TIDAL Accidentally Leaks Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’
You had one job, TIDAL.
Rihanna, who finally dropped a new single on Wednesday (Jan. 27 2016) after what felt like a trillion years of hype, was just royally screwed over by Jay Z’s streaming service after a full copy of ANTI was prematurely released on the music platform. Subscribers got quite the treat when all 13 tracks from the singer’s hotly-anticipated eighth album was made available.
Needless to say, the Navy immediately went to work — no pun intended — and took screenshots of the whole thing.

From the looks of the tracklist, previous singles “Bitch Better Have My Money” and “American Oxygen” have been nixed, while “Kiss It Better,” a song that Rihanna teased way back in 2014, makes the final cut. Drake and SZA seem to be the only collaborators featured on the album.
Rihanna’s ANTI, which is rumored to have gone through many reiterations as the album was scrapped many times, is said to premiere exclusively on TIDAL later this week. In essence, TIDAL just fucked up one of its biggest debut. Womp womp.
It’s no one wonder some people are saying that Jay Z is looking for a way out of this hot mess.
