Rihanna and Drake’s song Work is one of those g’damn catchy tunes we just can’t get away from. It’s on the radio, they’re playing it on rotation in pretty much every store and just TRY to go on a night out without hearing it at least once. In fact, you’ve probably heard it about 50 times in the last week alone, right?
Well, let me ask you a question. Did it ever cross your mind that Work is a break up song?! Because according to PARTYNEXTDOOR – the man who wrote that catchy, catchy tune – it is.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the rapper dropped a serious truth bomb. "I tried this year to make the party songs,” he said. “It wasn't in me. People think ['Work' is] a party song. It's a breakup song. It's blues. I went from braggadocious to blues."
Now that you mention it, these lyrics do sound like they could related to a break up:
Nobody text me in a crisis
I believed all of your dreams, adoration
You took my heart and my keys and my patience
You took my heart on my sleeve for decoration
However, we do have one question… If Work is a break up song, why on earth are Rihanna and Drake always dancing around on stage (read: grinding) as if they’re having a time of their life. Guys, if we're talking about heartbreak here, Work should be performed accordingly!
Safe to say, we were completely blindsided by this revelation. What is real?
