Nobody Agrees On The Release Date Of Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ LP, But November Seems Likely
Earlier today (October 14), Hits Daily Double announced the release date of Rihanna’s long-overdue ANTI LP. According to their sources: “The album will drop on Nov. 6, a week in front of the expected chart duel between Justin Bieber and One Direction, and two weeks before Adele, thus assuring her of a #1 debut.” That logic makes sense given Rih’s traditional struggle to shift albums (she only has one chart-topper), but Billboard soon shot down the theory.
“A source close to the singer tells Billboard that’s not the correct date,” was all they had to say on the matter in an abrupt post. However, they do agree that November 13 is unlikely given the release of Purpose and Made In The A.M.. It will be interesting to see who has better information. In the meantime, The Navy can go back to listening to Unapologetic on repeat as the arrival date of ANTI is still very much up in the air.
