Rihanna sings Te Amo with a strong Caribbean flavor. She's from Barbados after all.

Maybe, because that song matches that Caribbean flavor the choice was for me instead of my.

She has certainly done a lot of work to change her accent into the standard American.


In Wikipedia we read "The use of me instead of my was also attributed to Irish English influence: for example, "That's me book you got there" for "That's my book you got there". An exception occurs when "my" is emphasised: for example, "That's my book you got there" (and nothis)." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scouse

Quoting Wikipedia again "The use of "me" instead of "my", which is common to many British regional accents, has appeared in popular culture"
