TGJ Roundtable: Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’

Published: Saturday 30th Jan 2016 by Sam

Welcome to the latest TGJ Roundtable!

Over the years, That Grape Juice has established a distinguished voice that – whether loved or loathed – sparks discussion, debate, and on occasion drama!

Though comprised of seasoned writers who share a similar outlook on Urban Pop culture, the idiosyncrasies of the TGJ team members often lend for quite heated debates “behind the scenes.”

Now, we give you a front row seat to the show. In a format similar to ‘The View’ or ‘The Real’, TGJ editors – Sam, David, Rashad, and Joe – get real about the hottest topics in a very candid way.

Today’s roundtable topic asks each anchor about…

Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ Album


It’s imperative to first point out that Rihanna is a great Pop star. She’s stunning, compelling, and boasts a hit catalogue that keeps her competitors awake at night. 

Rihanna, however, is not an artist. At least not the type she’s been moonlighting as since this ‘ANTI’ mess began to play out. And sadly for her, on this occasion no amount of smoke and mirrors will be able to wholly distract from that. Critics have been lashing the release since its staccato roll-out and the feedback from those beyond her fanbase has been lukewarm at best. 

There are entirely too many missteps to recount, but the most glaring is the reality that Rih and her team lost sight of what makes her “work.”

We’ve ragged about her McMusic and messy antics, but in hindsight it worked…for her. Indeed, as momentary as many of her smashes have been, she’s managed to enjoy a decade and some change in the spotlight – with 13 #1’s to her name. Even though I was rarely roused, clearly something was right.

As such, I knew there was trouble ahead the moment she declared she was deviating from her formula and aiming to make a “timeless” album (a statement that is problematic in itself). Dropping ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ immediately after essentially rendered ‘ANTI’ lifeless on arrival.

The umbrella issue here is that Rihanna is reaching for a narrative that just is not hers. She isn’t a Beyonce or Adele, two of her contemporaries who are clearly taking a more classic approach to stardom. No. For me, she’s a post-modern Madonna. An enduring name, yet one that has sustained for so long by shamelessly and successfully riding trends, shocking the masses, and evolving along the way. 

It’s crucial to highlight here that when Madge made “statement” records  alaBedtime_Stories_Madonna ‘Erotica,”Bedtime Stories,’ and ‘Ray of Light,’ she committed to the cause – visually and sonically – and didn’t precede their releases with promises. She just delivered. ‘ANTI,’ on the other hand, feels made up along the way and doesn’t appear to have ever had a clear concept. Hence the end result sounds like confused contrived clutter. 

I fully expect her team to work overtime to “Olivia Pope” the situation. Eloquent press releases touting questionable successes, purchased Platinum plaques, supercharged single roll-outs (‘Kiss It Better’ please) and a whole lot more. Sadly though, for many this has already joined the likes of ‘Glitter’ and ‘Born This Way’ on the 00s list of Pop tragedies. Where exactly it places on said tally hinges on how good a job Pope & Associates do of cleaning things up.

On the upside, the best thing about ‘R8’ is that it means we’re one step closer to ‘R9.’



This is a difficult one.

On one hand I’m incredibly impressed by the risks Rihanna has taken with this project and commend her for taking as much time as she needed to complete it.

Yet on the other, I’m concerned that her decision to partner with Samsung to -dare I say- cheat her way to Platinum is going to cost her…dearly.

For, the fact remains that one million people did not purchase the album within the first 24 hours of its release and this- if Lady Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way‘ fiasco is anything to go by- only makes the gifted entertainer appear desperate and sales-thirsty when placed next to artists who move major numbers sans trickery.

I hope the album does eventually go on to sell 1 million “real” units because a great deal of effort has gone into completing it.

However, I’d be lying if I said I was disappointed that Rihanna didn’t believe in her own music enough to allow it do the selling for her.



It seems clear to me that there is a “something” (a person, a team, a component) that is missing from this campaign, as Rihanna’s career post-‘Music of the Sun’ has seemingly been completely devoid of misstep. So, to have such a messy “start, stop, start, stop” situation with ‘ANTI’ speaks to a piece of her “tried and true” formula being tampered with.

Be that as it may, while I won’t ignore the glaring pitfalls of the campaign, I’m still here for ‘ANTI.’ While on the front-end the steps taken (i.e. making the album available for free, choosing ‘Work’ as the first single) seem random, to me they simply fit the overall theme of being… ‘ANTI.’ The whole point of the era is to go against the grain of what’s expected from her artistically and commercially. If, in fact, the album does not perform as well as she’d hoped, I’m sure everyone involved in the campaign knows a) Rihanna has never been an album seller, b) after 10 years in the game it’s ok to have a flop, and c) her relevance has not diminished. As such, it won’t be hard to bounce back.

That’s the thing about risks – sometimes they pay off, sometimes they don’t (see: Madonna’s ‘Erotica,’ Beyonce’s ‘4,’ Lady Gaga’s ‘ARTPOP,’ Xtina’s ‘Back to Basics,’ and the like. It’s ok to take risks and step away from what people know and/or expect. But, regardless of how the album performs commercially, I think Rih should be proud of the body of work she’s put forth. It’s definitely a grower, but it’s also mature, timely, and proof that she’s far from a microwave artist.



Navy rejoice! Your commander has finally released ‘ANTI’. Finally.

It’s been a long time coming – a really long time – but 12 months after launching its official first single, the LP marched its way digital world this week, as did its new-first single, ‘Work.’

Though said single is already flying up the charts the globe over, something doesn’t feel right about the whole campaign. And hasn’t for some time.

