The Barbadian singer emerges from a swamp and dances in the desert in the video for her fifth single off her "Talk That Talk" album.

“I’ve been everywhere, man/Looking for someone” begin the lyrics for Rihanna’s latest single, “Where Have You Been.”

The video for the fifth single off of her Talk That Talk album takes the petite Barbadian singer “everywhere,” it seems, from swamps to deserts to the jungle.

The video, directed by Dave Meyers, opens with Rihanna emerging from a swamp like a mermaid. The clip then moves to the desert, with the singer dancing with a group of shirtless men. She then moves to a dessert hut, which is furnished with plenty of animal prints.

And what’s better than one Rihanna? Eight Rihannas. Halfway through the video, computer-generated imagery creates a kaleidoscope effect, with several images of the singer pulsating on the screen at the same time.
