After months of speculation, Rihanna will reportedly release her long-awaited album ANTI this week.
Sources tell Billboard that the singer’s eighth album will likely arrive as a surprise release before Friday (Jan. 29).
According to Rap-Up, ANTI was initially planned for May or June, but has been repeatedly delayed. However, earlier this week Rihanna hinted that the album was finally done, tweeting “listening to ANTI” alongside a photo of herself listening to $9,000 Dolce & Gabbana headphones.
Her new single “Work,” which reportedly features Drake, is expected to premiere Wednesday at 8 a.m. EST. She shot a video for the song earlier this month in Los Angeles.

It’s been over three years since Rihanna’s last album, 2012’s Unapologetic, the largest gap between albums in her career.
