New Video: Rihanna – ‘Needed Me’

Published: Wednesday 20th Apr 2016 by Sam

Rihanna keeps her ‘ANTI’ campaign a’rolling with the newly unwrapped video for ‘Needed Me.’

Released as a dual single (together with ‘Kiss It Better’), the moody mid-tempo has managed to soar despite the so-so performance of ‘Kiss.’

Already #33 on the Billboard Hot 100 (which is currently topped by Rih’s ‘Work’), could ‘Needed’ by exactly what the Bajan sensation needs to establish another successful face to an otherwise rocky album roll-out?

Watch the cinematic video, directed by Harmony Korine, after the jump…

Though visually stunning, the narrative isn’t unpacked in a way that’s compelling enough.

The protagonist is angry at boyfriend, hits strip club to find him, kills him, and..what?

Once again, there’s a lot of “not much” going on, which begs the question of whether it boasts anything in the way of replay value.

As ‘Kiss It’ highlighted, the days of folk tuning in to see Rih’s “twins” have long passed. Hence, we’re not sure why she keeps pushing that agenda. She’s tasked with engaging on a deeper level, but her output (even at its try-hard best) skews shallow.

Your thoughts?

    She looks beautiful

    • Adelephant (previously HYDROQINONE) April 20, 2016

      AM I the only one who feels the Video NEEDED to have Given a LITTLE MORE story and a LITTLE LESS nudity …

  2. Rated R April 20, 2016

    Ok, Rih. I liked it , kind of follows BBHMM video in the terms of the cinematography . Very Well, executed.

    • Lana Del Fan April 20, 2016

      Lana did it first and better (Check Gods and Monster & High By The Beach)

  3. Metzo April 20, 2016

    It’s boring and confusing. N i was looking forward to the vid…

  4. #Beautiful April 20, 2016

    I don’t know why… But I always find her visuals kind of corny. That’s defiantly an area she could improve in. Everyone can get better at something, right? I still love the song and the album though. I just need her to go back and redo the KIB video. That sh** is wack!

  5. IG : @mixedboy April 20, 2016

    Love it RIRI. Great album!

  6. Rihboy April 20, 2016

    The theme is simple. Someone owed her money! A more “shottas” like version of bbhmm. Loving the execution. Only problem for me is how short it seems. I wanted more. Maybe a longer prelude with the backstory too it. But nevertheless she skated. She looks very beautiful as well. 8/10 for me.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy April 20, 2016

      Yes, the theme is very simple which i do like, and I agree with you. I wish there was a little more back story, but I think not having one is the point. In one perspective, It doesn’t matter what the story is, Rihanna is that savage as she can kill the dirtiest, grungiest, most thug of them all which correlates to her as an artist who’s records’ defeat the best of them all…Right now it’s the Beatles!

      • Rihboy April 20, 2016

        You are right! She looks so damn good though. People understand the theme they just choose to hate because it’s her. ???. The hive on Instagram having meltdowns! Most of them saying she dropped it because of lemonade. Please! 4/20! Duh! It’s a perfect day for her to capitalize off of.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy April 20, 2016

        The ONLY lemonade Rihanna is concerned about is the juice she’s mixing with her vodka that she has paired with her blunt

    • rosy3 April 20, 2016

      Good video very hot and she looks naturally beautiful the thing is rih just be herself not force and over produce very like some that’s why people stream her videos to look how pretty and natural she is the haters mad because they fav aint that original go rih watch how she nab top twenty and straight to one big up bloodclot rih represent she just made my day

      • RihYonce April 20, 2016

        Yes Rihanna is very beautiful. But it’s more to it than being beautiful I love her but she gotta stop being lazy . Which is why I don’t why people keep comparing her to Beyoncé is just ridiculous. As a artist you want to grow & outdo yourself which is what Bey does & she’s not doing that & it pisses me off because Rihanna is a bad b**** she just has to take it to a new level

      • Rihboy April 20, 2016

        What did you want to see her do in this video! Swan dive off a mountain! Parasail with machine guns? Swim with sharks( which she has done for a magazine), scale a volcano? I mean she can be completely still or she can move and haters still find away to downplay her. I don’t see what so upsetting about the video besides it being to short. I wanted a bbhmm. Prelude but I mean I’ll settle for the visual.

