NEW GROOVES: Rihanna’s “We Found Love” Video
Rihanna’s long awaited video to the first single of her upcoming album “Talk that Talk” premiered October 18th. The “We Found Love” video stars British boxer/model Dudley O’ Shaughnessy who, in the video, has a strong resemblance to her infamous ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. The video starts off with Rihanna stating, “”It’s like you’re screaming but no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone could that be that important, that without them you feel like nothing. No one will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel hopeless like nothing can save you. And when it’s over and it’s gone, you almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back so you could have the good.”
The video continues to show a couple that is engulfed in an addictive love that brings fulfillment and destruction at the same time. While watching the video, I was curious to see if all the visuals and introduction was a subliminal message regarding Rihanna’s feelings toward her past relationship with the R&B superstar. Although it is impossible to not raise this question, there is no denying the quality and intriguing nature of this video. Watch Rihanna’s “We Found Love” video below and look out for her new album, “Talk the Talk”, set for release on November 21st.
