    too bad I can’t see past the First 30 seconds…

  • P.Y.T

    Dedicated to chris brown….

  • jazi65

    She’s got another hit on her hands. And she gets xtra props for filming it in my favorite vacation location :blunt:

  • Daisy

    Love this song :dance:

    Video was ok wish her hair was styled differently

  • http://twitter.com/k_cicero Kezi

    I’m not a fan of this song, her voice doesn’t sound too good and I normally like her unique tone. The video on the other hand was really good. I like the fact that it told a story.

    Vero it was acting funny with me as well. I saw it here: put the w’s back in front plus . then directlyrics.com/rihanna–man-down-music-video-news and the . html. Should pop up.

  • Cinderella

    I like the song and video is ok but that hair is a :nono:

  • BlackBeauti

    Rihanna killed it with this one… All the blogs crashed and she set twitter on fire…. Favorite video thus far. That is why I love her. Her personality was all that in the video. Even haters giving her props.

  • xamaycan

    SMH I cant view past 30 seconds either!

  • xamaycan

    okay finally watched if after I googled it….good video…not what I thought it would be about…but props to rihanna for sending a message and bringing awareness to rape victims.

  • Eb

    :heart:

  • kharizmatik

    I :heart: this girl.

    I love this song. I didn’t know the song was about rape, I just thought she shot the guy just because.

  • GoldenGurl

    SAPASE!!

    I luuubs me some Rhi! :hug: Like the video and song (has substance). Jamaica is one of my fav spots. :blunt:

    The lyrics sort of reminded me of the song Bohemian Rhapsody when Lauren Hill was telling her mama she just killed a man.

    Rhi Rhi runs this mutha, Bey…

  • Trucie

    love the song. the song is supposed to be about breaking a mans heart, its not about rape but the visual really fits the song well. Either way, I’m satisfied with the effort.

    I was almost turned on til I realized she was gettin raped

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    This is my mom’s favorite Rihanna song. When we get in the car, she says, “play that Rihanna,” and I know she means “Man Down.” :yes:

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_hqwXZtBVc LUSCIOUS LOLITA AKA SUGA WALLS

    I meant I almost got turned on!

  • stellabella

    I loved it! You can’t deny this song!

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    Link fixed. :)

  • jaqyfine

    I hate all these videos that depict caribbean people as broke and homeless bushmen…
    And I want to personally thank Ri-ri for teaching me that if a man rapes me I should take a gun and “shoot him down in front of a big old crowd”.

  • Zoe B.

    Heavy video, very emotional

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y-TOnZHo-o CINNA

    Her hair annoyed me the ENTIRE video :/… BUT…since Ri promoting my island, cyaa too too complain! Decent vid!

  • Feline Feminine

    @Luscious

    Le sigh @ that gravie! :hunching:

  • vero

    @Kezi, thanks for the link
    @Sandra, thanks for fixing it

    i really like the video. and it changes from the funky weird ones she’s used to make… (i’m from the islands, maybe that’s why !)

  • Feline Feminine

    I really do like Rihanna…and I love this song…she looks beautiful in this vid…

    @Sandra, I play it alot in the car too!

  • http://www.howtobearealblackman.com Se7en Star

    This is garbage, and her voice sounds horrible. If this was a new artist then it wouldn’t get any love, nor airplay and you know it! This is why the music talent, artistry, quality, and industry has been on the decline for well over a decade now because the fans are more like personality worshipers than anything else. She sounds like a well trained rooster waking people up in the early morning and nothing more.

    When there is ONLY GARBAGE to choose from then, well, you can ONLY CHOOSE garbage and like it!

  • Fayla

    GM SR & Fam!!

    so kim kardashian IS preggo..SHOCKER..not :coffee:

  • Fayla

    as far as the vid goes, except for the rape scene & aftermath it was meh. she did project good emotion on-screen for that part, so props for that. & like the poster said above it’s getting old to only show the ghettos of JA. fiyah pon dem fe dat :shotsfired:

  • yvonne79

    Not a bad video at all……. :clap:

  • Fayla

    & I do really like this song (& that’s saying alot 4 me bc I don’t like her voice) however, when she does a song w/an island vibe, she shines imo..

  • GAGIRL87

    I’m not a big RiRi fan, I like her more so b/c of her fashion but I must say I like this song and the video is straight fire very creative… Good job RiRi…

  • Zoe B.

    Morning folks :coffee:

  • Kat

    As some others said, I didn’t like her hair but I do like the song and I enjoyed the video. :clap:

  • Tatted Diva

    :heart: this song & video! I was jamming to this in the car but now the video has made me love the video even more!

  • http://vimeo.com/17630990 LaTechGrad02

    Morning SR Fam. I’ll have to catch the video after work, boooo to my office.

  • Tatted Diva

    I mean the video has made me love the song even more! OOOOOPS!

    :newbie:

    Good Morning…how can i change my gravie ???? i logged into word press and my gravatar manager?

  • ThatsNic2u

    This song reminds me of the old Rhianna when she was singing “Murderer” It’s not what I thought it was going to be (thought they were taking extra time to do something very extravagant) but nonetheless it’s good.

  • bnatural

    I like the song and the video….I mean I’ve heard worse and seen worse.

    This is Rihanna’s zone….I liked this song the very first time I heard it…. :yes:

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_hqwXZtBVc LUSCIOUS LOLITA AKA SUGA WALLS

    GOOD MOANIN FAM!!!!!!

  • Fated4Greatness

    I didn’t know that Lauren Hill covered Bohemian Rhapsody. The original was performed by Queen, and it’s a classic!

  • caribcanadian

    I am not a Rihanna fan but this song is very good. I found that it suited her voice. I may be partial because I am Bajan descent and the islands vibe is part of my culture. I also liked Rude Boy except for the video…she’s too much about sex..It’s a turn off.

  • Bigbadwolf

    Good morning all!

    Luscious I am loving the gravi!

  • Fayla

    GM Luscious :waves:

  • Fayla

    It wasn’t Lauryn Hill that remade Bohemian Rhapsody. It was a 2 girl group called The Braids..

  • http://MSN Martinigal

    @ Jaqyfine: I agree a 100%….I hate videos that show jcan people as poor and hungry. And don’t forget the shacks as if they don’t live in decent houses.

    Anyway, I hope she doesn’t attempt to do reggae again, it’s not her genre.
