Fans have waited a long time for Rihanna's "Work" music video, so why not drop two versions? On Monday (Feb. 22), the visual for the Drake-assisted ANTI single finally arrived online, and we got not one but TWO clips for the new song.
The first "Work" video plays into Rihanna's Barbados and Caribbean roots. Playing into her heavy patois accent in the single, Rihanna shows up to a jerk restaurant and bar and parties with a massive group of people. There's a twerk-off, plenty of weed and Red Stripe to go around and some delicious-looking Caribbean food.
Rihanna plays into this video just as much as any other guest at the bar, though near the end of the clip, she and Drake take center stage as she grinds on him.
But, just when you think the video is over... a second video starts after a faux loading time.
Unlike the first "Work" video, Drake and Rihanna go it alone in a pink and purple room. Rihanna is carefree, dancing for her own enjoyment (and, I guess, Drake's) while wearing a netted top and denim mini-skirt. Rihanna and Drake's chemistry is the real star of this video as they joke and smile. While the video on the surface is sultry, it seems like it's just two friends dancing to their new hit single.
"Work" is the lead single from Rihanna's new album ANTI, which dropped by surprise in January. This track is just the latest collaboration between Rihanna and Drake, following the release of his hit "Take Care" and her "What's My Name?"
