Rihanna’s latest video is right on time.

“Cheers to the freakin’ weekend/ I’ll drink to that,” she sings on the hook. It’s party time, folks! And that’s exactly what the video makes apparent.

Behind the scenes footage of her LOUD tour and down time on the road is used here. Look out for shots of Rih-Rih in an elaborate getup while attending a festival, Kanye West and Jay-Z hitting the stage, Cee-Lo goofing off, and Avril Lavigne knocking back a drink. Must be nice having such a motley crew of friends.

Check out the clip after the jump.

So whether you’re planning on hitting the club tonight or prepping for Hurricane Irene, assuming you’re of legal drinking age, take of a shot for crazy times ahead. And do remember: “Don’t let the baaaaaast-ards getcha down.”
