Rihanna Celebrates 5th Anniversary of Her Hit Album Anti as Fans Await Her Next Release

Rihanna is celebrating a special anniversary.

On Thursday, the star, 32, marked the fifth anniversary of her most recent studio album Anti with a series of steamy, revealing posts she shared on her Instagram, including a video montage from some of her more sultry music visuals.

Expressing her gratitude for her supporters, the Fenty CEO wrote, "Thank you navy!"

Anti was Rihanna's eighth studio album — and last thus far, as her fans continue to highly anticipate the nine-time Grammy-winner's next release. Anti has seen incredible success since its 2016 release. The smash-hit earned the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album chart and went on to garner more than 15 billion streams, selling more than 11 million copies. Some of Rihanna's fan-favorites that largely contributed to Anti's much-deserved notoriety include "Work," "Needed Me," "Kiss It Better" and "Sex with Me."

Detailing some of their charitable values, the source added, "They both are very much about helping out in the communities where they grew up — A$AP is generous, and so is Rihanna. A$AP is known for being a great guy. Rihanna seems very happy dating A$AP."
