Rihanna Music and Lyric

There are plenty of factors that have made Barbados-born singer Robyn Rihanna Fenty a star. She's a fine singer whose talent turned the head of producer Evan Rogers, who discovered her while on vacation. She's a stunning beauty, an arresting presence in videos and on magazine covers. And her songs feature enough of a cool Caribbean breeze to make them stand out amid the hot competition of the domestic dance music scene. She's is becoming an enduring presence on the charts because she sounds great the first time you hear her --and, once again -- pon de replay.

Lyrically, Rihanna employs words mostly to service to the slammin' tracks her producers create. "Pon de Replay," the hit from her debut album, "Music of the Sun," is simply a request for "Mr. DJ" to "turn that music up." "S.O.S.," the signature smash from the follow-up, "A Girl Like Me" boasts words about a woman begging for rescue from an unhealthy obsession with a boy, but it's the classic sample from Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" that secured the song's place on the charts. And again, on her Jay-Z featuring hit "Umbrella," it's the track itself that keeps the rain from falling.

Rihanna does have a hand in writing the words to some of her songs, but most often they're written by others. Songs with lyrics about physical attraction, love and nasty breakups dominate her records, although there are some interesting twists. On "Unfaithful," for example, it's the girl who strays and is wracked with guilt -- but not so severely that she'll stop.

Rihanna established her dance-pop credentials in summer 2005 with her debut smash hit, "Pon de Replay," and continued to demonstrate such hit potential in subsequent years (e.g., "S.O.S." in 2006; "Umbrella" in 2007; "Disturbia" in 2008). However, it was the singer's third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, that made her a full-fledged international pop star with a regular presence atop the charts. Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados, she exhibited a certain star quality as a young child, often winning beauty and talent contests. Because she lived on the fairly remote island of Barbados in the West Indies, however, she never foresaw the sort of stardom that would later befall her.

Unfaithful – Lyric

Story of my life, searching for the right

But it keeps avoiding me

Sorrow in my soul? Cause it seems that wrong

Really loves my company


He’s more than a man and this is more than love

The reason that the sky is blue

But clouds are rolling in because I’m gone again

And to him I just can’t be true


And I know that he knows I’m unfaithful

And it kills him inside

To know that I am happy with some other guy

I can see him dying


I don’t wanna do this anymore

I don’t wanna be the reason why

Every time I walk out the door

I see him die a little more inside


I don’t wanna hurt him anymore

I don’t wanna take away his life

I don’t wanna be murderer


I feel it in the air as I’m doing my hair

Preparing for another date

A kiss up on my cheek, he’s here reluctantly

As if I’m gonna be out late


I say I won’t be long just hanging with the girls

A lie I didn’t have to tell

Because we both know where I’m about to go

And we know it very well


Cause I know that he knows I’m unfaithful

And it kills him inside

To know that I am happy with some other guy

I can see him dying


I don’t wanna hurt him anymore

I don’t wanna be the reason why

Every time I walk out the door

I see him die a little more inside


I don’t wanna hurt him anymore

I don’t wanna take away his life

I don’t wanna be murderer


Our love, his trust

I might as well take a gun

And put it to his head

Get it over with

I don’t wanna do this

Anymore, anymore


And I don’t wanna hurt him anymore

I don’t wanna be the reason why

Every time I walk out the door

I see him die a little more inside



And I don’t wanna hurt him anymore

I don’t wanna take away his life

I don’t wanna be amurderer

A murderer, no no no

Yeah
