In Don Gorgon’s hands, the track is a break-up anthem you can still dance to.

With its Director X-helmed video finally on the way, I still can't get enough of Rihanna's "Work." And this unofficial freestyle from Burna Boy, on which he turns the track into a break-up anthem you can still dance to, has me all the more obsessed. The remix may have come as a surprise, but the Boi-1da produced beat is a natural fit for the Nigerian artist's style of slow-creeping, dancehall-inspired pop. Like Rih, Burna Boy is thinking about an ex; unlike Rih, though, he does not cop to doing any dirt. Watch Burna Boy's "Work" lyric video above and revisit The FADER's interview with the afrofusion star.
