Happy ANTIversary, Rihanna!
Saturday marks the one year anniversary of ANTI's release, and the 28-year-old singer couldn't help but celebrate over social media.
"It's our #ANTiversary !!!!" RiRi wrote on Twitter before sharing throwback pics of herself making the double-platinum record.
"Looking back to 1 year ago.... I released my most anticipated album to date #ANTi ....When I started making this album I never would have imagined how much of a challenge the process would be," Rihanna later added in a reflective essay. "I had no idea how it would be received, neither was that something I considered. I just wanted to make a body of work that felt right!"
"To the most beautiful, loyal fans that anyone would kill to have on their team, you were right there by my side waiting (im)patiently the entire time! To have the support of so many, with the enthusiasm that we shared for Anti felt like such a reward!" she continued. "I cannot thank you enough for loving her the way you do!"
"And to every single person that was a part of the process from sound to aesthetic, thank you and I cherish you! May the Glory be to God!" she concluded. "I actually hate long captions, I know u can't tell but i don't care! ? #ANTiversary"
Rihanna definitely has reason to celebrate. The "Work" singer is heading into next month's GRAMMYs
with eight nominations, including record of the year.
