Rihanna Updates: Singer's 'Work' Is Not 'Tropical House' At All [VIDEO]

Close

Rihanna‘s new song “Work” with Drake from her new album ANTI is emblematic of a disturbing trend in pop music.

Dancehall seems to have taken over the world (again). “Work”continues the trend – but having been made by two artists who have made no secret of their love for reggae, you might think it might be the track that connected the dots for the general listening public.

However, in describing it, the music press seems to be bending over backwards in limbo-like contortions to avoid using the term, in one notable case even reaching for the not-really-a-thing genre term "Tropical House" as preferable to noting the song’s (and Rihanna’s) undeniable Caribbean influence.
