AceShowbiz - Everyone thought Rihanna would release her new album "Anti" on Christmas Day, but that did not happen. Although Rihanna never confirmed the release date, disappointed fans started speculating on the reason behind the album's delay and put the blame on her boyfriend Travis Scott (II).
Songwriter Glass John, who apparently worked on the record, ignited the fire when he ranted on Twitter about Scott's influence at Rihanna's label Roc Nation. John said he wrote "Kiss It Better" for the album and Scott, who produced the record, was "wasting valuable studio time trying to come up with a song that can top 'Kiss It Better' and he cannot because it's the beat damn song."
"Anti" has spawned three singles, "FourFiveSeconds", "Bitch Better Have My Money" and "American Oxygen". John also said the album was originally set for November release before it got delayed. "The album would've been out on Christmas. If Travis hadn't convinced Rihanna that wasn't good enough. What has he produced to say this!!?!!!" John also pointed out Scott's attempt to divert Rihanna from her pop root to "all trap ghetto."
Scott has decided to respond to the accusations via Snapchat. "Don't believe this s**t," he wrote along with a screenshot of the original story by HotNewHipHop.com.
Rihanna has not said anything about the reason behind the delay but she had confidence about her new album. "It's going to be great, that's all I'm going to tell you and I'm excited about it. I try to battle myself and outdo everything I've done and that's been the hardest thing to do," she said as quoted by CBS.
