Fans have been patiently waiting for Rihanna to drop her album ANTI for some time now, especially since the songstress unveiled the cover art at a gallery in L.A. back in October. Rihanna and her team were doing a great job of building anticipation for the album over the course of several months, with a mysterious Samsung campaign and a recently announced world tour; but things took a turn when Tidal dropped the ball and leaked ANTI’s tracklist.
Only just yesterday we were given a taste of what to expect when she released her Drake collaboration “Work,” exclusively on the music streaming platform. In true Ri Ri fashion, rather than scrambling to do damage control the Bajan singer released the album at midnight via Tidal!
ANTI includes 13 tracks and will be available for download for a week on the music streaming platform, which Ri Ri is part owner of. If the album title wasn’t indication enough ANTI is unlike anything musically we’re accustomed to getting from Rihanna.
A deluxe version of the album will be released January 29th with 3 additional tracks. You can download ‘ANTI’ over at Tidal here. What are thoughts on ANTI? Could Rihanna be attempting to move in a new direction?
