Though Rihanna has yet to announce a release date, we do have some information on the upcoming album: it was executive-produced by Kanye West and features previously released singles “Bitch Better Have My Money”, “FourFiveSeconds”, along with “American Oxygen”.
After countless teases of album artwork, title and the recent ‘ANTIdiary’ movement, Rih just launched a new component of the ANTIdiary digital experience: a digital tour of a mysterious mansion where listeners can hear snippets of the album’s tracks by “turn[ing] up the volume to hear the whispers”. Certain scenes are accessible through the ANTIDiary website ans well as revealed in a commercial during the AMAs. The clip that features Rihanna in a white outfit discovering a key that reads “R8” left behind by small children in a house.
The clip ends before discovering what that key accesses, but an Instagram account appeared called “iamthekeyholder,” which cleverly geotags various locations around the world that have significance for the album and which unlock other images on the site. There has also been a Twitter account created for “iamthekeyholder,” that teases more information on the movement.
She also just announced an upcoming tour:
