Do Ya Thang

Album: Talk That Talk (Deluxe Edition) (2011)
  • This uplifting Pop number finds Rihanna telling a guy that she's okay with him checking out other ladies. The song is one of three on the Deluxe Edition of Talk That Talk to be co-produced by Terius "The-Dream" Nash, who is best known for co-writing her hit tune, "Umbrella." The-Dream told The Boombox that he "was more called in to fill in the blanks," on the album. He went on to explain that songwriter Ester Dean, who contributed to eight tracks on the record, "is locked in to what Rihanna's doing at this particular moment," and he's "at a place where you can call me in as a songwriter, but Ri calls me in as a friend that's going to make an unbiased decision, not just because I'm trying to get on the record."
