''Again, it goes back to a story that we all can relate to. It’s not Rihanna’s story; it’s her story in the video, and she’s acting. But everybody’s [as well]. Obviously, there’s a lot of comparisons to her real life , and that’s not at all the intention.'' - Melina Matsoukas (video director)
"We Found Love'' is the most successful thing I've done ever. It's not strictly a song by me, obviously, it's by Rihanna. She sings it. It was great to work with her. No one could have taken it as far as she did. You can't escape it here in America. I've heard it a lot. I've heard it probably more times today than I did when I was mixing it. Which is a good thing.'' - Calvin Harris
