Ok, so Christmas came and went with no Rihanna album (it was previously expected to drop on the holiday due to a now-deleted tweet by Australia’s Today Show account). And after six “rooms” of her symbolism-themed ANTIDiary series, still nothing. But now we may have some insight as to why thanks to songwriter Glass John; Glass is one of the writers on ANTI on the alleged song “Kiss It Better,” who was vocal on Twitter about the album’s delay. And what’s the reason for the delay, according to Glass? Rihanna’s rumored boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott.
According to Glass’ tweets (where he playfully calls Rihanna his “wife”), ANTI was supposed to rollout in November, then on Christmas Day. Glass wrote, “travis keeps putting doubt in her mind.” “The album would’ve been out on Chrismas. If Travis hadn’t convinced Rihanna that it wasn’t good enough. What has he produced to say this!!?!!!” “I'm fighting to get "Kiss It Better" to the world… But Travis Scott has been delaying it,” he continued.
Travis is producing the album, and Glass says it was Travis who made Rihanna put out “BBHMM,” when the original plan was for “Kiss It Better” to be the next single. “He’s wasting valuable studio time trying to come up with a song that can top ‘Kiss It Better’ and he cannot because it’s the best damn song.” Glass claims Travis is trying to “trap up” Rihanna’s sound to, distance her away from her poppy chart-toppers.
A few more of his tweets read:
“Rihanna is HIGH LEVEL DESIGN AND DOESNT NEED TO BE AT GHETTO UNSAFE CLUBS,” Glass tweeted. AND @trvisXX I AM GOING TO BEAT YOUR ASS IF YOU EVER PUT MY WIFES LIFE IN DANGER…”
“It was suppose to drop on my birthday 11.6th so then me and her could tell the world about us,” he continued.
“I am so ready to just leak the demo… out of respect for the fact that it's the best song my wife has ever done in her life.”
“And Roc nation keeps listening to Travis because they think he is a genius… I DONT FUCKING SEE IT THO.”
“I AM VERY SOBER… AND JUST MAD BECAUSE OF THIS LAME”
“I AM ON THE PHONE WITH MY WIFE RIGHT NOW.”
“We are on a conference call with jay-z trying to convince him to release it…”
“HE WANTS TO FEEL THE DEMAND FOR HER ALBHM GO UP.”
“I TOLD HER THE ALBUM WAS DONE BEFORE WE WENT TO SANTA BARBRA WITH TRAVIS”
“She has this amazing song by Pharrell it's a high level design type of song… You gotta hear the drums and the beat it's stupid.”
“It was Travis idea to name the album "ANTI"… I told My wife why would you want people to see ANTI-RIHANNA…”
“My wife can't tweet or speak out as freely as i can… Even tho i tell her to just so her the world loves you.youre brilliant.”
“and personally i don't deal with paparazzi.. I just tell her I'll meet you afterwards it's cool.”
“if i wanted attention i would just follow Behind Her when we leave the club… But that's not my focus..”
“IM BREAKING RULES RIGHT NOW AND I PROBABLY WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THEM.. BUT I CANT ROCK WITH THIS.. I LOVE HER TOO MUCH AND IT HURTS”
Glass dropped a one-minute snippet of “Kiss It Better” demo, which has since been deleted.
Could this be some love triangle, jealousy mess that has her album tied up??? Rihanna and Travis Scott have yet to publically address the allegations, but sounds plausible to me! Glass clearly has “a thing” for Rihanna. The question is, does Rihanna have a “thing” for him?
All this behind-the-scenes drama smh.
