Rihanna announced the release of two tracks for radio airplay on Wednesday (30Mar16) in typically racy fashion.
The pop superstar is giving fans the chance to listen to Needed Me and Kiss It Better, two songs from her hit album Anti, on radio stations from 7am U.S. Eastern Standard Time (EST).
In addition, a promotional video for Kiss It Better will be released on the video hosting service Vevo at noon U.S. EST on Thursday (31Mar16), and the Barbadian singer teased explicit stills from the video on her Instagram account.
The images, showing Rihanna completely naked underneath a gossamer thin sheet left little to the imagination, with her nipples are clearly on display.
The announcement was made by the star via social media, where she wrote, “#KISSITBETTER and #NEEDEDME will both be serviced to radio tomorrow morning at 7am EST. #ANTI.” She later posted the pictures of the forthcoming video, teasing the day of the video release, “#KISSITBETTERVIDEO #THURSDAY #NOON on VEVO!”
Rihanna is currently riding high in the U.S. charts, with her previous single, Work a collaboration with Canadian rapper Drake spending its sixth week at number one on this week’s (beg28Mar16) Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Her album, Anti, is currently at number three in the Billboard 200 chart after two separate stints at number one since its release in January (16).
The singer’s tour supporting the album has also proved a hit with the stars, despite early production troubles which delayed its start by two weeks, as stars including models Irina Shayk, Naomi Campbell and John Mayer were all seen taking in her concert at the Barclays Centre, New York on Sunday (27Mar16).
Rihanna will complete a second date at the Brooklyn venue on Wednesday night (30Mar16) before touring venues across North America until June (16), when she leaves for Europe.
