Rihanna's Stylish "You Da One" Video Is A Snatch-Grabbing Good Time

Now here, folks, is how you do it. When you've got a throwaway pop song like "You Da One" that, quite frankly, isn't really that good (even though a mint was probably paid to Dr. Luke for the production) — especially when compared to your previous single, the year's longest-running #1 hit and top tune on Chart Rigger's 10 Best Pop Singles Of 2011 list — you simply must produce a music video like this.

Crotches are grabbed numerous times. Femininity goes out the window. Smoke is blown. Bling is flashed. And Rihanna looks completely stunning.

I can see this being one of those ho-hum songs that actually gets a boost up the charts thanks to the decent video. (By comparison, quite the opposite happened with the Lady Gaga's excellent "Marry The Night" and its self-indulgent 13-minute WTF fest of a clip.)
