Drake and Future say What A Time To Be Alive, but the more appropriate phrase is “what a time to be Rihanna.” Her album “leaked” and she decided to fully release it. With the album out, Rihanna banked $25 million from Samsung.
As she is partnered with Jay Z, Rihanna released #Anti on TIDAL and she is bringing massive traffic to their platform. Almost four years since her last album release, Rihanna was greatly missed. Now, the fans are overloading on her new music.
Making $25 million in one day wasn’t enough for Rihanna, she also took over iTunes from Adele. Her single, “Work,” featuring Drake, topped iTunes in hours and even that wasn’t enough. The album has already been streamed 1 million times, which is some form of record, surely.
