Rihanna Unfolds The Good And The Bad Of The American Dream In 'American Oxygen'
The visuals for Rihanna's 'American Oxygen' depict the struggles of minorities pursuing the storied American dream.
Rihanna is all about that American pride.
After giving us all the BadGalRiRi raunchiness we love on her latest single "Bitch Better Have My Money," the Bajan beauty shows her versatility with “American Oxygen.” She released both the single and the shiny new video on TIDAL.
RiRi’s socially charged new video gave us something to feel connected to, capturing the recent Mike Brown protests, 9/11 footage, the work of civil right leaders and even the children of our future. In between singing against the American flag, Rihanna depicts the fight and struggle we face to achieve the American dream, while still raising hope for the future. “This is the new America," she sings. "We are the new America.”
The Darren Craig—directed video inserts historical and heartbreaking moments in American history that reflects the countries resiliency. Take a look at the video below or watch it on TIDAL.
