Rihanna Readying Christmas Day Release For ‘ANTI’?

Published: Wednesday 23rd Dec 2015 by Sam



Rihanna has been headline news for much of 2015…for all the wrong reasons.

The chaos surrounding her serially delayed album has been the subject of ample debate, the lion-share of which has questioned her relevancy in the marketplace.

But could Team Rih be aiming for the ultimate turn-around in a mere matter of days?

Details below…

In a curious case of Tweet and Delete, Australian morning series ‘The Today Show’ posted the following message seemingly confirming a Christmas Day release for ‘ANTI.’


As anyone who’s followed the debacle will note, a number of “tentative” release dates have come and gone without being honored.

Yet, this latest date is particularly interesting for a variety of reasons, including the fact her nonsensical Samsung countdown has almost climaxed, Australia is several hours ahead of many Western regions hence it’s entirely plausible the show could have intel from Rih’s localised label.

Time will tell. But, is a Christmas Day drop enough to right the wrongs of a campaign so tattered and tarnished?

Your thoughts?

    It better be “Timeless”

    Lovebird says:

    Janet Jackson may have had her most iconic era after 4 albums but Ray of Light > anything Janet Jackson has ever and will ever release.

    In fact in the whole 90s era, there’s not a single album that comes close to Madonna’s Ray of light in terms of quality, production and impact. This is why Janet, despite having more talent than Madonna lost to her and is also why Beyonce will lose to Rihanna.

    As Rated R proved, when it comes to a quality project, Rihanna shits on Beyonce any day and Rihanna’s Ray of light is coming, I cannot wait for it.

      Talents always fall at no. 2.

  2. Bb8345 December 23, 2015

    I think Rihanna is messing herself up! I don’t know when she’s releasing this album but if stories keeps coming out saying it’s getting released and it’s not, people will become less interested. I rather her come out and tell her fans that the album isn’t done

  3. Slay_Hive December 23, 2015

    lmaooo I’ll believe it when i see it!!

  4. HailBeysus December 23, 2015

    I give her until the end of this decade and she’ll be adding Anti-Singles to that list Kiii!!!

  5. #JACKIE December 23, 2015

    If she doesn’t release on Christmas, I’m dragging!

    • Spilling all the tea December 23, 2015

      Shut your ugly ass up. B**** you’re a Ciara stan, you can’t sit with us. Bey, Rih>>>C-Flop.

      • HailBeysus December 23, 2015

        Shut yo ass up!! Ill give a C stan dragging credit over a Ri stan any day! At least the C-Squad remain loyal to their fav and don’t need to constantly jump behind another’s success to try and throw shade!

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

        @Spilling All Tea
        We know what you’re trying to do. We were born at night, not last night.

        *Claps hands*

      • Spilling all the tea December 23, 2015

        I won’t even come for your punk ass, because you stan for my girl Bey. So i’ll leave it at that.

      • Spilling all the tea December 23, 2015

        Tyler, what i’i’m I trying to do..please. I can’t stand the Z Squad, and the #1 reason for that is, “They stay coming for artist who are a million times more successful then their flop fav”.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

        @Spilling the Tea
        Thought u were trying to cause a stan war at 1st but I feel it! I dont have any beef with u.

      • Spilling all the tea December 23, 2015

        @ Tyler, it’s no problem, I don’t have any qualms with you either.

      • #JACKIE December 23, 2015

        Ciara RELEASED her album. When will Rih?

      • Spilling all the tea December 23, 2015

        Whenever she’s ready b****. Now go count Ciara’s flop single’s & album’s.

      • Rihboy December 24, 2015

        But the c squad stay jumping behind bey or Janet when their faces fall short. The navy don’t jump behind nobody. @ hailbeysus who is probably a squad trolling. Bye boo. I don’t Stan for nobody but Rihanna on here. Nobody else catalogue pleases me but Brandys and hers. So sit.

      • Daniel Johnson December 24, 2015

        Don’t come for cici
        Has Rihanna had a hit this year I think not h**

        Team Beyonce
        Team Ciara
        Team adele

    • Quinton251 AKA Lil Wayne Stan December 23, 2015

      You mean attempt to drag and them get clocked?

