Video: Rihanna – ‘Man Down’

Rihanna

Rum pum pum pum. Rihanna fires off a strong message in the powerful video for “Man Down,” the reggae-tinged single from her latest album Loud. Set against the beauty of Jamaica, the Barbados-born singer tells the compelling story of a sexually-abused woman in the Anthony Mandler-directed clip.

In the opening sequence, a long-haired RiRi is seen shooting a man before flashing back to the prior morning to explain what triggered the deadly series of events. Little Miss Sunshine rides her bike through the parish of Portland, hanging with the boys in her neighborhood, before journeying to a nightclub where she meets a man. After dancing together, he forces himself upon her. She resists his advances, but he doesn’t back down, leaving her in tears.

But it’s Rihanna who gets the final say, taking matters into her own hands and putting an end to her abuser’s life. That’ll teach you a lesson.

    IT WAS CUTE. OF COURSE IT HAD A LOT OF BORING MOMENTS. NOT “EPIC” , NOT “TERRIBLE”

    I SEE RIHANNA’S TEAM IS STILL PERSISTANT ON HER PLAYING THE VICTIM. SMH

    @The Truth,

    Ignorance. Rihanna has never played the victim, nor has she wanted to be perceived as one. What does that have to do with the video anyway? You are what I would call a hater.

    Because she won a grammy for “Only Girl” and I’m pretty sure that wasn’t a collaboration. So get out of here with yo nonsense.

    @ katie, The last Grammy that Rihanna won was for “Only girl in the world”. There were no other feature artist on that song. Furthermore, she is a writer, she wrote songs on her Rated R album.

    Stopping hating on riri, your like a ball of negative energy. BYE HATER!!!

    Me Reply:

    @katie, like everybody say, she won the grammy for only girl like a solo artist and she wrote some of the Rated R songs, so… please, search more information before talk. People are so exaggerated, keep calm. I think this video it’s emotional, I like it so much. She and Anthony Mandler did a good job.

    @maya,
    It’s women like you that give us all a bad name. A woman is beaten every 8.5 seconds according to reports. A woman is killed from domestic violence every day and is raped, as well. How is it that you can’t find enlightenment out of this instead of bringing your Chris Brown, stalker issues in here? Chris Brown BEAT HER. Deal with it. Why don’t you watch a little, news reporting and turn off of your 106&Park sometime and you just MIGHT come face to face with the real world and ALL of its ugliness. Who do you THINK is committing ALL of these UGLY crimes against women? The Loch Ness monster? Count Dracula? The Boogey Man? NO. It’s people that you see everyday and you never suspect. They walk around undetected because they can preach or teach or perform surgical procedures. Yes, they even can dance and sing, just like your beloved Chris Brown. They aren’t one-eyed monsters or FREAKS with disabling features or hideous, ugly faces..they are handsome, charming, sexy human beings who HIDE their darkness in the inside. You are a fool, Maya, and I hope you learn THIS before you subject YOUR daughter, unknowingly to danger because he looks “normal” or because he sings your favorite song. I had to learn the hard way. You will, too. R. Kelly was my knight and I was defender until I saw what he did to that little girl. Just like you KNOW what he did to Rihanna. He didn’t FIGHT her…he BEAT her. BEAT HER. HE BIT HER. That’s sad. It’s sick and its a darkness that he hasn’t quite worked out completely, yet.

    Grow up.

Bey stans dont need to go on other people’s posts and talk abt her or put that person down bc our girl run this shit and we dnt have to prove anything bc she already proves it with her talent. Oh and fuck a billboard artist of the year or whatever to whoever said that. My bitch got the MILLENIUM award, artist of the decade, and radio artist of the decade. Top that bitch. Rihanna wouldnt be here without bey-true tea. That’s y she got compared to her so much in the beginning, but then cut her hair to stand out, How abt get some talent and let that stand out. Bey’s hair has been the same color her whole life and will continue to stay that color bc her talent shines, not her hair. Ppl respect her for her talent, not how good she can dress. Remember who rihanna said her idol was. Do i need to send yall the video link? Didnt think so bc i know yall saw it.

