Rihanna is the "Only Girl (In the World)" in her newly-debuted music video. She is all alone, frolicking in the desert full of colorful flowers. Ditching her dark image from "Rated R", she is all smiles throughout the clip, singing and dancing through the hills and swinging high above the field.

Of the stunt which has her suspended in the air, the 22-year-old singer previously told Just Jared, "It was crazy. They held me up on a crane, suspended in the air on top of a hill, over a cliff. We just swung back and forth. It was really scary but it was fun."

The music video was premiered on Wednesday, October 13 at 7:56 P.M. ET on MTV and at 8 P.M. ET on AOL. The next video which is expected to come out after "Only Girl (In the World)" clip is the one which was shot for "What's My Name?". While the "Only Girl" took place in an empty field, this upcoming one was filmed among the crowd.

She shared to This Is Max Online in another interview, "I just took a shot of a cocktail just before the video, then I went on the street and did my thing, there were a lot of people watching so many cameras everywhere. I had to get in my own zone and do my thing."

Both "Only Girl (In the World)" and "What's My Name?" are recorded for Rihanna's November 16 release "Loud". The latter single features additional verses from Drake in its official remix version and possibly will have another clip with the Canadian rapper making a cameo.

I feel sorry for haters... That can't feel good. I love loving. It feels great!!! I love my life!!! :D You should try loving more. Trust me it feels better and then you look hotter cos you're not walking around with your screwed up negative faces, dripping of hate allover the place. You'll only attract like-minded people and contaminate eachother with your grotesque hatred. Yum!...No really ;)

I don't hate her or love her. She's boring and for sure can't sing or dance. It's called show business.

She is the hardest working woman in show biz. I am proud of her.

@tracy I've been to Barbados multiple times and many other Carribean Islands. No one likes her there. They refer to her as the 'frog sounding singer'. The BAJAN PEOPLE take offense to her not even going back there and doing some good for their tiny little island. Not trying to say that it's a bad thing to walk in dirt roads... Just saying she should go back and walk in those dirt roads to remember who she is and where she came from. Believe me, I saw how she acted at a club while I was down there. She acts like she's superior to everyone.

She sucks. So over her trying to milk her 15 minutes of fame. Like seriously, go away so that we miss you. And most likely, we won't.

Girl can't sing.

I'd like to her actually dance instead of prancing around like some kind of show horse. Someone tell her to go back to Barbados where she used to walk barefoot on dirt roads.
