Rihanna cranked out another music video. If you even sleep on Rihanna for a minute she’ll have released a new album, three singles and a couple music videos in that time.
Rihanna’s new video for new Talk That Talk single “You Da One” debuted and it is full of bowler hats, blonde wigs, and crotch crabs, 11 to be exact, and no I did not count how many times she grabbed her crotch…I googled it, and found out that Billboard.com already counted for me.
“You Da One” pays homage to Stanley Kubrik’s 1971 film, A Clockwork Orange with Rihanna’s weird eyeliner and pimp stick. Overall, the fashion, the wigs and the dancing is very reminiscent of any 90’s R&B video. The video was very TLC meets early Mariah Carey.
Rihanna also has at least 5 different blonde wigs on in this video. The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas, who also directed “We Found Love” and “S&M” and surprisingly this video is not surrounded by any controversy. Imagine that, Rihanna doing something and not getting in trouble for it being too sexy.
Give it like one week and a farmer in Ireland will find something wrong with it.
Rihanna also just finished her 98th tour date of her LOUD tour a day ago, just in time for her to start up her Talk That Talk tour. Does she ever rest? No, never.
Her first single off the new album “We Found Love” has been sitting at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for 8 weeks. Do you hear that? That’s the sound of Adele having her parade rained on.
