#R8 is not coming but Rihanna just announced ‘Anti’ #Rihanna #Anti
We have been waiting for what seems like decades for Rihanna’s eight studio album, #R8. However at her official album pomotional party recently in LA she announced “Anti” which will be her eight studio album. For quite a while now we have been hearing rubblings from her label and even Jay-Z that #R8 was taking so long due to Rihanna’s desire to perfect it.
Now that she has and changed the name we can expect it any day now. The album cover shows a young girl, who is probably a young Robin with her eyes covered in a crown and red paint dipping down the frame. A poem is written in braile all over the cover as well. It states:
I sometimes fear that I am misunderstood.
It is simply because what I want to say,
what I need to say, won’t be heard.
Heard in a way I so rightfully deserve.
What I choose to say is of so much substance
That people just won’t understand the depth of my message.
So my voice is not my weakness,
It is the opposite of what others are afraid of.
My voice is my suit and armor,
My shield, and all that I am.
I will comfortably breath in it, until I find the moment to be silent.
I live loudly in my mind, so many hours of the day.
The world is pin drop sound compared to the boom
That thumps and bumps against the walls of my cranium.
I live it and love it and despise it and I am entrapped in it.
So being misunderstood, I am not offended by the gesture, but honored.
If they let us…
