VIDEO FAB: Rihanna’s “Cheers (Drink To That)”

Cheers to freakin’ weekend. Rihanna‘s kicking off this Hurricane Irene-filled weekend with her brand new video for “Cheers (Drink To That).”  A song we shocked ourselves by actually loving. And we’ve got the Bajan chick back in her home country cuttin’ up and having fun in the vid under the cut…

In the clip shot a few weeks ago while Ambassador of Tourism Rihanna vacayed back home in Barbados, you get to see the on stage and off stage antics of Rih and her besties during her LOUD tour.  There’s clips of her Barbados tour date and after party, the parade she was in, clips of her partying and performing with Kanye, Jay-Z, and Cee-Lo during earlier dates, and the beach fun and drinks her crew has been having.

Plus a skateboarding-in-the-pool cameo of singer Avril Lavigne as she’s actually one of the writers on this song.

It’s nothing but a party around these parts for the vid.  Not even mad at that.

Don’t let the bastards get you down…Turn it around with another round….There’s a party at the bar….Everybody put your glasses on…I’ll drink to that…
