Rihanna’s ‘Cheers (Drink To That)’ Video Debuts

August 26th, 2011 // Leave a Comment

Rihanna’s new video, “Cheers (Drink to That),” officially premiered on thirsty last night, and in celebration of her latest visual feat, the boisterous Barbadian announced its arrival, tweeting, “It’s here #CHEERS to you #RihannaNavy!!!”

The visual most certainly lives up to the song’s hype. It begins with a clip of starstruck revelers chanting Rihanna’s name over and over again, followed by over four minutes of enviable footage of the star’s charmed life, from the stage, to backstage, to the bar, to island getaways, to social fetes around the world, and finally, back to that stage, this time shared with rap titans Jay-Z and Kanye West (also known as The Throne, but that’s another story).

Cee Lo Green and Avril Lavigne, whose vocals tint the song’s chorus, make a cameo in the video, as well.

The singer, with a possible sex tape, ends the video by flashing two obligatory middle fingers to her audience, a feat only she could—and is expected to—get away with. Watch the video
