It isn't often that a video lives up to its hype, and in this case, controversy, but dare we say Rihanna's "We Found Love" does.
The singer's ode to falling hard in "a hopeless place" has an upbeat dance groove that may distract from what she's trying to convey, but the video carries the message well.
"We Found Love," which tells the story of two lovers who are enamored with each other but who seem to be in a trainwreck of a relationship, has been hailed as a cross between "Trainspotting" and "Requiem for a Dream." And yes, some have mentioned how if you squint, model/boxer Dudley O'Shaughnessy might remind you of Rihanna's ex Chris Brown.
