"No Love Allowed"

Rihanna's West Indian background, heretofore absent from the record, finally rears its head. Hearing the N-word and Auto-Tune over an analog roots-reggae backing is rather jarring, but so is the violence-as-love metaphor — another thread that ties the album together, but it's most explicit here. "Like a bullet your love hit me to the core, I was flying 'til you knocked me to the floor," she sings.
