NEW YORK — Rihanna has released her much anticipated new album through Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service, which she co-owns.
Rihanna released “ANTI” last Thursday on the streaming service. The album was teased with the single “Work,” featuring Drake.
The standard version of her eighth album includes 13 tracks. It wasn’t clear when, or if, the album would be available on iTunes, Spotify or in stores.
Rihanna co-wrote the majority of the songs, while The Weeknd has a writing credit on the track “Woo.”
“ANTI” doesn’t include the singles Rihanna released last year, including “Bitch Better Have My Money,” ”American Oxygen” and “FourFiveSeconds,” with Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
Rihanna co-owns Tidal, which has struggled to match its competitors, along with Madonna, Beyonce, Usher and other acts.
