Rihanna's 'Anti' has been streamed more than 13 million times since its release
After months of teasing her latest album, Rihanna surprised fans by finally dropping Anti Wednesday night. Since debuting on Tidal around 9:45 p.m. ET, the album has been streamed over 13 million times in 14 hours, Tidal confirmed to EW. “Work,” the Drake-assisted lead single off Anti, and “Kiss It Better” top as the most-streamed songs.
Anti was also downloaded more than 1 million times in 14 hours, according to Tidal, after Rihanna tweeted a promo code for fans to download the album for free. The offer has since expired but Anti is available to purchase on the streaming site.
The 13-track collection doesn’t feature Rihanna’s 2015 singles “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “American Oxygen,” and “FourFiveSeconds,” the latter of which also fails to appear on collaborator Kanye West’s track list for his forthcoming album Waves. Rihanna’s latest effort comes four years after her seventh album Unapologetic, which featured hits “Stay” and “Diamonds.”
After releasing the album, Rihanna tweeted that she felt like “the happiest girl in the world. I’m so grateful that you appreciate the #ANTI album! It’s the most rewarding feeling.”
