Oh na na, what's my name?

What's my name, what's my name?

I heard you good with them soft lips
Yeah, you know word of...

    In my opinion .. I think Rihanna likes Drake but he is a bit of a player and she might feel as though he would use her and wouldn't even ask her name, hence(What's my name) .. She wants him to get to know her a bit before they basically have sex. She knows he's good in bed, and has heard about him - knows he has a talent(Lets explore your talent). But Rihanna know's his type, but falls for those type's all the time but wants this time to be different, she's feisty and different to other girls she is flirting but not giving to much away making Drake want to know more... They then start to enter a relationship and she trusts him and is starting to fall in love with him, letting him in. She then proves she can change a man when they are in love and he didn't use her and just want her for sex, he stuck around long enough to find out her name,unlike other men, and she's crazy about him now.

    I'm pretty sure it means they're having sex in the car. She's saying "what's my name" because she wants him to scream it as they orgasm.

    I think Rihanna’s nana (grandmother) has Alzheimer’s and has forgotten riri’s name and riri is asking nana “oh nana , what’s my name?”

    She's looking for a whole round relationship. A relationship that keeps her entertained beyond sex.

    In this song she is asking the devil what her name is in the group. Just like Beyonce is sasha fierce

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Rihanna your such a beautiful girl, it's a shame you sold your soul to the devil. Money and fame isn't everything gal.

    Rihhana has forgotten her ex name when she joined the illuminati, this has nothing to to wit sex, remember theres an hidden message in many musics mostly the illuminati music in an effort to trap u in a foolish way. Shes asking the pyramid they worship whats her name, her real birth name, shes rihanna nd popular wen she joined the new order group and forgot her ex life. In some other meanings it may sound to u as a sex music, hey boy i realy wana see if u can go downtown wit a gal lyk me.....

    i think all of yu are blind this has nothing to do with drake
    she is known as the ultimate illuminati puppet for a reason.
    this song describes how much torture she undergoes during illuminati rituals
    it hurts but she still wants it
    all for the fame baby
    'whats my name' comes in because she is dissoriented and cant remember her old self.
    oh nah nah wats my name
    nah also refers to 'rah'
    the three horned devil that they worship.
    she is also askin him to define who she is
    he had total power over her

    It's apparent of the meaning.
    Rihanna wants someone who will keep her entertained.

    Now, Drake is truly impressive with his use of parallelism and use of puns.
    It's a very sexual connotation and yet it is amazingly witty.

    i think this song means that he's gonna pleasure her enough that she will forget her name. A simple figure of speech

    I think that the song is about Rihanna and Drake having sex.

    In the first part, Drake says:
    But I know you wanna stay
    You're just waiting on the traffic jam to finish, girl
    The things we could do in twenty minutes girl
    Say my name, say my name
    Wear it out, it's getting hot, crack a window, air it out
    I can get you through a mighty long day
    Soon as I go the text you gonna right is gonna say...

    It means they're having sex in the car.

    In Rihanna's part, it says:
    Not everybody knows how to work my body
    Knows how to make me want it
    Boy, you stay up on it
    You got that something that keeps me so off balance
    Baby, you're a challenge, let's explore your talent

    It means he wants Drake.

    But even though the song is about sex at first, it becomes more than sex as Drake takes the time to figure her out.

    Rhianna is finally coming out that she has amnesia... She thinks drake is Chris brown and wants to make sure the "rude boy" still knows "what's my name"
