I like this unconventional way of presenting pop music. Beyonce with her surprise visual album and Rihanna with her surprise release and two videos for the lead single off of “ANTI,” “Work.”
While the videos are more vanity shots to give the song a visual, they work, work, work, work, work, work. The first video is a reggae inspired club scene, Rihanna always looking runway ready, Drake looking sharp. Cool.
In the second video all you can see are Rihanna’s nipples and Drake’s bulge.
A teaser for the long awaited video for Rihanna’s “Work” is scheduled to premiere on Monday. Got a good lil’ vibe from the video. Won’t be anything stunning, but it’ll give a nice visual to the song.
Now that I think about it. The teaser reminds me of Beyonce’s “Baby Boy.” The part where she sings “in a dark, dark corner of a basement party.” I liked that video.
Iggy Azalea’s long awaited debut album, “The New Classic” is a finished product, but has been pushed back, yet again, due to contractual obligations. Originally scheduled to release in October of this year, “The New Classic” took a backseat when news emerged that Azalea was announced as the opening act for Beyonce’s “The Mrs. Carter Tour” in Australia. The new date change was due to the holiday season not being a great time for her to release her debut album.
Iggy has already released “Work,” “Change Your Life (Featuring T.I.),” and “Bounce” from “The New Classic.” Here’s hoping for more tracks like “Work” and for the release date to stick this time.
