As rumors regarding the release date of Ri’s anticipated album continue, we can at least praise the singer for keeping us entertained with her new single “Work,” featuring Drake.
On Wednesday, Badgalriri debuted the first single from her upcoming LP, Anti on Elvis Duran’s Z100 radio show and now it’s available for the masses to hear.
The track has an island vibe that makes us want to dirty wind; but it’s right around the two-minute mark when Drake appears that the song becomes an instant club banger.
“Baby, don’t you leave / Don’t leave me stuck here in the streets / If I get another chance to,” Rihanna sings. “I will never, no never, neglect you / I mean, who am I to hold your past against you? / I just hope that it gets to you / I hope that you see this through / I hope that you see this true / What can I say? Please recognize I’m trying, baby.”
The release of the track comes just weeks after Ri and Drizzy were spotted shooting a music video for the song at Eagle Rock Plaza in Los Angeles. Based on a few photos that hit the Web, the video will include designer horses and decked out Louis Vuitton covered SUVs
Ri, who is no stranger to a Drizzy collabo, was initially supposed to release Anti in May or June of last year. But then it was pushed back to September, then November 2015 and then again in December 2015. But now, Billboard is confirming that the album will be released this week.
Earlier this week, it was speculated that Ri had indeed finished the album after she posted a photo of herself wearing $8,895 gold D&G Napa leather rhinestone headphones with the caption:
“Listening to Anti.”
