Rihanna’s ‘Man Down’ Video Said to be ‘Shocking,’ ‘Uplifting’
Rihanna has never been one to shy away from controversy when it comes to her music videos. Whether it be the sexy wardrobe choices in 'Rude Boy' or salacious commentary on pop culture for 'S&M,' the Bajan beauty likes to keep it interesting which, according to director Anthony Mandler, she will once again achieve for her forthcoming 'Man Down' video.
In an interview with MTV, Mandler promised that the video will not disappoint. "We shot the video last month in Jamaica and it's my favorite song she's ever recorded, so I was really excited to get involved," he said.
"It's just one of those songs that demands a strong narrative and visual, and let's just say she let me go all the way," Mandler continued. "I think you can expect something that's dramatic and shocking and intense and emotional and uplifting and enlightening."
Mandler and Rihanna have worked on 16 videos together and likens their latest collaboration to an "ethereal" and "empowering" video that is going to blow fans away.
Rihanna has been going non-stop since releasing her fifth album 'Loud' in November, which has since gone platinum. This summer, the singer will embark on her headlining tour, kicking off June 4 in Baltimore.
