Countdown to Rihanna’s 8th Album ‘ANTI’! See Photos from the Artwork Reveal

Adesola Ade-Unuigbe




Can we finally start counting down to the release of Rihanna’s long postponed 8th studio album?

We certainly hope so.

The 27-year-old pop star held a private viewing of her album artwork – and revealed the name ‘ANTI’ on Wednesday night, October 7, in Los Angeles.

The album artwork was designed by Roy Nachum as a statement on vision and vision impairment.

Before unveiling the artwork, Rihanna shared with her fans that “This is my favorite album cover I’ve ever done.”

The cover features an image of a young Rihanna holding a black balloon, with a gold crown covering her eyes. Over the red-and-white canvas cover, a poem written by Chloe Mitchell is written in Braille.

Rihanna said after the unveiling, “Sometimes the ones who have sight are the blindest.”

While she didn’t announce an official release date, we can only hope it is around the corner.

See photos from the unveil below.

    i like her, i like her voice, i think she’s an incredibly talented ‘voice actor’ she sings with great feeling and interpretation. unlike some people who are just pop stars for showing hourglass figures and optical illusions.
    i like the album art and how their nervousness about the album is showing loool. don’t worry, you’re Riri, it’ll be ok.
    that said, bbhmm was a horrendous sound, they should actually be taxed for polluting the environment with such hellish noise. it didn’t work. i wouldn’t even use it for halloween, that’s how useless that piece of art was. God forbid such ever happen again. not since don jazzy and sister’s ‘don leave without my heart don break no no’ have i really suffered like that sonically.
    get this, i first heard it on a rickety bus on a rackety road in our rockity Naija. yes, some radio worker found it necessary to share b better have my money with the good people of Iyana Ipaja.
    if they can be so kind to not include such on the album, it will increase the likelihood that i’ll find a free download and listen to the thing. if not, it’s rihanna, she’s a star, i’ll end up hearing the stuff anyway. whatever. Anyway, love her, like, forever. mmua.

    The Album makes sense before it’s release. The BBHMM is already a hit enough to make the album sell.
