It’s not uncommon for superstars to wait it out between album releases, but until, well, 35 months ago, Rihanna has been one of the more prolific artists around. We’ve been waiting those 35 long months for the release of her eighth studio album, which we recently learnt was called ANTI.
Sources today have speculated that the record could be released as soon as November 6th. Although updates suggest that a source close to Rihanna has shot down the speculation saying that the 6th is not the day of celebration we were all hoping for. With mega albums Purpose by Justin Bieber, and Made in the A.M by One Direction set to drop a week later on November 13th, it seems unlikely that Rihanna would go head to head with the teen pop giants leaving us out of luck until late November.
Many have spoken about Rihanna’s perfectionist nature, so we guess it’s fairly unsurprising to hear that she’s still spending late nights in the studio working on the record – or whatever’s been holding it back. We’re hoping this is the real deal – with the unveiling of the album artwork last week, ANTI is surely just around the corner. Having already released a slew of singles – Bitch Better Have My Money, FourFiveSeconds and American Oxygen, we’re not COMPLETELY starved for new Rhi Rhi, but she sure is making is work for it.