      • Nicki Minaj thee ONLY QB December 23, 2015

        Queen Nicki will destroy Theifyonce, Ri?Anna, ?Error then bring D******** back to life just to destroy her back to death with the sales of her next album watch.

      • HailBeysus December 24, 2015

        You can remove yourself from replying to me! The Navy stay jumping ship to swim behind others to fail at throwing shade at The Queen. Maybe you don’t do it but clearly in every TGJ post The Navy is Riding hard behind Adele and Taylor to try and shade! Also since i’ve come to this site i haven’t even seen the C-Squad jump behind others. If they do they ain’t doing it as frequent as The Navy! Bye bitxh its clear im not the only one who thinks this way!

  6. Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

    Self titled and Pink Friday are the ONLY albums, from a black female artist, that have gone MULTIPLATINUM this decade.
    When was the last time Rihanna went multiplatnium? #9YearsAgo

    • SWISH December 23, 2015

      you hive members love to isolate U.S. and use them as “drags” lmao

      • SWISH December 23, 2015

        U.S. sales*

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

        And you Navy members love to deflect from the fact that your fave is currently flopping.

      • HailBeysus December 23, 2015

        Bitxh quit playing victim and telling lies! The Navy stag using the U.S hits tk try and drag Bey! Gosh the Navy on TGJ are weak af!! Y’all need to gather some of them Twitter and FB Navy because they do much better than these fake ass stans!!

    • EVE of Destruction December 23, 2015

      Pink Friday Multiplatinum in the US? It’s still platinum boo. Try again.

      • SWISH December 23, 2015

        el eaux el

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

        WRONG Pink Friday has sold OVER 2 million in the US alone. You thought you knew but you didnt!

    • Nicki Minaj thee ONLY QB December 23, 2015

      Shut up Tyler Makiavelli don’t ever say Queen Nicki’s name in the same sentence as Theifyonce.

    • Rory December 24, 2015

      Wait…. Did you forget that LOUD is STILL the best selling worldwide album by a black female this decade?? Lol. I’m guessing that you’re referring to US sales only. Because Loud is at 1.8 million in the US but has outsold both of those albums you named worldwide.

      • HailBeysus December 24, 2015

        And Dangerously In Love has outsold everyone of Rihanna’s Albums KIII!!!

  7. IG: @mixedboy December 23, 2015

    I can’t wait. SLAY RIRI

  8. REAL TALK December 23, 2015

    Whenever you’re ready Rih! I’m excited!

  9. LadyB December 23, 2015

    Does anyone care anymore? Just asking, no shade.

    • blue December 23, 2015

      you cared enough to click on the post.

  10. LadyB December 23, 2015

    Nope. no one cares. it’s a wrap, cheese sandwich.

  11. Swiftie Stan & Riri Lover December 23, 2015


    I cannot wait!

    Although I am a little bit skeptical given the fact that Rihanna, herself, or anyone prominent from her team have officially announced a release date, I still cant wait to hear and have it when it finally comes.

    And NAAAWWWT the Crispy Negro above (Tyler Orangutan) copying and pasting the Navy’s drags to use against her, but why am I suprised… These thieves stan for a legit theif so… LMAO.


    • HailBeysus December 23, 2015

      Lmao the Navy’s drag… You mean Centipieds drag! Y’all was paying his hastags dust until I flipped a bitxh and brought up Thotannas last album Thotanna released to go multiplatinum! Gurl bye with the lies!!

  12. Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

    “And NAAAWWWT the Crispy Negro above (Tyler Orangutan) ”

    Orangutan? Burn in hell you pale genetic defect.

  13. Black power December 23, 2015

    Samantha is sooooo pressed for this damn album she’ll post anything she see’s online regarding it.

    I highly doubt it’ll be released she hasn’t even unlocked R7

  14. Swiftie Stan & Riri Lover December 23, 2015

    “Pale Genetic Defect”?

    Don’t you have a house to and go and rob or something? I know you live on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd but surely their are homes still available for taking.

    When you’re done, go and comb that goat’s wool growing from your scalp that you call… hair!

