Director X, one of Rihanna‘s music video directors, recently opened up about working with her on her first video for “Pon de Replay” and her more recent video for “Work.” He explained that both videos happened to feature some of the same dancers!

“They’re both songs that had a West Indian feel to them, so to do it over here…We have a lot of West Indians [in Toronto]. It was just a really fitting, cool way to do it. There were even kids who did her first video and also did ‘Work.’ It felt like a return—even for Drake. He wasn’t in ‘Pon de Replay,’ but he grew up in Toronto and knew all those kids,” he explained.
