The scenes which resemble Solve's 2008 photographic vision are the ones which feature Riri writhing her body under the shadows of unique patterns of stripes and dots.

Rihanna finds herself in hot water yet again. Soon after her music video for latest single "You Da One" hit the web, people were quick to notice that some scenes in the Melina Matsoukas-directed clip bear resemblance to a work done by famed fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo.

The scenes in question are the ones which feature Riri rocking a bowl haircut and wearing a flesh colored bodysuit. Shadows of stripes and dots form unique patterns across her skin while she's writhing on the floor. The visuals are identical to a nude photo shoot Solve did for "Numero 93" in 2008.

Filmed in London, "You Da One" video itself sees Riri undergoing a number of transformations from being a tomboy girl in an overall to being a seductress in a bra, thong and fishnet outfit. One scene which shows her strutting her stuff in front of a bright pink wall is inspired by the 1971 film "A Clockwork Orange".

Both Riri and Melina haven't responded to the plagiarism claim. Instead, the Bajan beauty continued to hype up the video on her Twitter. She gave update on how many views the clip collected on YouTube by retweeting her fans' messages. "#YouDaOne video was released a day ago and already has nearly 4 million views," she posted before adding hours later, " 'You Da One' video has 7,060,407 views."

This is, though, not the only copycat case the longtime collaborators faced. Earlier this year, the Barbados singer was sued by photographer David LaChapelle for allegedly stealing his work and used it without his consent in "S&M" clip, which is also directed by Melina. The lawsuit was settled outside the court, but details of the settlement remained undisclosed.

Somebody on this website hates Rhianna and love Dutch Magazines. How is this stealing? How many music videos directly copy black an white Man Ray photos? How many copy famous movies- including Scarface, Wizard of Oz and more? How many videos have Marilyn MOnroe looks from head to toe (Madonna?) "Stealing"? Yea, why don't you just call her a n-word too?
