There’s still no official release date for Rihanna’s back-to-basics Loud album , and at this point, it’s entirely possible she will have shot a video for every single track before it actually sees the light of day.
Over the weekend, RiRi hit the streets of New York to film a clip for “What’s My Name?,” bringing the official video tally to three. She’s previously shot videos for “Only Girl in the World” (which she gave fans a sneak peek of this weekend) and “Who’s That Chick?,” which was directed by Jonas Åkerlund (though, according to Rihanna herself, is actually just a really fancy Doritos commercial).
“What’s My Name?” was reportedly directed by Philip Andelman (who’s helmed videos for the likes of Beyoncé, Maxwell and the Jonas Brothers), and based on some photos that started making the rounds on Sunday, it looks to be a fairly kinetic affair, with Rihanna — her hair still dyed bright red — strutting around NYC in a skin-tight striped outfit, clutching a pair of drumsticks and, at one point, dancing on a chain-link fence.
At the moment, those are the only details we’ve got about the clip; e-mails to Andelman’s reps were not returned by press time, and a spokesperson for Rihanna did not respond to MTV News’ request for comment on the video. Details on Loud are just as scarce, though, according to an Australian retailer, the album will be released in that country on November 12. And while there’s still no firm track list, producers like David Guetta and Sean Garrett have said they worked with Rihanna on the disc.
