Good news: Rihanna’s Anti will be released in 2015 after all. After releasing the Kanye and McCartney-penned smash single, “FourFiveSeconds”, her first single since 2012, back in January, the pop star’s eighth album feels like a long time coming. (Fun fact: from 2005 to 2012, Rihanna only didn’t release an album in 2008, and for very valid reasons.)
The wait is over this Friday, when Anti—executive produced by Kanye West—will launch exclusively on TIDAL one week ahead of a wide release on December 4.
For the album’s wide release and its imminent tour, Rihanna has inked a deal with Samsung worth $25 million. As part of the deal, Samsung launched the website ANTIdiaRY, which will provide fans insight into the star’s creative process and features snippets of new music from the album.
The official tracklist for Anti has not yet been revealed, but it will presumably include 2015 singles “FourFiveSeconds”, “American Oxygen” and “Bitch Better Have My Money”. The artwork can be seen above.
