Despite reports that Rihanna's long-awaited eighth album ANTI is dropping Nov. 6, a source close to the singer tells Billboard that's not the correct date.
That means it's also unlikely ANTI will be dropping the following week, as Nov. 13 will see a heated showdown between One Direction's Made In the A.M. and Justin Bieber's Purpose for the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200.
Rihanna revealed the title and cover art for her next album at a Los Angeles gallery last week. The cover, from Israeli artist Roy Nachum, shows a young Rihanna holding a balloon with a gold crown obscuring her eyes. "Sometimes the ones who have sight are the blindest," Rihanna said at the event.