To start, it’s hard to digest why the track wasn’t accompanied by a video. Indeed with VEVO being so influential these days in terms of chart rankings as well as music videos being one of the biggest tools in her arsenal, it’s difficult to decipher why an Island-spiced visual has yet to be serviced.

More broadly, the only way the “ANTI” title seems to make any sense is that it’s “ANTI-Rihanna.” Rih’s power ultimately lies in her ability is to churn out hit-sounding/made-for-radio singles and well it doesn’t seem to be the case at all with this record. Though songs such as ‘Kiss It Better’ and ‘Close To You’ could make great singles, the LP isn’t as exciting nor enticing as previous releases. What’s more, the material doesn’t even feel edgy, left field or even experimental, just bare and uninspired for the most part.

Having said that, we are still talking about the Hot 100 Queen so it wouldn’t be a surprise if one of the jams from the album caught on with radio and iTunes in a near future. ‘Kiss’ makes a great candidate – especially if re-packaged as a duet with The Weeknd (which would be genius given the tour tie-in).

Roll on #R9.

    • Taylor January 30, 2016

      Anti is the new ARTPop! ?

      • Coco January 30, 2016

        Zayn Malik pushed Work from the too spot on ITunes….next week will be even more tragic. She should take a long long break.

      • LmfaoHoe January 30, 2016

        You crazy I could for God sake listen to Artpop besides Applouse and Do What You Want. Anti —-> Artpop

      • Bey4life January 30, 2016

        Yes, nothing timeless just another filler album. Such a waste of time, hon!

    • Taylor January 30, 2016

      Adele is doing awesome without Tidal and Samsung. I guess less talented artists like Rihanna have to rely on marketing to push the album. What a tragedy…

      • Lamby January 30, 2016

        ?????? just like Gaga- album of the millennium sh*t but the fact is….generic at its best!

      • MadonnaThaDinosoaur January 30, 2016

        The least you can thank Rihanna for carrying new audience to your struggling blog site UNCLE TOM i mean SAM!

      • TheOuyonB February 1, 2016

        Adele may be doing well, but her album is nowhere close to being timeless. Underwhelming, if you ask me.

    • Im done felicia January 30, 2016

      This cokehead scams her ritarded fans to get the #1 album title. Embarrassing…

    • MadonnaThaDinosoaur January 30, 2016

      I listen to Gaga’s jazz album to sleep at night. So soothing yall!!!! ???

    • WINTZ January 31, 2016

  3. RICHIE_RICH January 30, 2016

    It’s my fav RIRi album after RR . Baby girl you did good. I think Anti promo thus far has been a MESS!!!!!! That Samsung deal is shady boots , but a smart business move.

    I give Anti 7/10!!!!

    • Ex fan January 30, 2016

      No…very “artpop-ish”. An insult to all Goats!

    • Emuahhhak January 30, 2016

      I give 3 out of 10 and I downloaded it legally. ???

      • MadonnaThaDinosoaur January 30, 2016

        Nice….me too. Downloading while taking a long crappppp!!!

      • Navyboi88 January 31, 2016

        Which was stupid she gave away a million free copies, stop being late, like you not checking for rih

    • Cupid January 30, 2016

      Yes! A brilliant business move. But no one wants to give her that credit!

  4. Cough Cough January 30, 2016

    For the most part I like the album. It’s listenable. Nothing groundbreaking but she has some songs on there I enjoy.

    • Leah January 30, 2016

      Yeeesss 2 out of 5 stars. ?

      • Cough Cough January 30, 2016

        It’s 3 out of 5 for me

  5. Tranet January 30, 2016

    Omg you guys are so pressed about Rihanna

    • Tasha January 30, 2016

      Because this album screams…desperate. Thats why b*tch ?

      • TheOuyonB February 1, 2016

        The album is solid. If you don’t like it, cool. Go listen to something else. It’s not a dance album. It’s an album of stories being told. Sorry if you can’t relate. Keep living.

  6. LmfaoHoe January 30, 2016

    Tha hell with ya opinion, the album is fab. I love it. People gotta give it a proper listen (lyrics, production, and overall message) at first I wasn’t for certain. But giving her a doubt and played the whole thing I really enjoyed it.

  7. Neliahah January 30, 2016

    I agree with Sam the most. “The umbrella issue here is that Rihanna is reaching for a narrative that just is not hers. She isn’t a Beyonce or Adele” this is exactly it, she wants to be taken srsly but she isnt a singer nor performer. She is a puppet popstar relying on a team to save her each era.

    The lesson Rihanna needs to learn is STAY IN YOUR LANE for r9 and not force trying to be someone she is not

  8. HailBeysus January 30, 2016

    Im waiting for billboard and soundscan! Im getting my life with the GP and music industry dragging this HOEEE KIIIII

  9. CT January 30, 2016

    Anti isn’t my fav album from her but it’s cute for now. Honestly I want R9 this November or maybe she will re release anti in November to boost sales…. but either way I’ll support as usual.

  10. RICHIE_RICH January 30, 2016

    I agree with all of them to a degree . I truly think Sam was being honest , without any shade. He actually gave Rihanna credit.

  11. LmfaoHoe January 30, 2016

    S** With Me, Close To You, Needed Me, Consideration, Same Ol Mistakes, Pose, James Joint (needs a longer version) and of course Kiss It Better needs videos and be released as singles asap. I bet they’ll chart too. Especially when she starts performing them live and on tour.

  12. Babeeloveee January 30, 2016

    Yess…Rihanna Anti is TRASH & the marketing is nothing but a joke.

