After a delightful surprise release of four fresh “Work” remixes, our chosen bad gal has reclaimed the number one spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart with her eighth studio album, Anti. Anti is Rihanna’s second career number one, and her first since 2012’s Unapologetic.
Anti was released January 28, through Roc Nation and Westbury Road, after Rih’s departure from Def Jam Recordings. Notable producers featured on the album include DJ Mustard, Jeff Bhasker and Timbaland, among many others. Anti was certified platinum two days after its release.
“Work,” the first single off the album, became Rihanna’s 14th number one single on Billboard’s Hot 100. The recently released remixes of the track include reworkings by Bad Royale, BURNS’, Lost Kings and R3hab.
Rihanna is currently out supporting the album on her Anti world tour.
