Rihanna’s “Man Down” video is coming soon and director Anthony Mandler, who she’s worked with for the majority of her career, has nothing but good things to say about it. It looks like the duo will be shifting gears from their just-released “California King Bed” clip.
“We’ve done 16 videos together; they’re not all tough. ‘If I Never See Your Face Again,’ ‘Hate That I Love You,’ ‘Take a Bow’… Yeah, I mean, I’m known for the ‘Disturbia’s and the ‘Russian Roulette’s and things like that, but ‘Only Girl (In the World)’ is certainly an ethereal kind of empowering, beauty-filled video and what we’re coming with next … is certainly gonna flip people’s minds with ‘Man Down.'”
The reggae song tells a tale of a women seeking forgiveness after gunning down a man.
“We shot the video last month in Jamaica and it’s my favorite song she’s ever recorded, so I was really excited to get involved,” he said. “And it’s just one of those songs that demands a strong narrative and visual, and let’s just say she let me go all the way. So I think you can expect something that’s dramatic and shocking and intense and emotional and uplifting and enlightening.”
“Without saying too much, if you’re looking for a narrative you’re not going to be disappointed. Just know that it’s going to be exciting.”
