Rihanna also teamed up with Samsung to launched a new interactive website for the project, ANTIdiary.com. When you visit the website on your smartphone you will see footage of a creepy room before a video start playing of a kid writing on the wall and another one playing on a bed. In the end of the video a young girl walked in with a crown over her head similar to ANTI album artwork.
Rihanna recently closed a $25 million deal with electronic maker Samsung making the Korean company exclusive sponsor of her album and upcoming tour.
ANTI is Rihanna’s eight studio album and has been in the works since last year. But after numerous delays and fans being kept in the dark, the project is finally seeing the light of day.
Rihanna or her camp has not confirmed the Black Friday release date for ANTI but given the current promotional push by Samsung there is a high probability that we will see the project this week.
