Rihanna’s ANTi is here!

After what seemed like an eternity of teasing, Rihanna’s eight studio album is finally here! ANTi came as a surprise 13-track release on Wednesday night exclusively on Tidal.

Rihanna’s ANTi features the Drake infused single, “Work” along with writing/production contributions from The Weeknd (“Woo”), DJ Mustard (“Needed Me”), and Timberland (“Yeah, I Said It”) and was executive produced by Kanye West.

Previously released singles “American Oxygen,” “Bitch Better Have My Money,” and “FourFiveSeconds” weren’t on the album at all. With Riri confirming “Work” as the first single, it is speculated that the album was reworked later in its promotion.

The  heat of ANTi‘s promotion came in the form of a visual experience called ANTIdiary, which let users digitally explore the “ANTi mansion” and listen to track snippets prior to the release.

Pitchfork reported that bonus tracks will be released on January 29th, but until then enjoy the long awaited R8… erhhm..I mean ANTi!
