Yesterday marked a year since Rihanna’s most anticipated album ANTI released. We celebrated the #ANTiversary by sharing the best moments from the era and finished the day by listening to the entire album together. Rihanna shared some photos herself, from the making of ANTI and added a very emotional caption:

Looking back to 1 year ago…. I released my most anticipated album to date #ANTi ….When I started making this album I never would have imagined how much of a challenge the process would be. I was evolving in the midst of making a body of art that was supposed to reflect who I was in that moment, yet it was the very answer I didn’t have! I was numb for a while…numb to all the bullshit and numb to all the good shit. But I was determined not to settle for what everybody thought this should be, or when they thought it should come, or how! I stuck to it until I felt something again!

And I remember like it was yesterday, the night it happened! We rented a house in Malibu for a couple months and did MUSIC! Every room, every couch, every corner, there were musicians everywhere, the whole Fenty Corp, the best times! 1 night we vibing, TyTy made a comment, and I got super sensitive, lolol! Then I thought “hold up, did I just feel a way?? Did I just FEEL???!!” It was in that moment that I trusted myself, trusted my ear, trusted my gut, trusted the way that my music made me FEEL!!! I had no idea how it would be received, neither was that something I considered. I just wanted to make a body of work that felt right!

And to the most beautiful, loyal fans that anyone would kill to have on their team, you were right there by my side waiting (im)patiently the entire time! To have the support of so many, with the enthusiasm that we shared for Anti felt like such a reward! I cannot thank you enough for loving her the way you do! And to every single person that was a part of the process from sound to aesthetic, thank you and I cherish you! May the Glory be to God!
I actually hate long captions, I know u can’t tell but i don’t care!

Rihanna’s Anti moves back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, collecting its second week at the top. The diva’s set earned another 54,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 17, according to Nielsen Music.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new April 2-dated chart (where Anti is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, March 22.

Anti is Rihanna’s second No. 1 album (following her previous studio effort, Unapologetic, in 2012) and her first to spend more than one week at No. 1.

Of Anti’s total units for the week, 17,000 were in pure album sales. The rest of its sum — a sizable 69 percent — was comprised of TEA and SEA units, thanks to the popularity of its tracks (like the smash single “Work,” which has spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart).

Rihanna’s Drake-assisted “Work” has entered the Hot 100’s top five, rising 7-4 in its third week. The song is Rihanna’s 20th top five Hot 100 hit, making her just the eighth artist to hit that milestone.

Here is an updated look at the acts with the most top five Hot 100 hits:

29, The Beatles
28, Madonna
26, Mariah Carey
24, Janet Jackson
21, Elvis Presley (whose career predated the Hot 100’s 1958 launch by two years)
20, Michael Jackson
20, Rihanna
20, Stevie Wonder

(Among artists with the most Hot 100 top 10s, Rihanna ranks in a tie for fifth place.)

Partly powering the ascent of “Work,” the song zooms 41-4 on Streaming Songs (15 million, up 222 percent) and 16-1 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (13 million, up 209 percent, becoming her third No. 1 on the tally), with the track’s arrival on Spotify, which accounts for 47 percent of its overall streams, heavily pushing its rise.

“Work” also charges 20-13 on Radio Songs (63 million, up 23 percent), winning the Hot 100’s top Streaming and Airplay Gainer awards. On Digital Songs, the single rises 3-2 (113,000, down 27 percent).

“Work” also leads the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a second nonconsecutive week.
