Rihanna drops the official music for her brand new single, “We Found Love,” the first off her forthcoming sixth album, Talk That Talk, due next month.
The young pop star gets high on love in the powerful visual about an intense relationship with a man, played by boxer-model Dudley O’Shaughnessy.
The Melina-directed clip begins with a dialog explaining how deep a relationship can be, so much so, it hurts, all while memories of young love flashes on the screen. The video features footage Rihanna and her boyfriend having fun — Shooting fireworks late at night, hitting a skatepark, frolicking in a wheat field, a late night fast food run, and even pill use.
The couple’s intense love eventually reaches a breaking point, and there’s an intense fight that ends thigns.
“We’ve never done a video like this before. This is probably one of the deepest videos I’ve ever done,” Rihanna explained of the video. “It’s all about love and love being like a drug, you definitely get that from this.”
Talk That Talk drops November 21.
