‘Work’ Almost Didn’t Work For Rihanna

You can’t have summer 2016 without the song, “Work.” No matter what kind of radio station you listen to, I can almost guarantee you that the track by Rihanna & Drake will find itself in rotation someway or another. The song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Rihanna’s 14th No. 1 single and Drake’s 2nd. It remained there for 9 weeks; sheeesh! But with all of that said, the record was not always her record.

“Work” was written by songwriter, PartyNextDoor and he actually had Alicia Keys in mind for the record. In a recent interview with the New York Times, it was revealed that it wasn’t always RiRi’s song.

“Her label didn’t care for Caribbean music at the time,”  said Party, providing that he almost kept the track and considered giving it to Keys. In the end, Rihanna fought for it & it became hers. ”
