Rihanna's 'American Oxygen' video is now on YouTube

Rihanna first premiered the video for “American Oxygen” on Tidal last week, but now the masses can watch it, too: The history lesson of a music video is now on YouTube.

The video features footage of all kinds of historical events ranging from the good to the bad: Images of mushroom clouds and Martin Luther King, Jr. in his coffin are intercut with video of a spaceship blasting off and the Beatles facing dozens of excited fans. There are also plenty of American flags, including one Rihanna herself sings in front of throughout the video. 

“American Oxygen” is the third song Rihanna’s released recently—others include “FourFiveSeconds,” a simple acoustic jam featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney, and the controversial “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Watch the video for “American Oxygen” below.
