Loveeeeeee Song Lyrics
I don't wanna give you the wrong impression
I need love and affection
And I hope I'm not sounding too desperate
I need love and affection
Love Love Love
Love and affection
L-o-v-e and affection

He’s letting her know up front he’s damaged, doesn’t want to lead her on or give her the wrong impression, but at the same time he’s vulnerable or not in a state of being committed and he wants to fuck and have those feeling of affection, but it be nothing more. & it’s mutual it seems that way to me anyway.

Idk but it came on when I was fucking this guy I'm really into and he started singing along so I'll take that as a good sign?

In my perspective songs can have dual meanings. One being physical and one being spiritual.
For the physical interpretation, Rihanna has Future singing the hook to this song. He says " I don't want to give you the wrong impression, I need love and affection." Which is simple to understand, he's admitting that he's a human being with emotional needs, despite being a man or a player. If you look at it my way, its like he's enticing the female as well "saying I'm emotional like you too, I won't play you." Rihanna goes into the song saying "Oh baby I'm not asking for the world MAYBE". Basically claiming that she's a simple lover, almost to entice a guy who probably doesn't want to commit to anything serious. Then she slips in the word maybe, which means I might demand a lot from you, once I get you (which isn't limited to stress, drama, or the consequences of a relationship). This whole song physically is in part saying, we're human beings with deep emotional needs and we need love and affection. However, in another part is saying sex=love and affection. Which people normally equate sex with love, especially young people who don't understand the value of making metaphysical connections with other people. However, it makes people feel good, and feel loved, for that temporary moment. Its almost like getting high, its a temporary euphoria, but you do crash afterwards. Unfortunately Rihanna is doing her usual gig, promoting sex and her body as an object. She's giving it the appearance of love and affection, but in truth is saying my love and affection is the only thing I feel I can offer you, which is repressive. Its giving her a weak level of control, or "impressing" young minds to believe sex= love & affection.
The spiritual context of this song can be understood in many ways. As for me, I'd say that we know the physical meaning of Rihanna's song sex= love & affection. She's kind of making a deal. Both Rihanna and Future are selling themselves to one another. They're like pawns in Satan's game of chess. Both think they're getting over on one another. It starts off as a serenade to another. Rihanna says "boy I wanna be in your possession." She wants his spirit to be with/in her, spiritually saying she wants to be possessed by him since he's claiming he can only love her and give her affection. Rihanna is only saying this thinking she can gain something from him controlling her. Like with her record deal; she has obviously allowed something to possess her and lower her moral standards. Future is continuously bargaining throughout the song. Future is playing the devil, and Rihanna is playing this desperate girl. She's ready to allow someone to possess her and overtake her, hoping to gain something from it. While Future is just continuously reassuring her "he needs love and affection too". Towards the end Future seals the deal, saying "will you love me for poor? I'm searching for my soul." Basically saying he's soulless and asking her is she ready to stick around through everything he's going to do.
Yet, that's just my interpretation and its freedom of speech. Hope you enjoyed by view :-)
