We called it when we first heard the lyrics!
We just knew that, for her next video, Rihanna would push the envelope. After all, she was singing about being attracted to another woman.
Te amo, te amo,” she says to me / I hear the pain in her voice / Then we danced underneath the candlebra / she takes the lead / That’s when I saw it in her eyes / It’s over.
Then she said “Te amo” / then she put her hand around me waist / I told her “No” / She cried “Te amo” / I told her “I’m not gonna run away, but let me go” / My soul has arrived / Without asking why / I said “Te amo” / Wish somebody would tell me what she said / Don’t it mean “I love you.”
She even chose French Victoria’s Secret model Laetitia Casta to be her leading lady.
Directed by Anthony Mandler, “Te Amo” was shot in Paris; some scenes outside the 15th century Château de Vigny.
