Rihanna worked hard to achieve success with her hit single “Work,” but not nearly as hard as the rest of us will to match her earnings.

Thanks to a video from Coinage, Time Inc.’s new personal finance video company, we now know how long the average American would have to work to make the estimated $6.45 million that Rihanna earned from her collaboration with Drake.

Considering that the median wage in the U.S. is $48,098.63, it would take 134 years to eclipse the singer’s earnings from the track. And someone working for minimum wage would have to work 305 straight years without a day off to match the Grammy-winner’s Work profits.

Watch the video above.
