My final video in the week of women is technically by a man, but DJ Khaled’s role here is basically to deliver very brief opening and closing remarks, and bounce awkwardly in the background in between.
No, this video belongs entirely to Rihanna, and god bless her for it. Shot in the Little Haiti neighborhood in DJ Khaled’s hometown of Miami, this is a gorgeous, sensual clip, drenched in color and sweat. It is also one of the most GIF-able videos of 2017, and every one of those GIFs features Rihanna writhing erotically.
In other words, this is one of the finest uses of film since Citizen Kane.
