At the time she registered a new song name “Phatty” and was spotted out in NYC wearing a Buju Banton T-Shirt.

Rihanna released her eight album ANTI on January 28, 2016. The project was released exclusively on TIDAL before being available on all digital platforms. ANTI peaked at No. 1 in the United States and Canada and spent a milestone 100 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart. It’s been since certified double platinum by the RIAA. Despite not dropping an album in two years, RiRi was the most streamed female artist on Spotify last year. She even earned a number one song on the Hot 100 chart when DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts” topped the chart last summer.
Rihanna previously worked with Sizzla on the remix for “Give Me A Try.” She has always been a huge fan of the reggae/dancehall legend and even named him as one of her all-time favorite artists. Aside from dominating the music scene, the “Wild Thoughts” singer has been busy building her fashion and cosmetics empire. Last year she released her Fenty Beauty line of cosmetics which includes 40 shades of makeup. The products sold out in a matter of hours after launch.
