Video: Rihanna f/ Drake – ‘What’s My Name?’

Rihanna and Drake

Rihanna and Drake get up close and personal in the Philip Andelman-directed video for “What’s My Name?,” the chart-topping single off RiRi’s new album Loud, in stores next week. The pair shows some PDA in a New York City bodega where Drizzy spits game to the red-haired siren who showers him with kisses, also hitting their apartment where things get even steamier. Watch them fire up the screen below.

    she looked good, but the video was boring.

    Her budget for videos must be low the album/era. I cant believe she just walked around in the same outfit throughout the WHOLE VIDEO???

    #THATSIT???

    The BIG budget was used for the “Only Girl” (In the World) video. This was more of a raw organic video but its obvious Def jam will be producing way more videos for this LOUD era.

    This is her 2nd single/2nd video… it isn’t normal for a record label to put out videos per single.

    I rather see her have less video/singles and they be HOT, instead of 10 cheap ones lol.

  13. NAKED_TRUTH718

    what??? Only Girl was a very BIG budget video… in fact non of rihannas videos are cheap. This girl is a A-list star… her team knows exactly what they are doing. THIS VIDEO IS HOT… period.

  16. Phil-Up

    No…just no!

    I guess they thought Rihanna and Drake’s “passion” and “sexual tension” could carry the video, but they don’t look into each other at all…

    The video kind of messes up the song a little for me.

    i liked it i guess but i feel they kinda messed it up..cus i think the 1st (solo version song/video) the white guys with the braids was suppose to be the main guys instead of drake..idk it seemed 2 diffrent videos put 2gether

    This song alone went to #1 before this video was even released so if there was never a video for this song it wouldnt matter. The video stays true to the essense of the song i couldnt have seen this video be with special effects and all that because its not that type of song that needs that type of visual.

  34. meme

    since i go hard on everyone else it is only right that i say that i am slightly disappointed in my girl. I expect way more dancing. Rihanna frustrate me, cuz she looks so cute when did they 2 moves…i jus dont understand why she dont dance more. Im not sayin sweat ur pu**y out like ciara but my god, do a little more. I love her to death tho, and she looked gorgeous in the video

    Basically, the video was in the process of just being her in it, then they released the “remix” with Drake, which is now considered the official version of What’s My Name, due the positive feedback they received. So, since the song wasn’t considered a remix anymore, they just “threw” Drake in the video…which is literally what they did…threw him in the goddamn video.

    Moral of my point…it was boring and thrown together. When they could’ve just re-did it, or released two versions…I mean Diddy-Dirty Money did it for Hello, Goodmorning.

    And why couldn’t they chosen a better director…Joseph Kahn, Hype W., and maybe even Anthony Mandler, again.

    I had high hopes. Wutev’s. =/

    She sleeping through his album, phoning it in but still having success so good for her.

    I’ve never heard Drake before – THAT’S what he sounds like?! Wth? lol Him and Lil’ Wayne and Nicki all have nasal rapping voices. Suki ja nai yo!

  55. cari s.

    Boring and basic. Just like her. Both song and video are just full of basicness.

    Isn’t her new album called ‘LOUD’? And wasn’t this supposed to be her ‘Thriller’ album? Lol. How delusional. Just like her (and her fans).

  63. queen

    @cari s.

    ur opinion would be really effective if you alredy wasnt the same hater that comes on rihanna posts just to talk sh*t…well guess what sweetheart what’s my name is already number one and critics are already prasing that album as the best pop album of 2010 (entertainment weekly gave it a A- =p)…so yea like usual the hater loses…

  67. Alwaysontime

    nice video but a little boring sumthing missing, good work thought.

    It s been a long time since Rihanna has been able to put out a nice znd simple song who fit her under average voice skills.

    The song is good.

    [Reply]

  68. Alfred Islas

    Such a terrible video, Rihanna could be doing a lot more with this song, but this video is complete trash. All she does is walk around and sing in this damn video, how many times has it been done already? It was such a good song too, I absolutely adore it.

    Rihanna’s last two videos have been complete trash, she needs to step it the f*ck up.

  70. cari s.

    @queen No, in this case … the hater doesn’t lose. Seriously, is that the best what you can come up with? Even Kleotra$ha scored a number 1 hit last week. Scoring a #1 Billboard ‘hit’ nowadays doesn’t say much. Call me when Rihfund is able to have an influence on pop music, sell a bunch of albums and tour tickets.

    And besides , it is a fact that she and her best friend Katy Perry will be forgotten , once Gaga and Beyonce come up with their albums.

    [Reply]

  71. I guess!!!

    @ Cari … Gaga and Beyonce couldnt stop her with rude boi and they release telephone round the same time.  Just b/c you dont like her doesnt mean she cant hold her own.  She a proven 
    artist and she influencing new artist like WIllow.

  77. Sindya

    The only reason they didn’t look that into each other was that Rihanna played it cool cause of Matt and Drake knew he could only go so far.

    [Reply]

  78. PUHLEASE!!!

    I don’t see why Drake was even necessary through out the video. The vid would of been just fine with her walking to the rhythm down the street through the whole thing. But, it was cute for what it was.

    [Reply]

  79. Whatcha_Sayin

    She’s saving her killer video for S&M- her third single. Apparently LOUD is supposed to be like THRILLER and remember the videos before Thriller the song?

    @cari s.
    Well, here is the thing: you say Rihanna will be forgotten? Well, then maybe you just don’t know that Rihanna is the most sucessful artist in the last 20 years. She has seven Number 1 World Hits. And don’t tell me that seven Number 1 World Hits are a “delusional thing”, because being able to have that amount of number 1′s in only 5 years of career is pretty freaking AMAZING! And just so you know, Rihanna’s last tour (“Last Girl On Earth”) sold out in most countries :)
