  2. FourFiveSeconds is awful and by far the worst of the three pre-Anti singles.
  3. I'm not even exaggerating when I say I hate thinking about the entire lead up to ANTI's actual release. It's all legitimately traumatic.

    Everything from FourFiveSeconds' release to Bussy Forest, to that event at the art gallery where she revealed the cover and like a poem or whatever and then peaced out. It gives me hives still.

  5. My hunty sending me Rihanna tour tea from around the time FFS was out was also
    Thank god they cancelled everything once Kanye team were kicked off the project.

    Not that the EMPTi tour was better...

    ffff the production values of the EMPTi tour when it reached stadiums in the UK were horrifying. Ma'am those are Poundland inflatables.
  7. I was high on painkillers (post-surgery) for most of December 2015 and honestly couldn't tell you what actually happened and what was imagined by my drugged up brain.
  8. What an iconic mess this era was. She's the pioneer of the "misfire singles + 'Is the album coming???? We just don't know!'" strategy all these new girls are using. She has a lot to answer for.
  9. American Oxygen’s existence

  10. Except Westbury Road Def Jam calls.
  11. Don't forget about her sending her stans to hunt for boxes of slime in the woods.
  12. An entire year of fuckery ending with Tidal leaking the album was really the icing on the cake.
  13. The entire Samsung campaign that had literally nothing to do with the album aside from the crown....nightmares
  14. The fucking ANTI Diaries with the rooms that made absolutely NO sense & the fact that they seemingly appeared at random with no coherent strategy.

    Everything is slowly coming back to me. Sis should've gave us some Fenty Therapy after that.
  15. Someone was taking notes.

  16. Wait wasn’t the album like free to download too from Tidal? Or am I making that up?

  17. Didn’t ANTI go platinum upon release because everyone who owned a Samsung phone received a free copy?
  18. I remember snagging a copy off of TIDAL in FLAC for free and assuming I was lucky to be one of those first 1 million users. This was not it?
  19. let’s not forget about it being reused for this fanmade video with over 250 million views:

    iconic/she’s never doing a music video herself again now
  20. nn I don't think the Coventry gig had any inflatables onstage. The one solitary moment I remember was before the gig even started - one side of the stadium going up in cheers, and the other half thought maybe she was coming on, but it was just two women fighting and people had formed a ring around them to let them fight. Then they got escorted out ddd. Then halfway through the gig I got groped by two drunk middle aged women who thought I wouldn't mind. 19 year old me minded very much.
