Rest assured, there is new music on the way.
When Rihanna announced her world tour on Monday, we were ecstatic! And confused.
Typically, artists launch a lead single and music video ahead of a major tour announcement, however Rihanna's ANTi era isn't typical. She released three singles earlier this year, "FourFiveSeconds" featuring Paul McCartney and Kanye West, "American Oxygen" and "Bitch Better Have My Money" and left us wondering what direction she's most comfortable pursuing. It appears the club banger, "BBHMM," is the fan-favorite and she'll surely release a single with the club-atmosphere fans are most familiar with. That just leaves us the question... WHEN?
According to fansite Rihanna Diva, the song is out Friday, though rival fansite Rihanna Daily begs to differ.
We just got confirmation from Rihanna's french label that the new single will be released this friday!

While we're not 100% whether the song drops Friday, word on the street for the last two weeks says the entire album will land exclusively on TIDAL come Nov. 27 followed by a world-wide release the week after.
Where there's smoke – there's fire.
Rihanna recently launched ANTIdiaRy.com for fans to stay up-to-date on the latest Riri music news, plus her team signed a $25 million deal with Samsung to promote the record. Fans were bombarded with Rihanna advertising at the American Music Awards this past Sunday.
If you're to take anything away from this post, something drops Friday.
