Robyn Rihanna Fenty, known as Rihanna was born in the Barbados, and came to New York when she was only 16 years old. She released a few hit singles early after signing with Def Jam Records including “Pon De Replay,” “SOS,” and “Unfaithful.”After an early start, Rihanna began to thrive to the point where she is today, releasing her eightth album Anti  on January 28, 2016.

Anti includes 13 tracks: Consideration, James joint, Kiss it better, Work, Desperado, Woo, Needed me, Yeah. I said it, Same ol’ mistakes, Never ending, Love on the brain, Higher, Close to you. “Work” quickly climbed the charts on iTunes, with it’s catchy chorus and Drake’s featured verse, already being #2 on the top four songs list. The album also includes “Higher,” a slower song that shows off Rihanna’s vocals.

The album’s meaning mostly centers around Rihanna’s journey through the music industry. She created “ANTIdiaRY” videos, which depicted her occult transformation through the elite music business. Her transformation is portrayed as a loss of her innocent, normal self through the process of making the music, and signing with companies and essentially becoming a whole new version of herself.
