Rihanna’s highly anticipated, eighth studio album ANTI is set to be released this week.
Citing sources, Billboard reports that the album will be available this week, “likely as a surprise release before Friday.”
Regarding the sound of the album itself, one source says, “the album is more diverse than her prior releases, with a wide array of styles that move the overall product away from ‘BBHMM’ territory.”
In addition, a source told Billboard that Rihanna’s next single, featuring an unnamed OVO artist, is set to arrive at 08:00 today (January 27). Earlier this month, a preview of a Rihanna and Drake collaboration titled “Work” surfaced online, along with several behind the scenes photos of the alleged music video.
