The pop star's Anti rollout included ANTIdiaRy, a Samsung partnership that offered download codes for fans to venture through different rooms on the road to the LP's release. The same day she debuted her Drake-assisted single "Work," she released the set on the Jay Z-powered streaming service Tidal, dishing out a limited number of complimentary download codes that were instantly redeemed.

No stranger to breaking records, Rihanna was named the top-selling digital artist of all time after selling 54 million albums and 210 million digital tracks worldwide.
