Fun yesterday could not Rihanna fans. Gift to my navy!!! #ANTI Download with code, tweeted the singer in the morning. A day after the single Work was launched (a duet with Drake), followed just out of nowhere the whole album, free download over yet. Not because Rihanna (27) suddenly was in a generous mood. The intention was that the album from today until Tidal, the streaming site Jay-Z, was listening. But the thirteen songs were put online already prematurely by a technical foul. Whether that error was or was not wanted, is not clear. RiRi would not be the first artist who works out with such a promotional stunt. The album immediately went viral through various illegal download sites, so Rihanna decided to give the album away for free. For the first 24 hours at least, as of today, the album just for sale in stores and download sites.
And that is the end of a very difficult birth. Rihanna'slast album Unapologetic dates back to November 2012, more than three years ago so. The successor was supposed to appear before the summer of 2015. When we got Rihanna last year in March spoke in New York, the single was Four Five Seconds just appeared and was the second single (with Paul McCartney and Kanye West) Bitch Better Have My Money just launched. "The album is coming, I just still do not know exactly when," assured RiRi us.
The two singles were clearly intended as a preview of the new album, but the patience of the fans was further endlessly challenged. There was a single, American Oxygen, but flopped grandiose. And when it was suddenly very quiet around the new album. Reportedly was Rihanna's label boss by the disappointing results of the singles hit slightly panicked and RiRi had been instructed to look fast even in a few hits. That took longer than expected. Even though Rihanna late October launched a promotional campaign that counted was the release of ANTI. Certainly before the end of 2015, the fans were hoping, but the New Year began without a new Rihanna album. To do so was suddenly yesterday. Free.
It was about time, because Rihanna's star was seriously on the wane. It's been a while since she had one tackle a number, and it is not exactly storm the ticket for her new world tour. That would be her on July 21 also bring Werchter Boutique. Would, for that concert is in jeopardy. Rihanna would be replaced (called Beyoncé) by another name. Officially, because there is not enough security personnel can be deployed on July 21, but there are rumors that there are only a few thousand tickets sold, not nearly enough to fill the meadow. Therefore high time for Rihanna to polish its reputation, and for that this album is more than welcome.
