The track is inspired from the ‘50s and ‘60s. You can notice the absolutely amazing voice of the artist, due to the variety of notes Rihanna sings, from low to very high.
The meaning of the song can be easily seen and understood. She is singing about a relationship that doesn’t seem to be a healthy one. She actually got us to feel the violence and also the toxic love she has been through.
In the first verse the lyric
And I tried to buy your pretty heart, but the price too high
can suggest that she really wanted his love but on the other hand for that thing to happen she had to sacrifice too much.
The toxic relationship and the possibility of violence is expressed in the lyrics:
You love when I fall apart
So you can put me together
And throw me against the wall
it might not be a physically violence, it also could be an emotionally overcontrol that his lover has over her.
On the second verse, the lyric
I’m tired of being played like a violin
is somehow telling that she was used by her lover, and what she was feeling. After that, she asks what she has to do to get his heart. It is obviously that she got tired of the relationship, but she is still hanging on and looking for answers to get his love.
