These past two days I have been hooked to Rihanna's latest single We Found Love. Best part for me, is no other than the amazing narration done by Agyness Deyn. The video starts off with Aggy’s sweet English accent describing a traumatic breakup before it delves into a drug-filled love crazy video of Rihanna and Chris Brown look-alike.
“It’s like you’re screaming but no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important, that without them, you feel like nothing. No one will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you. And when it’s over and it’s gone, you almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back so you can have the good.” Watch the video to hear the haunting monologue for yourself.
By surprisingly taking a dark look at love, it works brilliantly. This ranks right up there with some of Rihanna’s best videos. The storyline is fitting and gripping, Rihanna’s performance is convincing and the clip is very cinematic.
We found love in a hopeless place.