    Love the video. Haters can talk all the shit they want but at the end of the day guess who holds a lot of records on the charts and history will say so. Over 4.2 million WW of Loud in under 7 months, 3 #1 so far off of Loud , Billboard radio artist of the year, Billboard female artist of the year. No gimmicks needed to get those. She got those legitimately. Haters can continue to talk but guess what they are not hindering her success. If she is a flop then 99% of the industry is also because she is doing better than the majority of the industry. Rihanna keep doing your thing. If God is for you who can be against you.

    [Reply]

    Keeping it Realz Reply:

    @NickeyRockstar, There are gimmicks to get those Billboard awards but she did hit it big on the radio but I don’t like her songs like Rude Boy, Hard, Love the way you lie, and S&M for a woman who got beat up and it became a big deal to come out with music like that so soon afterwards was not approirate at all because its not a good message to send people who look up to you especially lyrically

Can she sing live-CONSISTENTLY. Can she dance and sing at the same time-live? How you gonna be a pop singer, but don’t dance. Does she perform great-CONSISTENTLY.

    Its a video to support a song, not a dance video. If i wanted that, id buy a fitness dvd by a fading celebrity. Having some random ‘dance’ move in a video doesn’t make a video good. If it so, as some people are saying, that all the other artists are dancing in their videos, then damn. You know what? id say that by her not dancing…makes the video unique. I view that as a positive….Man Down is a fan fav. You cant not like it. Great, well done RiRi. LOUD is a phenomenal album with hit single after hit single….NB. to those saying CKB flopped, really? it was released as a single after a fan vote…its a fan pleaser…When has Ri ever released two videos in the space of three weeks….wise up please……and on a final note, just in reference to a lot of people on here, you can say sit down or take a seat without having a point…Thats all

    Rihanna’s video was amazing, and it knocks me out that it was nothing I’d expect. If you don’t like it, it’s good to know you didn’t but every video needs to have a message. This is it.

  99. ughreally

    Good song, she sounds great doing the riddim.

    Why are ya’ll saying she’s playing the victim again. The lyrics are about her feeling GUILT because the person shot was a human with family too. And the video portrays sexual assault rape which is not a person ‘s fault, EVER.

    Now in life…yes she exploited the victim situation. There are multiple victims when it comes to fighting and the song and video is actually her taking some responsibility in that situation. Yes someone hurt you but should you kill them?
    Yes, someone cheats on you, but should you hit them? Yes someone is wrong, but are they the only one wrong? Maybe in real life she should’ve been more honest since her interviews, police report, and physical pictures showed THREE different things. But in her music she’s more truthful then ever.

    People stop using the word ‘victim’ so lightly

    I would like to say I am a fan of both Rihanna and Bey. They are both great artists. If people would once and for all let go of all the comparisons in artistry then the music industry would be in a better state.

    The video is great! And many of those boring parts were used for transitions in the story line. Is it me or do the last couple of generations have a huge attention deficit?

    I don’t understand why people continue to even refute negative post. Many people do that just to be antagonistic. The end.

    I loved the video, but it’s very similar to “Find Your Love”. I think the same guy produced it right? I was surprised BET aired a video about shooting someone though, knowing how strict BET is. Either way, I hope this video boosts the song to #1, it grew on me like crazy.

    [Reply]

  105. Damn.

    The video was intense, well only the end, Riri gets raped, and shoots the man, she’s trying to teach girls that rape shouldn’t be handled alone, but with some help.

    Cool video, cool story, could’ve been done better though.

    She’s no gaga, no beyonce, no anyone else, but herself.
    She’s done a boss job with her loud album, and all you haters need to stop hating on the girl.

    I’m not a rihanna fan like far from it, I just can’t do it for my own reasons. I will say this brings me back to when she first came out with Pon De Replay, I loved that song and the reggae feel that it had. I would love for her to use her accent more like she did here, cause to me that’s when she truly shines and you just get that cool vibe from her and becomes more unique. This video was one of her best, I hope to god it didn’t end like that cause that pissed me off,lol!

    The song is good and the video is okay,
    but if she performs it live, I will end up hating it. Thats what usually happens. She

    Stan-wars.com

    She is ok, she is just ok, she can’t sing like Beyoncé, she can’t shock like Gaga, she can’t dance like Ciara. She has nothing going for her except her good looks, the girl is hot.. She inspires a lot of girls to basically be her… I don’t think she should be shooting people in videos tho,

    The message should be “do not deal with it alone, get help”…

    She’s an ok artist, she makes ok “commercial” music that should sell! And sell she does so I guess mission accomplished….

