Following a three-year hiatus, this year she’ll release ANTI, a follow-up to 2012’s Unapologetic.

Executive-produced by Kanye West, Anti features the previously released “B***h Better Have My Money”, “FourFiveSeconds”, and “American Oxygen.” (At the time of this writing, there isn’t a release date. )

An accomplished performer, Rihanna has sold 54 million albums and 210 million digital tracks globally, making her the top-selling digital artist of all time.

Fans can visit antidiary.com on their mobile device and provide an email address to become an ANTI-an.

During Sunday night’s American Music Awards, the scavenger hunt commenced during an ANTIdiary commercial where Rihanna discovered a key left behind by some small children in an old house. The clues will start to add up on a customized IG account: iamthekeyholder.
