"Half of Me" is a song recorded by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna for her seventh studio album Unapologetic (2012). It was written by Emeli Sandé, Naughty Boy and Stargate, with production done by the latter two. It is chamber pop which can be interpreted as an ironic "personal essay" rather than simply a song. Rihanna delivery of the track features firm yet steady vocals in an "experimental" fashion, as she sings about not being sorry for how lets people into her life. She references Oprah Winfrey in the line "You saw me on the television", possibly alluding to her relationship with Chris Brown and his assault on Rihanna. The song garnered positive reviews from music critics, some of whom felt that it is "heartfelt" and "psychedelic". Upon the release of Unapologetic, the song charted in Canada, France, Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. It debuted at number 10 on the UK R&B Chart.

LyricsEdit

You saw me on a television
Setting fire to all the buildings
Yeah I guess you saw me stealing
But you've no idea what I've been needing

Talk about when we were children
Not the kinda kid that you believe in
You saw me on a television
Saw me on a television

But that's just the half of it
Yeah you saw the half of it
This is the life I live
And that's just the half of it

You saw me on a television
Hanging on my dirty linen
You're entitled to your own opinion
Sit you shake your head at my decision

I guess the kinda songs that I been singing
Make it seem as if I'm always winning
But you saw me on a television
Yeah you saw on a television

But that's just the half of it
You saw the half of it, yeah
This is the life I live
And that's just the half of it

Oh you know me, I'm the life of the party
Beautiful people surround me
Everybody falling in love
Oh you know me, everybody knows that I'm crazy
Sticks and stones, they never break me
And I'm the type that don't give a fuck

And that's just the half of it
You saw the half of it
Yeah this the life I live
And that's just the half of it

Yeah you saw the half of it
And this is the life I live
You saw the half of it
Only the half of it, hey, no...

You saw me on a television
Saw me on a television
