Open audition in Toronto for Drake and Rihanna music video
The music video is for Rihanna's track 'Work' featuring Drake
There was a hot line in Toronto's east end Tuesday night where hundreds of dancers stood to audition for Drake and Rihanna's new music video.
An open call for professional and non-professional dancers was held in the city at Milestone Studio on Eastern Avenue near Broadview from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The casting director indicated in the ad that the video will be dancehall style. They want a total of 60 men and women for the video, ages 19-40.
"I think it will be a lot of fun. I love the style of music. I love Rihanna and Drake. I think they are both amazing artists," said Kent.
The music video is for the track Work dropped by Rihanna last week, which features Drake. It is off of her new album Anti.
"I heard the song and I heard the beat, it's a reggae vibe. I had to get into it," said one man in line.
The shoot date for the video is this Friday.
This isn't the first time Rihanna and Drake have collaborated. They've worked on past songs What's My Name? from Rihanna's 2010 album, Loud, and the title track off Drake's 2011 album, Take Care.
