Bad girl Riri is back and she is out for revenge. Or at least, she appears to be murderous and vengeful in the new music video for “Needed Me.” Check out the Rihanna Needed Me video below.
According to Billboard, the new video might just be the embodiment of Not Safe for Work. The Barbados hit maker is shown rolling up to a strip club. She then shoots his leading man. She does all these while wearing a baby blue dress that is so sheer it leaves little to the imagination. Hollywood Life also pointed out that the “Work” singer was not wearing a bra underneath the dress. It was not all strip club and cold-blooded killings, though. The video also featured money, guns, and a beautiful waterfront backdrop.
The whole look and feel of the Rihanna Needed Me video is not really surprising. The video was directed by “Spring Breakers” director Harmony Korine, after all.
Meanwhile, the “Kiss It Better” singer recently made US charts history. In another report, Billboard pointed out that the singer’s hit track “Work” broke the record for the second most total weeks spent at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. “Work” is a song Rihanna did in collaboration with rapper Drake. Both “Work” and “Needed Me” are tracks off her new record, “ANTI.”
With “Work,” Rihanna has now spent a total of 60 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart. This record was previously held by the iconic band, The Beatles. Mariah Carey still holds the top spot though at 79 weeks.
Topping charts and dropping killer videos are not the only things keeping the hitmaker busy right now. According to Hollywood Life, Rihanna recently surprised fans at Coachella. She was Calvin Harris’ surprise guest performer one weekend. Check out Riri’s bad side in the Rihanna “Needed Me” video below.
