Anti premiered on Tidal (which Rihanna is a part owner) on Wednesday night. The entertainment platform is also celebrating the 1 million downloads for the project. In addition, Anti was reportedly streamed over 13 million times in 14 hours.

The deluxe digital version of the album is now available on Tidal and iTunes today (January 29). A physical copy is expected to be released in the future.
