Rihanna Returns New Video “Only Girl (In The World)”

Scope out the premiere of Rihanna's "Only Girl In The World" video. It's directed by her frequent collaborator, director Anthony Mandler.

Watching the video for the first time is like biting into that perfectly ripe piece of fruit that you've been waiting to get your hands on. In this case, I've been waiting for Rihanna's video to premiere for sometime now and let me tell you kiddas it was worth the wait.

The colors explode through the screen as a flame-haired Rihanna dances throughout the video. She seems to do well with heights too (unlike yours truly) swinging from a high spindly tower to strutting out in a mohair sweater and a bustier with a mini floral skirt. Suddenly after, Rihanna is wearing nothing but a white bra and boy shorts as she spins in a red- pastel like field located outside of Los Angeles. When she lies in a bed of flowers as she begins to belt out the enrapturing tune, by this point you get lost in Rihanna's wonderland and truly believe she's thee only girl in the world.

"I'm going to make you swallow your pride," the singer belts. Rihanna was quoted saying, "It’s really, really beautifully shot in these crazy, crazy, crazy places,". She continued, "We shot landscapes that we found a couple hours outside of L.A. It looks so unreal. It looks fake, like something out of a postcard with the beautiful hills… We had a lot of sunshine those couple of days, so it really worked with the whole essence of the video. But really, the video just shows this big landscape and the only person there is me."

Without further ado...
