WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK. Well it is obvious to say that it has paid off!
Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ album has finally been released. Now was it worth the wait? Well with the lead single ‘Work’ already claiming the top 10 chart position in over 20 countries, and ‘Work’ being Rihanna’s 14th number one single, it’s safe to say that Rihanna’s work is done!
A sleek, electronic hip hop track designed to be stuck in your head for days. The assisted number by Canadian rapper Drake, represents a chill and tropical vibe the song needed. The two part music video that was recently released didn’t leave much to the imagination, the Barbadian singer flaunted alongside Drake.
Rihanna is one of the biggest selling artists in the world and has produced 8 albums in 8 years, and her latest album ‘ANTI‘ offers a vision of sensuality that permeates the pop genre. Whilst others have criticised the song as “UNAPOLOGETIC (pardon the pun) black women showing off their heritage where politics are dominated by #BlackLivesMatter.” Nevertheless this doesn’t take away the fact that Rihanna has evolved from just an R&B singer to a global icon.
Keep slaying Rhi Rhi!!
