About this song

The song features siren noises and violent lyrics about shooting a man, however Rihanna told Spin magazine they shouldn't be taken literally. "The song is about breaking a man's heart," she explained. "It's a very cleverly written song and what I love about it is that it's not a lyric you'd normally hear a female singing." (Man Down Songfacts).
