Rihanna topped the Billboard Hot 100 for nine consecutive weeks this summer with her single 'Work' that featured her beau Drake.
However, despite the crazy success of the catchy tune, apparently it almost didn't get recorded!
In an interview with the New York Times, singer and music producer PartyNextDoor, who co-wrote 'Work' said that the song almost got rejected by Riri.
According to PartyNextDoor, Rihanna's “label didn’t care for Caribbean music at the time” and did not want her to record the song.
However the song “was all that Rihanna could sing around the house … she fought for it” and so her label reassessed the situation and agreed to let her record it.
We can all agree that was the best decision ever, with the song sitting pretty at number one for over two months.
If you want to hear more sounds similar to 'Work', have a listen to PartyNextDoor's second studio, entitled PartyNextDoor 3.
Just weeks after rumours of their potential relationship began to emerge, Kylie Jenner has been serenaded by her potential flame PartyNextDoor.
As well as hosting a Memorial Day pool party over the weekend – which was attended by her BFF Hailey Baldwin and her ex-boyfriend Jayden Smith – Kylie managed to capture PartyNextDoor’s performance of the original song and share it on Snapchat.
The short clip shows the Canadian rapper sitting at a piano playing chords to the pretty uninspiring lyrics “Kylie, oh Kylie” – any song is better than no song, right?
The 18-year-old makeup guru captioned the video “Vibes”.
Although the official status of their relationship is still unknown, Kylie and PND have been hanging out a lot since she split with her rap-star boyfriend Tyga earlier this month.
On Saturday the Keeping Up With The Kardarshians star accused PND of hiding her in a video which he posted to his Snapchat account.
He responded to her claim by saying: “No I don’t, man. I’m trying to protect you.”
Could this song be a sign that the pair are about to go public with their relationship?
Or is it just a teaser for a future PND release?
Kylie Jenner just broke up with her boyfriend of nearly three years, Tyga, but she's been hanging around with another rapper, PartyNextDoor, which has sparked rumours he's the new man in her life.
The pair were hanging out over the weekend which set everyone's tongue wagging after he shared a photo on Instagram:
Yep. Swanky picture. It shows the two celebs comparing their diamonds, as one does.
However, the next day, Tyga seemed to call the picture out aND posted a copycat snap with the same caption. Jealous?
Now, we doubt Kylie is already in a full on relationship with PartyNextDoor, but the picture did seem to get to Tyga.
