Rihanna celebrated a very special day on Saturday. January 28 marked the one-year anniversary of the release of “ANTi,” Rihanna’s 2016 offering. The album spawned a world tour and upped the ante in her feud with Beyoncé. As she looks ahead to 2017, Rihanna took time to look back at her platinum release with over two dozen throwback photos from behind the scenes of the record’s production.
“When I started making this album I never would have imagined how much of a challenge the process would be,” Rihanna wrote in a lengthy Instagram caption. “I was evolving in the midst of making a body of art that was supposed to reflect who I was in that moment, yet it was the very answer I didn’t have!”
