Early this month, news hit the wire that the release date for Rihanna‘s highly anticipated album ANTI would be pushed back. This was allegedly done to avoid competing with Adele‘s 25, which was unveiled last Friday (November 20th). The move might have been a wise one as Adele reportedly moved 900K units in her first day and is projected to pass the 2 Million mark in her first week. Today, Rihanna’s camp has revealed that ANTI will be available on Friday November 27th, just in time for Black Friday, America’s biggest shopping day.

As with all good news, there is a catch. ANTI will only be available via TIDAL on Black Friday and elsewhere on December 4th. Earlier this year, Rihanna took the stage alongside JAY Z, Kanye West, Alicia Keys and several other a-listers for the launch of TIDAL, and as a shareholder, it is clearly in her best interest to premiere it exclusively via the brand for the first week.

Aside from the release date, it has also been revealed that RihRih will be hitting the road this coming February on a joint tour with Travi$ Scott in North America and join The Weeknd and Big Sean for European dates. Tickets for the tour will be available for purchase on December 3rd.
