Rihanna - If It's Lovin' That You Want: Wikipedia Album Entry

!!!!First of all...ITS NOT NEW AT ALL!!!!
"If It's Lovin' That You Want" is a song written by Samuel Barnes Scott LaRock, Makeba Riddick, Alexsander Mosely, Jean-Claude Oliver and Lawrence Parker for R&B singer Rihanna's debut album, Music of the Sun (2005). It was released on November 28, 2005 as the album's second and final single.
It was released as the album's second single after "Pon de Replay" and peaked at number thirty-six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. 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.
