The adorably talented kids from Brooklyn’s PS22 Chorus have done it again! This time, they’re taking on Rihanna’s hot track “We Found Love” — one of my favorites! — giving the song a uniquely innocent and hopeful flair. Loves it.
I’ve been kind of “meh” on Rihanna for awhile now and not particularly inspired by her recent music or the way she’s illustrated her songs in music videos. By my tune has been changed by the just-released video for her super danceable song “We Found Love” — you know, the video which got her kicked off a farmer’s land for running around topless? Anyway, it is one of the best videos I’ve seen in awhile (well, okay, since Beyonce’s “Countdown”); beautifully shot, the video tells the story of a relationship we can only assume — thanks to the Chris Brown look-a-like, for one — was at least in part inspired by her own with Brown. Couple falls madly in love and initially has the time of their lives together; that love devolves into obsession and finally violence. The video has a hyper speedy energy that’s intense to watch, particularly during the scene where the boyfriend tattoos “MINE” on Rihanna’s bare butt. This, as far as I am concerned, is the best video Rihanna has ever done and “We Found Love” is certainly one of her more inspired songs. Consider me “meh” no more. What do you think of the video?
