Rihanna's "American Oxygen" music video has finally made its way onto YouTube!

The singer, who wrote the song for the NCAA's March Madness commercials, released her latest vid earlier this month on Tidal, but now it's here for al her fans to see.

The video features lots of patriotic images like the American flag and the Statue of Liberty. "Breathe out, breathe in/ This American oxygen," the Barbadian beauty sings in the opening moments. "Every breath I breathe/ Chasing this American dream/ Respect for a nickel and dime/ Turn it into an empire." "

"This is the new America/ We are the new America," she adds.



Patriotic images such as Barack Obama being sworn in as president as Michelle Obama watches and video of Martin Luther King speaking during the civil rights movement flash throughout the vid. She also shows fans having a great time at sporting events and the space accomplishments of NASA.

But not all of the clips are positive and heartwarming.

There are also powerful and heart-wrenching images of immigrants riding trains and bombs exploding during wars. We also see a homeless man begging for money and violent riots between police and civilians. There's also imagery of the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, drug dealers selling drugs, the Ku Klux Klan burning crosses and American factories polluting the air.

Watch the "American Oxygen" music video for yourself!
