Bad Girl RiRi is at it again! She is working it, this time with Drake on a new single that is burning up the charts!

Rihanna just debuted her new single, “Work,” featuring Drake on all iHeartRadio stations across the country. This latest connection between Drake and RiRi has also been rumored for a little bit now, as footage of them shooting a video for the song at a mall in California surfaced earlier this month, according to ComPlex.

“Work” has a nice beat and is not the typical Rihanna upbeat dance grove song, but still she brings it with her amazing vocals. Drake adds his power vocals to the track and the two sound dynamic as they go back and forth. It’s a thrill ride for sure. The song is produced by Boi-1da.

Listen to the song via Tidal here. The single is also available to purchase on iTunes here.

Legendary Director Spike Lee will not attend the Oscars. The filmmaker is the latest in a long line of entertainment industry power houses to voice an opinion of the Academy Awards not recognizing people of color.

The outcry over African-American actors being snubbed from this year’s Oscars hopefuls has reached a breaking point, especially on social media where the hashtag, “Oscars So White” has brought more attention to the omission of black actors for the awards show.

On Monday, the director announced that he would not be attending the ceremony on Feb. 28.

Via Instagram, Lee asked how it was possible that there were no nominations for black actors for the second year running. After revealing that he nor his wife would attend the esteemed awards show, Lee added, “Dr. King said, “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but he must take it because conscience tells him it’s right.”

The Hollywood legend accepted an honorary Oscar in November for his collective body of work. He did offer these words in the post, “I would like to thank President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and the Board of Governors of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for awarding me an Honorary Oscar this past November. I am most appreciative. However my wife, Mrs. Tonya Lewis Lee and I will not be attending the Oscar ceremony this coming February. We cannot support it and mean no disrespect to my friends, host Chris Rock and Producer Reggie Hudlin, President Isaacs and The Academy.”
