Songfacts®:

  • More come-ons from Rihanna on this uptempo jam, which finds the Bajan singer insisting, with her usual bravado, "I've been a bad girl, Daddy." Some critics have described it as part two to her hit single, "Rude Boy." Later on, Ri displays some rare vulnerability, when she confesses, Take a peek at the girl I hide/ I'll let you in on a dirty secret/ I just wanna be loved."
  • The song was written and produced by Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen of the Australian drum and bass and electronic rock band Pendulum along with frequent Rihanna collaborators, the Norwegian production duo StarGate. Pendulum are one of the most successful bands of their genre and they became the first drum and bass act to record a #1 album in the UK, when Immersion topped the chart in May 2010.
