her former crooked accountant who left her “effectively bankrupt” in 2009, and “Work,” her summer ’16 hit with Drake, a two-in-one music video. Down below are five times Rihanna made a bold statement in her music videos, leaving  fans speechless and in awe. What is your favorite Rihanna music video?
