How's that for a last minute gift, hah? Seemingly, if a tweet by the Today Show is to be believed (there is a ? over it considering they deleted the tweet in question), Rihanna is releasing her eighth studio album today JUST in time for Christmas. It's cutting it fine, but it's still an option.

Reporting on the Today Show's original tweet, which read "@Rihanna has an extra special Christmas present for her fans, releasing her 8th studio album "Anti" tomorrow", UK.Complex.com said: "The album comes as a surprise, but is not all that unexpected since RiRi is going on a major tour for the project in 2016. Not a lot of details are known about the album right now, as Rihanna has had her fans on sort of a scavenger hunt for the last month with her "AnTi Diary" website run via Samsung."
Now that the Aussie radio station's tweet has since been deleted, here's a theory from The Global Grind. It "implies that they could have dropped a news bomb that they weren’t supposed to. It could also mean that they put out wrong information, as RiRi’s management team has consistently denied any reports of when her album is dropping. Either way, tomorrow could be the day fans finally get Anti, and we know that the Rihanna Navy is ready for it."
Yes, but the likelihood of you getting a physical copy shoved into a stocking in time for tomorrow morning is looking slim.
