The 'Anti' artist played 'Never Have I Ever' with Ellen and George Clooney
In the game of ‘Never Have I Ever’, the R&B star admits to texting nudes and having seen a rapper naked, but spins her prop ambiguously in answer to the “sending a dirty text to the wrong person” question.
The rendition of ‘Living On A Prayer’ – chosen by Rihanna – was performed during a commercial break, but has been posted online by Ellen since the TV appearance took place earlier this week.
Watch both the game and the Bon Jovi duet via Ellen’s ‘Ellentube’ website, below:
Rihanna’s new album ‘Anti’ – released on January 28 – has done well online, but has reportedly sold only 460 physical copies in the US in its first week of release, a figure that could be linked to a number of different digital deals involving Tidal and Samsung that saw the album extremely readily available in digital form.
The singer’s eighth album was released ahead of schedule after Tidal mistakenly posted the album before its release date, blaming a “system error.“
Earlier this week, Tidal claimed it has sold 484,833 downloads of the record, in addition to the one million downloads given away as part of a deal with Samsung. The streaming service also says ‘Anti’ has been streamed 5.6million times.
‘Anti’ features new single ‘Work’ as well as a cover of Tame Impala’s ‘New Person, Same Old Mistakes’ (titled ‘Same Ol’ Mistakes’). Aside from Drake on ‘Work’, there is just one other featured artist on the record; R&B singer SZA.
2015 singles ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ and ‘American Oxygen’ do not feature on the record, nor does ‘FourFiveSeconds’, her collaboration with Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
Rihanna will play a UK and Ireland tour this summer, with dates as follows:
Ricoh Arena, Coventry (June 14)
The Principality Stadium, Cardiff (June 16)
Stadium of Light, Sunderland (June 18)
Aviva Stadium, Dublin (June 21)
