ANTI Has Been Streamed More Than 13 Million Times
Rihanna’s ANTI is streaming in huge numbers on TIDAL. According to a rep for the service, the Barbadian singer’s eighth album has been streamed more than 13 millions times in the 14 hours since it was officially released. The two most-streamed songs are, according to the rep, “Work” — which was released as the lead single Wednesday morning — and “Kiss It Better,” which Rihanna first teased more than a year ago on Instagram.
TIDAL is also almost out of free downloads, after Rihanna tweeted a link earlier today. RiRi thanked her fans for all the love:
You guys legit made me the happiest girl in the world!! I’m so grateful that you appreciate the
#ANTI album! It’s the most rewarding feeling
Also of note — the free downloads are not being tracked by Billboard, which, according to the source, did not have the means to record the number of copies downloaded from TIDAL using Rihanna’s free code and count them towards the charts.
