After more than a year of rumors and speculation, Rihanna returned Wednesday night with ANTI, her long-awaited follow-up to 2012's Unapologetic. The pop star was prompted to release the album on Jay Z's high-quality streaming service Tidal after it was accidentally uploaded to the service's servers. The album, which critics say is a left turn that leaves out any overt dancefloor hits, will stream exclusively on Tidal for one week and is available for purchase there; the deluxe version hits Tidal on Friday, January 29.

Tidal subscribers can listen to ANTI here; there are also limited free downloads of the album with the code "ANTI" here.
