All hail Rihanna, the queen who slays everything she does, even with the artwork for her upcoming studio album.

Several lucky fans and music journalists were recently invited to a party that the Barbadian pop star hosted at a Los Angeles gallery space.

During the party, Rihanna surprised everyone by unveiling the new title and the artwork of her new album.


R8 Rihanna's New Album

Previously referred to as “R8”, the new album is now retitled “ANTI”.

It is her 8th full-length album, but also her first album since releasing “Unapologetic” in 2012. She collaborated with contemporary artist Roy Nachum for the artwork and the interior artwork of her album also features poetry by Chloe Mitchell inscribed in Braille.

Check out some tweets about the event and the artwork below:

The announcement came after The FADER cover star dropped the badass “B*tch Better Have My Money” music video. It was also recently confirmed that her collaborations with PUMA have materialised.

No release date is set for the album yet, but her collaborative track with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, “FourFiveSeconds”, will be featured in it.