  13. Jess January 30, 2016

    I think Anti is a nice album and I’m not even part of the Navy. People need to stop focusing on how the album rolled out and focus on the music.

    • LmfaoHoe January 30, 2016

      Thats what I’m saying, if you gave the album an honest listen without being bias like Sam and Stans it really is good for her standards. Ppl just acting crazy cause she release and did it differently. Listen to the music not sells. That’s exactly why many of our true r&b artists can’t win cause ppl worried about sells when they know damn well this ain’t the 80s, 90s, and okay you have Adele but ain’t nobody bring in huge numbers especially any other genre.

    • XXX January 30, 2016

      Rihanna made it that way. She should’ve just released it traditionally.

    • John Vidal January 30, 2016

      Who cares wha u think…Bit*h

  14. ?Queen Molly? January 30, 2016

    I appreciate the new approach she could’ve easily recorded a bunch of top 40 songs but she chose not to.. This isn’t her best album but its definitely a stand out from the rest of her albums

    Fav songs
    Kiss it better
    Same Ol mistakes
    Never ending

    Only song I dislike is higher I just can’t with it

    • #JACKIE January 30, 2016

      I can’t stand the B**** but I have to admit the album is good:
      Kiss It Better
      Yeah I said it
      Same Ol Mistakes
      Needed Me
      Love On The Brain
      James Joint

      I love ❤️

  15. ?Queen Molly? January 30, 2016

    Rihanna would be smart if she dropped R9 in November

    • CT January 30, 2016

      If I see you trying to drag rih next week im going to scalp you….. cuz your flip flopping ass cant decide if you black or white or mixed .so I know you don’t know what music you like.

      • ?Queen Molly? January 30, 2016

        People like you are the reason i would drag. Like why are you coming at me for praising your fav.

      • HailBeysus January 30, 2016

        Lay tf off Molly! Jesus some off y’all need to realise Molly is allowed to give an unbiased opinion on another artist’s work. She ain’t changed her name to I Stan Rihanna or her Avi to Rihanna. Chill and smoke a blunt. Let the girl give an honest opinion damnit! Lol

      • ?Queen Molly? January 30, 2016

        @hailbeysus thanks sis.. Its like I get criticized for everything I say on here.

      • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

        Girl! Don’t even waste your time lol

  16. LDN Chick January 30, 2016

    Like I said before. The album is Ok. Quite forgettable and nothing timeless. I can give her credit on the fact that it’s her first album that sounds like an actual body of work, not a bunch of singles thrown together. With that said, it sounds like a lot of album fillers and typical PBR&B sound that is hot right now. Not authentic . Which is all Rihanna does. Hop on bandwagon.

  17. blue January 30, 2016

    the critics are loving it first off. And at people saying she isnt this type of artist, well isnt this the point of this album? Everything about it soo anti the rihanna everyone knows, this is her changing her narrative. People keep saying she isnt an adele or beyonce type artist and they are right neither bey nor adele would ever make an album like this. She cant sing? Even the bad review praise her for her vocal performance on this album

  18. CT January 30, 2016

    I love rig but she tried it with that platinum tweet. Even I screamed. However Samsung did buy a million copies…..they shouldn’t be counted on first week sales but the album is still plat. Watch other artist start asking there albums to big companies I mean they are paid for so…..

    • RihBeyGaga January 30, 2016

      I actually think the selling of your album to a company so you still get money for albums that are going to be given away for free is a smart idea, just imagine those are just a fraction of the people who will illegally download it. Within 15 hours all one million copies were claimed so people were checking for it

  19. A&R January 30, 2016

    I’m confused. This album is awesome. TGJ, I praise y’all for being on time with post and giving quality reviews but this right here… I unsure as to why/how y’all don’t see the quality in this music. I’m not stand but I and drawn in for this album. I really think this is her best work. Of course I wanted more dance tracks but once I got over that disappointment I realized this chick just killed it. Her music is definitely edgy. Like, how could Sam say it’s not?! Bruh, this album is way left but it knocks. Again, I’m no stand but I support and like this whole album

  20. blue January 30, 2016

    that would be a terrible idea. Even anti where to redefine the term flopping, she needs to stand by her art is she is truly serious about being the type of artist she seems to want to be with this album.

  21. Antflop January 30, 2016

    Artpop era once again. She pretends she is throwing caviar but the fact is Anti is just a sandwich…. ???

  22. King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

    People are afraid and criticize the new and different. I can’t blame you guys. Your mind is so basic that anything outside the lines scares you. I get it, phuck yo opinion, phuck yo pride. *Plays the best album of the year, ANTi.*

  23. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 30, 2016

    Im actually impressed with the vocals & instrumentation on Anti, very sultry like Aliyah janet & Dc of the 90s while still being current. I just wonder howcome rih has such a hard time being Commercially successful & Artistically accessable at the SAME TIME like ADELE & BEY, her 2 biggest rivals now. It might be too little too late for rih she just released her strongest effort & noone is BUYING it.

    • blue January 30, 2016

      dont want to start an bey vs rih arguement again but both bey’s most critically praised albums have sold less than 4mil on is hardly over 3mil sold. Adele maybe but c’mon now with the bey comparison

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 30, 2016

        But it isa worthy comparison to bey. 4 just reentered itunes & anti is falling below it. Anti will not see 3 mi any time soon.

