Rihanna's 10 Best Hip-Hop Collaborations

8. Rihanna f/ Jay-Z "Talk That Talk" (2011)

Album: Talk That Talk
Producer: StarGate

By this point in their respective careers, Rihanna and Jay-Z could sleepwalk through crafting a smash, and it seems like that's what happened on the title track to her 2011 album. The song isn't overwrought and doesn't contain too many embellishments. It's simply a precise communication of ideas—Jay-Z's pointed verses, Ri's succinct chorus—by a couple of professionals. This was textbook hit-making and further proved that "ain't nobody fucking with the clique."
