Straying true to Ri‘s minimalist approach this year, the colorful Emil Nava-directed clip follows our Navy Queen as she twirls and gives fierce face to the the camera amid laser light-heavy backdrops that perfectly match the euphoric feel of the track, which jumps to #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
In another scene, Calvin stands creepily behind Ri while she dances it out. You know, as collaborators do.
What happens next? Well, like the rest of the visual’s from Ri‘s ANTI era, not a whole lot. It feels like something should happen — but nothing ever does. Sometimes all a video actually needs is Rihanna being Rihanna. Twirl on and keep making those sweet, sweet sounds, mama.
