I suggest taking a deep breath before watching the Rihanna 'We Found Love' music video. The Barbados native released the video for the first single off of her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk (which comes out on November 18th) and it is dark and disturbing to say the least.
The Rihanna We Found Love music video stars a male actor (who could quite possibly be Chris Brown’s twin) as Rihanna’s love interest, and if that wasn’t odd enough, the video turns into a depiction of an ultimately destructive relationship. Full of drugs, physical violence, yelling and more drugs, the video is awfully reminiscent of the anti-drug film 'Requiem for a Dream.'
As someone who loves the controversial and outspoken singer, I stand behind the message of the Rihanna We Found Love video, but that doesn’t mean I’m not still completely rattled after watching it.
