Ever since Rihanna released her much-anticipated eighth studio album, we’ve been on the lookout for our favorite artists to offer their own spin on ANTI.

It makes perfect sense we’d get a dope remix from Nigerian star Burna Boy. Today, the Don Gorgon lends his hand at Rihanna and Drake’s dancehall collabo, “Work.”

Burna Boy first teased the drop yesterday. "So I bin seein a lotta fans sayin Rihanna shoulda put me on 'work' and I think they're right so I'm guna play with it a bit n drop it ASAP," he tweeted Tuesday.

Check out the lyric video for the Burna Boy "Work" remix below.
