No to Fire Bomb being the lead single. I think Russian Roulette was the perfect comeback single considering what happened to her prior to it. It's darker and way more haunting than Fire Bomb imo, and I think Fire Bomb would've flopped even harder. Watch N Learn would've flopped too, and I don't think LOTB would've made a good lead single. It came out at the right time, and Work was already massive. Nothing on Anti would've caught the attention that Work did. I do think the Anti era could've been so much more though. With 4 singles and 3 music videos it was her smallest era in years, probably since the mixtapes. There was so much juice left in it. So many wasted opportunities. LOTB could have become a classic for her with more promo and a music video, and Anti could've done with another single or two. Maybe even a dual release with Consideration and Desperado. Jump definitely should've been released too, especially considering it smashed out of nowhere in Australia.

Fire Bomb - would maybe reach top 10

Hard - same as above

Russian Roulette - would maybe be top 20

Rude Boy - #1

.. etc etc.. after that it didn't matter 

 

LOUD

Only Girl (in the World)

Whats my name

S&M

Cheers - probably would have been the 4th #1 from Loud or at least top 3

Man Down

Complicated or Fading - flop

 

Talk that Talk

 

We Found Love

Watch N Learn

Talk that Talk

Drunk on Love

Birthday Cake remix

Where have you been - this needed to be a single after WFL, it would have been even bigger 

 

Unapologetic 

Diamonds

Stay

Jump - agree with this one, even tho PIU is that

No Love Allowed - Love this song, but no

 

etc etc.

 

Anti

Love on the brain.. - This song was a good 4th single, it would have reached #1 with a video, it will become a Rihanna classic if she continues to perform it on tours

(went top 5, without a video, just imagine if it were a lead, and got a video treatment)

Work

 

Kiss it Better 

 

Needed Me

 

Consideration.. - Desperado or SWM would have been better choices, even tho this is a great song

Needed Me would have been a 10 week leader if it had been released first. Work would have still been a leader so i think she would have like 15 leaders by now
