Rihanna: ‘Run This Town’ Music Video Revealed!

Peep the new “Run This Town” music video from Rihanna, Kanye West and Jay-Z.

“The song is about evolution and the progress,” Jay has said. “You start out as a new artist and you make your way into the game. You climb that mountain and you get to the top and you put your flag down. This is us putting our flag down. This is Roc Nation. Pledge your allegiance. You’ve got to put your flag at the top of the mountain and say we run this town.”

The trio will perform this song on NBC’s The Jay Leno Show on September 14. They are also rumored to perform a day before at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards also in New York City.

# 1

who watches music video nowadays?

but the video looks ok

# 2

The ending is so silly. They look foolish.

# 3

Rihanna sings all her songs the same.

# 4

I saw this last night. Are they supposed to be scary or something?

# 5

I like the part when rihanna sings,just that

# 6

too tired to watch

# 7

I don’t really care for said artists but for some reason I LOVE this song and video. Let me repeat…HATE rap but love this song.

# 8

I wish she’d go sit down somewhere. I can’t stand her voice and Im disappointed that she will be back bleeding my ears on the radio.

# 9

if rihanna can’t act in a music video what to say about a movie goodness

That was lame.

Rihanna is beautiful!

ITA with # 4 – all her songs do sound the SAME.

lol you posted the on smash version. cool either way. seen it last night. the editing ruins this for me.

Don’t care for the Rihanna parts, but Kanye is not bad here.

I cant take it, this is terrible! Rihanna has killed the eardrums. I’m sorry but the video sucks big time and Rihanna trying to dance is worst than ever. She still cant dance or sing, nothing never changes with her. The only thing people are going to say is she looks cute and please dont go there!

Kanye should sue J for this one here..

I’m not feeling thesong

lol @ hey…no way no freaking movie.

and lol mike…naw she does have some (rare) different songs, but the biggest thing about her is that she doesn’t have that range. like they got her formula and that was it…because it sells and people still buy it without asking why they are buying her record especially if she sounds the same in all of them.

dundies, don’t watch this video tired. i did that last night and i almost wanted to find a bridge and jump. the editing and camera makes your eyes move everywhere and that is no torture you should ednure on a sluggish brain. i’m going to give this video a try on a better day and see what i think of it. it looks like lots of other videos i’ve seen. originality is so dead in this era.

I sense some racial undertones to this music video! If they didn’t try to make this look like some sort of black panther party then it sure is a wierd coincidence!

Every time I hear a Rihanna song, it always sounds like she’s starting to sing Umbrella. She needs to mix up her intonation a bit.

I love the hip hop old skool sound! I guess Beyonce wants to kick Rihanna’s ass like she did in “Obsessed”. But why does Jay-Z always have to use somebody on his record when he comes out of retirement ? I think KANYE was not needed.

Not bad. It’d be better if Rihanna wasn’t involved but she seems to be their video ho du jour.

uh what racial undertones…yeah ti’s hurt was racial undertones, chris brown’s gimme that was racial undertones, tupac and dre’s california was racial undertones, and i know busta has another one of these dumb looking videos with a big mob group of people and i bet that was racial undertones. it has nothing to do with the black panthers lol. they not that smart to make that kind of link, even subliminaly in the video direction or lyrics. it probably has more to do with all those artists being pissed off and being top memebers of roc nation. anyways doesn’t rihanna’s disturbia video have the same kinda video treatment. and there’s always fire in a jay z video. i’m surprised this time they didn’t shoot it in a grage, or had some kind of old style godfather look to it. ugh. yeah no one watches video nowadays so they should stop trying to be creative.

Rihanna is so ***** lame. Girl cannot sing. Jay-Z, Kanye and GaGa really need to collaborate right now. The three of them together would be on fire!

this is not an old skool record…and yeah ye was invovled, like always. why’s yeezy not needed. his ego and jay-z’s clash and work well together. they make good records.

Why did they dress Rihanna up like a tranny?
All the hype for this?
Disappointed.
Jay can do better.
