It’s been three whole years since Rihanna released her last album Unapologetic, making it the longest gap between albums in her career. But alas, the wait is finally over.

RiRi will be dropping her eighth studio LP, Anti, exclusively on TIDAL on Black Friday –  November 27 – before becoming available everywhere on December 4.  Coinciding with Anti‘s release, Rihanna signed a $25 million deal with Samsung, the official sponsors of both the album and its supporting world tour.

Rihanna and Samsung recently launched a mobile website called ANTIdiaRy, offering insight into her creative process through a series of panoramic images meant to illustrate different eras of her life. The website also links to an Instagram account called @iamthekeyholder featuring sketches of the young bad gal in various cities. Another plus is that the site offers short snippets of new music.

While a tracklist has yet to be revealed, this past year, RiRi has treated us to some banging tracks – including “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “American Oxygen” and “FourFiveSeconds” – which have pretty much confirmed that Anti was well worth the wait.

To pump you up for Friday’s big release, watch RiRi’s blood-soaked video for “Bitch Better Have My Money” below and meet one of the video’s stars, Sita Abellan.

Following the album’s release, Rihanna will be embarking on a massive world tour accompanied by The Weeknd, Big Sean and Travi$ Scott, with tickets going on sale December 3. Check the Anti‘s tour schedule below.
