Rihanna teased her long-anticipated eighth studio album, Anti, by revealing the cover art at a secret launch at LA's MAMA Gallery nearly a month ago, but since then, there hasn't been a whole lot of news, until this juicy little tidbit from collaborators R. City.

"We definitely contributed to Rihanna's album," Theron Thomas of R. City told Daily Star. "We did some cool stuff and Rihanna is a cool person, good vibes, good energy," he continued, adding, "Very talented from the Caribbean just like us - we are from St Thomas".

"We have a whole new level of respect for her and she is tuned into the Caribbean vibe this time," he revealed, mentioning in the same interview that the R. City album cover is a picture of band members Theron and Timothy as kids, just like the child on the cover of Anti is a reinterpretation of an image of Rihanna taken on her first day of daycare.
