Rihanna’s new album ANTI has only been out for a few days and already its platinum! Samsung bought one million copies of Rihanna’s album in advance to provide to their users as a free download, making it RIAA platinum approved. Samsung previously did the same when Jay Z released his album Magna Holy Grail in 2013.
ANTI was provided for listeners through Tidal and also available on iTunes. Here’s the album track list:
- Consideration ft. SZA
- James Joint
- Kiss It Better
- Work ft. Drake
- Woo ft. Travis Scott
- Needed Me
- Yeah, I Said It
- Same Ol’ Mistakes
- Never Ending
- Love On The Brain
- Close To You
The deluxe version has three additional tracks:
- Good Night Gotham
- Sex with Me
Rihanna’s first single “Work” featuring Drake from her eighth album ANTI has been IN rotation on all radio stations this since it dropped. “Work” is giving off that island girl vibe like her early sound on “Pon de Replay” in 2005.
ANTI is an album about relationships, as Riri explores what it means to be in love, to get hurt, to need someone, and to be true to yourself. On “Kiss It Better”, Riri sings about wanting to know what an ex-lover is willing to do to get back in her good graces.
After closely listening to the album you can tell this is a project that Rihanna is proud of; you can hear it in her vocals. She even begins the album with a teaser saying, “I’ve got to do things my own way, darling.”
If you haven’t heard the album yet, you should give it a listen. You won’t be disappointed!
