PARTYNEXTDOOR’s Demo Of Rihanna’s ‘Work’ Leaks
As most of you know, Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ had quite the pool of collaborators behind the scenes. One of the names that stood out the most was PARTYNEXTDOOR and his contribution to her #1 hit ‘Work’ ft. Drake. The OVO signee was one of many co-writers on the track – but until a leaked demo of ‘Work’ with PND’s vocals attached to it, we didn’t realize how much he was involved in the song’s creation.
For one, it’s quite amazing that Rihanna can take a demo like this (let’s call it what it is, rough and lifeless) and really take it to the next level. Something else that’s pretty mind-blowing – not much has changed from PARTYNEXTDOOR’s demo. Sure, the lyrics have been changed ever so slightly to reflect a woman’s point of view, but most of the revisions appear on Drake’s verse.
Demos can leak and make the final version of a song sound terrible. Thankfully, that is not the case here. We could have lived without this, but it’s nice to compare the two and see the different stages ‘Work’ went through before it officially became a Ri track.
