Rihanna does something special for Toronto in her new music video for "Work" ft. Drake. She pays homage to an era that, more times then less seems to be forgotten in the wake of "The New Toronto" or "The 6". Before all the sad boy, molly popping future wave music Toronto is currently known for, there was a time where music videos showcased a side of Toronto that was unified through basement parties and Heineken. Where the motive wasn't to drown yourself in drugs and emotions, but to dance until you're so sweaty and tired that you need air. At which time you would go outside for a "bogey" or to "bun a ting".
Featured in the video is Regent park's carribean food restaurant "The Real jerk", which is a huge look for the redeveloping community.
The video is a super sexy dancehall party with a lot intimate grinding and a lot of Rihanna wining in front of a mirror (which is never a bad thing). It also feature Drake looking a little more comfortable on camera then usual "licking off shots" and "catching a bubble" from Rihanna.
