Rihanna’s album finally has a release date, or so it seems. The pop superstar will reportedly release her long-awaited eighth LP ANTI next month.
According to industry sources via HITS Daily Double, the project will drop on Nov. 6. The date comes a week before releases from Justin Bieber, One Direction, Jeezy, and Ty Dolla $ign, and two weeks before Adele’s rumored release date.
This would be the fifth time Rihanna has released an album in November. ANTI will be her first album on her own label Westbury Road through Roc Nation. Def Jam will handle marketing and promotion.
Just last week, she announced the title ANTI and revealed the cover art during a gallery showing in Los Angeles.
The cover art, painted by Roy Nachum, shows a young Rihanna on her first day of daycare with a gold crown covering her eyes, and features braille poetry by Chloe Mitchel.
To promote the album, Rihanna will perform at “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” which will air Dec. 8 on CBS.
