Rihanna is not nomimated for any awards at this year’s ceremony, which takes placed Feb. 15 in Los Angeles, but she’s set to promote her new record. She dropped Anti, her eighth album, last week after months of anticipation. In EW’s review, Eric Renner Brown writes, “In many ways it’s her most deliberately uncommercial album yet, but don’t let the low-key THC vibes fool you: every harmony, drum beat, and transition on Anti is painstakingly finessed. And on the closing sequence of ballads — particularly the hypnotic “Love On The Brain” — she delivers some of her finest vocal moments yet.”
Earlier this week it was revealed that Lady Gaga would perform a “three or four” song tribute to rock legend David Bowie.
