Rihanna Releases First 'ANTI' Single "Work"

The track, from Rihanna's highly anticipated and long-awaited new album, finds her reteaming with frequent collaborator/ex Drake.

Rihanna announced "the wait is ova" back in 2009, but that applies equally today — finally, a new Rihanna song from the long-awaited ANTI is here! Even better, it features none other than Drake.

"Work," available exclusively online via Tidal but being serviced to radio this morning, finds Rihanna reteaming with frequent collaborator/ex Drake, but that's the only predictable thing about this song — while it's hardly a 180-degree turn for Rih, its minimal production subverts expectations of what you'd expect a major pop star to release when they're gearing up to drop their long-delayed new album.

Speaking of which, as Billboard reported yesterday, ANTI should be upon us very soon — as in, quite possibly tomorrow, according to sources. Get ready and get excited that the wait finally is ova.
