"Only Girl (In the World)" is a song by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna from her fifth studio album, Loud (2010). The song was released as the album's lead single on September 10, 2010 through Def Jam. It was written by Crystal Johnson, Norwegian production duo Stargate and Sandy Vee, and produced by Stargate and Vee. Musically, "Only Girl" is an up-tempo dance-pop song which incorporates elements of Europop. The song became the first to be completed for the album, and Rihanna chose it for inclusion before she recorded it.

"Only Girl" was well received by music critics, complimenting its beat, as well as the direction of moving away from the darker themes which were present on Rated R (2009). "Only Girl" debuted at number seventy-five on the US Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number one in its eleventh week, giving Rihanna her ninth number one single on the chart. The song reached number one in other countries, including Australia, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Norway and the United Kingdom. It also attained top-five positions in the Czech Republic, France and Germany.

The song's accompanying music video was directed by Anthony Mandler and filmed outside of Los Angeles. The video uses the simplistic theme of predominantly focusing on Rihanna frolicking on a hillside with life size flowers placed near her with an array of artistic sceneries and props. The song was performed for the first time on Saturday Night Live, as well as at 2010 American Music Awards in Los Angeles as part of a medley with "Love the Way You Lie (Part II)" and "What's My Name?". The song won Best Dance Recording at the 53rd Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles on February 13, 2011.

Background composition

"Only Girl" was released as the lead single from Rihanna's fifth studio album, Loud, and premiered on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, on September 7, 2010.[2] During a webchat with her fansite Rihanna Daily, Rihanna stated that she wanted to take the next step in the evolution of herself with regard to "Only Girl" and Loud,[3] and not do a re-make of he`r third album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007).[4] In February 2011, the production team Stargate's Tor Erik Hermansen, who co-wrote and produced the song, spoke of how the concept came about, stating "Rihanna came to us before we started recording this record and said 'I feel great about myself. I want to go back to having fun, I want to make happy and up-tempo records'." Hermansen went on to explain that because Rihanna's previous album, Rated R (2009), had no up-tempo songs, they decided to go into the studio to make what Rihanna had requested of them. "Only Girl" became the first song to be completed for the album, and Rihanna chose it for inclusion on the album prior to having recorded it.[5]

"Only Girl" is an up-tempo dance-pop song that incorporates elements of eurodance in its production.[6][7] The song was written by Crystal Johnson, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen and Sandy Wilhelm. Stargate and Sandy Wilhelm (under his stage name Sandy Vee) produced the song. It features "heavy whipping bass" and the strong use of synths, while the chorus of the song incorporates a "strobing, dance club beat".[7][1] According to sheet music published at Musicnotes.com, the song is written in common time with a moderate tempo of 126 beats per minute. The song is written in the key of F-sharp minor, with Rihanna's vocal range in the spanning from the low note of F3 to the high note of C5.[6] The lyrics of the song feature Rihanna demanding that her lover gives her all the attention that she wants, singing, "Like I'm the only one that you'll ever love / Like I'm the only one who knows your heart / Only girl in the world."[1] Brad Wete, a reviewer for The Music Mix at Entertainment Weekly, described Rihanna's vocals as seductive and reminiscent of a "stronger, sexier version" of her 2007 single, "Don't Stop the Music".[7]

Critical reception

"Only Girl" was well received by music critics. Bill Lamb of About.com gave the song a positive review giving it four and a half out of five stars. Lamb complimented the song for its "towering chorus" and "club ready dance beats". He concluded that "it would be no surprise if this song takes Rihanna back to number one for her second chart topper of the year after 'Rude Boy'".[8] Gerrick D. Kennedy of the Los Angeles Times stated that "Although we can't necessarily say Rihanna is back, since she didn't go anywhere—she is making a comeback of sorts." He continued to say, "After taking a more macabre approach to her fourth disc, Rated R, she's gone in a decidedly more 'sassy, fun, flirty [and] energetic' direction". Kennedy concluded that "With its club ready bassline and Euro-pop influences, not to mention one heck of an epic chorus, the track is a surefire hit."[9] Monica Herrera of Billboard complimented the production of the song, writing that, "[the song] aims squarely for dancefloor domination, as the pop star pours her heart out to one man over a full-throttle production by Norwegian hitmaking duo, Stargate."[10] James Dinh of MTV News praised the lyrics of the song, stating that after having fairly dark and deep lyrics on her previous album, Rihanna has returned to the dance scene with "Only Girl (In the World)". Dinh went on to say, "On the high-energy track, Rihanna yearns for her lover to keep her at the center of his attention over a pulsing electro beat. The singer's voice remains silky on the verses, then bursts out on the song's monstrous chorus."[11] Nick Levine of Digital Spy awarded the song four stars out of five, describing the song as a "crowd-pleasing kinda-comeback single". He also said that even though the song might not be "original", it is probably Rihanna's "purest pop rush since "Don't Stop the Music".[12] BBC's Fraser McAlpine also awarded "Only Girl (In the World)" four stars out of five, stating that "whatever you may think about Rihanna, she is very good at demanding that you listen to what she has to say, even if she has to hurt you in order to do it."[13] At the 53rd Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on February 13, 2011, "Only Girl (In the World) won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.[14]

Music video

Background and synopsis

Rihanna wearing a large white shawl, while standing on a mountain trail, surrounded by large balloons of assorted colors. Critics commented on the video's simplistic approach, as well as its colorful and pleasant imagery.

