Rihanna's Hit 'Work' Was Almost an Alicia Keys Song!

Rihanna keeps her shades on as she heads to a waiting car on Monday night (August 22) in New York City.

The 28-year-old singer just revealed that her next single is going to be “Love on the Brain.”

Rihanna‘s hugely popular single “Work” almost went to another artist though!

Songwriter PartyNextDoor claims that the song almost went to Alicia Keys because Rihanna‘s label didn’t care for Caribbean music at the time.

Even though PartyNextDoor says the song almost went to Alicia, her husband Swizz Beatz tweeted that it was not true.

We’re just glad that Rihanna released the song!
