Is This the Closest Thing We’ll Get to a ‘Love on the Brain’ Video From Rihanna?
Sure, Rihanna's a lil' bit busy at the moment putting in work (work, work, work) as an actress, what with Bates Motel and Valerian and Ocean's Eight and all. But, lest the Navy Commander forget, she's still a pop queen at heart — and she only just notched yet another Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week with her Motown-y Anti power ballad, "Love On The Brain," which still, somehow, doesn't have a music video.
As of a few weeks ago during her Paper shoot in Manhattan, Rih cryptically responded to a paparazzo's inquiry about the music video with: "...I hope so." So, no dice.
Today (March 29), however, an official music video has arrived — in the form of a remix by Don Diablo on his own channel. And no, Rihanna's not featured in the actual video.
"ShoutOut to RiRi for letting me remix this one! We did this video to celebrate over 10.000.000 streams on my remix!" the DJ wrote. A huge accomplishment, to be sure — but still a damn tease for the ever-hopeful, ever-parched Navy.
The song, which was initially released as a single all the way back in September of 2016, still has plenty of life at radio and in the clubs, so it's not an impossible dream. For now, at least, there's this official-adjacent music video to pass the time.
Just hop on Instagram Live again and lip-sync for your life to the track just once, Rih. We'll take it.
