WATCH: Rihanna Channels a Familiar Look in ‘Sledgehammer’ Music Video After Partying with Drake
The ANTI singer belts out her latest single on a deserted planet in the project directed by Floria Sigismondi, who previously directed videos for David Bowie and Justin Timberlake. “Sledgehammer” was the first IMAX music video that premiered on Wednesday (June 30, 2016), before screenings of Legend of Tarzan. Rihanna’s billowing sarong is reminiscent of the clothing worn by Goku, the protagonist of the Dragon Ball franchise:
Rihanna was spotted partying with her rumored boo-thang, Drake, in the wee hours of Wednesday morning at London’s Tape Nightclub for Nicole Scherzinger’s 38th birthday blowout. New York Daily News reports that Rihanna and a friend left the party at 6 a.m. wearing a flowing, pink dress and strappy heels. Drake left with his entourage shortly after that.
