With just over three weeks to go in 2016, let’s start to wrap this fucking bitch up, shall we?
While none of us have any idea what the next four, oops, few years will bring, what we do know is that those grooves will continue to bump no matter what, and as long as we have tracks like Ms. RiRi’s “Work” to get us by on the dance floor of life, it’s all fucking good in the music hood.
Served up at the start of the year as the lead single from her much delayed (and now super successful) ANTi set, the contemporary dancehall inspired number not only came armed and ready with not one, but two accompanying music videos, but it had all of us wondering just what the fuck Ri was spittin’ out. Right, Drake?
Indeed, it’s still a music mystery, but either way it all, um, worked because “Work” became Rihanna’s fourteenth (!!!) number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, ushered in a new era of the diva we’re still living for (“Kiss it Better” for fucking life), and now will dance its way straight to Grammy night next year as it’s been nominated for a handful of awards including Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance thanks to her former Degrassi co-star.
I guess what it all comes down to is Rihanna betta werk when it comes to “Work” because that’s what all of us will be doing for a very, very long time when it comes to this fucking track.
