Album Review: ANTI by Rihanna

Three long years has passed since badgal Riri released her last album Unapologetic in 2012. Following a slew of unrelated “releases” to fill the gaps in-between (none of which even made the cut), the pressure was on to make the comeback album that everyone had been waiting for—but was it really worth the wait?

At a glance, ANTI lacks the theme and shock value her previous albums had.

Instead of focusing on blog-related tasks or PPT presentation, I end up chatting on Facebook ranting about the weather.

Bonding with friends over booze and ramen. Isn’t this how Friday nights are supposed to be spent?

Rihanna, you da one and only LSS Queen!

I love Rihanna and although I am not a die-hard fan of hers, I do love to sing and dance with her songs. Actually, I think her songs have the power to capture every listener’s attention and eventually keep it on loop until one gets tired of it. I can mention a number of awkward encounters wherein I sing out loud or dance in a public place one I hear a song of hers LOL. I’m sorry but I just can’t help it! Most of Rihanna’s songs can cause one the so-called ‘Last Song Syndrome’.

Want me to give examples? Here you go!
