Kiss It Better - Rihanna



The Experience: What are you willing to do... They urge you to keep going, to push the limits. But if it's just because they want to keep taking more, why keep going?



Music video: Rihanna, wearing a see-through slip, slowly strips down to topless. The video jives with the lyrics' focus on sex - Rihanna showcasing her body - and that contributes more to objectifying the female body than to deepening the song's story.

The Meaning of Kiss It Better: Rihanna urges her boy to go further and further - kiss it better and what are you willing to do. She wants him to take her back after a breakup, and her only selling point is sex.

Ask yourself: Is there more to your relationship than sex?

Album: ANTI

LYRICS:

Kiss it, kiss it better, baby
Kiss it, kiss it better, baby

Been waiting on that sunshine
Boy, I think I need that back
Can't do it like that
No one else gon' get it like that
So why argue? You yell, but you take me back
Who cares when it feels like crack?
Boy you know that you always do it right
Man, f-ck your pride, just take it on back, boy
Take it on back boy, take it back all night
Just take it on back, take it on back
Mmm, do what you gotta do, keep me up all night
Hurting vibe, man, and it hurts inside when I look you in your eye

What are you willing to do?
Oh, tell me what you're willing to do?
Kiss it, kiss it better, baby
Oh, what are you willing to do?
Oh, tell me what you're willing to do?
Kiss it, kiss it better, baby

Been waiting on that sunshine
Boy, I think I need that back
Can't do it like that
No one else gonna get it like that
So why argue? You yell, had to take me back
Who cares when it feels like crack?
Boy, you know that you always do it right
Man, f-ck your pride, just take it on back, boy
Take it on back boy, take it back all night
Just take it on back, take it on back
Mmm, do what you gotta do, keep me up all night
Hurting vibe, man, and it hurts inside when I look you in your eye

What are you willing to do?