  7. KillaB April 20, 2016

    Still love the song. Video is garbage. Sooooo disappointed.

    • rosy3 April 20, 2016

      Your p**** is garbage it’s filled with rotten eggs

      • Sean April 20, 2016

        Yes! A dozen, stinky, rotten eggs! Two dozen! It smells soooo bad.

      • KillaB April 21, 2016

        Is that why I can’t seem to pull you from my nuts, h**? #TryItOnMe #IDGT #BeMindful

  8. sleazy April 20, 2016

    i need to be nude to sell my sht ? oh okay horrible song flop album smh i didnt think rih will will be less than 1mil records ww

  9. Adam April 20, 2016

    Wow Riri you gotta do better with your videos. This aint cutting it. She is already s*** idk why she keeps flashing them tittiez smh.
    Dull video overall

    • Metzo April 20, 2016

      Tittiez everywhere ????

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        Boob’s boob’s boob’s boob’s lotta boob’s

    • rosy3 April 20, 2016

      And she looks good too I know it’s the hives hiding under fake names bashing rih this video so hot I need some lemonade ewwwwwweee

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        What gave you the impression, that we give a f*** about what you think?

  10. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy April 20, 2016

    Ayyee! Shout out to the 305…So Rihanna you’re supposed to be Pablo Escobar now? I like the message of the video that correlates to the song which is don’t underestimate me. Also Rih, is showing your tittays in every video some type of signature from the ANTI era?

  11. caribbean native April 20, 2016

    Slayed NY hot Caribbean life

  12. RihYonce April 20, 2016

    I expected more but it was good

  13. IStan4Rihanna. April 20, 2016

    ITS TOO FUĆĶÍNG SHORT. 🙁

    .

    Nonetheless, it’s a Great video. It’s sleek, visually striking and edgy. My favourite of the era thus far. Good job, Queen. 😉
    .
    *Lights a Blunt in Honor of “4/20”.

    • Rihboy April 20, 2016

      Right! I was like where is the rest ????. But furthermore the video fits the era. Rihanna always flasher titties idk why people are still taken back by it ???. I love the video. Just wish it was a bit longer! She is a person who doesn’t need all the extra graphics and animations to make a video visually stimulating. The song doesn’t call for high energy choreography or stunts. Basically like a mob in the Caribbean type video. I’ll say it’s better than pillow talk, dangerous woman, and or any other videos recently released. I’m sure it will surpass one million in 24 probably more than that.

  14. Kitteneyez April 20, 2016

    Riri I love your b****** keep showin them off ?

  15. Molly April 20, 2016

    Its ok felt something was missing tho..

        We all liked you so much better before you started trolling as Jackie/Cinnamon.
        You swore to the GAWDS that you were “done” with this site. MAKE IT HAPPEN.

  17. Anti(hives scared of R8) April 20, 2016

    Gtfoh she did that! I loved how she walked into the club like a bad b*tch.I wanted more.

  18. #JACKIE April 20, 2016

    Pointless video but at least it’s charting unlike her halitosis rivals current single….

    • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

      The PRINCE is here….
      HEara!!!! ??

      • mmmhmm April 20, 2016

        Sorry but I don’t talk to strangers #DISMISSED

      • Queen Ci April 20, 2016

        You’ve been dragged too many times by the Ci-Squad and the Navy with your weak clapbacks. It’s time for you to come up with new shade because you can’t even sit with Rihyonce, Career Ender or Surprise. You are pathetic.

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        Don’t come for me unless my limo driver sends for you peasant

    • Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

      #Jackie, Chile haven’t you heard? Dumbyonce has been blacklisted that’s why she keeps flopping

      • Queen Ci April 20, 2016

        Janet got blacklisted and charted much better than Bleachyonce.

      • Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

        Yes she did. Janet was only blacklisted from the Superbowl. Beyawnce’s blacklist is much bigger

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        HeHe might as well black listed. He has no album. No hit. No vocals. No recording contract. No CAREER.

    • rosy3 April 20, 2016

      Oh Jackie you irrelevant ass self ciara cant get a hit even if she suck two d**** get off rih post your fav has,no career left you should be ashamed she a baby mama without marriage already bitter Betty I need to start dragging your ass because u so irrelevant I see it pointless with ciara one f****** fan run along you stinking up the place I was feeling sorry for you but,u will be dragged to hell from now on,

      • #JACKIE April 20, 2016

        Kiii b**** womp womp womp English please.

