Rihanna Premieres Official ‘Anti’ Single ‘Work’ Featuring Drake!

THE WAIT IS OVA, THE WAIT IS OVA!!! Rihanna has just premiered her new single “Work” featuring Drake, their third collaboration together after 2010’s “What’s My Name” and 2012’s “Take Care.”

The track serves as the “first official single” off of the much-teased new album ANTI, which is expected to be released this week.

Following the previously released “FourFiveSeconds,” “American Oxygen” and “Bitch Better Have My Money,” the subdued, yet seductive gem – produced by Boi-1da and co-written by PARTYNEXTDOOR – almost instantly feels like a return-to-form as she flaunts her island accent across a bouncy, chilled-out tropical-inspired groove (See Unapologetic‘s “No Love Allowed,” Loud‘s “Man Down,” etc.)  “Work, work, work, work, work, work/ He said me haffi/ Work, work, work, work, work, work/ He see me do mi/ Dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt,” she ridiculously mumbles throughout as if she just got her wisdom teeth taken out and the Novocaine hasn’t worn off yet.

Given the title and the two big names behind the song, “Work” doesn’t immediately sound like a #1 smash but it definitely grows on you and I kind of love how unintelligible it is. I can’t wait to hear what else she has in store for us on ANTI – Stay tuned!

Ri and Drake shot the video for the song at L.A.’s Eagle Rock Plaza earlier this month.

  1. Eh…. she should have instead released LEAN ON or LIGHT IT UP by Major Lazor. cant believe she turned down Lean On!

  2. Nothing groundbreaking, but I love it! It’s fun, carefree and it’s Rihanna! :)))

  3. AHhhhHHHHHH Me dun luv it!!

    So glad it’s not some generic pop song, been dancing all morning at work work work work work

  4. We have been kept in suspense, waiting for months, and this is what she releases as the lead up to the release of ‘Anti’. I am beyond disappointed. I don’t hold much hope for the album now.

  5. Can’t wait to see how long this flops before they start calling it a “buzz single”….

  6. What happened…
