Now…Barbados beauty Rihanna should’ve known better than to make us all wait this long on her greatly anticipated album then tease us with the title “Anti.”
Anti what? Short for “anticipating?”
Anti-meaning: “eef you all…hurry up and wait?”
But low and behold (last month) when she dropped the first single for “Anti”–with its deep Caribbean-based drum underneath her hot vocals-complete with the rap flow of one of the hottest rappers whom she makes great music with, we had every right to expect this Barbados gyal would do nothing less than wind-up-her-waist to the beat.
We know she can do that (she “worked” us here, On “Rude Boy”):
Unfortunately, though, we just got a hot song and no visual. No Rihanna and Drake Chemistry we had come to know and love.
“Mi’fi wan couf that gyal,” in patois, I said to myself. Because I know that while the streets have been waiting on at least one single from Rihanna’s anticipated “Anti,” let’s just say we kinda-sorta didn’t appreciate getting it without the digital drop, too.
Now press play:
