Today is Rihanna’s 26th birthday, a milestone that’s praise-worthy enough until you realize just how much the pop diva has accomplished in just 26 years on the planet. Rih Rih doesn’t just have hits—she’s got plenty of them on her own—but she’s also proven to be one of the most prolific and versatile featured artists in the game, lending enormous hooks to songs by Jay Z, Drake, Eminem, Kanye West and a whole bunch more. To celebrate her birthday, XXL has put together a list of Rihanna’s 16 best hip-hop collaborations, from her first foray into the Roc familia with Memphis Bleek in 2005 up through her scene-stealing performance on Eminem’s recent “The Monster.”
