New Video: Rihanna – ‘Work (ft. Drake)’

Published: Monday 22nd Feb 2016 by Sam

Rihanna has finally revealed the video for ‘Work’ – the lead single from her embattled ‘ANTI’ album.

Directed by X, the visual naturally features guest star Drake, who the 28-year-old siren wines and grinds on throughout the duration of the clip.

Following an aggressive launch, which saw the song played on mainstream radio every-hour-on-the-hour, the track has taken off- both digitally and on the airwaves.

With its video now available for streaming, will it be enough to push the Caribbean-kissed cut to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 where its current peak is #4?

Watch below and let…us…know!

Kudos where due; the video compliments the sound of the song exquisitely.

From the moody mise en scène (which borrows from Janet Jackson’s ‘Got Til It’s Gone’) to the Dancehall dipped choreography, Rih scores a win with this one. Indeed, where her talent lacks, her visuals oftentimes make up for it – this being no exception.

In a rare move, she pulls off the innovative by combining two videos in one. [Editor’s note: Smart Olivia Pope-ing as clearly two separate videos were shot)

The song (especially the hook) leave a lot to be desired, but there’s little to fault here.

With #1 in reaching distance, it’d be great to see her punch onto ‘Kiss It Better’ ASAP with an equally compelling video to boot.

    • T February 22, 2016

    • Beyonce wins February 22, 2016

      Dethroned … B**** where!!!

    • rosy February 22, 2016

      Beyonce is so petty by the end of the day she going to release something to take attention from rih the jealousy is real and people think rih care or jealous of bey it’s funny she stayed silent when adele release her album bey I come to realize is the one who is jealous of rih and Jay relationship so she goes out of her way to sabotage rih trust me navy when rih is getting attention look how bey go out and release something we will see a picture of blue hair umcomb

      • You tried February 22, 2016

A married women jealous of an “alleged” relationship between her husband and a floozy???? and thanks for admitting that Rih ducked Adeles reign and her “Era” still hasn’t taken off! Just enjoy this crappy a** mess why it’s here because by TOMROW no one will be talking about it!

      And you’re proud of that?

    • Mad Cause I’m So Fresh February 22, 2016

      What an awesome accomplishment, the nappy should be so proud ??

  4. T February 22, 2016

    Typical Expected video……nothing to rave about

    • Okayyyy February 22, 2016

      Yeah, it was predictable. She should have dared to be more creative. It looks like your usual Sean Paul video.

      • Jay_Scorpio_Navy_2005 February 22, 2016

        thats the whole point of the video…. bringing back dancehall to the forefront… get a clue would you

  5. shakira stan February 22, 2016

    Long live queenana.

  6. JMar February 22, 2016

    i didnt like the video rihanna can not dance she so f****** stiff when she dances why she waited so long to release this horrible video.

  7. #Beautiful February 22, 2016

    The second video was pretty boring. The first video wasn’t much better. Love to thwerkin

  8. Authentic February 22, 2016

    Rihanna thinks being pretty is enough I believe. Rihs a grown woman now & still trying to appeal to children & superficial people with no sustance.

  9. shakira stan February 22, 2016

    Not rihanna out dancing trashyonce so effortlessly.

    • Beyonce wins February 22, 2016

      If u call that out dancing Beyonce, maybe u need a session with frank gatson and inyanlah

      • Rozel February 22, 2016

        Yes Rihanna Caribbean whine effortlessly. She don’t need choreographed dance steps because her island whine comes naturally. Beyonce does the same old choreographed moves. Nothing has changed since Destiny’s child.

  10. shakira stan February 22, 2016

    That twerking on drake was everything!!!

  11. Nakiah February 22, 2016

    The most outdated and basic video I’ve seen in a while

  12. #JACKIE February 22, 2016

    I love it. The song makes my f****** hips move. I still don’t like the b****!!

    • datredd23 February 22, 2016

      why do you hate her?

      • What now February 22, 2016

        Bc Ciara is Rihanna’s lessor

  13. Slayer February 22, 2016

    Formation >>>>>>>>>>>> this trash. That’s all I’m going to say.

    • Monica Stan February 22, 2016

      But where’s Flopmation on the charts?

      • RihYonce February 22, 2016

        Wait till her official single drops ! The slayage will begin “formation ” was just the attention grabber ?

