Rihanna Unveils New Album 'Anti'

  /  10.07.2015

The wait is over. Rihanna’s eighth album finally has a title—Anti. During a private showing at MAMA gallery in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday night, she revealed the name and showcased the artwork.

The cover is a childhood photo of the singer on her first day of daycare. She collaborated with artist Roy Nachum, who distorted the image, added a gold crown over her eyes, and painted over in red and white. The back cover features the same photo shot from the back.

“I fell in love with it because I felt like there was another spirit, another layer to the art,” Rihanna told the crowd. “This is my favorite album cover I’ve ever done.”

It also features a poem that was written by Chloe Mitchel in braille. “The whole idea behind the braille is people who have sight are sometimes the people who are blindest,” said Ri.

During her brief chat, she also said that the album is done, but didn’t announce a release date.

So far, Anti has spawned the singles “FourFiveSeconds,” “American Oxygen,” and “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Kanye West serves as executive producer and she has collaborated with J. Cole on an untitled Deputy-produced track.
