Alexander O'Neal's song "If You Were Here Tonight" from 1985 is one of the inspiration pillars of this song.

In other countries such as Canada, Denmark, France, Spain, South Africa, Belgium and the Netherlands the song was an instant success, where it also dominated the #1 spot in the charts. Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Germany are some of the countries in which the song "only" reached top 5, if we can say so :)
Work has a total of two music videos, one more than usual. They were both made public in February of 2016.
"Work" was praised as a song which has brought the genre of dancehall to the forefront of American music, becoming the first dancehall song to top the Billboard Hot 100 since Sean Paul's "Temperature" (2006). A Billboard writer (Taj Rani) highlighted the song and Rihanna herself for displaying West Indian culture prominently without appropriation from the mainstream.
