Tidal Officially Releases Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ After Accidental Leak

Posted by | News | No Comments

Tidal Officially Releases Rihanna

Earlier today (January 27), Rihanna teased fans with the arrival of her long-awaited ANTI album. Sharing the Drake-assisted “Work” single, she suggested the full-length would arrive this week. Now, the whole thing is here.

The rollout was hardly a controlled release, however. Over at Tidal, someone accidentally made the album available early before taking it down. That was quick enough for the whole record to leak online, however, so they’ve opted to put it up again.

The 13-song release includes previously heard songs like “James Joint,” though it strangely doesn’t include the hits “FourFiveSeconds” or “BBHMM.”

If you’ve got a Tidal account, you can listen to the album here. Otherwise, ANTI is expected to arrive on other platforms soon.

Rihanna will also launch a world tour on February 26. 
 
ANTI:

 
1. Consideration (ft. SZA)
2. James Joint
3. Kiss It Better
4. Work (ft. Drake)
5. Desperado
6. Woo
7. Needed Me
8. Yeah, I Said It
9. Same Ol’ Mistakes
10. Never Ending
11. Love on the Brain
12. Higher
13. Close to You

Fetty Wap Releases His Own Line of Emojis

Fetty Wap Releases His Own Line of Emojis

Just in case those winky emojis weren’t already doing the trick, rap sensation Fetty Wap has capped off his wildly successful 2015 by releasing a pack of customized emojis.

It has been released exclusively for the Moji Keyboard app for iOS, meaning that this will be compatible with your (ahem) eye-phone. Many of the emojis consist of caricatures of the rapper’s face, and there are a few yellow smileys with just one eye (since Wap famously lost an eye to glaucoma as a child).

There are also graphics that highlight some of the musician’s favourite numbers 1738 and 300, plus ones for his songs “Trap Queen” and “My Way.” See the full array below, and go to www.fettywapemoji.com to download the pack.

Sadly, none of the emojis show the rapper with a leg cast while seated on a golden throne.
 

 

Just in time for the holidays. Get my official emoji pack exclusively on Moji Keyboard on iOS. Go to www.fettywapemoji.com to download

Prince Releases ‘HITNRUN: Phase Two’

Prince Releases

If you though the “Phase One” tag on the cover to Prince’s recent HITNRUN was an indication that the Purple One would be releasing even more music via Tidal, you were right. HITNRUN: Phase Two is now online. As with the first entry, HITNRUN: Phase Two is an exclusive LP for streaming service Tidal. If you aren’t a member, you can sample 30-second clips from the 12-song second set, which comes packaged with the preceding instalment, over here. That said, some songs should be familiar to fans. The album begins with Prince’s protest song, “Baltimore,” and the…

The rap ad, which features Chamillionaire sound-alike Aspiring Mogul, is being blasted in eight urban markets and comes alongside Carson’s surge in Republican polls.  The spot features Carson straight-talking about the issues, and is designed to better connect with African-American voters.

The ad, called “Freedom,” will air in eight urban markets, including Detroit, Houston, Miami, and Jackson, Mississippi.  Roughly $ 150,000 was committed to producing and spreading the 60-second spot, according to details shared with ABC.

Miley Cyrus Releases Surprise Free Album with the Flaming Lips

The MTV VMAs are a central part of the pop cultural zeitgeist, as is the surprise free album drop. As such, it was fair to assume that someone would deliver a top secret project to the masses. But it wasn’t Kanye West, Justin Bieber or Nicki Minaj treating their fans to a surprise on Sunday night. Instead, it was host Miley Cyrus. The long-expected release is called Miley & Her Dead Petz, and sees the performer working alongside the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, hip-hop producer/frequent collaborator Mike Will Made It, Big Sean, Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel and, perhaps most surprisingly,…