  24. #JACKIE January 30, 2016

    Enough with the Anti posts. We get it now. *plays Kiss It Better*

  25. Taylor Tori Azalea January 30, 2016

    kiiii kiii kii ki
    @this mess
    This biatch is busy tweeting a million links while her album just got passed by 4
    This whole mess minimised my respect for her and this Album
    Anyways I hope this ends in a very Gaga way

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 30, 2016

      No broad, it’s still #1. Go refresh your itunes chart, or do you not have enough data on your prepaid boost mobile phone?

      • Taylor Tori Azalea January 30, 2016

        Dismiss yourself or bey paid dust your choice

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 30, 2016

        Oh you mad that I pointed out your ignorance? Go back to you trailer park where ALL three of your faves came from

  26. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 30, 2016

    I keep hearing more about the album roll out rather than the actual content itself. Sure the campaign was messy, but this is the first album where she stepped out on her own which I love as a black woman. Therefore, it should be expected to see some hiccups. Now since no one really gave a review of the music, here’s mine. First and foremost, I am elated that Rihanna took the time to deliver a work of art that was unexpected. She presented a side to the world that us fans have seen since Rated R. Also, she made a project solely for herself. She didn’t make it for radio, the charts, other fanbases, or anyone else. This album is a testament to saying that she doesn’t want to be compared to anyone; she doesn’t want to be in the same lane with Madonna, T Swift or Katy nor Beyonce. She wants to be remembered as an artist who also happened to do pop music. Now, I must add that while I this record is growing on me, there is still something missing that I can’t quite put my finger on. I just hope that she makes “Love On the Brain” and official single, because the world needs to hear that record. Furthermore, I’d like to see what she does visually. I think it would give the general public a better insight of her vision with this project. Due to trying something different and a strong vocal performance, I’d give it a solid 7 out of 10.

    • Danzou January 30, 2016

      theres something i cant put my finger on either. I think what anti needed is some type of “pour it up” or “cockiness(love it)” type of vibe. the album had no peak which most of her albums tend to have. RR had rude boy LOUD had S&M and Only Girl Talk That Talk had We found love etc. etc. BUT what i will say is that this is the first rihanna album that i can play ALL the way through so i dont know what to think. like theres no standout “peak” in the album but for some reason i cant help but to listen from top to bottom. idk.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 30, 2016

        You’re exactly right! There’s something missing. There isn’t a peak or universal iconic song that simply makes the album. However, it’s a piece of work that I can’t stop listening to. It has this Aaliyah vibe from Yeah I Said It to Same Ol Mistakes. Her voice on Love On The Brain has me in love.

  27. blue January 30, 2016

    this is the first album that rihanna had complete control over, she wasnt under any pressure to deliver hits and this is the music she made. How is this not her? Listen to the lyrics and tell me they dont tell her story or her thoughts. Go through her old albums and tell me you cant find one or two songs on each that would fit perfectly more or less on anti. This for better or worse is the type of music i think rihanna truly enjoys making.

    • RihYonce January 30, 2016

      Exactly this album was so personal!

  28. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 30, 2016

    How exactly is the industry dragging her when she jumped from a 60 to 70 on metacritic in just 1 day? ?

    • ?Queen Molly? January 30, 2016

      How you been ?

    • blue January 30, 2016

      for that avi alone you are my fav tgj commentor ever!!!!!!! #LONGLIVEKETERINAPETROVA

    • ? January 30, 2016

      I miss you and Mark dragging each other ?? those posts were epic

  29. Fancy BISH January 30, 2016

    The only thing Rihanna can do at this point is show us SHE loves ANTI…OWN IT…stand by it, promote it, make great videos for it, and tour it in a creative way…Beyonce LOVES 4…Madonna still LOVES Erotica to this day, and blames herself (her image at the time) for getting in the way of the art…Gaga LOVES ARTPOP…chile, homegirl tried to fly away on a homemade flying dress during her promo campaign…THAT’S dedication lol…Rihanna has to own ANTI till the wheels fall off…just like a REAL ARTIST would if they truly loved their art..

  30. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 30, 2016

    The only reason why this album is even STANDOUT for rih is because of the whole “smartest-kid-in-special-ed” syndrone. Her other albums are either generic just ok or just good so its easy to top that after 3 years. But WHERE are the GARGANTUAN sales & critical acclaim to back it up??? 70 critic score is good but far cry from the 85 bey got.

  31. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 30, 2016

    Anti is still sitting @ #1 in the US & UK

    • Taqoyah January 30, 2016

      Nooo, zayn malik h**

      • blue January 30, 2016

        zayn is #1 on the single’s chart. We are talking about the album.

  32. RihYonce January 30, 2016

    Idc about other people’s opinion but this album was amazing to me , & it’s my favorite after RR, people complain because it’s not that trendy pop/trap stuff she normally does , she took a different route I’m glad that she did , ANTI slays but yes the album rollout was a mess

  33. Taylor Tori Azalea January 30, 2016

    The bandwagon just keeps on replicating
    I see a lot of people are bandwagoning now when they just like me dissed Ants and bought it illegally
    Not to mention this post and the last 6 RIHANNA posts were unnecessary but since all of them get 100 comments and above ï’ll expect atleast 60 more posts about Rihanna

  34. King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

    The last 5 songs took me on a trip, not a lot of music does that to man, album wise. I felt the beats in the first half, so for me, this is a 9/10. This reminds me of Rated R era, people wanted dance songs, but R was great. You guys will get your dance tracks on the next album, just like with Loud.

  35. Taqoyah January 30, 2016

    This album has no legs. Trust me. She sounds drunk and coke head…

    • Taylor Tori Azalea January 30, 2016

      hunty the Tea in your comment just write itself
      It’s simply because she was drunk and coke head

      • blue January 30, 2016

        oh how i hope that is true. Just imagine her with a glass of whine in her hands screaming into the mic HIGHER

  36. Justice 4 Bey January 30, 2016

    She is channelling Artpop…. ???

