Behind the Video: Rihanna – ‘You Da One’

Rihanna

Rihanna bares her blonde ambition on set of the video for “You Da One,” the second single off her sixth album Talk That Talk. An exhausted RiRi, who was running on an hour of sleep, sported a blonde wig as she shot scenes against a brick wall in a studio in London town. The Melina-directed clip is expected to debut before the year’s end. Go behind the scenes with the Bajan beauty below.

    Now that I’ve watched it… It looks okay. It looks kinda boring, tbh.

    hi_h8er Reply:

    @Redchainsaw, talented? no. overrated? yes. There’s too many in this industry why is it like that? I think JoJo is talented and is very underrated, and to be honest Ciara is talented. Call me a hater or whatever but a lot of people know its true they just hate. She can sing and dance. Yeah her last 2 albums didn’t sell well but I blame her old label for screwing her because everyone knew how talented she was when she first came out.

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @hi_h8er, What does Ciara have to do with this? Leave her be. She was comfortable in that dormant career of hers. The word “Talent” comprises a multitude of accomplishments and capabilities, like having 11 number one hits in just 5 years time and having a single atop the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks straight (see “We Found Love” for reference). That my dear, is TALENT. :)

    @Redchainsaw, I see you must be a fan of Rihanna. Maybe you should change your name to “Red Lipstick” instead of “Redchainsaw” dear.

    @Audrey Hepburn, I guess the #NAVY has their own definition of Talented?

    [Reply]

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @KillBill, I’m not a part of the #NAVY. I just know quality dance music when I hear it. She may not be a vocal powerhouse, but she’s a damn good POP MEGASTAR – just check Billboard Hot 100 if you’re still confused.

    KillBill Reply:

    @Audrey Hepburn, So having TALENT is having rank on the Billboard. Wow. Katy Perry just tied MJ w/ #1s so she must be a mega pop star. TALENT=Natural aptitude or skill. DANCE, VOCALS, ATHLETIC, DRAWING, RAPPING, WRITING, <==== RIHANNA doesn't have any of them. HMMMMMMMMMMM….

    @KillBill, babahaha you real mad *chuckles

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @KillBill, Dependent upon who you ask, Katy is a mega pop star. In my opinion Katy has no talent – but Rihanna is the youngest female to accomplish what she has. Her record speaks for itself. For you and the countless others who doubt her talent: I really don’t care b/c you’re entitled to your opinions,

    BUT we both know who doesn’t have ANY talent… Countdown … 10…9…8…7..6..5..4..3..2..1… B.

    Marilyn Monroe Reply:

    @Audrey Hepburn, yes B has a talent. talent for stealing, copying and recycling peoples work. lmao

    hi_h8er Reply:

    I wanna see the video I wonder what’s taking so long? But I thought she said she didn’t want to be a gimmick?

    Rihanna doesn’t stop! <<< NOW I THINK ANYONE CAN AGREE WITH THAT! – I admire her hard work. She's constantly delivering something new to her fans and does a great job of staying true to who she is. I like this clip – but I'll choose to save my opinions until I see the final. Melina usually goes hard so I guess we ought to look out for something really dope! So, with that said: Do ya thang, do ya thang, do ya, do ya, do ya thang RiRi! haha
