“It’s like screaming and no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone can be that important, that without them you feel like nothing. No one will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you and when it’s over and its gone you almost wish that you can have all that bad stuff back so you can have the good.”
That’s what Rihanna’s brand new video for ‘We Found Love’ starts off with. A video that many fans are already buzzing about. At first I had to disagree, I didn’t think this guy looked anything like Chris Brown. But the more I watch it, the more I can’t deny the uncanny resemblance of her love interest to that of her infamous ex-boyfriend. Although I don’t believe the video is all about him, you can’t ignore the fact that the entire relationship greatly impacted Rihanna & this video most liked was inspired by that.
The entire video is so magnetic. Whether you’ve been in a situation as dramatic & self-destructive as the one portrayed in her new Requiem For A Dream-ish video or not, I think many people can relate. Love is a drug & this one definitely wins my vote for best video of the year. Rihanna & genius director Melina Matsoukas did an amazing job at delivering this intense love story. Check it out below!
