Rihanna released her latest album Anti exclusively on Jay-Z owned streaming music service, Tidal on Thursday. As part of the promotion, mobile phone giant Samsung gave away one million free download codes on a first-come, first-serve basis that comes in with a 60-day free trial to Tidal.
The influx of users was tremendous and all of the free codes were used up by the early afternoon. Those who are not fortunate to get a code can still stream the album for free or buy the album as a download for $11.99. According to a Tidal spokesperson, Anti was streamed more than 13 million times during the first 14 hours.