  14. Cake like Lady GaGa February 22, 2016

    1 Flo Rida – My House
    2 Rihanna – Work (feat. Drake)
    3 twenty one pilots – Stressed Out
    4 Justin Bieber – Love Yourself
    5 Lukas Graham – 7 Years

    I thought this was meant to be here 14th #1, how is coming along? kiiii

    • Rory February 22, 2016

      That’s just iTunes. In order to get a number one, you gotta have great streaming (work is #1 in streaming), great radio updates, and sale downloads. It’s chart position is going to be released today. It’s either going # 1 by today, or because of the video, it’ll be #1 next week

    • datredd23 February 22, 2016

      combined with both versions is number one on itunes hun

    • Jay_Scorpio_Navy_2005 February 22, 2016

      Do you read anything else besides this website because already indicated its between rihanna – work and justin – love yourself for the number 1 spot this week

  15. DIABETIC ORACLE February 22, 2016

    BOOOORING song & video. This loud leftover is jist another safe dancehall/pop/ragae song… can she do anything else? Like faster paced songs like Cil Sngle ladies partition losemybreathe?? Oh i forgot SHE CANT DANCE. I do HOPE this song goes #1… so there wont be any excuses for why it couldnt even outsell PINKPRINT US OR WW. Almost a full month and only 200k us & under 400k ww? Sum Queen.

    • datredd23 February 22, 2016

      I’m pretty sure she has a rude boy WFL and a where have you been in her discography!

    • Rihboy February 22, 2016

  21. LND_Gyal February 22, 2016

    Oh no… I’m sad. Both videos are dry as phuck, even Riri looks bored. Why is she whining so stoosh, I know she can bruck out better than that.

  26. Ty February 22, 2016

    Rihanna just doesn’t seem that bothered tbh… The dancing was so stiff ??, I expected more…. it just seemed halfassed. I think she should re-release anti with kiss it better as the lead single, and forget about all this half baked crap she keeps putting out. There is not fire in her atm she seems different can’t put my finger on it.

  27. Rebecca S for Queen Bey, Princess Rih, and R&B legend Monica February 22, 2016

  36. RihYonce February 22, 2016

    I wish she would’ve did more of her island dances in the video but overall it was cute

  37. Career Ender February 22, 2016

    when the trick can’t go #1 , they be like :”COMBINED WITH ……”
    not is she unselling, she’s now combine(d)-anna, she depends on combination to seem powerful

      • RihYonce February 22, 2016

        How b**** ? *kanye voice* because Beyoncé is always constantly changing what she does so these haters can’t get comfortable, an album movie is brilliant & it’s the only way to top SELFTITLED which she will

  39. Career Ender February 22, 2016

    • Keri Qween February 22, 2016

      Not a plastic minaj fan talking about someone being stiff

  41. Dev February 22, 2016

    The first video had the right idea but was visually too choppy and the scenes with Drake and Rihanna were lacklustre as they seemed to lack chemistry. The video could’ve better if the had better dancers and longer shots of the atmosphere but really doesn’t do what it could’ve to elevate the song. The second video was wack and pointless . I still love there song

  42. DIABETIC ORACLE February 22, 2016

    $1.29 (Rih) >>> $13.99 (Adele) $500 (Bey). #NAVYLOGIC. LMAOOOO Rih has Singles out Videos out Album out promo & Even 2 OPENING ACTS & cant seell out ARENAS. While jbeyust has 1 video/performance & selling on STADIUMS (with no opening act) in minutes. “THAT B-ITCH, THAT DRESS IS AMAZING… I HATE HER” -PARIS HILTON “Maybe i should bowdown”-Frihannas inner thoughts.

  43. King Gemini February 22, 2016

    People think music is so supposed to be Deep and meaningful and slow. That doesn’t define good music. Crappy music is crappy music and this isn’t that. This song serves it’s purpose it’s a fun pop song that’s gonna get us ready for to spring make everyone dance have fun and feel good. It’s a great catchy pop song and a true dance pop song people let there love for 1 artist dislike other artists it’s sad there’s room for you to like more than 1 artist only small minded people think like that because Idc who you Stan for none is you idiots only listen to 1 artist. And you’re always comparing stats just enjoyed the entertainment we are receiving from these entertainers. Most of them we friends and ya be arguing over stupid things. The navy and the barbs alway argue like Rihanna and Nicki don’t adore each other i don’t understand it. Like i always state i don’t Stan for artist i stand for music in general and love several, several artists including both Rihanna and beyonce smh

    they will come in here around the 100 comment mark and try to drag the “HIVe!!” for having no life even though they ran into the Formation post before their free library credit ran out for the evening.

    Hopefully this song going #1 helps her tour sales. No excuse for tickets to be selling worse than “lana del FAD’s” Endless Summer Tour!

    Love it, & I love the the two video concept.

    The first video is like a revamped more mature Pon De Replay, while the second is more sentimental and personal in relation to the actual lyrics.

    Lastly to the Gaga Stan, b**** do research before you try to drag/throw shade only to make your self look like a idiot.

    #Work is #1 on US iTunes with combine sales.
    #1 on Streaming
    #11 on US Overall Radio
    And to top it off it is now officially GOLD in the US.

    to the bandwagon phaggot. I use Live Pop bars, ad they specifically say that they combine all versions to get the total, then use that total.
    but even with that total, Flo-Rida is still slaying Rihherrpes.
    whats your next excuse?

