We’ve already seen the super-sexy photos for Rihanna‘s long-awaited “Pour It Up” video, but the singer has just released new behind-the-scenes video footage. The sophisticated/ratchet (sophistaratchet?) clip highlights the artistry of strippers, as exotic dancers like Nicole “The Pole” Williams, Candace Cane and Secret Moneii (whose booty is about the size of Barbados) show their skills on the pole. Rihanna reveals that she co-directed the video and even took a little spin on the pole herself.
The clip’s pièce de résistance is when the strippers drop it like it’s hot and do splits in a pool of water: “I bet you never seen bitches twerk on water. My bitches twerk on water. No basic zone, no basics,” Rihanna joked.
