The release date for Rihanna’s long-awaited eighth studio album, ANTI has yet to be announced, but one of her songwriter’s took to Twitter this week to offer an explanation of sorts.

Songwriter Glass John, who refers to Rihanna as “his wife” went on a Twitter rant on Dec. 27th where he blames Travi$ Scott for the album’s delay.

John begins,

“I’m fighting to get “Kiss It Better” to the world… But Travis Scott has been delaying it,”

and continues by tweeting,

“ME AND MY WIFE WENT IN THE STUDIO W/ CLASSIC HIT MAKER @JEFFBHASKER TO CREATE A CLASSIC ANTHEM. And fucking Travis prevented it from being her first $ingle and launching her album last year.”

John continues by alleging that the album was originally slated for a November release and then Christmas

“but Travis keeps putting doubt in her mind.”

The majority of the rant comes off as an attack on Travi$ Scott. Reps for Rihanna have declined to comment at this time. However, Scott did finally issue a response to the allegations though short and sweet. On Snapchat, the 21 year-old artist posted an image of an article regarding the accusations with the caption,

“Don’t believe this sh*t.”

While the rumor mill regarding the release of Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ album has been buzzing for the past few months, there’s still no word on an official release date. The Bajan songstress recently met with singer-songwriter Sia, apparently still shopping for songs for the highly anticipated project.

Sia shared with BBC Radio 2‘s Jo Whiley,

“She was there to listen to songs and see if there was anything that she was into. It was a business meeting for sure. She took four but I don’t know if they’ll end up [on the album].”

As the world waits on an official release date, Rihanna continues to promote the project with a partnership with Samsung and a recently announced world tour. Rihanna plans to bring along Scott, The Weeknd and Big Sean. ANTIDiaRy, a site where followers have to search for clues and keys to unlock mini-episodes featuring the songstress; are the result of the dark, mysterious, and seductive campaign with Samsung.
