The frustrating and un-ending days of uncertainty are finally behind us.
Yesterday (Jan. 25), Rihanna took to her official twitter account to tease the completion of her eagerly, eagerly anticipated eighth studio album, ANTi. “listening to ANTi,” the Barbados songstress tweeted. While the album’s official release date is still unknown, the aforementioned tweet instilled in us a certain level of hope, that indeed, the ANTi era is in full swing.
When all of the ANTi craze began, Kanye West was enlisted by Rihanna to executively produce the album. As there was little to no information set in stone about the album, West moved on to conclude his own project, SWISH.
Though he no longer had executive producer rights, West helped helm the project extensively; from collaborating with her on a few tracks to giving her advice on which songs to include (ex: Bitch Better Have My Money and not include.
From all of the other information gathered, the likes of Travi$ Scott, (songwriters) Bibi Bourelly, Kirby Lauryen, etc. :: (producers) Mike-Will-Made-It, Kuk” Harrell, Deputy, etc. also had a hand in making ANTi possible, though some of the songs may not even make it onto the album.
