Baracksdubs is back at it again with another video featuring President Barack Obama‘s voice “singing” or “rapping” over a popular pop or rap song. This time, we can all finally find out exactly what Rihanna is singing in her hit single “Work,” with a little help from the Commander-in-Chief, of course.
“Work” is Rihanna’s 14th No. 1 hit single and when it first came out, as well as currently, many people didn’t know what she was saying on the song, some who know little about Jamaican Patois or West Indian culture even called it “gibberish.”
The song Work by Rihanna is nothing but gibberish, how does anybody like it?

Rihanna’s “work” is proof that you can literally just talk gibberish for 3/4 of a song and still kill it with a catchy beat 🙏🏽

I’m going to need all white people to stop acting like Rihanna’s singing gibberish in Work. it’s not that hard to understand, to infer

Uploaded just in time for Memorial Day, it’s amazing how accurately Baracksdubs synced Obama’s voice with the song lyrics. The dub goes perfectly with the “Work” beat as well.
In the past, Obama has covered the somewhat hard-to-understand “Panda” by Desiigner , Carly Rae Jepson’s hit “Call Me Maybe” (which garnered a whopping 47 million views since 2012), and Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ smash single “Uptown Funk”.
If you’re wondering what will happen with all the Presidential dubbing fun after POTUS leaves office soon, have no fear — they’ve dubbed other famous folks as well. Bill Clinton covered Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and Ellen Degeneres tackled Katy Perry’s “Birthday.” Maybe there’ll be a TrumpsDubs, ClintonsDubs, or SandersDubs in the near future?
