Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded
pop dance Rihanna rnb female vocalists


"Disturbia" is a song written by Andre Merritt, Chris Brown and Robert Allen for the re-release of Rihanna's third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad, and is the third single from the re-release, following "Take a Bow" and "If I Never See Your Face Again" and the seventh single from the original album. The song was produced by Brian Kennedy with background vocals by Chris Brown and Andre Merritt. Contrary to popular belief, Rihanna uses an Auto-Tune, not a vocoder throughout the song. It was featured in a Circuit City commercial. The song was originally written by Chris Brown and his team known as the Graffiti Artizts and was considered for the re-release of his album Exclusive. However, Brown felt that the song would be better suited for a female singer. He then forwarded the song to Rihanna. Def Jam had considered saving the track for Rihanna's next album in 2009, because she had already recorded "Take a Bow" for the re-release of Good Girl Gone Bad. However, Rihanna and her team felt that the song was a summer single and needed to be recorded and released as soon as possible. The decision was finally made to release the song as the follow up to "Take a Bow". The song follows in the footsteps of Rihanna's "Don't Stop the Music" by being a fast and upbeat pop/dance-rhythmic song. However, in contrast to the upbeat music of "Don't Stop the Music", it is lyrically dark in tone, being about a state of mental anguish, delusional feelings and confusion. In the UK, although not yet released as a single, "Disturbia" debuted on the UK Singles Chart at number forty-seven and was expected to chart higher on the 27th July due to high downloads and the release of the video, but managed to re-enter at #47 again and then climbed to #34. It also debuted at number forty-five in Ireland and then rose to #7 and became its new peak.

Disturbia - Rihanna

[Intro]
Bum bum be dum bum bum be dum dum
Bum bum be dum bum bum be dum dum

What's wrong with me?
Why do I feel like this?
I'm going crazy now

[Verse 1]
No more gas in the rig, can't even get it started
Nothing heard, nothing said, can't even speak about it
On my life, on my head, don't wanna think about it
Feels like I'm going insane, yeah

It's a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind, it can control you
It's too close for comfort

[Pre-Chorus]
Put on your brake lights
You're in the city of wonder
Ain't gonna play nice
Watch out you might just go under

Better think twice
Your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter
Be wise

[Chorus]
Your mind's in disturbia
It's like the darkness is light
Disturbia, am I scaring you tonight?
Disturbia, ain't used to what you like

Disturbia, disturbia

[Verse 2]
Faded pictures on the wall
It's like they talking to me
Disconnecting all the calls
The phone don't even ring

I gotta get out or
Figure this shit out
It's too close for comfort
Oh

[Pre-Chorus]
It's a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind it can control you
I feel like a monster, oh

Put on your pretty lies
You're in the city of wonder
Ain't gonna play nice
Watch out you might just go under

Better think twice
Your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter
Be wise

[Chorus]
Your mind's in disturbia
It's like the darkness is light
Disturbia, am I scaring you tonight?
Disturbia, ain't used to what you like

Disturbia, disturbia, disturbia

[Verse 3]
Release me from this curse I'm in
Trying to stay tame but I'm struggling
If you can't go-o-o
I think I'm gonna ah, ah, ah, ah

[Pre-Chorus]
Put on your brake lights
You're in the city of wonder
Ain't gonna play nice
Watch out you might just go under

Better think twice
Your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter
Be wise

[Chorus]
Disturbia
It's like the darkness is light
Disturbia, am I scaring you tonight?
Disturbia, ain't used to what you like

[Outro]
Disturbia, disturbia
