Rihanna has made her grand return with ANTI, her highly anticipated eighth studio album.
Lead single Work, featuring Drake, dropped just two days ago, going on sale just moments after Radio One gave it its UK debut. On iTunes the track was number one in 40 countries in under three hours and number one in 70 countries in less than 24 hours.
Today sees the release of ANTI on iTunes and Apple Music, following a 24 hours where the record was available only from Tidal. The album has stormed to number one on the iTunes album chart in just a few hours.
The release has lit up the internet over the last 24 hours, prompting a huge amount of praise from her fans and driving her into the top trends on Twitter. Much of the chat has centred around Same Old Mistakes, a cover of Tame Impala’s New Person, Same Old Person.
The Barbadian star lands on UK shores in June and plays six stadium shows, including Wembley stadium.
