Directed by Melina Matsoukas (“Hard,” “S&M,” “Rude Boy” and “Rockstar 101”), the video features British model/boxer Dudley O’Shaughnessy as Rihanna’s green-eyed love interest. The smoldering couple make their way through Belfast, Ireland, experiencing the ups and downs of love.
“We’ve never done a video like this before. This is probably one of the deepest videos I’ve ever done,” Rihanna explained of the video. “It’s all about love and love being like a drug, you definitely get that from this.”
Talk That Talk is due in the U.S. on November 21.
