Riff: Alicia Keys – “Limitedless”

Nov 26, 2012

Murder murder, I took the red pill/My heart it goes boom every time that we feel

from Limitedless lyrics by Alicia Keys

The ghost of Diana King’s “Shy Guy” hovers over this jittery dancehall number, far less contrived than any of Rihanna’s recent nods to her Caribbean roots, although grammar fanatics will be appalled at the needless extension of the word ‘limitless’ to describe her undying devotion.
