Hot Video Alert: Rihanna - Only Girl (In The World)
Wow. Guess I missed the boat THIS one too. I did show you all the teaser for Rihanna's "Only Girl (In The World)" video earlier this month but that was it. Well here it is. It's a party in the desert (or on Mars...not sure) and not a trashy Ke$ha desert party. This is a classy desert party, complete with flowers, balloons, fireworks, swings, trampolines, weird dress-lights hanging from trees. Sounds like a party I definitely want to at, especially if this song is playing. This song is VERY dance move-worthy. If I were a fist pumping guy, I would definitely start fist pumping when this songs comes on. LOVE. The video, which features Rihanna and NO ONE else was directed by Anthony Mandler.
"Only Girl (In The World)" was produced by Stargate and Sandy Vee and is out now on iTunes in the U.S. The track peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has yet to chart in the UK, despite being released on October 25th. I'm a little bit surprised, actually, that the song didn't do better in Britain.(OK so I'm an idiot. It's Sunday and the UK charts had yet to be released. The song debuted at #2 on the charts. That's more like it!)."Only Girl (In The World)" went #1 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, New Zealand, and Norway. Club remixes come to us from Bimbo Jones, Rosabel, Mixin Mark & Tony Svejda and CCW, leading to a #9 peak on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. The second single released from her forthcoming fifth studio album, Loud (November 10), has been announced as "What's My Name," featuring Canadian rapper Drake. The single impacted U.S. radio on October 26th and is officially available to download in Australia. It'll be out for download in the States on November 1st. In the meantime, check out my buddy The Prophet's blog to see Ri Ri perform her two singles last night on Saturday Night Live. Just a warning...the performances are a bit rough.
