RiRi is back. Following months of speculation, ANTIdiaRy videos, and mystery, Rihanna rings in the ANTI era with her new single “Work” featuring Drake. The subdued, yet seductive track, produced by Boi-1da and co-written by PARTYNEXTDOOR, finds her reuniting with the 6 God, whom she previously collaborated with on 2012’s “Take Care” and 2010’s “What’s My Name?”
The two show off their undeniable chemistry while dueting over the wavy beat. Rihanna flaunts her island accent as she coos to Drizzy, who spills all his emotions (“If you had a twin, I would still choose you”) and even references his Meek Mill beef (“Sorry if I’m way less friendly, I got ni**s tryna end me”).

A video for “Work” was shot in Los Angeles earlier this month, and is rumored to premiere in the next two weeks.
This may not be the only new RiRi we get this week. According to Billboard, her long-awaited eighth album ANTI will arrive as a surprise release before Friday. The album has previously spawned the singles “FourFiveSeconds,” “Bitch Better Have My Money,” and “American Oxygen.”
On Feb. 26, she will kick off the North American leg of her “ANTI World Tour” in San Diego with special guest Travis Scott.
