Rihanna's Work Video Is the Weekend I Hope to Have

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Rihanna teased a short clip of her video for "Work" — the first single off the very-long-awaited ANTI album — and now she's teasing us again with a 30-second clip. It's a party, and it looks like so much fun! Here's to everyone's weekend being this exciting, and may your Friday night include a little bump-and-grind with someone like Drake.

Update: The full video is here! It's over 7 minutes long — because it's actually TWO VIDEOS — but the highlight is absolutely at the 1:38 mark, which is when you can see Drake mouth "wow, wow!" while watching all the super fun dancing. And then another, similar expression at 5:59. Also, my weekend was not this exciting.
