The world has been getting impatient waiting for the Barbados babe to drop her new album, which was set to be released last November. The album, ANTI, has been delayed frequently and fans are starting to demand answers! The much-awaited record is the follow-up to Rihanna's 2012 album Unapologetic, which topped charts.
Finally the reason behind the delay has come to light; songwriter Glass John claims Rihanna's rumoured boyfriend and co-producer, Travis Scott is to blame.
In a major Twitter rant, John blamed Scott’s influence at Riri’s label as the reason for the album’s delay.
John, who wrote the track called Kiss It Better, tweeted that Scott is "wasting valuable studio time trying to come up with a song that can top Kiss It Better and he cannot because it's the beat damn song".
THE ALBUM WOULD'VE BEEN OUT ON CHRISMAS. IF TRAVIS HADNT CONVINCED RIHANMA THAT WASNT GOOD ENOUGH . WHAT HAS HE PRODUCED TO SAY THIS!!?!!!— GLASS (@GlassJohn) December 27, 2015

Fans are still hoping the album will be released later this week in time for New Year's. No comments on the authenticity of John's claims have been made by Rihanna or her label.
