Nudity, violence, language -- the video for Riri's new track "Bitch Better Have My Money" was never going to be light-hearted, but even the superstars fans are none too impressed with her latest, gory offering.

Nudity, violence, language -- the video for Riri's new track "B*tch Better Have My Money" was never going to be light-hearted, but even some fans are none too impressed with her latest, gory offering.

Rihanna teased the release of the hotly-anticipated video for BBHMM in a minute-long trailer at the BET Awards last week, and now the whole blood-spattered thing has hit the web.

The video (or short film?) begins with shots of a well-to-do woman readying herself to leave the house. She meets Rihanna, standing next to a massive suitcase in the elevator. When the lift opens again, she's gone -- and Rihanna is left dragging a what seems like a much heavier suitcase.

The rest of the seven-minute long saga sees Rihanna, and two other  pretty intimidating women, terrorising their hostage - who is naked a fair portion of the time.

The video also features Hannibal's Mads Mikkelsen as the "b*tch accountant", and Eric Roberts as a clueless, leering sheriff. As far as reception goes, the video has either been applauded or slammed. "The clip's a bit of a hot mess," Jamieson Cox writes for The Verge. "It's visually and narratively incoherent. " On the other hand, Hollywood Life's Casey Mink just cant get enough. "The video, like the song itself, is ridiculously awesome and will have you feeling all kinds of empowered.," she writes. "Watch it immediately!" The social media reaction has been polarised too.

Whatever your take on it, the beauty from Barbados is clearly doing something right. She's just been named the bestselling digital singles artist of all time.

Please note that the video is extremely explicit, and should not be watched by sensitive viewers. Click here to watch it.