    Before someone bites my head off on the ciara comment, le me just say, don’t bother, I don’t like ciara either, so dissing ciara trying to make me feel bad will achieve nothing…

    Rihanna was so right, “you can’t please everyone and people gon’ talk whether you doing bad or good.”
    I could have sworn this was RIHANNA’S post for her new video idk why Beyonce is being brought up. Anyway, people never wanna let Rihanna do her and are so quick to call her boring and talentless. If Rihanna is so boring now then she must have been boring before so IDK why the same people continue to watch her vids, perfomances etc. No matter WTF Rihanna does people will always have something bad to say about her, but I’m sure she thanks you for keeping her name in your mouth and keeping her even more relevant.

    I think this is a great video but people can’t just say whether they like it or not. They gotta go bring up grammys, other artists and old news. I just don’t get it….

If you don’t like the song or video then why even waste your time to look at it? People can’t give this girl a break! First you hate the Good Girl Gone Bad Ri, then she comes out with Rated R. You hate that and want her to go back to the GGGB Ri. Now she has her Loud album and you want her to go back to the Rated R Rihanna. Wth! Rihanna has NEVER played the victim in ANY of her videos. So I don’t understand where those comments are even coming from. Bottom line, hate her / love her. Doesn’t matter. Cause that Rihanna reign won’t let up!!

    Im not sure what to say about this song. Firstly it is catchy and it’s alright but i hate the fact and i know im going to be put on blast for this that is his this concept of a man abusin her then she killing him and then she feels guilt because it seems like the cb situation all over again. For me it feels like a gimmick to make everyone remember what happened between them especially when he doing an amazin job at rebuilding his image.The video it self was really good at establishing the concept but m issue is that she liked being pressed against and grinding wid that man and she enjoyed his hands all on her and the image that she suports to me is that its okay to show skin and b a cock tease and yet eb in the wrong enviroment for a young girl and not expect shit to happen. her ans are young and so they may go to a club house party where drinking and drugs is taking place and they are weraing skimpy outits and moing their bodies in suggestive manners yet expect that nothing will hapen. Yes in some cases this happen unexpectedly happens but this video shows that you can go to a shady party and not expect these things. anyways she played her role really well and the videos is alright.

    @Name here,
    thats not what i am saying. The video portrays that its okay to so into such a seedy environment, wall into an alleyway that sream rape by urself and she left without friends. she was in the club havin sex with clothes on with him and didnt think about the consequences. there are some places young girls cannot go wearin next to nothing and not espet something bad to happen. her video portrays that its okay to go to these places and dress anyhow yet it will be ok.

    Just SHUT THE FUCK UP!
    I’ll never understand some people .. if you dont like Rihanna why the hell would you waste YOUR time and come look at a RIHANNA video and then complain & write bullshit ass comments? Omg, do better. You can’t compare Lady Gaga, Beyonce, nor Rihanna .. They all have they’re own style. Whether it’s music, clothes, and etc. Whether you like it or not Rihanna is successful and making millions off y’all bitch asses who keep hating & coming on here to VIEW her videos or ANYTHING she’s doing, while y’all aint no where near it. In the end, she gets the last laugh. And I’m done.

    I find it interesting that so many people feel the need to argue about talent like that is what the main issue is.

    The video is saying “well he hurt me so i should kill him”. Thats really not the right way to handle things. I like Rihanna but this was not a responsible concept.

    [Reply]

    Red Boy Reply:

    @Ross, That’s not the message. The video is telling what not to do, that you shouldn’t handle stuff like rape on your own.

  151. OhYEEEA!

    This was a great video visually, and touched on a very important issue….RAPE against young women, which occur daily. Of course she isnt dancing choreo! Its NOT a dance song people!!!