  19. grapejuicefan April 20, 2016

    Terrible ,would have been nice to see her lip syncing to the song smh ?

  20. Ty April 20, 2016

    It seemed short kinda of an anti-climax thought it have more of a story other than seeing titties everywhere. This era her videos have been boring tbh still my fav song though.

  21. bash April 20, 2016

    After seeing her nips again I stopped watching… If that’s the most interesting thing she can think of after years in this business, then I’ll pass…I’ll wait for Saturday for real talent…

    • Rihboy April 20, 2016

      You’ll wait until Saturday for ghetto yonce running around with a bat and leading black magic rituals for her coins ???. It will be all repetitive. It will be nothing but self titled all over again.

      • bash April 20, 2016

        Not what I was talking about… But Beyonce stays on your mind huh…pressed PS don’t ever come for me…you’ll end up look more foolish…

  22. Kyle April 20, 2016

    I like the song & video is cool! Would’ve been better if she made it a lil more s*** & not so dark, But it’s still nice!!

  23. A&R April 20, 2016

    The very rare moment I agree with Sam. Sigh… You’re right. It’s visually stunning but that’s it. Rih, I see you have bought into the rock star image… Not using much movement to aid your visuals and live showing but your fans actually enjoy seeing you move. You don’t have to hit hard like Bey but you can’t just stand around. Your don’t off enoug variety in vocals to have such bare showings. Nevertheless, I still appreciate your MO in other ways and you are truly hitting that ripe womanhood. The late 20s early 30s for women is PRIME TIME! Lord she looks to good. It’s crazy. But yeah, not that you should care but we’re starting to feel entertainment deprived and looking forward to this lemonade era. We want movement, Rih. Come’on nah!

  24. Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

    Rhianna doesn’t own a shirt that you can’t NOT see thru…
    The track isn’t bad expected a far more elaborate story line

    • Queen Ci April 20, 2016

      Beyonce doesn’t own a womb that can carry a baby. What is your point, sis?

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        She has two things that Ciara doesn’t have, a career AND a record deal. That’s my point b****!

  25. Career Ender April 20, 2016

    the only way to get to #1 for her this era is tgru Samsung and Payola
    .
    she payola’d FFS and it flopped without Samsung
    .
    she payola’d Work and Samsung bought the streams for her and she finally got a #1
    .
    if she doesn’t payola this, it will tank like KIB, AO and BBHMM
    .
    FLOPP BXTCH

    • #JACKIE April 20, 2016

      sorry, a true flop would be FLOPmation. At least this song is in the top 40.

    Gaga’s last flop solo album started with ‘A’ and it flopped

  28. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy April 20, 2016

    Some of y’all are so simple minded. If a video doesn’t have an over the top, glossy storyline with choreography then it’s boring. Use the minds God gave you and think! As you watch the video, carefully listen to the lyrics. Ask yourself, what is the message that the artist is trying to convey. From listening to ANTI to seeing Rihanna on the tour, she’s telling us a stories about herself and her life through an allegorical standpoint…And before you say “she’s not that deep” go carefully listen to Consideration

    • Queen Ci April 20, 2016

      This b*tch sounds like a BeyHIVe member defending Beyonce. I cannot with this…lol

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy April 20, 2016

        I mean Ciara has made every one of her videos over the top and glossy with choreography, but where’s her career? Keri Hilson, Mya, Tweet, Lumidee, and Karli Redd say hi…Now fvck outta my reply box

    • Career Ender April 20, 2016

      oh so she’s deep?

        Shouldn’t you be more worried about getting your hair braided for the Lemonade premier? *checks Billboard and looks at that pretty ass Bajan at #1 for the 9th week in a row*

      • Rihboy April 20, 2016

        Just like how I felt when bey dropped 7/11 and formation. Also bow down, flawless, yonce, and the raft of those trashy songs covered up with glitz and glam. She does nothing different except keep her titties covered because they probably look gross and sag. Which why she is padded for the gods in her tour attire???

      • Career Ender April 20, 2016

        oh basic fallacy, celebrating payola now are we?
        .
        she’s flopping all over the globe without boight streams and payola

        Simple payola huh? Why hasn’t your fave had one since the iPhone came out?

