Avril Lavigne, whose vocals from “I’m With You” were sampled for the “yeah, yeah” in the song, makes a cameo in the video. Kanye West and Jay-Z also appear in the video performing with Rihanna on stage.
“Life’s too short to be sitting around miserable/ People gonna talk whether you doing bad or good, yeah” go the lyrics.

Many aspects of Rihanna’s life are shows in the video for “Cheers,” which is off her 2010 Loud album. She has numerous costume changed for her concert clips, and in one scene Rihanna is on a vacation while a gang of paparazzi hover nearby, their cameras clicking.
The singer can also be seen raising a glad to her audience, probably thanking them for their support with her own personal “cheers.”
Rihanna is set to debut her music video for "Fly" with Nicki Minaj during the pre-show for Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards.
