Rihanna

Rihanna busted out the red, white, and blue on set of the Melina-directed video for “We Found Love” in the open fields of County Down, Northern Ireland, on Monday (Sept. 26). The pop goddess bared her gorgeous body in a red bandana top, long flannel shirt, and dirty denim as the wind whipped through her flowing brown hair. She changed into an American flag bikini, denim vest, and ripped jeans while shooting additional scenes, reminiscent of the visuals for her LOUD single “Only Girl (In the World).”

The Calvin Harris-produced cut is already topping the iTunes charts worldwide and is the first single from her sixth album, due November 21.
