The wait paid off.
Rihanna's ANTi lead single launched to No. 1 on the US iTunes Top Songs chart not long after it debuted at 8 a.m. EST Wednesday morning. In fact, it topped the charts in 38 countries.
The Navy received a heads up from the blogosphere on Tuesday they could expect Rihanna's newest cut, and they were not disappointed. Or were they? Rihanna's star power is a force to be reckoned with, so it's no surprise enough people were curious to purchase the song for a listen, but did it make an impact? See some fan reaction below:
I hope "Work" is the worst song on Rihanna's album. Let down. I guess my expectations were too high.
