1 million downloads for Rihanna’s album “Anti”
Rihanna’s new album reached its millionth download within less than 15 hours.
The milestone marks a major boon for Jay Z’s music streaming service Tidal, which snagged exclusive rights to the “Anti” premiere.
Tidal offered a million free downloads with Rihanna’s sponsor Samsung which were snatched up within 15 hours.
Each download came with a 60-day free Tidal trial.
“1 MILLION in under 15 hrs!!!!,” she tweeted. “Thank u to all my fans and @samsungmobileus.”
The song was also streamed 13 million times within the first 14 hours.
A deluxe version of “Anti” that includes three new songs also dropped Friday.
