Watch Rihanna's "Needed Me" video below!
In the clip, Rihanna shuffles between a gorgeous beachfront mansion and gritty strip club. The pop star totes a gun into the club and, upon finding the man who has presumably wronged her getting a lap dance, shoots him multiple times in the head.
Directed by Harmony Korine who is best known for his film work, including writing the cult favorite 1995 film Kids starring Chloë Sevigny, has previously directed music videos for other artists such as Sonic Youth, Cat Power and the Black Keys.
Soon after releasing Anti, Rihanna embarked on her Anti World Tour. The tour will run through early May in North America before she spends her summer in Europe.
Rihanna is a Barbadian singer and songwriter. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its then-president, hip-hop producer and rapper Jay Z. Rihanna's first two studio albums Music of the Sun (2005) and A Girl like Me (2006) charted on the top 10 of the U.S. Billboard 200 and respectively produced the singles "Pon de Replay" and "SOS".
She assumed creative control of her third studio album Good Girl Gone Bad (2007) and became a household name following the release of its international successful lead single "Umbrella". She followed it with five Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) platinum-certified albums, including the Grammy Award winning Unapologetic (2012) and her second Billboard 200 number-one album Anti (2016).
With sales exceeding 200 million records worldwide, Rihanna is one of the best-selling artists of all time. Rihanna is the youngest and fastest solo artist to earn fourteen number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and was named the Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s decade and the top Hot 100 artist of the 2010s decade by Billboard.
