Best albums of 2016: No 7 Anti by Rihanna

Critics hailed it as the messiest album release campaign in recent memory. Rihanna’s eighth record was delayed, leaked and eventually given away, with the singer hosting an incongruous event in which she unveiled braille poetry in between. The press rejoiced when it looked as if one of the biggest artists on the planet had sold only 1,000 copies in a week, with tabloids suggesting that Rihanna’s muddled head – from a much publicised fondness for weed – had caused Anti’s alleged flop.
