Rihanna has debuted the new video for “Goodnight Gotham,” which is actually a throwback to 2014 when she made headlines for being swarmed by a mass of fans in Paris and crowd-surfing in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
The short video for the ANTI bonus track, which clocks in at just over a minute, shows the singer running across Trocadero Square at night and shedding a fur coat before being embraced by a screaming crowd, who lifts her onto their shoulders. At the time, nobody was sure what project the stunt was being filmed for. Hardly the first time Rihanna has been spotted in front the Eiffel Tower, she also took time to pose for pictures with fans in front of the famous landmark in 2013.
The video dropped only hours before Rihanna is set to perform at Paris’ Stade de France as part of her ANTI world tour. Hopefully fans know better than get caught playing Pokémon Go at that show following last week’s report that Rihanna is decidedly not here for the game. “I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends,” she told fans mid-show at a recent show. “I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch.”
It has been a big few weeks for the 28-year-old singer. Earlier this month, it was revealed that she’ll be playing an iconic character on the final season of Bates Motel, as well as an alien stripper in a new science fiction flick by the director of The Fifth Element. Before that, she debuted a Star Trek-themed video for the Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack for her song “Sledgehammer.”
