The only thing we know for sure about ANTI, Rihanna’s hypothetical eighth LP, is that it has very nice album art. As Jezebel reported earlier this year, rumors of its actual release date have been swirling for what feels like forever, but it wasn’t until the cover art was revealed in October that ANTImania hit its fever pitch.
In the nearly two months since, its release has been just around the corner. First, it was rumored to be dropping the day after her gallery show, then it was moved to 2016, then it was bumped to the Friday before Thanksgiving, and later it was going to be the Friday after Thanksgiving. All these false positives—coupled with an incomprehensible and altogether disastrous collaboration with Samsung—have made ANTI a wolf, and all her fans the boy who warned his shitty, gullible town of its impending attack.
The current rumor is that ANTI will be released tomorrow, December 4, as a Tidal exclusive. But what do you think?
