Rihanna - Where Have You Been

[Rihanna]
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for someone
Someone who can please me
Love me all night long
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for you babe
Looking for you babe
Searching for you babe

Where have you been
Cause I never see you out
Are you hiding from me, yeah?
Somewhere in the crowd

[Hook]
Where have you been,
All my life, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life

[Beat Break]

[Rihanna]
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for someone
Someone who can please me
Love me all night long
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for you babe
Looking for you babe

Searching for you babe

Where have you been
Cause I never see you out
Are you hiding from me, yeah?
Somewhere in the crowd

[Hook]
Where have you been,
All my life, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life

[Beat Break]

Where have you been, all my life

[Bridge]
You can have me all you want
Any way, any day
To show me where you are tonight

[Outro]
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for someone
Someone who can please me
Love me all night long
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for you babe
Looking for you babe
Searching for you babe

In “Where Have You Been”, Rihanna desperately wonders where her lover has been before they met. In fact, she repeats the phrase “where have you been” 14 times in the song, so you know she definitely hoped for a lover to show up. The song’s gritty electro-pop sound is mainly given by Calvin Harris, who produced another hit on this album: “We Found Love.” Cirkut and Dr. Luke also have production credits. In the US, the song reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Rihanna her second top ten from the album after “We Found Love”, another track produced by Calvin Harris. The Where Have You Been Songfacts says that the song borrows elements from Australian songwriter Geoff Mack 's 1959 composition "I've Been Everywhere," which three years later became a Country hit for Hank Snow with revised Americanised lyrics.
