Rihanna - Only Girl (In the World) Video Wiki

"Only Girl (In the World)" is a song by Barbadian singer Rihanna from her fifth album, Loud (2010). The album's lead single, it was released on September 10, 2010. Crystal Johnson wrote the song in collaboration with producers Stargate and Sandy Vee. Rihanna contacted Stargate before Loud's production and asked them to create lively, uptempo music. "Only Girl (In the World)" was the first song composed for the album, and the singer decided to include it on the track list before she recorded her vocals. Backed by strong bass and synthesizer, it is a dance-pop song that has an electronic composition. In its lyrics, Rihanna demands physical attention from her lover. Critical response to "Only Girl (In the World)" was positive; a number of critics praised its composition and Rihanna's decision to move away from the dark themes of her previous album, Rated R (2009). The song reached number one on the United States' Billboard Hot 100 chart two weeks after Loud's second single, "What's My Name?", peaked at number one. It was the first time in the chart's history that an album's lead single reached number one after its second single. In the United Kingdom the song spent two weeks at number one and is the nineteenth-bestselling single of all time by a female artist, with over a million copies sold. The song peaked at number one in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Ireland, and reached the top five in France, Germany and Switzerland. Rihanna performed "Only Girl (In the World)" on Saturday Night Live in the United States, The X Factor in the United Kingdom and a shortened version at the 31st Brit Awards. Anthony Mandler directed the song's music video, in which Rihanna is alone in an open natural landscape. The video suggests that she is the only female in the world, echoing the song's title and lyrics, and critics praised its bright, colorful theme. "Only Girl (In the World)" won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in 2011..

    Katy Perry?! Rihanna, stick with GaGa, follow her footsteps or you'll be as famous as Nicki Minaj. ( she's 26th or 25th ) And while I think it's lovely and Rihanna's so happy, you're not Katy Perry so stick to your own genre.
  • So good!

    How does it not match the song?? She's in her own world with no one else around, having fun and enjoying herself. Is that not what the song says? You people epically fail. Also it's funny how no matter what an artist does they get hated on. If it's too over the top "it's lady gaga copy rage" but then if it's simple but visually appealing, it gets hated still. Society just fails so hardcore.