  37. blue January 30, 2016

    also how empowering is the fact that at just 27years old, this young black woman has just released her album on her own record label on her terms and had a tech giant like samsung foot the bill? And she holds the rights to every single note and word on the album. How many people can claim that? Why not praise that. ANTI every single one of your expections and limitations.

  38. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga January 30, 2016

    Rip RihanNO onr is buying Ain’t or whatever that mess is

    How are the ANTI TOUR tickets selling, sold out? Still selling? real tea & Receipts are needed. & didnt u check the ITUNES link in the prevmaybe my eyes are playing tricks on me but 4 is ahead of the Anti delux or maybe its just the Insulin.

    Hahahahahaha,anti is a mess.It should be illegal to fake numbers like that.Anyway its her worst yet

    It’s a shame Samsung can’t and won’t buy her 1 million downloads for her song and her remaining tour tickets
    Impatiently waits for first weak sales …..uhm I meant week

  45. Buy Sorry January 30, 2016

    This cokehead scams her ritarded fans to get the #1 album title. Embarrassing…


  46. Dev January 30, 2016

    This isn’t word peace or world poverty, its a Rihanna album…
    That being said. I think the problem is consistency throughout so it doesn’t seem like a complete body of work and more like tracks put together from (at least) three ideas of an album. Kiss it better is one hell of a track that was previewed on instagram a while ago and doesn’t disappoint in full. Same old mistake is also a favourite but seems an odd song choice to cover considering that the original only cam out last year. Work is a typical Rihanna track that would’ve faired better if it featured Mr Vegas or Beenie Man but i think was more of a last minute thought to push the project (much like Tweet did with first singles that didn’t represent the album) the rest is okay but i’m still listening.

  47. SLAYhanna January 30, 2016

    ANTI is still #1 on the ITunes albums chart in both the U.S and the U.K and has been for the past 36+ hours.


    ANTI is at 72 on Metacritic so are critics dragging her?

    The GP are taking to it as are the critics and the praise will only keep rising

    I LOVE the album and is her best for me after Rated R.

    She SLAYED.

    • Lol January 30, 2016

      She slayed because she scams her way…thats why b*tch!!!

  49. Brandys Starr January 30, 2016

    The album is decent. I dont see this era having any longevity though because she can only sell commercial stuff. Shame the rollout is distracting from the music, unlike Beyonces surpise release, it’s for all the wrong reasons And it’s all Rihannas teams fault. The whole era just seems like a Contrdiction.

  50. .:: Centurion ::. January 30, 2016

    I loved every song on ANTI. From Consideration on how Rihanna and SZA’s melodies just blended together all so beautifully and going to that “getting on peace” line, and all the way to Sēx with Me. It was an absolute home run from me. After listening to ANTI, I even didn’t care for Pop bops.

    Rihanna gets a solid 9/10.

        This is a question for both of you. Is iTunes now the new chart system? It’s a genuine question

  53. Claudette January 30, 2016

    It’s crazy how people are so focused on the “roll out” and not the music itself. Anti is Rihanna’s best work since rated R. This is the music that she wanted to do! That’s the problem; we have too many A&R’s and not enough consumers! Just enjoy the music.

  54. blue January 30, 2016

    cannot wait for the push after the grammys. I hope that even with the tour that she will promote the album and ride it into next year. Kiss it better and love on the brain could push the album with proper videos and promo

    • TakeYourInsulin January 30, 2016

  60. Danzou January 30, 2016

    ANTI is not a pop album. THats whats so hard for everyone to swallow. Its a concept album. Lets be honest, what other albums out right now sound like ANTI? Thats the point. F.uck the rollout. F.uck the charts. Rihanna has sold over 200million records. she has nothing to prove. shes doing her and this is what she came up with. i can only imagine what R9 will sound like.

      But that’s not an OFFICAL link that leads you directly to AppleStore like mine’s. Thats a third party link. Has it even been updated since it was made?. The US Itunes charts shows different. AntiSuccess is at #20 and 4 is at #15. Post a link that leads directly to Apple’s Store current top 100 album’s in the US.

      • blue January 30, 2016

        it takes a while for it to update but its legit.

      • HailBeysus January 30, 2016

        Okay ill believe you. Im still wondering tho as to why the Apple Store link says otherwise.
        @Centipied fuxk you! Nobody believes any of the shiiit that flops out your mouth. You stay using fake and forged receipts and your ass stays lying!!

      • HailBeysus January 30, 2016

        Kiiii ain’t nobody afraid of your scat feeding power bottom ass! It still wont take away from the fact that i used an OFFICAL link that lead straight to AppleStore. Unlike you using 3rd party links. Must’ve been some reason your fav was placed at #20 in that link. Its obvious she was knocked back for a bit but crawled back up hahaha!

    SCREAMING @ the fruity bottom no-life-having-āss-høe-hive lying that 4closure is above ANTI. How much do you hate Rihanna that you need to start telling people that a 5 year old album is charting higher than a newly (just 2 days) released album? Its HILARIOUS! ? ? ? ?

  68. Danzou January 30, 2016

    lets be real for the past ten years rihanna has been the standard for pop music. and now that shes released anti the rest of the industry doesnt know what to do. if people appreciate anti for what it is then the industry is about to change. beyonce rihanna jay z kanye ALWAYS change the music climate someway somehow. so therefore with huge artists like them not caring about sales or the charts the industry will have trouble with demographic sales. for example, white artists are ALWAYS biting the urban demographic(katy perry dark horse) so with huge black music artists breaking the mold for music the industry will have political trouble.

