Rihanna's Anti is here and the accolades are pouring in.
About 24 hours after arriving online, the pop diva's highly-anticipated studio album has already racked up over 14 million streams. Plus, in addition to the streams, Rih Rih's album was also downloaded one million times on the service (courtesy of a download code that was given to fans). In crossing the milli mark, ANTI has now been certified platinum by RIAA for a million in sales. That makes it the first album of 2016 to go platinum in a week.
You guys legit made me the happiest girl in the world!! I'm so grateful that you appreciate the #ANTI album! It's the most rewarding feeling— Rihanna (@rihanna) January 28, 2016
As the standard album arrived out of nowhere Wednesday night (January 27), Rihanna debuted the deluxe edition of the collection last night (January 28). Three new songs made the cut, including "Goodnight Gotham," "Pose," and "Sex With Me."
Florence + The Machine's 2011 Ceremonials track "Only If For A Night" is sampled on "Goodnight Gotham," which features credits by Rihanna, C. Boggs, Paul Epworth, and Florence Welch. The track also confirms rumors that went wild last year about the singer working with Welch, thanks to this Dior promo.
ANTI features SZA ("Consideration"), Drake ("Work"), and Travis Scott ("Woo") as guest artists, while PARTYNEXTDOOR, The-Dream, DJ Mustard, Timbaland, Hit-Boy, Frank Dukes, and No I.D. are just some of the familial names in the production pool.
