Rihanna has had a rough two weeks with cancelling her Grammy's performance and the delay of her tour, but now we have a music video. Scratch that; now we have two music videos to lift our spirits. "Work" is the latest single off her album ANTi, and while it is not our favorite song she's ever released, it's still a catchy tune.
After releasing a handful of videos last year for promo singles, Rihanna is kicking of ANTi with an over seven minute long video. In the video Rihanna spends her time primarily grinding and partying, and the seven minute spectacle includes two versions of the music video, each one a little over 3 minutes long.
The first one has less Drake and a whole party full of alcohol and twerking people where the second is much more intimate with just Drake and Rihanna. We prefer music video number two because its sexier. The coloring is spectacular and Ri Ri sexes is up with Drake. Drake spends most of the video sitting back and watching Rihanna before he gets up to join her for a very sexy little dance.
In the first version, Rihanna is basically at a party with a whole lot of drinking and sex which she watched until Drake shows up and she dances on him. Hopefully the video spurs her creative energies in the weeks leading to her tour launch.
This week "Work" went to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, which means that Rihanna now has more number 1s then Michael Jackson. Think about that...
Watch the video below and make sure to watch it from start to finish! Even though we like 2 better, you might be really into 1. Sound off on your thoughts in the comments. Do you prefer one or two? Do you like the song? Do we know what Rihanna's singing about for a good portion of the end of this song? So many questions to be answered.
