Rihanna Gets Political In New Video With Ferguson Footage
16 April 2015
Now, Rihanna has reminded fans of the troubled times in America with a politically-charged new promo, which was released on her mentor Jay Z’s new streaming site, Tidal, on Thursday (16Apr15).
The video also features footage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and other civil rights-related demonstrations and events.
The images fit the theme of the song – last week (ends10Apr15) co-writer Sam Harris told Billboard.com, “There’s a lot of turmoil going on in this country right now… This country is great and has the potential to be something really, really incredible, but there are a lot of problems that we don’t acknowledge and it’s important to shed light on both those things.”
Missouri National Guard called Ferguson protesters ‘enemy forces’: here.
