UPDATE 4/28/16: The full version of his reference track has surfaced online. You can check it out here.
Read the original story below.
Rihanna and Drake's "Work" is currently the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and though we know that PARTYNEXTDOOR penned the single, a snippet of his reference track for the song may have just hit online. The video snippets were posted by Keke Palmer on Snapchat, and though it's not confirmed to be PND, it certainly sounds like him.
It's unclear how Palmer was able to get her hands on the reference tracks, as those are something that are common in the pop world, but don't usually see the light of day. Whatever the case, PND sounds pretty great singing "Work" and it gives you a good idea of what the track would have sounded like if he had kept it to himself. Of course, Rihanna also sounds tremendous on the final version and we're sure nobody is regretting her getting the song after the steamy double video came out earlier this week. You can check out the snippets below via KanyeToThe, who ripped the clips.
