Is this going to be my favorite music video of the year? Most likely. With lyrics like:
You’ve been inside, know you like to lay low I’ve been peepin’ what you bringin’ to the table Workin’ hard, girl, everything paid for First, last phone bill, car note, cable
you just know that this song is all about supporting strong and powerful women. To take things even a step further, Drake asked all of his lady friends who spread that power to join him in this music video. You’ll find cameos from Olivia Wilde, Misty Copeland, Issa Rae, Rashida Jones, Jourdan Dunn, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tiffany Haddish, Yara Shahidi, Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Lejonhjärta, Victoria Lejonhjärta, Letitia Wright, Bria Vinaite, Emma Roberts, Syd and Michelle Rodriguez. Ladies, this song is for us. Add it to your girl anthems playlist; I know I will. Let’s also not forget that this song samples Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor.”
Interestingly enough, we don’t have a lot of thoughts to share about this A Collection Part post. The last 3 months have been a blur, but a good one. I think we’ll have some thoughts that we can share tomorrow that we’re building up, but for now let’s just enjoy these.
It was a tough decision, but between Beyonce and Rihanna, I had to pick one and “Work” was a much better dance jam than “Formation.” Wouldn’t you agree? Also, I just love that Rihanna and Drake keep doing songs together! Moar, please. Sandy and I listened to this three times in a row at our desks the other day.
I can’t say that I loved this song when it first came out, but now that we’re nearing the end of the year, I’m realizing more and more just how good it actually is. We will definitely be seeing it on our Top 50 songs of 2015 list.
