Rihanna Closes Out BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend
With around 100,000 screaming fans packing the Hackney Marshes venue, the Barbadian beauty strutted into the spotlight while clad in a leather jacket with gold embellishments before stripping down to a tiger print t-shirt and black hotpants after finishing up her opening song, "Only Girl In The World".
Keeping a high energy atmosphere throughout, RiRi proceeded to crank out hit after hit including a lineup consisting of "Rude Boy", "S&M", "Hard" and "Don't Stop the Music" - while at one point telling the throng of spectators, "Hackney, you're crazier than they told me!"
Nearing the end of the UK concert, the 24-year-old eased into her hit collaboration "Run This Town" (which she performed with Jay Z during his Saturday set) and, low and behold, HOVA returned the favor as he walked alongside Rihanna - then staying alongside to help out with renditions of "Talk That Talk" and "Umbrella" before making his exit so that Rihanna could close things out with her chart-topping single "We Found Love".
