It’s probably been in the “works” for a while, but musicians Drake and Rihanna created a buzz in Toronto’s east end on Friday as the Caribbean eatery “The Real Jerk” was used as a setting for their music video “Work.”
The two music superstars began filming the video in early January and an open casting call to find backup dancers was held earlier this week.
Onlookers peered through the perimeter fencing but blue tents obscured most of the shoot.
A school bus pulled up and what looked to be the backup dancers poured out into the shoot.
A black Mercedes Benz Transport Van, reportedly carrying Rihanna showed up later in the evening.
Our Global News camera caught Drake in the passenger seat of a black Rolls Royce Wraith and captured some screams from fans who lined up to catch a glimpse of the Canadian superstar.
The two have collaborated before, previously working on the title track of Drake’s 2012 album “Take Care,” and the song “What’s my Name?” on Rihanna’s 2010 album, “Loud.”
“Work” was the first song released from Rihanna’s new album “Anti.”
