New Video: Kendrick Lamar & Rihanna – ‘LOYALTY’

Published: Friday 28th Jul 2017 by Sam

Kendrick Lamar just sprung a surprise on fans – the video for ‘LOYALTY’ featuring Rihanna.

The track has emerged as a fan favourite from his double Platinum ‘DAMN’ album and looks set to cement said status with the arrival of its cinematic visual.

Acclaimed director Dave Meyers takes the helm of the clip and delivers in earnest.

By no means a run of the mill collaboration, both K.Dot and RiRi commit to the narrative which casts them as lovers.

Check it out below…

The song doesn’t rouse us as much it perhaps should given the names in the equation. However, the video definitely delivers.

Once again, salute to Kendrick for upping the ante for rappers and artists today more broadly.

With ‘LOYALTY’ already #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, could this be the pair’s next respective chart topper?

    IT’S SO FUNNY HOW NICKI HAD ON THESE OVER THE TOP OUTFITS FOR THE FUTURE VIDEO & I DIDN’T CARE, BUT LOST IT WHEN I SEEN RIHANNA & HER OUTFITS WEREN’T DOIN’ TOO MUCH!!! NICKI NEEDS TO STOP SHOWCASING HER LOOKS ON INSTAGRAM IF IT’S FOR A VIDEO OR A PROJECT COMING UP! LET US GET OUR LIFE WHEN WE SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT, THEN POST THE PICURES ON SOCIAL MEDIA! MY BAD I MADE THIS ABOUT NICKI, BUT SHE NEEDS THIS TYPE OF CRITICISM INSTEAD OF HEARIN’ THE YES MANS SHE’S CLINGING ON TO!

    • Meme July 28, 2017

      I agree. Nicki kills all her anticipation. She said became quite the try hard/over kill

      • Tammah July 28, 2017

        TGJ Said It Best: “her managing to be everywhere but nowhere at the same time”. Im Not Hatin’ On Nicki Whatsoever! Right Now, She Needs Real Constructive Criticism From Her Fans,, Not Her Stans! Her Stans Are A Distraction!

      • Faf July 28, 2017

        Rihanna is 200 lbs she can’t fit anything s*** anymore

        Last year she was posting her titties out

      • Fancy BISH July 29, 2017

  11. U Wanna Bey Like Me July 28, 2017

    #1 in the making

  12. Ropeburn July 28, 2017

    Issa no from me. And he really needs to stop rapping through his damn nostrils. That shite sounds silly.

  13. BubblePopElectric July 29, 2017

    Wow! So many memorable moments. Rihanna looks so snatched!! I really enjoyed the original Bad Gyal in all of her beautiful, shady Thickanna glory. The video makes the song that much better (especially that brief PRIDE interlude). Dave Meyers and Kendrick are doing numbers together that we haven’t seen since his work with Missy in the early 2000’s! Kendrick and Bey are amongst the few in this generation of artists who consisitently deliver layers of meanings with their visuals but have it resonate in a way that even if you’re not woke enough to understand, you can still enjoy what’s on the surface. Kendrick is really in a lane all of his own and the only male rapper I can foresee someday receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the VMA’s.
