Rihanna Needed Me Video


Rihanna’s music video for “Needed Me” premiered on Wednesday. Watch below!

Like several other clips from the singer, the new video is NSFW, with Rihanna wearing a sheer robe that exposes her breasts. But this isn’t just about nudity. Rihanna is depicted as a gun-toting badass who goes to a strip club, where she fires several shots at a male nemesis, who then bleeds out on the floor.

Styled like a short movie, the video was directed by Harmony Korine. The filmmaker is probably best known these days for the bikinis-and-guns flick Spring Breakers, which starred Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and his own wife Rachel. Korine’s long-awaited next film is slated to star Robert Pattinson.

“Needed Me” is the third song from Rihanna’s Anti album to get a music video, following “Work” and “Kiss It Better.” As Gossip Cop reported, the former had the singer getting cozy with Drake, while the latter featured her writhing around in scantily-clad outfits. It was revealed Rihanna would again be baring her body when paparazzi snapped photos of her filming the “Needed Me” clip last month.

Fans can currently see Rihanna perform all three songs on the “Anti World Tour.” After a delayed start, the concert run kicked off last month with Travis Scott as the opening act for the North American dates. This summer, she’ll head to Europe with Big Sean. Just don’t expect there to be lingerie and guns. Check out the “Needed Me” music video below!
