The album is Rated R, pop fans, but RiRi is rated F this week for “freaking ubiquitous”: The official video for her just-dropped second single “Wait Your Turn” comes post Glamour-cover unveiling, pre-Diane Sawyer sit-down, and mere hours after her full tracklist reveal, complete with guest stars (will.i.am, Young Jeezy, Slash).
The clip, like the song, strays far from the chart princessa’s habitual high-gloss R&B shine; here, she’s filmed in grainy black and white—the eye-patched outlaw in a deserted noir cityscape, laying down tough island-girl boasts over a spare, digital-hand-clap beat. Church pews and angel wings, shrouded in nocturnal mists? So Keanu in Constantine. Watch it below:
So what do you think, Music Mixers? I wasn’t fully feeling it yesterday, but it’s growing on me. A little levity up in this goth-gasm wouldn’t hurt, though; I’m reserving my judgment for the full album.