  69. HailBeysus January 30, 2016

    DEATH!!!! I post an OFFICIAL link that leads your directly to the US Apple Store. They claim something is wrong with the link. Yet none of these K** Swallowers can post a direct Apple link to The US Apple Store, instead they stay post third party links LMFAO!!!! Okay the Navy stay lying like their fav hahahahahaha

    No shade whatsoever, but…

    I’m looking at several other iTunes albums chart and it’s saying that ANTI is #1 and Kevin Gates’ ISLAH is #2. Also, the link is saying that ANTI is #1 in the U.S, the U.K, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and AUS etc.

    I’m not dismissing the link you’re posting but…

    I don’t know. Of course, I hope she’s not at #20

    • HailBeysus January 30, 2016

    Anti Rihanna

        

    Roc Nation Release Date: January 28, 2016

    After much speculation and delays, the R&B artist’s eighth full-length release was released for free on Tidal.

    Record Label: Roc Nation Genre(s): Pop/Rock


    Positive: 7 Mixed: 5 Negative: 0

    Rihanna’s most intriguing project yet, even if there’s no clear smash amongst its 13 tracks. In many ways it’s her most deliberately uncommercial album yet, but don’t let the low-key THC vibes fool you: every harmony, drum beat, and transition on Anti is painstakingly finessed.

    In the end, Anti’s tracks combine to create a picture of Rihanna at her most relatable and enthralling.

    Oh Rihanna, it was so worth the wait…. This album shows Rihanna hitting back at anyone who ever said her voice could only do certain things and showing them she can do anything she wants to. Such attitude; no apologies.

    With its sense of unease, quiet, and longing, much of Anti is unlikely to grab ears on first listen or play well to Rihanna’s broadest base of fans. But it is an interesting artistic curveball in her heretofore hits-driven career.

    This, for better or worse, is clearly the music Rihanna likes: leftfield, stoned and strange. It is Rihanna without hits. This strange album, released without warning over the internet for free, may well be a reflection of the fact that not even her own backers really expects this to be a commercial blockbuster. It is more an exercise in rebranding, transforming the hit girl into a serious artist.

    It’s hard to work out from its contents whether in a few albums’ time its author will be back to churning out neon-hued anthems or embedded even deeper into the musical leftfield, because its contents are neither the kind of unqualified success that confidently maps out a future direction or the kind of unmitigated disaster that requires her to beat a hasty retreat.

    Sadly, with Anti the intent and promise is more admirable than the end result. There’s a certain dreary joylessness to it that saps any energy the songs might possess.

    • HailBeysus January 30, 2016

      DEATH!!!!! I CANNOT ??????

    • blue January 30, 2016

      leave it to you to post the few negatives and ignore the raving reviews, which is sad seeing as the reviews are sorted from most positive to most negative. Dare you to quote the 91 score one.

    album has a universal acclaim from the user reviews, people truly loving this album.

  79. Kisses Down Low January 30, 2016

    Honestly who cares if the album is #1 on iTunes. It’s still a freaking flop. And the whole era will only be associated with that cheating ass samsung deal.

    • .:: Centurion ::. January 30, 2016

      Kelly Rowland doesn’t even have a platinum album to her name. Humbly exit left

        And she didn’t cheat and purchase her own album to go platinum either.

    • blue January 30, 2016

      whats your definition of flop? Cause it being number one actual means its at the most not flopping.

      • Kisses Down Low January 30, 2016

        A flop is someone who can only go platinum by purchasing her own s***. And we’ll see if it goes to #1 on the REAL charts. Yall acting like itunes is billboard.

      • Jewel January 30, 2016

        Samsung gave Rihanna £25 million dollar sponsership for Rihanna to PURCHASE her own album. WTF are Samsung doing with a Rihanna album? They sell TV, phones and Wasing machines.

      • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

        EXACTLY! Dumb b****
        Rihanna couldn’t sell off of her name alone. She needed a SPONSOR to purchase those units for her.
        A mind is a terrible thing to waste…

  84. AntiBeyonce January 30, 2016

    Anti is #1 on iTunes Beyhive. This post proves how broke the Beyhive is. They dont even have access to the iTunes App store. LOL

    • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

      The Hive can afford a $15.99 album.
      Meanwhile, Rihanna is handing out albums to you reverse cross dressers FOR FREE.

      • AntiBeyonce January 30, 2016

        Don’t you mean $5.99? Isn’t that why Trannnyonce’s 4Flop entered the iTunes chart? Isn’t it why Trannnyonce flops every era and re-enters the charts after discounts are made? LOOOOOOOOOOL

      • Jewel January 30, 2016

        But didn’t Rihanna sell rated R for $3.99 the first week it was released and it still didn’t go #1 lol

      • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

        Self titled debuted at $15.99 ya big dummy.
        Even if that wasn’t the case, Beyonce never has to dish out her albums FOR FREE.
        Your broke bankrupt fave did *sips tea*

    • HailBeysus January 30, 2016

      Lmao what a joke you are anyone can have access to Itunes from any computer or mobile device you just cant listen or watch the content. I think you need to head back to school chawld!
      Death @calling the Hive broke when Hoeanna understood the struggle of her slavie so she let Samsung buy 1 million of her albums to give away because we all know she was afraid of flopping. Is Anti world tour sold out yet??? Cause i recall Beyonce’s shows selling out in minutes with the CREDIT CARD EXCLUSIVES for fans. She added 55 dates due to demand. With no new music circulating. What about Hoeanna,

    Cheaters can NEVER win

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

      The words of a sore loser. How’s your b***?

      • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

        Considering how Rihanna bought 1 million of her own albums as a ploy to save face, she’d be the sore loser.
        Actually Anti is a synonym for SORE LOSER

  93. Mariah The Legend January 30, 2016

    poor tyler. he went from “Mariah The Legend/LB” to “Mariah Tye Legend/Mark111” to “Mariah The Legend/Centurion”. LMFAOOOOOOOOO. at this point I feel sorry for him. poor thing gets dragged by the Navi almost everyday. LOL

    • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

      Lol You’re still duckin and dodging like a little punk ass b****.
      Side posting won’t help you avoid this fade.

      • Mariah The Legend January 30, 2016

        LOOOL. why would I talk with a lesser? I’m sorry but the blessed don’t talk with the pressed.

      • HailBeysus January 30, 2016


      • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

        Kiii that b**** stays jacking my punch lines too! She’s using the same phrases that we drag her ass with lol.
        She’s a liar and a fraud just like Rihanna.

      • HailBeysus January 30, 2016

        Lmfao!!! That bitxh stays lying and getting dragged. Its so desperate for some relevancy it went as far as SPAMMING TGJ with a dumbass Survey and begged everyone to vote. Now its stealing Hive members punch lines to get some likes and be relevant haha! It probably only got 20 votes on that survey. Either it should be happy, thats a definite step up from The all Mighty Centipied getting 6 hits in 4 hours on its amazing website KIII ???????

  94. King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

    The pest are still trying. “She need Samsung to buy her albums”, buy as in Jay-Z has to buy the licensing rights to Master Sony in order to keep Beyonces and the rest of Sony artist (Ciara falls under there as well) on Tidal? Some queen. Destiny’s Child can’t even tour using their name because Matthew owns it. Lol
    And clearly the album is selling because it’s #1 on iTunes and in over 30 countries. Apple and Samsung are rivals, so are Tidal and Apple Music. So the downloads has nothing to do with it topping the iTunes chart. ?

    • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

      Ummm BigBird, Centurion, Mariah the Legend, or whoever tf you are!
      I suggest that you hide those dry edges of yours. Because you’re about to receive 2nd, 3rd, and 4th degree burns from this scalping that I’m about to give you.

      • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

        Do you have an original thought in your pea sized brain ?
        First you jack Career Enders drags, now you’re jacking LooseBooty/LoveBirds all as an attempt to throw shade….
        Keep my name out of that beef sucker of yours.

  95. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 30, 2016

    Rihanna single handedly saved tidal. She won this era and got the coins

    • Jemina Nelson January 30, 2016


  96. King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

    Even the Cutters are mad. Talking about some if Artpop. No one was talking about Artpop in 2013 and no one IA taking about it in 2016. It wasn’t platinum then or now.

    • Keri Qween January 30, 2016


      Gaga is washed up where did her delusional fans come from? I haven’t seen one in years. Gaga peaked a long time ago Rih is going on a decade long career

  97. Navy Nixon January 30, 2016

    Poor Beyhive. Tell us why you mad!!!! *sips tea*

  98. Barb B**** January 30, 2016

    This is her artpop era. She knew she was going to flop so she bought the album herself. I see you Rih!

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

      But even Artpop outsold The D*** Print. Didn’t Nicki post all the stream counts and called them sales? Is she still waiting for that platinum plaque?

      • Barb B**** January 30, 2016

        I know she’s not purchasing it herself that’s for sure. #RIHFRAUD.

      • King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

        Mad cause Beats and Miscato didn’t buy any of icki’s albums? Your fave is an employee of Lil Wayne and he’s Baby’s slave. So sit and wait for TPP to go Platinum. (which is never)

      • Barb B**** January 30, 2016

        ZZzzzzzzzz. #RIHFRAUD.

    • LmfaoHoe January 30, 2016

      How she purchased her album if she was given 25 million dollars including a half a million of that 25 came from Samsung.

      • Barb B**** January 30, 2016

        Her team spent that money on buying her album so she could give it away for free and mask the flop. But it hasn’t masked anything, just exposed her as a desperate fraud who can’t face flopping. They could’ve spent it on anything. Singing lessons, dancing lessons, drug therapy.You can do a lot with that money kiii.

  99. JustineSkyeLOVESRihannaV14 January 30, 2016

    Why Is Tyler Here? Wasn’t It Trolling As A GaGa Stan? Molly Dragged Your Bum Ass You Should Just Leave You’re More Obsessed With Rihanna Than SlayHive. I Bet You Are Slayhive! I AM SCREAMING!!!!!

    • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

      Nobody even sent for your old insignificant ass.
      Shouldnt you be somewhere looking for your misplaced AARP CARD?

      • JustineSkyeLOVESRihannaV14 January 30, 2016

        I bet you look like a Walking Dead extra.
        Lol don’t worry about wtf I’m doing you old ass h**.

  100. Barb B**** January 30, 2016

    Her fans need to give up with the essays of excuses trying to make everyone seem mad. Everyone can see through this fraudulent struggle era.

    Struggle single, struggle tour and I’m sure struggle album sales. I thought this was the black maddoana? Biggest pop star in the world according to fans.

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 30, 2016

      Enough about Nicki.

