Riff: Rihanna – “Half Of Me”

Nov 19, 2012

I guess the kind of songs that I been singing/Make it seem as if I was winning

from Half Of Me lyrics by Rihanna

Co-written by Adele and Emeli Sande, this classy dub-pop bonus track doesn’t come close to the highs of their respective chart-toppers. But it at least allows Rihanna to display a rare vulnerability as she insists that the confident ball-busting pop star you see on TV is only one side of the story.
