Though the official music video has not been released, this arty clip which debuted today is the official tour edition video.
The video sees Rihanna give a nod to the China theme, donning a black gown with chop sticks in her newly dyed black hair.
Rihanna’s bit on our record is my favorite bit. When the song came out, it sort of asked for her to be on it. And I think at this point, we have nothing to lose, and so we’ve been trying some new things and trying to break down the perceived boundaries between different types of music.
In related music news, Rihanna and Jay-Z will be the two headline acts in the popular music lineup for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The pair will star in the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend 2012 (June 23-24) a month before the Games, said organizers of the Olympics cultural festival.
