Less than 15 hours after premiering her highly anticipated 8th studio album, Rihanna’s Anti has already hit the 1 million download mark – by taking a similar route her label boss Jay-Z did in 2013 for his Magna Carta Holy Grail album. Hit the jump.


Both Rihanna & J. Cole Dropped Surprise Albums Last Night!

Rihanna x J Cole

Wednesday, January 27 turned out to be one of the greatest days in hip-hop in like, a really, really long time. Not only did we get the most hilarious, meme-worthy beef between Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, but we got new albums from both Rihanna and J. Cole! Man, if only Drake had added Views From The 6 to the mix…the lit levels would have been unprecedented! First up was Rih with ANTI, confirming Billboard’s reports that the album would drop as a surprise this week, following the release of her Drake-assisted single “Work.” This is Rih‘s first album in over three years, following 2012’s Unapologetic. The project is available via TIDAL only right now, but according to a press release, the deluxe version will drop on Friday, featuring three bonus songs. I’m not sure if this too will be TIDAL-only, or will also be on iTunes. For now, it’s free to download within the app with a Samsung code. You can stream it now here, though. Features are only Drake and SZA, but production includes the likes of DJ Mustard, Travi$ Scott and more.

OOPS! On purpose, or intentionally; either way TIDAL revealed to the world the upcoming Rihanna (they probably paid Kanye West to take the attention off of the foul up, but it didn’t work) tracklist, and immediately deleted it from their website. Rumors were floating around that ANTI was to drop sometime next week, however, it may come sooner than that; or someone maybe losing their job. Hit the jump for more.

It seems that for Rihanna fans the wait for her highly anticipated album ‘ANTI’ is finally almost over. After several potential released dates and came and passed with still no sign of the album, and songwriter Sia revealing that Rihanna was still searching for songs at the end of last year fans were left frustrated feeling like it would never come. However, Monday (January 25th) RiRi posted a flawless selfie, wearing Napa Leather Rhinestone headphones telling fans she’s currently listening to the new album. While details about her eighth studio album still remain sparse, it only seems fitting that the album will drop sooner than later as the kick off to her ‘ANTI’ World Tour with Travi$ Scott is just one month away. Hopefully, we’ll get more hints soon. Head on over to the gallery for more.


(Photos) The Photos Leonardo DiCaprio Didn’t Want You To See: Him Kissing Rihanna In France!

Leo x Rihanna kissing

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio had ran into each other in a Paris club, and possibly made out. There were reportedly even photos of the major moment, but the agency with them said Leo’s people were blocking the sale – as there are French privacy laws that protect public figures. Apparently those laws didn’t hold too long, however, as the pics have now made their way out – and they show it all! Wonder if these two will ever become an item for real? Check out the pics in the gallery and let us know your thoughts!


Kanye West Is No Longer Executive-Producing Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’

mm

About a year ago, before we even got a title for Rihanna’s eighth studio album but were anticipating it just as much as we are now, it was reported that Kanye West would be executive-producing the project. The pair had just put out “FourFiveSeconds” together with Paul McCartney, a track that was set to live on ANTI, and Kanye revealed that had sparked the decision for him to oversee the project as whole. Unfortunately, that has changed. The underwhelming reception of not only “FourFiveSeconds” but of its follow-ups “American Oxygen” and BBHMM,” reportedly caused Rihanna to go in a totally different direction for the album, which clearly has caused some hold-ups in its release. Perhaps because they realized what they were doing wasn’t working, or perhaps because the delay interrupted Kanye’s current plans for his own album, they’ve nixed the executive-production idea all together.
