Rihanna Debuts New Video
Wow, Rihanna sure knows how to look pretty in a music video, doesn’t she? Granted, she also knows how to look not-so-great either, but we’ll just give her this one.
Soon after the release of her single and video for “Only Girl (In The World),” Rihanna shoots back with “What’s My Name?” which features the ever-popular Drake. She also wisely features him in the music video as her love interest.
The whole music video isn’t exactly innovative, but it sure is visually appealing. Rihanna looks perfect, New York City looks beautiful, and Drake looks completely infatuated with Rihanna. Sounds good to me! It may not be the most exciting of music videos, but I don’t think it’s bad, either. Maybe I’m just biased because I like the song a lot.
One thing, though, regarding the lyrics…
When I first heard this song, I thought for sure that the line was “Hey boy, I really wanna see if you can go downtown with a girl like me.” But now, I’m fairly certain it’s “Hey boy, I really wanna see if you can go longtemps with a girl like me,” which makes sense but makes it slightly more annoying to me. Thoughts? Let me know!
