Rihanna's "Only Girl (In The World)" Video Hits All The Right Red Buttons

Let's face it—Rihanna's had some dud singles and music videos. "Unfaithful," "Shut Up And Drive" and "Hard" all come to mind.

But something seems so right with the campaign for Loud, the Barbadian singer's upcoming fifth album (out November 16)—from the album cover to energetic Top 10 lead single "Only Girl (In The World)" and now said tune's video.

In fact, the only thing that's kind of tragic is that red hair. But we can overlook it, since this vid is so many shades of hotness.

I'm no Ri Ri loyalist by a long stretch. And far be it from me to rave about some dance-pop diva's latest four-minute visual strut fest. (Unless, of course, it's by the New Queen Of Soul Ke$ha.) But the Anthony Mandler-directed video for this jam is pretty effing rad. Maybe I'm just a sucker for a hot broad rolling around in flowers.

Consider me team "Only Girl (In The World)." Hope it becomes her 347th #1!
