"What Now"

The closer in the album's dub-step trilogy is by far the most interesting, starting as a piano-drive pop confessional before switching to the familiar monster drums and synth bass. Though Rihanna doesn't have a single writing or production credit on the album, this is where things start to get refreshingly personal, and the Chris Brown subtext that follows Rihanna everywhere gets difficult to ignore. "I found the one he changed my life, but was it me that changed," she wails, in one of the album's best vocal takes.