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        @ispeak
        Why is hour fave built like the IPhone 8s ?

        And @Tyler, why hasn’t your fave had a hit since the iPhone 1?

    • Queen Ci April 20, 2016

      You stan for mediocrity. Stop being such a basic b*tch.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy April 20, 2016

        The most basic thing about me are my degrees. I have 2, and now working on my third. How many do you have? And no…the degree to which you rely on food stamps don’t count

    • A&R April 20, 2016

      I get that but there’s a more balanced way of doing that. The video isn’t bad but it leaves the viewing wanting more and it doesn’t make you want to watch it again. One and done type thing and it lacks enough dimension to fully stimulate all senses. I would’ve rather something like Hunted. Where it had cool edgy visual with some type of movement that you least expect. That beat is slow but still urges one to vibe with it. Rih seems to think out of the box enough to create concepts that pushes her to a different page. This wasn’t bad but wasn’t enough. Fell flat. Or at least I think so.

  29. Queen Ci April 20, 2016

    Apparently, Rihoenna said “f*** my fans” with this video as well as this whole Anti era. She doesn’t even try to dish out anything timeless or good.

    • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

      HEara CANT dish out anything. He was dropped from his label.

      • Queen Ci April 20, 2016

        But your Jackson 5 and Beyonce nostrils have had tons of work done. Ciara is PROUD of her Blackness, unlike Bleachyone and Michael Jackedskin.

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        Proud of her blackness? Didn’t you call me a m***** yesterday?
        B****! Don’t act like you care about people celebrating their blackness because you don’t.

      • Queen Ci April 20, 2016

        Pull the receipt where I called you a m*****. Your clapbacks are so weak. You sound like a weak, passive-aggressive white girl.

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        What you say on TGJ can and will be used against you. To be continued…..

  30. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 April 20, 2016

    No shade or hate towards Rihanna. However her videos always leaves me feeling like I’ve been cheated, they always leave you feeling like you needed just a little bit more. Her videos for this album have consistently has this problem. I like the song though!

  31. BOOBIE April 20, 2016

My girl just duppied man in a music video that’s supposed to push the song up the charts. Who’s going to be playing this on TV? Loooooool SHE KILLED IT THO, yaaaas riri

      Maybe because it’s being massively streamed instead. Alongside the free downloads and the few she did sell. Oh and the millions pirated. It’s a different era. And her demand is still there. I just hope for the hive sake that Beyoncé atleast does a quarter of adeles first week sales. I hope for her sake she sells 10 mill in a months span. You guys talking so much crap. I hope bey allows you guys to back it up. Lemonade ain’t trending nowhere. Formation fell off before it started. The gimmicks will be real this era.

      Why hasn’t any of Beyoncé’s albums sold 20 million copies at least if she’s a ”global superstar?”

    Haters are just salty, specially Sam. I queen Bey or Dawn Richards released something like this, everyone would be praising them.

    • Rihboy April 20, 2016

      Exactly! If bey did it it would be ground breaking. If dawn did it it would be artistic! When rih do it, the haters flock but still stream and watch which why she is top female viewed o. YouTube until this day ???. There are two sides to every person. And obviously Rihanna has been over being s good girl. She is probably the last a lister musician with no surgery done to her body that happens to be amazingly still in tact. For the drinking and smoking she does. But they hate because her demand is undeniable.

    It was absolutely magical!!! Breathtaking, serene, and majestic, indeed! I need her to be careful with the photos she posted of the music video to her IG, though. I can’t deal with IG suspending her account for nudity again.

    I’m tired of Sam acting like she can’t put out good music videos. The “We Found Love” video was nominated for a Grammy, but I’m sure he’ll still ignore that.

    Love the song. I get the concept of the video but it’s lacking something.