    BEYONCE = 15 SOLD OUT STADIUMS & COUNTING (almost 1 million buyers already more than those that bought the anti album + Tickets combined). But it might not be too late to open for Bey if she canceled the tour now. Bey could use an opening act and rih could use the money.

    I love the album. I dislike these videos. I don’t like the visual of her and Drake together. They had good chemistry but man… Eye sore.

    Rihanna, this album is too cool and creative to put out basic visuals. #DoBetter

  71. Cinnamon Girl February 22, 2016

    @what now, you always say that Ciara is Rihanna’s lessor. Ciara is not a drug addicted w#### like Rihanna. She is not rude and unprofessional like Rihanna. Rihanna is nowhere near Ciara’s level.

    Your 14th U.S #1 single has finally arrived!

    You are now the third solo artist with the most number one singles in Hot 100 history and the second female overall behind Mariah Carey.

    Now, you need to hurry up and release “Kiss It Better” or “Needed Me” or “Love On The Brain” along with the videos so you can perhaps score your 15th/16th #1 single.

    ANTI slays… and haters will remain mad, angry, distressed and frustrated! 😉 😉 😉

    Two videos? Ok the marketing strategy for this song is well in tact.
    Didn’t feel the second video brought anything other than a better wig.

    Although I like the video I truly felt the director of this video really scored well in getting a reminiscent of his work with Sean Paul’s music video “Get Busy”. This video isn’t anything different or new just like when Beyonce did “Baby Boy” it wasn’t anything different from what we’ve already seen from other Jamaican music videos but both paid homage to the culture.
    Enjoy the music and SETTLE! ?

    Rihanna has more than a birthday to celebrate this week. Her new single “Work” landed at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 this week — making it her 14th song to top the charts.

    With #14, she surpasses Michael Jackson as the third act in history with the most Hot 100 No. 1s.

    20, The Beatles
    18, Mariah Carey
    14, Rihanna
    13, Michael Jackson
    12, Madonna
    12, The Supremes
    11, Whitney Houston
    10, Janet Jackson
    10, Stevie Wonder

    via Billboard:

    “Work” crowns Streaming Songs, roaring 4-1 with a 73 percent increase to 25.8 million streams, according to Nielsen Music, after its recent wide release on streaming services, including official and user-generated content on YouTube; with the song’s official video released today, any gains from the clip’s arrival will be reflected on next week’s Hot 100, to be released next Monday (Feb. 29). Rihanna earns her second Streaming Songs No. 1 (following her featured turn on Eminem’s “The Monster,” which led the Jan. 4, 2014 list), while Drake celebrates his first Streaming Songs leader.

    “Work” concurrently holds at No. 2 on Digital Songs (119,000, up 5 percent), after debuting at No. 1 on the ranking three weeks ago, and lifts 13-10 on Radio Songs (76 million, up 21 percent). Rihanna posts her 24th top 10 on Radio Songs, passing Mariah Carey’s 23 for the most top 10s dating to the chart’s December 1990 inception. Drake tallies his 14th Radio Songs top 10. (The track wins dual top Streaming and Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100 for a second straight week.)

    “Work” additionally tops the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (15.1 million streams, up 16 percent) for a second week and paces Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a third (nonconsecutive) week.

    Also, with Rihanna and Drake assuming the Hot 100’s throne, the Barbados-born Rihanna (who celebrated her 28th birthday Saturday!) and Canadian Drake extend the record of non-U.S.-born acts leading the chart to 33 weeks. “Work” is additionally the ninth No. 1 Hot 100 in a row by non-Americans, breaking the record for the longest such streak; eight first reigned in succession in 1985).

    Congrats to Rihanna & Drake!

    Ummmmmm ok? Well…I will say I wasn’t expecting 2 videos so that was a surprise. I prefer the first one over the second even though both of them kind of suck lmao. I still love the song though. Had it on repeat since released

    Thie song is much better than the videos, they were quite boring.

    Where are the LV horses? I thought there were scenes shot in a shopping mall… This era is a mess. Has the budget run out? Pay an editor to merge the scenes… and get Melina “Stockhouse” to direct next time. 7 min of two videos, why?, I was so excited, I thought there was a narrative. Like Rihanna works as a S*** Cashier at the mall (in a Puma store)… he works as a waiter at a coffee shop, she goes out for lunch, well, a coffee break, and they meet, he asks her out, they see each other after work, they ride out of the mall on LV horses instead of cars… they ride to the club, they grind on each other, the end. Where is creativity? At this point, as a fan, I’m sure even ANTi World Tour will be as underwhelming. I miss days like the TTT era, each video was better than the last. :..( good club scene though.
