Rihanna Changes Pace with ‘Hard’ Video

Rihanna

Rihanna is breaking from tradition and going with a different director for her “Hard” video.

The Rated R singer will shoot a video this week for the Tricky Stewart and Dream production with director Melina Matsoukas, reports Just Jared. This will be her first time working with Melina, who has directed clips for Beyoncé, Ciara, and Whitney Houston. RiRi has remained loyal to director Anthony Mandler, who helmed twelve of her music videos, including her latest “Russian Roulette.”

Rihanna is preparing for a busy week ahead. After she finishes shooting in Los Angeles, she will perform a show for her MySpace fans on Thursday at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom followed by “SNL” on Saturday.

    This is news? You seem like you’re reaching. I thought I was going to see actual concepts, maybe photos or video snippets. You should wait until you have something before you decide to make a blog post.

    This song isn’t so bad, Jeezy was a goot look too. I just wish this girl had some rhythm, she could jam so hard to this record if she could just move to the music a tiny bit.

    @BiBi Bish please people other than Beyonce us Melina honey..Beyonce wasnt the first person to use Melina.

    I Hope she does some dancing in this video because teh song goes hard and I can see some cute dance steps for this song lol..

    @VaunTV, Bish if anything what Rihanna needs to be getting off Beyonce is some dancing and sanging skills.

    Don’t get upset with me that your girl is a FLOP. She has a 100th of promotion, 99cent album and she still is FLOPPING!!!!

    Melina is gonna go in for this video i like how she directs. If only there was choreography for the video it would be crazy but u kno rihanna is just gonna be rockin back and forth saying ” Im So Hard, Yea yea yea im so Hard” lol! Choreography would make the video 10 times better but she just stays in her comfort zone. She should just shut down all the haters with a crazy choreographed video then people would really be like Ok this chick is being serious

    @ruby, if you read my comment correctly then u would know i said “IF” there was choreography. if she had a good dance routine and could actually dance the video could be something crazy and she could shut the haters down that have said she couldnt but we know in actuality that it wont happen.

    sorry honey. the director doesn’t make the video, the artist does. rihanna stiff arse still won’t put in what’s necessary to create a masterpiece like beyonce and ciara can.

    [Reply]

    will Reply:

    @d, actually the director has most to do with if the video is hot or not. The way the video is shot, camera angles, etc. U can make a hot video without good choreography. Take Rihannas Umbrella and disturbia videos for instance. Those 2 videos took Rihannas career to a whole other level u cant say those videos werent good!

    FINALLY!!!!! Anthony Mandler is a horrible director. With the exception of Disturbia and Irreplaceable, his videos are not good. His videos are all style and no substance and they usually look the same. I’m s glad she finally left this boring director. She needs to work with new, fresh directors. Joseph Kahn, Ray Kay, Francis Lawrence, Jonas Akerlund, etc… Melina is a good start. Rihanna’s best,most memorable videos are those she did with other directors like Umbrella and SOS.

    [Reply]

    will Reply:

    @james, i agree, Anthony Mandlers videos arent that good, they all lack something. The Amerie Heard Em All video was a huge disapointment. What ever happened to Dave Meyers, one of the best music video directors ever. His videos were so creative and clear. He directed the first ever 3D music video (Missy Elliott- Ching a Ling) and all of missys hottest videos, as well as 90% of artists videos from 2001-2006. I think if Dave Meyers and Lady Gaga worked together it would probobly be one of her best videos cause they both have crazy ideas and imagination. Francis Lawrence is also one of the best high budget music video directors but many artists today cannot afford his videos lol. Rihannas needs to be on that Lady Gaga video budget and start making epic, expensive videos if she wants to keep up cause Lady Gaga is just on a whole other level from any artist out in this decade!

    I agree. The album is so mediocre its sad that she spent what 3 months on this and it sounds so rushed. At least when Beyonce rushed B’Day it had some hot uptempos(Get Em’Bodied) and a killer mid-tempo(Irresponsible). But I didn’t expect Rihanna to bring it but I do expect Kelly Rowland & Ashanti to come with it on their next albums

    Rihanna needs a director that can take her videos and career to a new height cause Anthony Mandlers videos arent cutting it. I do like some of Melinas videos. I think her best one was Shariffas Like a Boss video i remember seeing it and being like “WOAH who directed this”. With a good concept, back drop and visual effects the video could be somethin serious, i kno Melina will come through with a bangin video.

    [Reply]

    james Reply:

    @rachel, i love gaga and all but you have your facts all wrong. Technically, GaGa only has 2 number 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 (Poker Face and Just Dance). Love Game and Paparazzi were not number 1 on those charts but on the top 40 airplay charts. She never released a fifth single from that album unless you include The Fame Monster as part of it. Bad Romance hasn’t hit #1 yet but hopefully it will.

    Also, I don’t get why you are hating on Rihanna.I get you are a Beyonce fan but you got to admit Rihanna is an international star even if this cd is not selling as well. Rihanna has the same number of number 1s as Beyonce and achieved them all in less than 4 years. That says something.

    I’m sorry to say but GaGa is slaying all the chicks out right now including Beyonce. Beyonce can’t touch her. Bad Romance is a video Beyonce can only dream of making.

    will e. johnson Reply:

    @rachel, all of the artist you mentioned are doing something right to stay in the game. Rihanna’s cd did not flop, in fact it a career high. This chick has never been good with first week sales, and I dont think she wont get it right until another 2-3 albums, but what you have failed to realize is that this girl is a international superstar. A INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR, unless she goes off in a downward spiraling mess, her career will never be over. The album has solid reviews, and will eventually hit double platnium.
    I see that you don’t like Rihanna, and that’s okay, but to spend your time bashing her career, seems a little immature. I don’t care for Beyoncé that much, not that she’s a vocal powerhouse, nor that she is the bar for the modern female act (for now); she has not challenged herself to go out of her box. Yet I respect her.

    @james, Gaga is what the industry needs. Technically her and Kanye (I’ll just leave him here cause that will start a whole other argument) are the two that are challenging the mainstream music concept or the destroying the “old way of doing things.” They recognize their fans and deliver EVERY TIME beyond what’s expected of them (performance wise, Kanye is still working on the publicity). They challenge those around them to perform at the level we wish to see them at.

    Lol, Rihanna can go as “hard” as she wants with Melina but let’s be real Rihanna lacks presence as far as choreography and her video presence is quite boring to watch. Thank God for fashion or this bitch would’ve been dead to this industry long ago. Rihanna never displays any growth in her vocals and she’s constantly recycling the same moves and expressions in her videos. I think she needs to learn this lesson and come back hard. Each and every girl takes their turn at flop ex: Mariah, Mary J. Blige, Janet, Ciara; but Rihanna can come back if she focuses on her performance and prensence instead of publicity tactics. I just can’t wait for 2010 though because the competition is going to be feirce when Ciara drops her next albums :) -Keny

    *munching popcorn* some people just have time on their hands. All I have to say is rihanna needs to switch it up. Mandler is ok but borderline depressing at times( except Disturbia and Live ur life. WTH was Wait ur turn, good job I liked the song before that).
    Dance Rihanna, Dance. Even a pcd/jlo/lady gaga routine. Ur Bajan and I know Caribbean gyals can wine. After S.O.S she kinda stopped. Umbrella doesn’t really count. :p
