For this remake, the “Locked Away” duo sings about doing “dirt, dirt, dirt” in a relationship and having to “work, work, work” their way towards redemption. R. City also pleads with a girl to stop going through their phone. Rihanna and Drake’s original material remains in this version, creating an extra long iteration.
The singer-songwriters have ties to Rihanna. They co-wrote “Man Down” in 2011 and “Pour It Up” in 2012.
Listen to R. City put in “Work” below (via HHNM).
