Rihanna has had a big couple of months. In July she dropped the monstrous video for "Bitch Better Have My Money," and then her collaborations with Puma finally materialized. Shortly after, in late September, she covered The Fader's 100th anniversary issue, a feat she followed up with another cover story for Vanity Fair. All along though we've been wondering about her next album. Now, it finally looks like we have some news.
Rihanna is currently hosting an event at a gallery in Los Angeles that seems to be teasing some details and the album artwork for her next release, which is reportedly titled ANTI. The gallery reportedly features large braille installations that visitors were beckoned to engage with while blindfolded.
Check out some Tweets and a video about the event and the just-unveiled artwork below:

Heavy red motif. Guests were handed red ribbons, there's a ton of red balloons in one room and one of the covered art pieces is in red #r8— Gerrick D. Kennedy (@GerrickKennedy) October 8, 2015
