The music video for Rihanna’s “Work (featuring Drake)” just reached an impressive milestone.

According to Vevo, the video crossed the 1 billion view mark.

“Work” is the fourth Rihanna video to enter such rarefied air. She previously crossed 1 billion with her own “Diamonds” and as a featured artist on Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For” and Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie.”

“Work,” which appeared on Rihanna’s 2016 album “ANTI,” was a bona fide smash. It enjoyed a multi-week reign atop the Billboard Hot 100 and also hit #1 at rhythmic and urban radio.

It boasts a 6x platinum certification from the RIAA.

Editor’s Note: Officially confirmed by Vevo, the 1.0 billion figure accounts for views on YouTube and the native Vevo platform.