    K. Thanks.

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

      Don’t you have a few church’s to go shoot up? Or would you prefer a theater, a school perhaps?

      • Slay_Hive December 23, 2015

        LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO I CAN NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Danzou December 23, 2015

      I was waiting for a white person like you to show up. I’ll have you know that it’s been scientifically proven that African people are the first known humans to touch this earth. It must hurt to know that your entire race is genetically recessive and will eventually be eliminated by natural selection. So while I comb my hair you worry about that you idiot.

  15. No favs, just here for the music December 23, 2015


  16. LadyB December 23, 2015

    Tyler got these dogs mad. awwww po dat!! lmaoo

  17. wth December 23, 2015

    who sells on christmas? anybody ever did that? what this’ about? yo… sam gone be hungry? stacking pennies tho. like it? 😀

    • Absolved December 24, 2015

      “Who sells on christmas?”


      Seriously. What kind of dumb move is releasing on Christmas day? The stores are all closed and everyone is shopped out and therefore not in a haste to buy anything online. The CORRECT move would have been to release this flop-in-the-making album last Friday — the week BEFORE Christmas, for last minute shoppers. Idiot. Rihanna has a head the size of a missile, but not a brain cell in it.

      • Faf December 25, 2015

        She not releasing its midnight maybe New Year’s Day ?

  18. Slay_Hive December 23, 2015

    lmaoo the navy is so damn weak!

  19. Swiftie Stan & Riri Lover December 23, 2015

    Regardless, it’s not my people getting reprimanded to the level of you savages!

    Haven’t the cops gotten a hold of you yet?

    Awww… Maybe someday soon!

    Combed your hair yet… or are you too busy bleaching? Ya know, not everybody can be as light-skinned and gorgeous as your fave! I.understand the hurt. #PoorThing

    • Danzou December 23, 2015

      You need not worry whether or not the cops have gotten a hold of us. You need to be worried about when the gene pool is gonna finally extinguish white people once and for all. You can dish out as many derogatory statements as you like but genetics don’t lie. You’re a genetically recessive mistake that doesn’t belong here and deep down inside you know it. And that’s exactly where the racism stems from. Your ego crumbles at the mere fact that your very DNA is a mistake that nature made. Your race has only survived this long due to white supremacy and racism amongst other systems set up to keep your kind at an advantage over people of color. The next time you come for my race, you’d better bring some receipts with you. Punk ass b.itch.

  20. Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

    @Swiftie Stan &Riri Lover
    “Regardless, it’s not my people getting reprimanded to the level of you savages”

    PAUSE! White people have oppressed almost every race on this planet and you think that s*** is funny?

  21. Selenator December 23, 2015

    Lol there’s a post like this every other week. No one releases on Christmas. Idk how that would work out for her. I can see a New Years release or something. Maybe a single on Christmas since its been almost a year since the last one. She needs to put out another single before she tries to drop the album. FourFiveSeconds and BBHMM were on opposite ends of the spectrum and have no cohesiveness and American Oxygen was forgotten. She needs to give us a taste about what this album is really about.

  22. Swiftie Stan & Riri Lover December 23, 2015

    “Oppressed every race on this planet”…


    Go and take B.A to a “Black Lives Matter” rally or a “Black Panther” meeting or a protest in South Compton where people actually care because I don’t nor do the wider majority of the United States of America.

    Or maybe write a letter to Barack Obama, hopefully he’ll sympathise with you.

    *Toodles* 😉

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

      What are you going to do if I don’t, shoot me to death? Or would you conduct a lynching?
      Honey, this is 2015 not 1815. You dont OWN me.

    • Selenator December 23, 2015

      Looooooool. You are trying too hard to troll sis. Go spend time with your family.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

        LOL That s**** bank baby doesnt have a family . That’s why its sooo mad.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

        *spirm bank*

      • Absolved December 24, 2015

        The problem with this dunce is that his straight-out-of-Deliverance looking ass has TOO MUCH family. You know it’s bad when his mom had to go on Maury to determine who (between her father and her brother) was the one to sire little Corky Jethro. Maybe that’s why he’s into the likes of Rihanna and Taylor Swift. No one with DNA chromosomes that don’t exceed the 50% mark from a single side would be. Ha.

