Rihanna official music video for the song ‘Only Girl In The World’. ‘Only Girl In The World’ is a song performed by Rihanna. Barbadian recording artist Rihanna shows her fondness for up-tempo dance Europop music in her song ‘Only Girl In The World’, the lead official single to be released from Rihanna’s fifth studio album Loud (2010). The song received positive reviews from the critics who lauded its up-beat style, indicating a move away from the darker themes which characterised the previous album ‘Rated R’ by the Barbados-born starlet, which was released in 2009. The official music video for Only Girl In The World’, directed by "Take a Bow", "Disturbia", "Rehab" and "Russian Roulette" video director Anthony Mandler, depicts a carefree Rihanna frolicking around in surreal landscapes filled with colour and floating orbs. Rihanna explained the filming of the video and the video's simplistic theme, "It's really, really beautifully shot in these crazy, crazy, crazy places, We shot landscapes that we found a couple hours outside of L.A. It looks so unreal. It looks fake, like something out of a postcard with the beautiful hills…”The song has been covered by Katy Perry and British X-Factor contestants One Direction. ‘Only Girl In The World’ features alongside many hit singles on Rihanna’s 5th studio album ‘Loud’ which also contains the hit tracks "What's My Name?" (featuring Drake), "Raining Men" (featuring fellow R&B icon Nicki Minaj), "California King Bed" and "Man Down". Rihanna references Beyoncé, Madonna and Whitney Houston as major influences on her sound along with diverse influences such as Bob Marley, Destiny’s Child and Alicia Keys. Rihanna draws musical influences from a divers range of styles including electro-pop, rock, reggae, ska, R&B and pop.
