Listen to a preview of “P***y Works,” that should drop in the coming days.

Before the premiere blasts off next week, Rihanna takes us on set one final time of her new video “Where Have You Been.” The Calvin Harris-produced dance single off her Talk That Talk LP is supported by a tribal-themed visual directed by Dave Myers.