  23. Slay_Hive December 23, 2015

    How can you be a fan of rihanna’s and be a racist?? lmaooooo The navy is full of nut jobs honey. I can’t… But her trailer trash busted twinky addicted bottom fans are the only ones still buying her wack $1 singles. Those ebt cash benefits come in handy. I think you can even swipe the card like a debit card now. hmm Either way, they’ll be the 35k buyers first week. lmaoooo

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

      let the church say AMEN!
      I am coffin sharp and dead right now LOL

  24. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 23, 2015

    Rihsceduled releasing ANTICHRIST on CHRISTMAS… oh the irony. It still wont stop Fist Brown from beating her. Pun intended.

  25. @JanetCIARA_ December 23, 2015

    Who cares…. Although it’d be predicted, due to the album title…. “AntiChrist” being released on Christmas may have been what they were originally going for all along seeing how she actually hates Christians and anything to do with Jesus.
    It would come off contrived and calculated.

  26. Swiftie Stan & Riri Lover December 23, 2015

    This Dumb Chimpanzee just will not let it go.

    I truly have no use for you… and neither does the overall U.S Government unfortunately.

    I’ll awake another day drenched in wonderful.white privilege and you’ll awake a… well, you know what you are. LMAO.

    MWAH! 😉

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 23, 2015

      Sorry, but the blessed don’t beef with the miserable. Besides, the REAL majority knows that white people have been responsible for many genocides, atrocities and oppression around the WORLD. So by all means proceed….

    • Danzou December 23, 2015

      Somebody please get this pasty trash off of this thread.

  27. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 23, 2015

    Why is thotanna embarassing herself again… she knows she cant sell with holiday sales hits & overexposure. Rihfunded dismal first wk #s of 98k wont even be enough to land #2. Justins 5th week will outsell ANTISOCIALS 1st kii. Do ppl even BUY albums on christmas day???

    • james227 December 23, 2015

      Heard she kept pushing it back because the songs wasn’t good. Bet she does Chris Brown numbers because with Adele around people will get Rihanna’s songs for free just as they did Chris.

    I would say the same about yours but it’d be better if you at least knee both of them firstly, right? I could be wrong however.

  38. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans December 23, 2015

    I’ll be gracious enough to remember that I’m a STAN of hers, so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and the DEADLINE of releasing on Tidal by December 31, 2015. If that album is still not available via any format by that date, then I don’t know what to do. The tour starts in late February and I NEED enough time to memorize ALL of the song lyrics in time for my shows because I REFUSE to look stupid close to the stage Mumbling and humming lyrics that I don’t know to songs I should’ve BEEN HEARD YEARS AGO.

  39. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 23, 2015

    ROYALTY- critic score (59)
    UNA critic score -61

    Lmao.. only the struggle

    Self titled review: “Beyoncé is a stronger personal statement than Magna Carta… Holy Grail, less self-indulg ent than The 20/20 Experience, and (in its own way) as dark and confrontational as Yeezus.”85 >>> 61.

    NO WONDER its taking Rihfund so long with this “TIMELESS RECORD” she calls ANTI.

    • blue December 24, 2015

      and 2 years later nobody can recall a single track on that 85 score album… Your point was?

  49. Juan1n4Mil1i0n December 24, 2015

    I’m here for Rihanna, but an album title “Anti” coming out on Christmas (our dear Saviors birth) is rather blasphemous…

  50. ~The Arcade~ December 24, 2015

    But doesn’t she have like 2 more doors to open in her Samsung commercial; in conjuction with the R8 hype?

    She has definitely focused on everything except the music itself… she’s more concerned with the image than the music smh

  51. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 24, 2015

    The only way this little ANTIDIARY gimmick will make ANY sense is if room 8 is actually the VIDEO for the “first single”. Then release on new years… not that it was ever the plan to release in 2016 (becuz of Adele) but atleast it will give it more LEGROOM to flop and can try blaming poor sales on ANTIs refusal to be PRO.
