About Needed Me

"Needed Me" is a song recorded by Barbadian singer and songwriter Rihanna from her eighth studio album, Anti (2016). It was written by Rihanna, Brittany Hazard, Charles Hinshaw and Derrus Rachel together with its producer DJ Mustard and its co-producers Twice as Nice and Frank Dukes. The song was serviced to the urban radio stations on March 30, 2016, as a follow up single from Anti together with "Kiss It Better". Afterwards, Def Jam released "Needed Me" to mainstream radio. "Needed Me" is a "mellow" dubstep-flavored electro-R&B song, that contains a downtempo and loose production with synthetic sounds. The song's lyrics discuss romantic rejection. In the United States, the song peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 becoming Rihanna's 29th top 10 single on the chart, spending sixteen weeks in the top ten and later becoming the singer's longest-charting hit. The song's accompanying music video was directed by film producer Harmony Korine and premiered on April 20, 2016, in celebration of 420. The video is set in Miami and depicts Rihanna with a gun, riding on a motor bike, before attending a strip club where she kills a man. Rihanna performed "Needed Me" during the Anti World Tour. The song received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance at the 59th ceremony.

Mustard on the beat ho!

I was good on my own, that's the way it was
That's the way it was
You was good on the low for a faded f*ck
On some faded love
Shit, what the f*ck you complaining for?
Feeling jaded huh?
Used to trip off that shit I was kickin' to you
Had some fun on the run though, I'll give it to you

But baby
Don't get it twisted
You was just another nigga on the hit list
Tryna fix your inner issues with a bad bitch
Didn't they tell you that I was a savage
F*ck your white horse and a carriage
Bet you never could imagine
Never told you you could have it

You needed me
Ooh
You needed me
To feel a little more, and give a little less
Know you hate to confess
But baby ooh, you needed me

You been rollin' around, shit I'm rollin' up
Light and roll it up
Break it down like a pound, shit was never us
Shit was never us
That's the real on the real, are you serious?
How you feel, how you feel?
Used to trip off that shit I was kickin' to ya
Had some fun on the run though, I'll give it to ya

But baby
Don't get it twisted (don't get it twisted)
You was just another nigga on the hit list
Tryna fix your inner issues with a bad bitch
Didn't they tell you that I was a savage
F*ck your white horse and a carriage
Bet you never could imagine
Never told you you could have it

You needed me
Ooh (ooh)
You needed me (you needed me)
To feel a little more, and give a little less
Know you hate to confess
But baby ooh, you needed me
