You da one Where will this Caribbean beauty go next ? ‘
‘You da one that I dream about all da-ay’ are the lyrics for someone special?
The song was composed in the key of E♭ major using common time and a moderate groove at 126 beats per minute. Instrumentation is provided by the piano. Rihanna's vocal range spans one octave from the low note of B♭3 to the high note of B♭4 on the song. According to Bradley Stern of MTV, the song's musical structure bares resemblances to Britney Spears' "Inside Out’. The singer was also criticized for using to much sexual content in the lyrics of the song and for smoking in the video. ‘You da one’ was compared to ‘what’s ma name’ and ‘Man down’ which also embody the same Caribbean vibes and composition..But despite the criticism ‘you da one’ is still very addictive. Even Rihanna herself said “’you da One' is one of those records that became very addictive for me. I could not stop listening to this song. It's very infectious."
