She has set her sights on making her name a staple in the music industry!
Rihanna unveiled the artwork for her upcoming eighth studio album, ANTI, at a private viewing at MAMA Gallery in Los Angeles on Oct. 8.
The 27-year-old Grammy singer revealed an oil painting by contemporary artist Roy Nachum, which features a little girl covering her eyes with a crown. The interesting part in this particular piece is the inscription of braille — a tactile writing mechanism for people who are blind— across the entire backdrop of the image.

The braille writing translates to poems by Chloe Mitchell, which will be featured throughout the album’s artwork. The Barbadian beauty is transcendent, as her album will supposedly be the first in history to include braille on it.
Rihanna’s posted about her album’s message and her Instagram post complemented the title, ANTI, with an inspirational quote that says, “By continuing to follow her own instincts, her work strives to make an impact by doing the very antithesis of what the public expects.”
