Rihanna shows why she’s one of the hardest working women in show business in a new behind-the-scenes video clip from a rehearsal for her upcoming Diamonds Tour. Now you know where all those sexy hip-thrusting gyrations come from.

The tour will kick off on Friday (Mar. 8) in Buffalo, NY, then move to Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Hartford, Conn., before swinging into Canada.

From there it’s back to the United States for several dates and back to Canada again before she makes a major US swing starting in April. She’ll head overseas first to Africa for one date and then to Europe in May.

Rihanna has been in London where her new clothing line, Rihanna for River Island Collection, launched at the brand’s Oxford Street store today (Mar. 4)

The tour will support her new studio album Unapologetic. ASAP Rocky will open on the North American leg of the tour and David Guetta will play select European dates, including London and Paris.

The video, posted today (Mar. 4), shows Rihanna working with her choreographer on some of the sexy dance routines she’s likely to incorporate in the show.

The almost two-minute clip opens with the choreographer noting that it’s midnight and they’re still “going hard.” Rihanna practices a sexy move with her arm a few times until her instructors says “there it is.”

“This routine gives you the feeling of like a stripper/hood,” the instructor smiles. “That’s the type of energy, that’s the type of mindset she’ll be in.”

Rihanna and the other dancers practice looking in a wall-length mirror so they can see their moves as well as feel them.

About a minute in the clip cuts to a different scene. Rihanna is wearing a midriff bearing sleeveless tee-shirt and goes through a series of sexy hip-gyrations to the music wearing some very low-slung sweatpants.

Then, she drops into a slow sexy crouch. It looks like the tour will be pure Rihanna. Check out the video below and her upcoming tour schedule, including all announced dates.
