Anti has arrived. Since Unapologetic dropped in 2012, fans have waited for new music from Rihanna. After her string of 2015 non-album singles – “FourFiveSeconds,” “American Oxygen,” “Bitch Better Have My Money” – the Barbados-born singer is finally back with her first LP in over three years. Before the album found its way onto Tidal, Rihanna unleashed the Drake-featuring cut “Work,” which takes the tropical vibes of their previous collaboration “What’s My Name” as well as Drake’s own massive “Hotline Bling.” In some ways, it’s reminiscent of January’s other mega-collaboration; the one between Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar. “No More Parties In L.A.” felt intentionally old-school, unencumbered by current trends. “Work” similarly feels low-key and relaxed, forgoing an attempt to create something new to instead create something honest.
Anti is out now on Tidal – and for free download with an email address (which will also get you two free months of Tidal as well).
