So we know me and you, your mama and your cousin too have all been waiting for Bad Gyal RiRi’s highly anticipated “Pour It Up” video since we heard the track earlier this year.
After many behind-the-scenes photos and a video, this afternoon the Bajan rude girl released the visuals for the strip club banger. The video begins with Rihanna walking to her Pimpstress throne in a long chinchilla coat and “Rihanna Money” stiletto shoes, reminiscent of Lil Kim during her “Hard Core” days. Afterward, viewers are greeted by three different str!ppers who can twerk on water, perform acrobatics, and clap their backside like it’s hands — sometimes all at the same damn time.
While the girls will make every guy’s fantasy come true and ladies will watch keenly to learn how to twerk on water, one thing is for certain: the tone and feel of the“Pour It Up” visuals do not compare to Rihanna’s 2011 “We Found Love” music video. Although Rihanna and her dancers were flawlessly s*xy with their pole moves, the energy in the video was lacking. “Pour It Up” is notoriously known around town as the song you plot mischief to, so the video’s final cut in a word would be: disappointment. It fell flat as Rihanna twerked her mini buttocks with a blunt in her mouth, most likely because everything we saw in the video we have already seen before on Rihanna’s Instagram. Her fans, of course, have noted their queen is back and Miley Cyrus needs to take notes (which we already knew).
Watch the video below and tell us what you think about Ri Ri’s directorial debut.
