Rih asked a complete stranger to appear in the video with her.

Rihanna found one of the co-stars of her ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ video on Instagram.

“When we were down there, the first day I met her, I was like, ‘How did you find me?’” Sanam recalled to Vice. “She was like, ‘I saw you on my Explore page.’ She saw that picture of me where I was wearing my nath and my tika. She was like, ‘I just thought you were so cool, and I was like, I don’t know if I should message her or not. I don’t know if she’s going to be down.’ I’m just sitting there, like, ‘Are you crazy? How could you be nervous to message me?’”