  101. Barb B**** January 30, 2016

    Why is fagg111 seething and stalking all my comments though lol. Must be hitting a nerve…

    • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

      • Barb B**** January 30, 2016

        @Tyler they are so pressed over you. You should open a fan club.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 30, 2016

        My 2014 name was @HBIC_MamaPope you dumb c*** FLEANAVY/RIMJOB, not Olivia. Even if it was, it’s a fake character from a TV show and plenty of people quote Olivia Pope because she’s THAT bittch! Just like moi, since you’re still d*ckriding me to get attention.

    • JustineSkyeLOVESRihannaV14 January 30, 2016

      Rima Tell The Tea Bih!!!!! ???????

  104. JustineSkyeLOVESRihannaV14 January 30, 2016

    But @Tyleecia You Can’t Say Rihanna Is A W***** When Your Own Mother Left Her Walls During The Civil Rights Movement. I Heard She Was An Uncle Tom, She Turned Her Back Towards Black People For White Dıck. IM SCREAMING!!!!!!! Navy Tyleecia Is A Kii!!!!!!!!!

      • Tyler Makiavelli January 30, 2016

        The irony! B**** yo mama is such a h** that she doesn’t even have a C Section scar. She has a zipper on her stomach for convenience.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 30, 2016

        I’m HOLLERING! What pathetic shantytown-dwelling hœ created that JustinTimberWALLS account anyways, it literally popped out of nowhere and makes random appearances. It sucks up the nazi’s dried up têsticcles searching for s3men droplets to gain relevancy on the comment section, and YET none of those hœs ever respond. I’m here tho, and I BET you won’t try me!

  105. HailBeysus January 30, 2016

    Lmao the Seamen Swallowers are so pressedt over Tyler! Poor things are giving it their all with the dry shade. All we’re seeing and hearing is a*** infested K** Gurgling down their throats ????

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 30, 2016

      SCREAMING! these hœs are literally handing their nappy wig closures to Tyler. And as usual dem hœs stay mentioning me when they think I’m not active, like I won’t appear out-of-nowhere and drag them to hell and back.

  106. briano 1 January 30, 2016

    Kiss it better baby…

  107. JanStan January 30, 2016

    Don’t yall EVER compare Artpop to this embarrassmnet of a rollout. RegardelEss of its commercial success at least Gaga is proud of her work. She still talks about it and celebrated it on its 1 year anniversary. This ho on the other hand talked about timeless music and CUT THREE OF THE SONGS THAT SHE RELEASED AS SINGLES. #AntiPride

  108. briano 1 January 30, 2016

    Ri is numero uno

  109. RealTalkBSWalk January 30, 2016

    I actually think the album is good, u really have to put everything aside and really get into the music, its a good album

  110. Rosie January 30, 2016

    Who cares
    Why is HDD being so slow with the predictions. They must’ve been waiting for gaytrl to go back up. Usually they come in Saturday afternoon.

  111. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 30, 2016

    I think it’s HILARIOUS that this shítfaced clītless Justin slave hœ starts all of his comments with ‘Hi Navy!’, and yet none of it’s stanbase will openly claim it. Furthermore the fact that Rimjob’s ASSistant/RihNazi is trying to spill fake tea, even though it is clearly wetting itself and hiding from me. I’ll drag u slaves by your wombs 😆

    • Rosie January 30, 2016

      NONE of them even acknowledge it just like no one acknowledges Hoestine outside of Instagram, like:
      On & On
      #22 Mozambique

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 30, 2016

        LMAO The people on here are weird af, and these random b*tches pop out of nowhere and start mentioning the RELEVANT commentators to get some shine. Lol how is this b**** gonna come for anyone when it stans for a IG microwavable hœ with grape soda hair.

      • Rosie January 31, 2016

        and the thing is it can’t even be successful at being an IG thot, dead at this basic b**** having less than 700K followers. Literally every typical IG model except for it has over a million.
        Surprised Atlantic hasn’t dropped it yet.

      • Rosie January 31, 2016

        And she’s not even that interesting looking, she looks like every other slightly above average black girl in my city
        Probably why Halsey has over double the amount of followers (and growing)

  112. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 30, 2016

    Just finished listening to ANTI. Love on the Brain” and “Higher” are exceptional. There are 3 other cute tracks (jamesjoint kiss better & yeah i said it) but that it just CUTE nothing special. After listening to higOTB (the best by far) i thot it wuld be her best album but its her worse since TTT. the rest of the album might as well be CHRIS BROWN OR TINASHE or even CERROR. This wont even outsell PISSPRINT (ww yes but not) in the States.

  113. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 30, 2016

    Oops i forgot to add Close to You as another CUTE one. So that make half the album good and the other half filler. Another failure for Rihfund Those first week sales & ticket receipts are gonna be Epic, lmao. Woo consideration work pose gotham etc are all Filth, i expected better off 2 years of recording. Lmao @ desperado. INDEED.

  114. Mariah The Legend January 31, 2016

    poor Tyler gettting dragged again. this is becoming a weekly thing now. LMFAOOOOOOOOO

  115. LOL January 31, 2016

    Meanwhile new beyonce music and new Mariah news (world records book)

  116. Anon January 31, 2016

    Sam never misses a beat when it comes to dissing Rihanna. I’m not a huge fan of hers but damn I hate seeing a Rihanna topic with Sam as the poster because it’s always negative.

  117. Maxamillian February 1, 2016

    The difference between Rihanna and Madonna i that Madonna has a brain and is a great performer…She had to be to stand up to MJ and Prince in the 80’s. That was why she is successful…She tried hard to be one of the kings and actually surpassed both of them. Yes they are more talented naturally, but Madonna is smart. She didn’t become a recluse or let fame get to her head…Or become a drug addicted p******** (sorry, but I care for children).
