The music video for “Don’t Stop the Music” was premiered on BET’s 106 & Park on July 20, 2007. The video was filmed the day after the “Shut Up and Drive” video in Prague. It was directed by Taj and Rihanna and choreographed by Tina Landon.
The video opens with Rihanna and two of her friends coming out of a taxi, and they walk into a candy store telling a boy to be quiet. They sneak into the back of the candy store where there is a secret club. The verse begins with Rihanna singing in the bathroom while checking herself out and putting on makeup. After this she walks out of the bathroom and walks into the club where everyone is dancing, and the chorus begins. The rest of the video just shows Rihanna and her friends dancing in the club. Nolan Padilla from the Jennifer Lopez reality television show DanceLife makes a guest appearance.
The video reached number 2 on MTV’s TRL and number 1 on Yahoo! music Top 100 videos. As of August 2010 the video had been viewed over 122 million times on YouTube.
