Rihanna has just released a brand new video for "We Found Love"! It's the first single from her upcoming album "Talk That Talk". Guys put down the glow sticks, this song just got so much more intense! I'm sure this song is definitely gonna be one of the top songs of 2011 and this video... damn!

The video is so intense and emotional.. just a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
