The Daily Grind Video

Rihanna took a “Man Down” in her latest video. Red hot Rihanna’s song “Man Down” had a reggae flare, which gave the Caribbean singer the idea to film the video in Jamaica.

BEHIND THE SCENES: Rihanna “Man Down” Video

Rihanna headed deep into Jamaica and shot her “Man Down” video in some of the most remote towns and locations on the island. Rihanna has previously shot Caribbean-like videos for her hit songs “Pon De Replay” and “If It’s Loving That You Want,” which both mirrored the tropics of Jamaica, but both videos were shot on sandy U.S. beaches.
