A sneak peak from the "Umbrella" singer and the funk-rock band's music video for the upcoming single has been leaked on the net.
After the audio from Rihanna and Maroon 5's collaboration on the band's remake single "If I Never See Your Face Again" was leaked on the Internet, now a sneak peak for the video can be seen as well. The teaser video sees behind the scene footages of the video shoot.
The clip itself was shot in Los Angeles in late April and directed by Anthony Mandler. Meanwhile, as for the single, it is planned to be included in both artists' upcoming repackaged albums, Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" and Maroon's "It won't Be Soon Before Long". The band's re-release album hasn't had its release date but the R 'n' B singer has already set June 17 for its re-release.
Previously, both Rihanna and Maroon have also made comments about their collaboration. Expressing her excitement working with the band, Rihanna said "This is the only collaboration on my re-release, because I always wanted to work with Maroon 5. They're one of my favorite bands. When they called me to do this record with them, I was so honored."
The band also stated their reason they want to remake the song with Rihanna, stating, "The song was basically done, but we wanted to try something different, so we had her come in and do bits and pieces."
