Rihanna’s New Single ‘Pour It Up’ Is as Racy as You’d Imagine [Video]

On Wednesday Rihanna released her new aunchy video ‘Pour It Up’, where the 25-year-old singer plays both a tycoon and a stripper.

Miley Cyrus’ VMA twerking is just a child’s play, in comparison to Rihanna’s extravagant new video for “Pour It Up”, where the 25-year-old pushes the limits yet again, pole dancing pole in some of her skimpiest outfits to date.

The new video, co-directed by the singer herself, was presented to the world after days of super sexy sneak peaks at behind-the-scenes pole dancing classes and stripper audition videos.

The visuals are about what you’d expect – one of the world’s biggest pop stars trying her hand at playing both stripper and bankroller, a twist on the agency dynamics typically involved in the customer-stripper exchange.

In characteristically provocative fashion, RiRi spends the majority of her latest clip wearing very little in the way of clothing. Instead of, say, a seasonably sensible turtleneck-and-trousers ensemble, she’s found on her throne clad in a skimpy, bejeweled outfit, along with strategically placed (read: on her crotch) dollar bills.

In the video the Queen of Pop takes her rightful place on an elaborate golden throne, sitting in the middle of a body of water, with a wavy image projected behind her.

The 25-year-old pulls a number of over-the-top positions throughout the clip, at one point straddling the chair as she sings upside down to the camera.

A long brown fur coat is draped loosely around RiRi’s forearms, doing nothing to cover the jewelled bra barely covering her modesty, similar to those worn by Brazilian carnival dancers – of which Rihanna is a big fan.

Tiny denim cut-off shorts and long black gloves with red fingernails and plenty of sparkling rings complete the sexy, mismatched look, while she is once again clad in her favourite new short white curled wig, says the Daily Mail.

It appears she’s also attempting to steal Miley Cyrus’ twerking thunder, showing off a few outrageously bold moves that even a lot of her fans will be shocked to see.

The Bajan singer was given a few tips on how to seductively pole dance by Nicole and she Instagrammed a series of photos from her first lesson with Nicole ahead of releasing the video.

“My first pole lesson! #pouritup #bts,” she proudly captioned one pic. Spoiler alert: She’s a natural!

However, pole dancing isn’t something that came naturally to Nicole, -the personal trainer and pole dancing instructor who auditioned for the chance to be in the video, with her saying in the past: “Pole Dancing is a Powerful Movement and I absolutely love how empowered & confident my clients feel after their first class.

“Pole Dancing is no longer a hidden art form. We’re taking it out of the strip clubs and bringing it to the average woman in a classier, sexier, and intimate environment where any woman can feel comfortable with herself.”

The 25-year-old singer began treating her millions of followers to a number of sizzling behind the scenes snaps from her latest music video on Saturday – though clearly she was far from finished.

Rihanna also costars in the video for A$AP Rocky’s “Fashion Killa,” which was released last week. Her latest album, Unapologetic, came out last year, reports the Rolling Stone.
