Riff: Rihanna – “Nobody’s Business”

Nov 19, 2012

Every touch becomes infectious/Let’s make out in this lexus/There’s no other love just like this

from Nobody's Business lyrics by Rihanna

A massive act of defiance, Rihanna joins forces with the man who savagely beat her just three years ago to croon about how their perfect love shouldn’t be of concern to anyone else. A divisive sentiment, but whatever you think of Team Breezy, it’s hard to deny its Janet/Luther-esque house-pop charm.
