Rihanna has been teasing us for months with promises of a new album. Her previous album “Unapologetic” came out all the way back in 2012 and although she released some singles since then, we’ve all been eagerly anticipating her new album. She’s alluded to it multiple times but never confirmed the release date. She unveiled the cover art pretty early on, but since then, we were left waiting for the album. She even went so far as to post a picture of herself listening to the album in a pair of some pretty pricey headphones just days before it’s release, testing our patience even further.

Little did we know, Riri was preparing an awesome gift for us. She gave “ANTI” away for free to her fans by tweeting a free promo code that allowed you to listen to the album on Tidal.

The Tidal code has expired by now, but the deluxe edition of the album is now available on Apple Music with 3 additional songs: ‘Goodnight Gotham’, ‘Pose’ and ‘Sex With Me’. Isn’t that exciting?
Riri is pretty psyched herself! She’s been happily tweeting away her excitement. The album has already become No.1 in the US and 50 other countries.
