A$AP Ferg has remixed Rihanna's new single 'Work'.
The original single features Drake and was the first track heard from 'Anti', the album Rihanna released last month. The album leaked online ahead of its official release and there have been mixed reports over its sales figures. 'Anti' charted at Number Seven in the Official UK Album Chart after one week of sales.
The new version of the track sees A$AP Mob member Ferg strip it of the Drake verse and replace it with his own lyrics and ad-libs. In his new verse, Ferg praises Serena Williams and ballerinas. He also says he intends "no disrespect" to Drake for taking him off the track.
'Anti' features new single 'Work' as well as a cover of Tame Impala's 'New Person, Same Old Mistakes' (titled 'Same Ol' Mistakes'). Aside from Drake on 'Work', there is just one other featured artist on the record; R&B singer SZA.
2015 singles ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ and ‘American Oxygen’ do not feature on the record, nor does 'FourFiveSeconds', her collaboration with Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