    These young FAGS need to stop worrying about the next dance they can do in the clubs, and give props where props are due. Im not a STAN, but clearly Rih is doing her thing this LOUD era. This was her best video in my opinion

    rapist beware after this song many women and girls are going to be out for revenge hooooo lol. bit extreme but its no different from bohemian rapshody. yall remember that song. “mama i just killed a man, i put a gun against head pulled the trigger now he is dead, mama ooooooo…” so yall shouldnt be quick to judge rihanna. and if this is how she is dealing with whole chris brown thing then cool, let her have her angry music as long as she is not taking the anger out physically on people its fine. we all have our own coping mechanisms. i went thru what she went thru and i took up boxing yes its violence but i am punching a bag instead of a person, she is saying it lyrically instead of shooting chris brown. its her form of therapy allow her that.

    @rinaboo, How or who are YOU to tell someone how to deal with one of the most TRAUMATIC things a woman would ever have to do with in her life?! Obviously, you lack sympathy and KNOW nothing about trauma. It’s called PTSD or better “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder”, it happens to anyone who’s been close to death or seen something traumatic, i.e., losing a child, witnessing a murder, 9-1-1, etc. Grow up! You are displaying your childishness and immaturity and should really go and pick up a book and educate yourself.

    I thought This was a really good clip! Rihanna returning back to her Carribean roots, I understand why the parents goups are having a cry about the clip, but honestly why would any good parent allow their small children to watch any of the clips on tv? they are all violent or sexual in nature.. c’mon people and stop complaining! Rihanna gave the bastard what he deserved!!!

    [Reply]

  157. robm

    Well it’s not that controversial – there have been plenty of songs before in other decades also based on man’s violent lovers revenge on women/men, evidence Tom Jones ‘Delilah’, Hendrix ‘Hey Joe’ Queen ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and many others…and the song on it’s own is nothing really to stir a reaction. The main points come from the shamelessly ‘soft-core’ treatment of the mini movie with her prancing round town braless with her tits bouncing in a thin top and steaming up in a club etc and the entire atmosphere looks like a steamed up CK advert or hip hop gangsta club scene so tbh it’s all trivial sensationalism and I think any attempt to make it into a ‘serious message’ blah blah is just trashy cash-in and undeserved. It’s a pop video, nothing more, stylised edited and ‘shot’ for effect..out to make money not highlight causes.. who is anyone kidding?

    I don’t get what the big deal about this video is. Lots of male rappers include violence, guns and shooting in their videos, yet suddenly when a woman shoots her rapist it causes a huge controversy? Seems like people want women to be sweet and innocent and when a woman stands up for herself and won’t put up with abuse, they condemn her. She’s not “playing the victim”, quite the opposite, she’s refusing to be a victim any more.

    Rihanna doesn’t have talent and she cannot dance for shit, but the songs are catchy. I know her fans are going to claim she wrote on “Rated R.” Bitch only added an “I.”

  170. From sweden

    I don’t understand why you would compare beyonce and rihanna, it’s like you can’t like beyonce and rihanna, why would you choose one of them that you will like and the other one should you choose to hate. I don’t like the song man down but i loved the video, i don’t like beyonce new song ‘run the world (girls)’ but i love ‘halo’ and ‘if i were a boy’. They are artist the make art sometimes you don’t like the art sometimes you do.
    Stop hating on beyonce.stop hating on rihanna they are artist they both have won and lost and it will probably be so in future also.
    So stop compare artist with each other and let them create art because thats what they were born to do!! btw i really loved this video.

    people calm yourselves. She is just trying to bring a very serious issue to light. Rape that happens alot and no one takes it serious until you take justice into your own hands. Then its too late. so the victim is hurt twice and its not her fault.

    I love the song every woman that has every been abuse feels like killing her abuser she shows how she feels and it could have happened yesterday or years ago the feeling is like being raped and stays your whole life and you idoits that are staying playing the victim has never had it happen to them

    Loved the clip… I’m not a major Riri fan but I love it when she has more of a reggae style to her songs… suits her voice way better than the pop songs. As for people saying she can’t dance, it would look pretty weird if she started breaking out lady gaga or Beyonce moves in the middle of this clip??? I think they incorporated some great dance moves in there given the theme of the song, Riri’s moves as well as some shots from dancers at the party managed to portray the atmosphere very well… I loved her moves… totally hot!! AND atleast you can pull off Riri’s moves at a club without looking like a Lady Gaga or Beyonce wannabe (lmao)
