Here are five things you need to know about Rihanna’s new album:
1 – What’s it going to sound like ? Well obviously Rihanna’s sound has always been heavily rooted in pop but we all know ‘Unapologetic’ delved into a more R&B vocal… So that’s left us with a question, will we be getting more R&B sounding music or will Rihanna go back to creating more poptastic sounds?
When looking at the projects Ri has released in the last three years including ‘FourFive Seconds‘ and ‘B*tch Better Have My Money’ it appears that the new album ‘Anti’ might be a mix of both so it’s looking VERY promising for our little pop hearts, yay!
2 – Collaborations?! Okay so word on the street is that the likes of David Guetta, Ne-Yo and Sia have all contributed to the making of this album. And we are supes dupes excited about it.
3 – So RiRi released the album artwork and it looks incredible. The cover shows a young Rihanna with a black balloon in hand and a crown over her eyes with braille on it? When speaking about it Rihanna said “The whole idea behind the Braille is that people who have sight are sometimes the people who are blindest.”
4 – So when’s it being released you ask? Truth be told no one actually knows at there has been so much speculation. But currently indications are pointing towards a possible release on December 4.
5 – THERE IS A TOUR. AND YES RIHANNA IS COMING TO THE UK. That’s right kids there is an ‘Anti World Tour’ for basically all of next year and she’s going all over the place. You can see all the dates here.
So now you’re all caught up you can tweet us and tell us why you’re excited for the new Rihanna era @maximumpop!
