Following the heavy, cinematic clip for "We Found Love," Rihanna  returns to lighthearted fare in the crotch-grabbingly happy-go-lucky music video for "You Da One," which premiered online on Friday (Dec. 23).
As the only person shown traipsing around a film set in the black-and-white video, Rihanna exudes sexuality, whether she's touching her bowler hat, strutting toward the camera with a pimp cane or draping herself over a giant ball. The video also features the Barbadian pop star grabbing her crotch 11 times during its 3:28 running time, and a crotch thrust at the 2:25 mark that's a bit reminiscent of Michael Jackson 's moves.
"You Da One" is the second single from "Talk That Talk," Rihanna's sixth studio album released last month; the disc's first single, "We Found Love," just notched its eighth consecutive week at the top of the Hot 100. "Love" becomes Rihanna's longest-leading No. 1 hit; 2007's "Umbrella" with Jay-Z , and 2010's "Love The Way You Lie," featuring Eminem , previously held the top spot for seven weeks.
Earlier this week, Rihanna took to Twitter to blast the Dutch magazine Jackie for referring to her as a "n---abitch" in a recent article. Eva Hoeke, the editor-in-chief of Jackie, resigned on Tuesday following the incident.
