Rihanna reveals past struggles while recording her Anti album on year anniversary

Rihanna began working on her Anti album back in 2014. And on Saturday the 28-year-old singer revealed her past struggles as she celebrated the one-year anniversary of when the album was released on January 28, 2016.

‘When I started making this album I never would have imagined how much of a challenge the process would be,’ she began in a lengthy caption alongside a photo of the album’s cover she posted.

‘I was numb for a while… numb to all the bulls**t and numb to all the good sh*t. 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!’

In a series of raw snapshots taken by celebrity photographer Dennis Leupold, the Barbadian beauty took to Instagram and gave her fans a behind the scenes glimpse into the making of the hit EP.

The Grammy winner and her team rented a Malibu mansion for several months and focused on writing and recording the tracks.

‘Every room, every couch, every corner, there were musicians everywhere, the whole Fenty Corp, the best times!’ the Diamonds hit-maker continued. Check out the¬†behind the scenes Photos below:
