Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ Has Been Streamed More Than 13 Million Times in 14 Hours (Updated)

Published

on

A source in the music industry tells SPIN that free downloads of the album are not being tracked by ‘Billboard’.

After a somewhat rocky initial reveal, Rihanna’s ANTI is streaming in huge numbers on TIDAL. According to a rep for the service, the Barbadian singer’s eighth album has been streamed more than 13 millions times in the 14 hours since it was officially released. The two most-streamed songs are, according to the rep, “Work” — which was released as the lead single Wednesday morning — and “Kiss It Better,” which Rihanna first teased more than a year ago on Instagram.

Another source in the industry tells SPIN that TIDAL is almost out of free downloads, as Rihanna tweeted out a code that allowed even non-subscribers to get the full record for free. All the free downloads will be exhausted within the hour, the source tells SPIN. Also of note — the free downloads are not being tracked by Billboard, which, according to the source, did not have the means to record the number of copies downloaded from TIDAL using Rihanna’s free code and count them towards the charts.

UPDATE: Rihanna later revealed that, besides the 13 million streams, the album was also downloaded 1 million times (legally) after she shared the free link.

LYRICS

[Intro: Pharrell Williams]
The truth will set you free
But first, it’ll piss you off

[Verse 1: Pharrell Williams]
Hey! Bad bitches wanna be my bae
Hey! Hold me down like the C.I.A
Hey! Side of my car, tryna see my face
Hey! Want me to beat it like the T.I. case
Oh (hey!) and if it’s heated I’ma be my face
Hey! And best believe, it’s gon’ be outrageous
Hey! Hatin’ niggas can’t believe my race
Hey! Niggas hit you with the Eli face, oh

[Refrain: Pharrell Williams]
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Scrunchin’ their eyes with your name in their mouth and
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Verse 2: Pharrell Williams]
Hey! You keep askin’ me where I’m from
Hey! I brought the borders and did I run?
Hey! Keep askin’ how I feel ’bout guns
Hey! It’s a light and dark army, which side you choose? Oh
Hey! If not now then when?
Hey! And if not me then who?
Hey! Don’t drink the Kool-Aid, my friends
Hey! I tried to tell y’all about this dude

[Refrain: Pharrell Williams]
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Hate [?] found right in their couches
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

Wait, wait a minute
Shout out to them people, people
Wait, wait a minute
P-p-p-people, people
Wait, wait a minute
Mad ethnic right now

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I get it how I live it
I live it how I get
Count the mothafuckin’ digits
I pull up with a lemon
Not ’cause she ain’t livin’
It’s just your eyes get acidic
And this here ain’t a scrimmage
Mothafucka, we ain’t finished
I told you we won’t stop
A nigga ’bout his business
Like yours, but you rented
Wave hello to the top
Nigga the Veyron glide
Tell the paparazzi get the lens right
Got the window down, top, blowin’ la
Got the hazard on, only doin’ five
You can catch me, Rih, in the new La Ferrar’

[Verse 3: Rihanna]
And the drop behind got arms
Yeah, longer than LeBron
Just waitin’ for my thumb like The Fonz
Woo! This beat tastes like lunch
But it’s runnin’ from veneers and it’s runnin’ from the fronts
But everyday, hey, we’re lemonade
I was afraid, once a nigga graduate
Would I be okay?
So I prayed and I prayed
It’s Rihanna, nigga
My constellation in space
Worst [?], done sparked dem chase, nigga

[Bridge: Pharrell Williams]
Nigga, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face

[Chorus: Pharrell Williams]
I get it how I live it
I live it how I get
Count the mothafuckin’ digits
I pull up with a lemon
Not ’cause he ain’t livin’
It’s just your eyes get acidic
And this here ain’t a scrimmage
Mothafucka, we ain’t finished
I told you we won’t stop
A nigga ’bout his business
Like yours, but you rented
Wave hello to the top
Nigga the Veyron glide
Tell the paparazzi get the lens right
Got the window down, top, blowin’ la
Got the hazard on, only doin’ five
You can catch me…

[Refrain: Pharrell Williams]
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Outro: Pharrell Williams]
You can catch me
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
