Rihanna is a primitive, tribal goddess in the video for ‘Where Have You Been.’ The vid opens with the sexy singer submerged in water, up to her eyeballs, literally. She is staring at us like a concealed predator at the top of the food chain, about to strike. And that’s how it is throughout the entire video. The singer is a dominant warrior princess who likes to dance and cavort in natural settings. A lot.
This is one of RiRi’s most dance-centric videos. The scene quickly moves from water to land, as she grooves in red harem pants, while surrounded by male tribesmen — who dance just as furiously in the sand. There’s even some fire. Clearly, the elements factor prominently into ‘Where Have You Been.’
The scene shifts inside, to a dark, club-like place. Ri’s rocking big, bold, natural curls and winged eyebrows. Lookout. She may start a trend at brow salons with those things. RiRi shows lots of skin, too. There are lots of scenes where she is alone in the jungle and singing.
