Painted with a red backdrop, the artwork, constructed by Israeli contemporary artist Roy Nachum, shows a little girl, with what appears to be a towel or skirt draped around her waist, a gold crown covering her eyes and a left balloon in her left hand.

On the work’s backdrop, you’ll also find braille with poems by Chloe Mitchell. Throughout the album, there are seven pieces of artwork, including the front and back covers. “Sometimes the ones who have sight are the blindest,” Badgalriri explained during the cover’s debut.

The pop star also shared on Instagram the definition of ANTI, which reads: A person opposed to a particular policy, activity, or idea.

The definition goes on to read: “In her collaboration with Roy Nachum, Rihanna has changed the history of album art. By continuing to follow her own instincts, her work strives to make an impact by doing the very antithesis of what the public expects.”

And in doing so, he made us cry … multiple times. Just watch the video below.

In a statement the self-professed “6god” said this video was “the most important thing” he’s ever done. We’d agree.
