All Signs Point to Rihanna’s New Album Coming Out This Friday

If things go as planned, you’ll be dancing off your food coma to Anti. 

Rihanna is having a fun time building anticipation for her new album, Anti. The fever started back in July with the release of her bloody and beautiful video for “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Then, in October, she held a classy art happening to reveal the name and cover of the album. But now it’s late November, and she’s still toying with us, going so far as to make a whole website called — which allows users the virtual reality experience of walking through different rooms dressed like baby Rihanna wearing a crown. We’re collectively tired of playing around though. We’re ready for the grand finale, which, according to Hits Daily Double, may be coming on Black Friday. 

According to what we’re seeing online, Anti will reportedly be released exclusively on Jay-Z’s Tidal service this Friday, where it will remain exclusively, until it’s freed up the following week for online and retail purchase on 12/4. 

Is this gonna be the best post-turkey day/early holiday present ever, or are we gonna be left crying into the leftover mashed potatoes? Have to just wait a little while longer and see I guess.
