 If you had a twin, I would still choose you.


The song Work will definitely get to my list of songs for work out. But sadly I haven't started one yet. The Work is a song by Rihanna and Drake and it was released in January 2016. The genre is dancehall. That is just a version of reggae. It's a genre of Jamaican popular music.

Work was written by many artist and some of them are Jamaican. They probably used all their knowledge and vibes from their roots. On Complex website Zach Frydenlund worte an interview about their song making process: »we were all staying at Drake’s house in Los Angeles. We all stayed there for three or four days, and literally it was like a beat factory. Everyone was sitting there working and collaborating with each other. (...)We basically banged this track out in half an hour, and we were just jamming out because we could just feel that island vibe, and we knew that the sound of the industry is sort of shaking up its little island vibe, and we knew we were really authentic, we had the Jamaican culture, and we took it upon ourselves to hone in on that and make our new futuristic dancehall songs that we like to call the new wave.«
Song is written in the key of G# minor, but it is full of energy and my first thought was, I should use lots of hashtags such as dance, shakeyourbooty, twerk, can'twaitforsummer, let'shitthedanceflor and others. I put it in the key of C major. Whole song is based on four chords. But the melody part is a lot more challenging.

The meldoy is something totally different than the lyrics. Lyrics are about working man and work is his priority. On the other side there is his lonley and sad girlfriend, who wants him to come back home and give her some of his time, but all she gets are his work excuses, so their relationship is really fragile. Lyrics are a little bit »blurry«, hard to understand without reading them and maybe even with reading them. I can easily understand why there are such a mixed opinions, between liking and disliking the song, even among chritics. But never the less it is very succesful. It topped the Billboard (hot 100) and it also reached number one in many countries. I think that Work is one of few songs with genre dancehall that made it so big on Billboard.

 
 


Lyrics:

 Work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he said me haffi,
 work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he see me do me,

 hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting.

 Dry!... Me a desert him,
 no time to have you lurking,
 him ah go act like he don't like it,
 you know I dealt with you the nicest,
 nobody touch me you nuh righteous,
 nobody text me in a crisis,
 I believed all of your dreams, adoration,
 you took my heart and my keys and my patience,
 you took my heart on my sleeve for decoration,
 you mistaken my love I brought for you for foundation,
 all that I wanted from you was to give me.
  
 Something that I never had,
 something that you've never seen,
 something that you've never been!
 M
mmmm!
 But I wake up and act like nothing's wrong,
 just get ready fi...
  
  Work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he said me haffi,
 work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he see me do me,
 dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt,
 so me put in,
 work, work, work, work, work, work,
 when you ah gon',
 learn, learn, learn, learn, learn,
 meh nuh care if him,
 hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting.

 Beg you something please,
 baby don't you leave,
 don't leave me stuck here in the streets, uh huh,
 if I get another chance to,
 I will never, no never neglect you,
 I mean who am I to hold your past against you?
 I just hope that it gets to you,
 I hope that you see this through,
 I hope that you see this true,
 what can I say?
 Please recognize I'm tryin', babe!
 I have to

  Work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he said me haffi,
 work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he see me do me,
 dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt,
 so me put in,
 work, work, work, work, work, work,
 when you ah gon',
 learn, learn, learn, learn, learn,
 meh nuh care if him,
 hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting.

 Yeah, okay,
 you need to get done, done, done, done at work, come over,
 we just need to slow the motion,
 don't give that away to no one,
 long distance, I need you,
 when I see potential I just gotta see it through,
 if you had a twin, I would still choose you,
 I don't wanna rush into it, if it's too soon,
 but I know you need to get done, done, done, done,
 if you come over,
 sorry if I'm way less friendly,
 I got niggas tryna end me, oh,
 I spilled all my emotions tonight, I'm sorry,
 rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin',
 how many more shots until you're rollin'?
 We just need a face to face,
 you could pick the time and the place,
 you spent some time away,
 now you need to forward and give me all the...
 
  Work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he said me haffi,
 work, work, work, work, work, work,
 he see me do me,
 dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt,
 so me put in,
 work, work, work, work, work, work,
 when you ah gon',
 learn, learn, learn, learn, learn,
 meh nuh care if him,
 hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting.
