After Fox News completely lost its sh*t following Beyonce's Super Bowl performance, you'd be forgiven for thinking we'd reached peak unnecessary whiteness.

But no, far from it. Because, YouTuber Samantha Harvey decided to dedicate her time and effort into 'translating' the lyrics of Rihanna's new (killer) single Work before recording her very own stripped-down, acoustic-sounding, de-dubbed, ballad-y version.

Dry! ...Me a desert him

Nuh time to have you lurking

Him ah go act like he nuh like it

You know I dealt with you the nicest

Nuh body touch me you nuh righteous

Nuh badda, text me in a crisis

Harvey felt the need to anglicise them so us white guys wouldn't feel left out and/or excluded:

Trying to desert me

No time to have you lurking

I know you told me you don't like it

But you know I dealt with you the nicest

Nobody touching me so righteous

Nobody text me in a crisis

However, people on the internet have made good use of their wifi connection to deservedly rip the p*ss out of whitewashed versions of Beyonce and Rihanna with the hilariously deadpan hashtag #TrapCover, reversing what it sounds like when white people constantly do their 'own' versions of rap, hip hop or dancehall.
