Rihanna went swimming with sharks for a photo spread featured in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Check out the wild video below!

The singer is well-known for risqué shoots that feature her scantily-clad, or even nude. But this new project has to be the riskiest of all. With the help of skilled divers and the encouragement of photographer Norman Jean Roy, a diver himself, Rihanna swam underwater alongside a shark. The finished pictures are stunning, and Rihanna shared the one seen above on Twitter and Instagram as a sneak peek teaser. She also posted another picture, showing her on dry land and wearing a gorgeous gold jumpsuit. See below.

“Photographer NORMAN JEAN ROY shot my Cover and underwater cover story! Stay tuned!! @harpersbazaarus,” tweeted Rihanna. She also shared a behind-the-scenes video of the process, writing, “Check what happens when a badgal and fashion photographer/certified diver Norman Jean Roy get together!” Rihanna added in another tweet, “Then this happened …. #bucketlistsh*t Thank you @harpersbazaarus for such a thrilling shoot!!”

The full pictorial is featured in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands later this month. A rep from the magazine confirms to Gossip Cop that additional photo previews and excerpts from Rihanna’s interview will be released on Wednesday. Check out the below pics, which Harper’s Bazaar retweeted on Twitter, as well as video from the shoot.