  50. Spoken Reason April 20, 2016

    I think the overall negative I’ve been seeing most people give the video is that is lacks a backstory. She looks great (as usual), but I felt there wasn’t any type of climax in the video. It needed one (no pun intended). Nice song, nonetheless. It’ll do well no matter the critique of the visual. My only wish is that she’d cover her b****** from time to time. It’s becoming predicable and somewhat annoying. This is the third visual she’s released where you can clearly see them. I got a mix of Pour It Up/BBHMM/Man Down after viewing it. *sigh* Happy 4/20, everyone!

    the f*cking bot sh*t. being ip blocked here. i don’t write that commenta a thousand times. it was bad anyway. now screw it. 😛

  52. RihYonce April 20, 2016

    Y’all need to be honest the video was boring. Point blank. Yes she looked beautiful. Yeah a video doesn’t need dancing & special affects to be interesting but still she could’ve did more. It was a good plot but the video should’ve been longer and more of s build up. The navy doesn’t want to face the fact that Rihanna visuals haven’t evolved since her last album & that’s a problem all the videos this era have been boring . Great single choices but these songs deserve better videos

    Rihanna is the Baddest Biitch. beyonce can’t compete with her, no matter what her delusional fans think. NM slays her new video just like Work slays formation.

    • Rihboy April 20, 2016

      Easily. Rihanna’s too busy portraying was woman her age. While Beyoncé is trying to prove to her adolescent following that she can still be as high school, I mean middle school as possible with the childish mediocrity she shows in her videos. I mean formation was just a try hard mess.

  56. Indie April 20, 2016

    Great video! Slick , stunning and street to the point! There’s something very s*** about strong women who don;t no ish! Love it!

  57. B_Roni April 20, 2016

    Well that as quick it jumped from 39 to 30 on iTunes. Lol it’s gonna probably be in the top 15 next week or at least top 20

  58. Nick Gallo April 20, 2016

    It’s really sad that you keep hating on such a successful artist in the game. You can never say anything nice which is really sad. Everytime she has something positive happen you bring a negative. If you do not like Rihanna why do you keep posting about her. For a great blog you sure know how to hate on certain artists.

  59. B2B April 20, 2016

    I am so mad at her. She screwed up the videos for the best songs on her cd. KIB and NM were suppose to be life, like I had the perfect visual in my head and she does this crap. Navy stupid af stanning for this mess. Rihanna please do not do a video for Yeah I said It unless Jake Nava is directing please; no shade.

  60. smile April 20, 2016

    I love her! I don’t know of any other artist that can go from rachet like this to classy lady on the red carpet and actually own it effortlessly. SLAY.

  61. LDN Chick April 20, 2016

    Boring. Can she do anything other than get her boobs out? I guess when everything else about you is crap that’s all you can do.

  62. Sherrele April 20, 2016

    Wtf video

  63. King Mark111 /.\ April 20, 2016

    I love the song because it’s very Aaliyah, but the videos for this era been boring. Sad because FourFive, BBHMM and American OXiChartedHigherThanFromation were great videos.

  64. Mariah April 20, 2016

    We all know my #Infinity video is better dahhlings #1toInfinity

  65. RealNegro April 20, 2016

    I love the song so I knew that I would love the video. Loving the visuals from this era.

  66. DIABETIC STROKE April 20, 2016

    As i mourn over the fact that Bey picked DJ Kalli (whom i cant stand annoying asf with that WE DA BEST we made it crap yet i LAUGH histarically at rih releasing this video so fast after flop it better. The desperation to sell this FLOP MIXTAPE Canti is REAL!!!! #460

  67. DIABETIC STROKE April 20, 2016

    The song is WEAK imo and the video is RUBBISH. when ever u try to hard its always a FAIL. rih needs to go watch Self titled videos from begining to end to even tell a visual story. The public has already seen gore in movies plenty why do we need it in a music video? Nudity as well, smoking as well the bad girl image is PLAYED. rih needs a new act/style. Since being edgy isnt working. Anymore.

  68. No favs, just here for the music April 20, 2016

    Too much ass titties and hoez for my liking. As a woman it feels like I’m one of few who actually gets uncomfortable watching this kind of crap. Although I’m sure it’s a dream for pervs to jack off to. Anyway the song is fire no doubt.

  69. FC/JC April 20, 2016

    This shitt was horrible!!!

  70. Coolness April 21, 2016

    My favorite thing about the video are the shots of her in the Seafoam green cover-up. Those scenes really bring out her eyes beautifully. Other than that, I think this video could’ve been much better. This is where the ambition of BBHMM would’ve sufficed.

  71. Tran uk anti bloper honioey love but it okay girl April 21, 2016

    Nice music video
