Is Rihanna Preparing ‘ANTI’ Part 2?
Rihanna may have just released ‘ANTI’ four months ago, but let’s not forget the massive amount of time that went into creating Ri’s eighth album. It’s no secret that Rihanna had difficulty when it came to selecting the final songs for ‘ANTI’ and songs like ‘Nothing’s Promised‘ were left on the cutting room floor. A part two to ‘ANTI’ was a hush-hush topic amongst fans once the record dropped, but it was considered a far-fetched fantasy.
However, an interview with Cardo (producer for Drake, Jay-Z, Big Sean, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Kendrick Lamar) may suggest otherwise. It turns out Cardo had a song created for ‘ANTI’ that didn’t make the final cut…but he did let slip to Complex that the song will be released in the future.
There’s so many records we’ve been working on that’s about to come out. I can’t say anything beyond that, but we got a record with Rihanna. That’s all I can say. I can’t say anything more, but there’s a Rihanna and Cardo record. It’s her song…It was for ANTI, but there’s another ANTI. I don’t know if it’s official, but I know we have a record.
Take this with a grain of salt, but there could be something here. Rihanna allegedly had nearly 30 songs to choose from and it would be rather “anti” of her to follow-up the record with a side two that complimented the vibe she took a risk with on side one.
But would that ruin what the “original” ‘ANTI’ established? Should Rihanna just move on and start a new era or is extending ‘ANTI’ something that would cement her status even more? There’s a lot of questions and not many answers….we’ll just have to wait and see.
