Surprise! If you were waiting for new Rihanna songs then you're in luck - as 'Umbrella' star RiRi has announced that the release of her hotly-anticipated eighth album Anti, and it's coming on Friday. 

The 'Stay' star may sing 'Bitch Better Have My Money, but she has an estimated net worth of $120million from perfume and other pursuits. Expect that to grow exponentially with the surprise end to the three-and-ahalf year wait for the follow-up to Unapologetic, when she drops LP No.8 Anti on Friday 27 November. 

Teen Vogue report that ads aired during last night's AMA's suggest that album will be coming exclusively through Tidal on Friday, before dropping everywhere else worldwide on 4 December. 

Not only that, but RiRi is reported to have signed a $25million deal with Samsung who'll be supporting the campaign, who have launched a video diary website called ANTIdiaRy which features a tour of a mansion complete with clips of new music, snaps of Rihanna's past and insight into the making of the record.

There's also this bloke called The Keyholder on Twitter who's helping tease stuff: 

There has been much anticipation around the LP - after the sleeve was revealed and said to 'change the history of album art', the 'Bitch Better Have My Money' video caused quite the controversy, and with Charli XCX telling Gigwise about her appearing on the record.
