Exclusive: You Aren’t The Only One Who Royally Butchers Rihanna’s “Work”
You know the famous saying: Fake it till you make it … And that’s the motto most Rihanna fans put into motion when listening to the pop star’s track featuring Drake, “Work.”
It’s been an ongoing joke on social media that many mumble their way through the track featured on Badgalriri’s album, ANTI. So while at the 2016, iHeart Music Awards, HipHollywood put a few celebrities to the test to see if they could master the lyrics. The outcome? As expected.
Meagan Good admitted that “I go for the work work work work work, and then after that it’s like a bunch of mumbling underneath the song being blasted.” And for Black Eyed Peas member, Apple, the artist couldn’t even say the word “work,” instead hummed the entire chorus.
But while the over 30 crowd failed the lyric test, one little 12-year-old put us all to shame. YouTube sensation and known Nicki Minaj fanatic, Sophia Grace, proved that she knew all the lyrics. Impressive.
“Work” just hit its seventh week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and is now just one week away from potentially tying The Beatles for the second-most weeks at No. 1.
