Rihanna, Once Again, Makes a Case for Sheer Shirts in the ‘Kiss It Better’ Video

Rihanna's Kiss It Better music video premiered at noon today, after the singer teased it for a full day on her Instagram account. Among other things, the black-and-white video asserts Rihanna's longstanding position as the Sovereign of Sheer Clothing, which really peaked with the Adam Selman dress she wore to the 2014 CFDA awards.

It starts with Rih writhing around under a see-through sheet (with strategically placed dice), and ends with several shots of her in a thin, lingerie-style camisole, nipple piercings on full display.

This is the second single from ANTI, but technically the third music video to come from the album. Rihanna released two videos for Work back in February, co-starring Drake. In the first, she's wearing a fishnet Tommy Hilfiger dress (which is see-through by default), and in the second, another sheer top. Which means that come May, everyone on the planet will have their nipples out.
