CMT called the song the “sonic love-child of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s Bang, Bang and Christina Aguilera’s Fighter for a country audience.” Work It, penned by Cherie, Mark Oakley & David Fanning, came to life in the recording studio under the wings of legendary trailblazer Dann Huff. The Huff family influence also transferred to the video set when Dann’s daughter Ashlyne choreographed the dance scenes. The video made its world broadcast premiere on The Country Network.
