Rihanna is very cool, and it's really all about her attitude and her swag, so make sure you bring that when you learn this choreo.

Ava: Okay, so the first thing we're going to do is start out with our legs, shoulder width apart, and we're going to do body rolls back; single, single, double, five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three four, five, six, seven, eight.
