Rihanna at her 8th album's artwork reveal for "ANTI" on Oct. 7, 2015 in Los Angeles. 

Rihanna announced "the wait is ova" back in 2009, but that applies equally today -- finally, a new Rihanna song from the long-awaited ANTI is here! Even better, it features none other than Drake

Rihanna to Release 'ANTI' This Week

"Work," available exclusively online via Tidal but being serviced to radio this morning (Jan. 27), finds Rihanna reteaming with frequent collaborator/ex Drake, but that's the only predictable thing about this song -- while it's hardly a 180 degree turn for Rih, its minimal production subverts expectations of what you'd expect a major pop star to release when they're gearing up to drop their long-delayed new album.

Speaking of which, as we reported yesterday, ANTI should be upon us very soon -- as in, quite possibly tomorrow, according to sources. Get ready and get excited that the wait finally is ova.
