Rihanna Reveals Title, Cover Art of Next Album


It’s been three years since Unapologetic, but while Rihanna’s next LP still doesn’t have a release date yet, it finally has a name.

Announced via (what else?) Instagram, the pop star’s eighth full-length release, previously known as simply #R8, is officially known as Anti.

The first Rihanna album to follow such an extended hiatus—from 2005 to 2012, she released an album every year except 2008—Anti will presumably include “Bitch Better Have My Money,” the singer’s most recent hit single. There’s no track list yet either, but Rihanna did post a few versions of Anti‘s cover art before resuming radio silence.

To tide us over until Anti‘s eventual release, however, RiRi hath bestowed upon us both this (kinda pro-Rachel Dolezal?) Vanity Fair interview and this flawless write-around from The Fader‘s Mary HK Choi. Just an indeterminate amount of time to go!
