“Work” is a song recorded by Barbadian singer Rihanna for her eighth studio album, Anti (2016), featuring Canadian rapper Drake. The song was released as the lead single on January 27, 2016, through Westbury Road and Roc Nation.

The song was written by PartyNextDoor, Rihanna, Drake, Monte Moir, Rupert “Sevn” Thomas, Allen Ritter and Matthew Samuels, and was produced by Boi-1da, Kuk Harrell and Noah “40” Shebib.

The song is written in Jamaican Patois and Bajan Creole. Three of its writer-producers: Rupert “Sevn” Thomas, Matthew “Boi-1da” Samuels, and Jahron “PartyNextDoor” Brathwaite, are Jamaican-Canadians.

Critical response to “Work” was mixed upon release; critics praised its composition and Rihanna’s decision to return to her earlier themes of dancehall music, while others were more skeptical of the song’s potential as a comeback for the singer.

Critical opinion improved over time; the song was included on several year-end lists and nominated for two awards at the 59th Grammy Awards: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. The song reached number one on the United States’ Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming Rihanna’s fourteenth number-one single and making her the act with the fourth-most number-one songs on the chart (after The Beatles, Mariah Carey and Elvis Presley).

The song remained at the top for nine weeks. The song also peaked at number one in nine additional countries and is certified Platinum or higher in thirteen countries, including 8x Platinum in the US, 3x Platinum in the UK and Diamond in France. It has also since sold 32.5 million units worldwide, making it one of the best-selling digital singles of all-time.

The song was accompanied by two music videos, which both premiered on February 22, 2016. The first of the two versions was directed by Rihanna’s previous collaborator Director X, while the second was directed by Tim Erem.

The song was further promoted with live performance’s at the 2016 BRIT Awards which featured guest appearances from Drake and SZA, the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, as well as being performed on the Anti World Tour.

“Work” became the first dancehall song to top the Billboard Hot 100 since Rihanna’s own “Rude Boy” (2010) and was succeeded three weeks later by another dancehall song, Drake’s “One Dance”.

You took my heart and my keys and my patience
You took my heart on my sleeve for decoration
You mistaken my love I brought for you for foundation
All that I wanted from you was to give me

Something that I never had
Something that you’ve never seen
Something that you’ve never been, mmh
But I wake up and act like nothing’s wrong
Just get ready fi work, work, work, work, work, work
He said me haffi work, work, work, work, work, work
He see me do mi dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
So me put in work, work, work, work, work, work
Na, na, na, na, na, na
When you ah gon’ learn, learn, learn, learn, learn, learn?
Before the tables turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, turn
Beg you something, please
Baby don’t you leave

Don’t leave me stuck here in the streets, uh huh
If I get another chance to
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 tryin’, babe

He said me haffi work, work, work, work, work, work
He see me do mi dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt

When you ah gon’ learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Me nuh care if him hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting
Yeah, okay

You need to get done, done, done, done at work, come over
We just need to slow the motion
Don’t give that away to no one
Long distance, I need you
When I see potential I just gotta see it through
If you had a twin, I would still choose you
I don’t wanna rush into it, if it’s too soon
But I know you need to get done, done, done, done
If you come over

Sorry if I’m way less friendly
I got niggas tryna end me, oh, yeah
I spilled all my emotions tonight, I’m sorry
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
How many more shots until you’re rollin’?
We just need a face to face
You could pick the time and the place
You spent some time away
Now you need to forward

And give me all the work, work, work, work, work, work
He said me haffi work, work, work, work, work, work
He see me do mi dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
So me put in work, work, work, work, work, work
When you ah gon’ learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Me nuh care if him hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting

Mmmh
Mmmh
Work, work, work, work, work, work
Mmmh
