RiRi is back! Rihanna dropped another single off her long-awaited eighth studio album, Anti, during Elvis Duran's Z100 radio show on Wednesday, January 27. The track "Work" features her longtime friend, and ex, Drake.
Rihanna, 27, and Drake, 29, previously collaborated on 2010's "What's My Name" and "Take Care" in 2011.
"Baby, don't you leave / Don't leave me stuck here in the streets / If I get another chance to / I will never, no never, neglect you / I mean, who am I to hold your past against you? / I just hope that it gets to you," she sings in the sultry tune. "What can I say? / Please recognize that I'm trying baby / I've been doing work, work, work, work, work."
The Barbadian native first revealed artwork for Anti in October during a small L.A. gathering at MAMA gallery. The artwork featured a photo of herself as a young child covered in red paint and wearing a gold crown. She said that the look was inspired by contemporary artist Roy Nachum. (Rihanna's album was delayed for months, but she released three songs during that time: "Bitch Better Have My Money," "FourFiveSeconds" and "American Oxygen.")

"I fell in love with him because I felt like there was another spirit, there was another layer to the art," she said at the time. "After we met, we talked about what I wanted visually, what would make me the happiest girl in the world."
