When Rihanna's Kanye West and Paul McCartney team-up "FourFiveSeconds" dropped in January, fans and industry insiders presumed a new Rihanna album was coming soon. After all, her last LP was in 2012 -- even 10 months ago, it had already been the longest gap between Rihanna albums ever.
Now, we may have reason to believe Rihanna's eighth album is around the corner. On Wednesday night (Oct. 7) at Los Angeles' Mama Gallery, Roy Nachum -- an Israeli artist living in New York -- debuted artwork he's designed for Rihanna's eighth studio album at a private viewing. And that wasn't all Rihanna had planned.
Sauntering into the gallery mobbed by fans and press alike, Rihanna said a few words and announced that the project officially has a title: Anti. "This is my favorite album cover I've ever done," she said to screaming fans before a black sheet covering her album art was taken down (not by her, of course: "I'm not going to climb up that ladder in these heels").
