The FADER names Rihanna’s“Sex With Me” the Best Song of 2016

Maybe “Sex With Me” was too backward-looking for ANTI, the album built to reflect Rihanna’s personal growth. Co-written by PARTYNEXTDOOR and only released as a deluxe edition bonus cut, it presents Rihanna as more fantasy than human, just as we’d known her before. But I’m glad it was eventually pushed as a single anyway, because there’s no disputing: sex with Rihanna is amazing, and that she says so is no less revolutionary than Beyoncé’s proclamation that she woke up like that. Women are pure, wet temptation. We do all this hard work, and there’s no vacation from it.

On “Sex With Me,” Rihanna hits an impressive array of flows. The beat holds slow, for partner dancing; it’s as luxuriously pulpy as a spa robe. To be honest, I’ve loved this song, but I wouldn’t have asked it to stand in for the whole year until recently. But now that things have gone hella wrong, may we all remember: pussy made the world go round. And it still does. — NAOMI ZEICHNER
