It had more success on a worldwide scale, reaching the top five in Poland and Slovakia, the top ten in Australia and New Zealand and number eleven on the UK Singles Chart; it also became her first number-one crossover hit in the Philippines. "If It's Lovin That You Want" was the second and last single released from Music of the Sun.The song has sold 500,000 paid digital downloads in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
The music video for the song was shot on a stretch of beach on the coast of California by director Marcus Raboy, and the dancing was choreographed by Fatima Robinson. Rihanna stated that the video "is about having fun, giving off the vibe of the Caribbean", and that "I'm just [performing] to the camera as if it were my boyfriend. [...] It's going to be incredible." Scenes of the video show a bonfire, belly dancing and Rihanna on a jet ski, which she had to learn how to ride. On TRL Poland, it was retired from the countdown after fifty days. With music video guest Lance Gross.
