Rihanna is planning to turn up the heat in her latest music video for the lead single “S&M” from her new album, according to new photos from the clip. The singer channels a Playboy bunny and sports a barely there latex wardrobe.
Veteran Rihanna collaborator, Melina Matsoukas, who directed the singer’s video clips for “Rudeboy,” “Rockstar 101” and “Hard.”
The 22-year-old shifts from rabbit ears, a white corset and black high heels, to a bright pink PVC dress by William Wilde.
In another photo she holds an ice cream cone and weas a heart-shaped eye patch.

The lyrics of the song leave little question what the S&M is all about.
“I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it
“Sex in the air, I love the smell of it,
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me!”
Rihanna gave the shoot a thumbs up. “[I] had a fantastic weekend shooting my best/favorite video EVER!” she tweeted.
Matsoukas added: “Recovering from a colourful wknd of S&M with a hot red headed chick and I get to call that work… I love this job.”
“S&M” is one of two new Rihanna videos. She also appears with Nicki Minaj on the rapper’s next single, “Fly,” according to MTV.
Rihanna’s song will be released on January 25.
