Rihanna Feat. Drake - What's My Name

Song Info:

"What's My Name?" is a song performed by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna, taken from her fifth studio album Loud (2010). Featuring guest vocals from Canadian rapper Drake, the song was released as the second single from Loud on October 29, 2010 through Def Jam Recordings (Universal Music). The R&B song was produced by Norwegian production duo StarGate, and written by the duo along with Ester Dean, Traci Hale and Drake. "What's My Name?" impacted on Mainstream and Rhythmic radio stations in the United States from October 26, 2010.

Critics praised the song as some of Rihanna's best vocal work to date, for the romantic nature of the song and its sexual tones. There was some negative criticism towards Drake's lyrics which included a sexual innuendo about the square root of 69. The single was a commercial success, topping the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 giving Rihanna her third number one single of 2010 (out of four), as well as her eighth of nine Hot 100 chart topper. It also became Drake's first ever number one single. "What's My Name?" was also particularly successful reaching the top five in France, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland and the United Kingdom.

An accompanying music video, directed by Philip Andelman, incorporates a romantic encounter between Rihanna and Drake in a grocery store along with romantic scenes between the pair and Rihanna walking through Manhattan's Lower East Side. "What's My Name?" was also promoted with live performances across both sides of the Atlantic, including Saturday Night Live in America and the series seven finale of The X Factor in the United Kingdom, though the latter performance resulted in an investigation from the British media regulator (Ofcom) for the raunchy nature of Rihanna's outfit.

Music Video Info:

Rihanna shot the music video for the song on September 26, 2010 in New York City with director Philip Andelman.[26] Parts of the video shot with Drake were filmed on October 27, 2010.[27] The music video premiered on November 12, 2010 on Rihanna's VEVO channel on YouTube.[28]

The video starts with different views from the city, then shifts to a store where Drake is speaking to the cashier. Rihanna enters, grabbing his attention. She smiles at him and walks towards a fridge and grabs a milk package. Drake follows her and his verse begins. He holds her hand as he raps his verse, the milk package falls from her hand as she holds his, thus spilling milk on the floor. When Drake's verse is over, Rihanna pushes him and walks away with a smile.

When Rihanna's verse starts, she is shown walking on the street and dancing. Views of people holding instruments and walking on the street are shown, in addition to scenes where Rihanna and Drake are in a bedroom together, flirting, talking and drinking champagne. The final scene shows Rihanna in an outdoor Reggae-inspired night party with the people previously shown are now playing instruments as Rihanna sings and dances. The video ends with Drake kissing Rihanna on her cheek in the bedroom. Some of the performers walking with instruments and seen later in the video performing with Rihanna while she sings were Seth Faulk, NYC sideman and drummer in The Nightmare River Band, who carried and later played the maple snare drum; LeeAnet Noble, of the hit show "STOMP" NYC, who carried and later played the djembe; and William B Johnson, of "Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk!," who played buckets.
