It’s been three, three godforsaken years, since Rihanna released a full-fledged album. But, RiRi is finally back and she has a treat for you.
Her brand-new “Anti” album, which leaked earlier yesterday and then was available for download on Tidal last night, highlights a much more soft-spoken Ri. We catch her crooning about being in love (“Kiss It Better”) and, obviously, smoking weed (“James Joint”). Of course, the Barbadian singer still has a few bangers in her arsenal, like the lead single”Work” featuring Drake on the 13-track album.
We’re sure Rihanna fans and even non-fans will enjoy Ri’s newest creation, but that’s not even the best part. Ri’s feeling very generous this year. She’s allowing anyone and everyone to download “Anti” for free. Crazy, right? But, there’s a catch. There’s always a catch.
UPDATE: Ri and her crew put a 1 million cap on the free album downloads and they reached their goal. So, it looks like you’ll have to pay up if you want a copy now!
Music-lovers with android phones are able to download the album with a simple click – probably because Rihanna teamed up with Samsung to promote the album – but iPhone users have a much longer path to take. We know iPhone users want in on the free album, too, so we’re going to walk you through the steps because we’re nice people.
1. Go on your desktop and click on the link Ri posted on Twitter

2. Fill out the required fields (no, you don’t have to sign over your first born) and then click “Get Album Now”
After downloading the album to your computer, create a new folder and drag and drop the songs into it:
Then, open up iTunes > choose File > Add to Library, locate your new folder with the songs, and click Open.
Now all you have to do is connect your phone with iTunes, hit sync and voila, “Anti” is now yours!
We know that was oh-so-tedious, but now you can relax while listening to RiRi. Yay!
