John Glass, official song producer/writer for ANTI, just posted a video on YouTube of 1:04 minutes in which he leaks a snippet of Kiss It Better. He turned to his Twitter (https://twitter.com/GlassJohn) earlier to express his anger, because he was done dealing with all the scrapped release dates for ANTI and other producers(Travis Scott mostly) who're constantly trying to change Rihanna's mind about the album and the direction it's taking. He mentions how the album was postponed multiple times already (whilst being "finished") and that it should've gotten a release this Christmas.
He posted the snippet because he believes the song is perfect and that Rihanna should realize that too. He wants her to stop being doubtful and put it on the album.
Worth noting; the snippet contains vocals by Bhasker, not Rihanna's. He tweeted "of course she sounds better than Bhasker on it... and well i didn't wannna give the finished version away.. i'll let Her do that"
While I am typing this update, the Twitter rant is still going strong.

@Moderators: Sorry for the messy news update, but this is one of the only interesting things happening around ANTI's release, since this actually involves some real news.
Description says the singles didn’t do well? Looking at the number of Spotify plays alone – I would say the three singles have, commercially at least, been doing great.
i wrote as expected, i would say that’s a big difference. doesn’t mean they weren’t or aren’t. personally i love the songs.
FourFiveSeconds was a Top 5 hit in the US, went Double Platinum already. BBHM$ went Top 15 and Platinum, sounds pretty successful to me.
They had some really, and i say really high expectations of those singles if they say the singles arent as succesful as they hoped
Fake leaks have already surfaced, please be careful out there.
Let’s hope that this time it’s coming for real! :/ I hope she won’t let us down once again & that the wait was worth it!
dont hold your breath.. we just gotta wait and see
We are on the right way!!!! I hope ANTI is released soon since they madre a trailer of it
Next one is Frank´s album THE FUCKING HOLY GRAIL OF MUSIC NOWADAYS
A single is set to be released on friday nov 27 alongside the unlocking of level R2 in ANTidiaRy and lets hope the album will drop
tomorrow a new stage in ANTidiaRy THE STUDIO… lets hope for more
Well at this point I don’t know what to say… ?ANTIcipating got me nowhere?? f*** that
Second room has opened in ANTIdiary.
We can hear Lady Gaga’s and Big Sean’s voices in one of the videos!
why did the release get pushed back to january?? uh
Room 4 has opened featuring a sample of a collaboration with Woodkid.
I really don’t know, where they took the date of release 12/31/2015 …. ?? Still isn’t official release date there.
yeah they have 12-31-2025 as a release date and i thought to myself that cant be right i mean come on thats years away
Exactly. Indicating this album is taking forever just to get a release date, it might as well be that date.
Heyyy!! I really want to be this true.. But the waiting is really f****** s*** :-/
That’s why I changed it to this date haha. I feel like Rihanna really don’t care about her fans and do everything she can to drive them/us crazy. I don’t really know how to feel about it.
Come thru Queeeeen, the Navy awaits.
I hope the album gets low sales because that would mean that the album is actually good, not superficial and actually some effort was put in unlike like most of her previous album releases. ;)
Go Rihanna, I can’t wait for the full “Higher” song and I hope more songs like Four Five Six will be present. :3
I think the @themaxynator added Twitter updates from Glass John was exactly what we needed. Thanks for sharing…
@mojib Wait so I wasn’t supposed to make a news item like that? I would say it’s a pretty big happening considering the lack of any Anti news lately…
@themaxynator I’m saying it was a great addition! :)
Oh cool thank you :) It almost seemed like sarcasm to me haha. But I like this site a lot, so I want to contribute to it as well :D
How do you know that the album will be released on the january the 4th ?
They don’t know. It’s a temporary date, because the whole album is a mess so far.
What about room 7,8 ?
Well, that’s also impossible to predict, but between most rooms there’s 4-9 days between.
I reset the release date.
Remember that dates are set by members, not by me as a site admin. But it goes to show that we need to add a source to release date submissions in the future.
when she will release that album? 12 days is gone after the last room she released. i can’t wait. 2 more rooms left.
Room 7 is floating around on the internet and the teaser of room 8 i think …
Rihanna’s room 7 is unlocked. You can check out on the official website antidiary.com
One room to go! :D
guys chill! what makes u sure it’s on feb 12? If Rihanna didn’t confirm it her herself, it ain’t happenin’… as for the delay of room 8 and the album we can all thank the trash “TRASHY SCOTT” :) for telling Rih that the album isn’t good enough…
i can’t wait anymore… i need this album ASAP
YAS! The first single is dope!
It was streaming on Tidal but then was taken down. A download of the album is being passed around.
Seems like a big mistake… A big, big mistake.
Isn’t this the second time a major release has leaked on TIDAL?
Wow, I had no idea her stuff was this good
It is now available to download for free at Rihanna’s site with the code ANTI.
