Update: Surprise! Rihanna just dropped her eighth studio album, Anti. We listened to it at least three times last night (uh, for research, of course) and can verify that it’s amazing. She’s definitely matured as an artist and found a sound that’s modern but sounds like nothing on the radio now (or maybe ever).
You can stream it on Tidal and you can download it for free, courtesy of Samsung.
Who’s ready for Rihanna’s new album? Anything other than an ecstatic hand raise means this post is not for you.
She just released the latest track from her highly anticipated album, Anti. It’s definitely got some major Caribbean influence, but also some novel electronic elements. The hook was basically made for house party and barbecue dancing (the kind you do with a drink in one hand and a carefree attitude), so this tune will probably continue to be a staple well into the spring and summer.
Drake lends his mellow voice to the medium energy tune and kind of slows things down for a minute. This is the kind of jam you cuddle up with your boo to while holding an ice tea at your friend’s annual spring cookout.
Listen to it (before it gets removed by her label) and if you manage not to at least sway to the music, you are a stronger person than we are.
