Rihanna’s “Needed Me” video, directed by Harmony Korine, makes Billboard’s Best Music Videos list at number 10.

Here we are, reaching the end of disaster-year 2016. Here to remind us it wasn’t all bad, Billboard has published its list of 10 Best Music Videos of 2016. Hey, there are some find videos on this list. Some of our favorites, actually. So let’s join them in the countdown. First up, at number 10 is Rihanna’s “Needed Me” video.

For those whining that music videos have lost their art, we have Harmony Korine directing. The director of Gummo, the writer of Kids, collaborator with Bjork, Korine gives us Rihanna looking tough and amazing.

From Billboard:

10. Rihanna, “Needed Me”

Ignoring Battleship, Rihanna’s Harmony Korine-directed “Needed Me” video makes the case that the (obscenely photogenic) superstar deserves a starring role in an action-thriller at some point. The cinematic clip is a slow build to Rihanna’s execution-style shooting of a dude making it rain in a strip club in the finale. At the very least, she better make an appearance in a James Bond movie in the near future.
