Rihanna's fans have waited over three years for her upcoming album. Her fans were teased with several Samsung ads during the American Music Awards Sunday. The official release date of the album has not yet been revealed.
RiRi revealed the Roy Nachun designed album cover and the title in early October. The “B**** Better have my Money” singer has continued to build the hype for her upcoming release. The album will most likely spend a period of exclusivity on both the Tidal streaming service and Samsung mobile devices, before being available for the general public.
It is being reported by several outlets that the 27-year-old singer is slated to drop her album on Black Friday exclusively on Tidal. She will reportedly go for a worldwide release of her album “Anti” on Dec. 4. The date happens to be Tidal boss rapper Jay Z’s birthday.
Rihanna has released four albums in four years between 2009 and 2012. After her “Unapologetic” back in 2012, there has been no album. But, the Bajan beauty has released three singles “FourFiveSeconds,” “B**** Better Have My Money” and “American Oxygen” in these years. Her album is being executive produced by Kanye West.
