Rihanna went numb while working on 'ANTI'
Singer Rihanna says she felt "numb" as she tried to rediscover herself while working on her new album 'ANTI'.
The 'Where Have You Been' hitmaker said she went through a lot personally during the course of creating new music, reported Female First.
"Looking back to 1 year ago.... I released my most anticipated album to date #ANTi ....When I started making this album I never would have imagined how much of a challenge the process would be.
"I was evolving in the midst of making a body of art that was supposed to reflect who I was in that moment, yet it was the very answer I didn't have! I was numb for a while... But I was determined not to settle for what everybody thought this should be, or when they thought it should come, or how! I stuck to it until I felt something again!," Rihanna said.
The 28-year-old singer also opened up about the personal journey she went on throughout the recording process."I remember like it was yesterday, the night it happened! We rented a house in Malibu for a couple months and did MUSIC! Every room, every couch, every corner, there were musicians everywhere..."
"It was in that moment that I trusted myself, trusted my ear, trusted my gut, trusted the way that my music made me FEEL!!! I had no idea how it would be received, neither was that something I considered. I just wanted to make a body of work that felt right! And to the most beautiful, loyal fans that anyone would kill to have on their team, you were right there by my side waiting patiently the entire time!"