The music video for "Only Girl" was directed by Anthony Mandler, who directed many of Rihanna's videos, including those for "Take a Bow", "Disturbia", "Rehab" and "Russian Roulette", and premiered online on October 13, 2010.[39] In an interview with Just Jared, Rihanna explained the filming of the video and the video's simplistic theme, "It's really, really beautifully shot in these crazy, crazy, crazy places, We shot landscapes that we found a couple hours outside of L.A. It looks so unreal. It looks fake, like something out of a postcard with the beautiful hills… We had a lot of sunshine those couple of days, so it really worked with the whole essence of the video. But really, the video just shows this big landscape and the only person there is me."[40][41]

The video mimics the carefree lyrics to the song, which suggest that she is the "only girl in the world".[40] The majority of the video features Rihanna prancing around hillsides wearing a mohair sweater and shorter skirt, a bustier and mini floral skirt, and lastly, a white bra and "boy shorts."[39] The video uses the simplistic theme of predominantly focusing on Rihanna frolicking on a hillside with life size flowers placed near her with an array of artistic sceneries and props. Other scenes include Rihanna surrounded by multi-colored balloons, riding on a swing that hangs from the sky, lying in a bed of flowers and then dancing in front of a tree covered with blinking lights that adds to the surreal imagery.[42]

Reception

Tanner Stransky of Entertainment Weekly reviewed the video positively, commenting on the video's simplistic theme, noting it makes it seem "as if Rihanna is speaking directly to you, the viewer, and she is your one and only amid swallowing rolling, beautiful, swallowing landscapes. It's an effect that makes you focus squarely on RiRi, who's ensconsced in flirty outfits and sporting that fire-red 'do she wore to the VMAs last month."[40] Joyce Lee of CBS wrote, "Rihanna has officially moved on from her edgy Rated R days and has taken on a more girly and upbeat look with her new music video, 'Only Girl (In the World).'"[43] Brittany Talarico of OK! complimented the transition from Rihanna's previous effort, Rated R, which featured darker themes and lyrics, stating, "Goodbye spikes and leather, hello bows and flowers! Rihanna looks like an ephemeral beauty in her latest musical for her upbeat hit 'Only Girl (In the World).' She has traded in her dominatrix, spikey look for a softer side — and lets her fiery red hair down!".[44] A reviewer of Mail Online also complimented the colorful video, calling it "beautifully shot". The reviewer went on to say that, "Her clothing is floral and feminine and her flame red hair has been tousled and has a huge bow in it [...] The tone is completely different to the hard edged, heavier image and sound she produced on her last record which came in the wake of the highly publicised attack at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown."[45] Seth Sommerfield of Spin also noted Rihanna's image change from her previous album's video's, stating that it is "far from the overtly sexual edge she flaunted on Rated R" and called it "whimsical [and] beautiful".[46] At the MuchMusic Video Awards held in Canada on June 19, 2011, the song was nominated for "MuchMusic.com Most Watched Video of the Year", but lost to Taio Cruz's "Dynamite".[47]

Live performances

"Only Girl" was performed for the first time in North America on Saturday Night Live on October 30, 2010, where Rihanna also debuted "What's My Name?" (without Drake). Rihanna was also featured in a skit performance on the show.[48][49] The following day in the United Kingdom, Rihanna sang the song on series seven of The X Factor.[50] The performance featured Rihanna at a masquerade ball, which involved the dancers engage in an on-stage cake fight.[51] Elsewhere in Europe, Rihanna performed the song at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2010 in Madrid, Spain, on November 7, 2010, where she was surrounded by flowers on a set which resembled that of a fairy tale.[52] Additionally, the song was performed on The X Factor in Italy on November 9, 2010, which featured Rihanna wearing a red pig-tail wig and a flowered bikini,[53] as well as performing on Le Grand Journal in France on November 10, 2010.[54] On November 11, 2010, a pre-recorded taping of The Graham Norton Show in the United Kindgom aired, featuring an interview with Rihanna, along with a performance of the song.[55]

Rihanna performed a medley of the song together with "Love the Way You Lie (Part II)" and "What's My Name?" at the American Music Awards of 2010 on November 21, 2010.[56] Rihanna opened the performance singing an acappella version of "Love The Way You Lie Part II". She sat on a stylized tree hovering above a field of sable-colored blades of grass. Once she had finished the first frame of the song, she intentionally fell off of the tree and plummeted to the ground. She re-emerged from the fog revealing a changed costume now consisting of a black-and-white bra top and shorts and sang "What's My Name?".[56] The performance featured an accompaniment of background dancers. Rihanna then ended the performance after transitioning into "Only Girl", which featured drummers and a background of fire for the finale.[56][57]

On February 15, 2011 it was performed at the 2011 Brit Awards as a part of medley together with "S&M" and "What's My Name?".[58][59] The singer was supposed to perform the full version of "S&M", for promoting the song's release as a single, however she was informed to "tone down" her performance by the show's bosses, thus performing only one verse and chorus in between "Only Girl" and "What's My Name?". This was due to the BRIT Awards corporation trying to avoid receiving similar complaints about Rihanna on the final of the seventh season of The X Factor on December 11, 2010, for wearing a provocative outfit and performing a suggestive dance routine before the watershed.[60][61][62] "Only Girl" was included on the Australian leg of the Last Girl on Earth Tour in February and March 2011,[63] and is also showcased as the opening song on the current Loud Tour.[64]
