Riff: Rihanna – “Lost In Paradise”

Nov 19, 2012

How was I to know my love was delusional/Somebody told me how to mend a broken heart this old

from Lost In Paradise lyrics by Rihanna

Echoing the playful 8-bit dubstep of its writer Labrinth’s speaker-blasting hit, “Earthquake,” the closing number neatly sums up the broken-hearted mixed messages that dominates the second half of Unapologetic with Rihanna seemingly acknowledging the fact that she finds comfort in feeling lost.
