Rihanna recently released her eighth album under Def Jam entitled, Anti. The album has already gone platinum and her first album single,“Work” featuring Drake sits in the number one slot on the Billboard 200. This song makes it Rih’s 14th number one hit, which surpasses the King of Pop Legend, Michael Jackson. The Beatles still sit in the number one spot with 20 number one hits followed by Mariah Carey and Elvis Presley who’re tired with 18!

Since the hit has blazed the Billboard charts, the duo has released a steamy video for the number one hit “Work” that has rumors flying. Let’s back track a little bit. This is the first time Rihanna and Drake have collaborated together since 2012 with Drake’s, “Take Care”.  The two artist also steamed up the press with their relationship and single ,”What’s My Name”! This past weekend they were spotted leaving a club in London, separately! Hmmm. Rumors have it that the couples on again, off again but right now it seems to be ON!

Representing for the Bajans out here! Keep up the grind Rih!
