  • On whether or not she's looking for a relationship: "My schedule is so crazy right now. It’s definitely going to be a challenge when I do decide to pursue a relationship . . . but I have hope!”
  • On why she wanted to take a break after her Unapologetic tour in 2013: "I wanted to have a year to just do whatever I want artistically, creatively. I lasted a week.”
  • On her new sound: "I just gravitated toward the songs that were honest to where I’m at right now. It might not be some automatic record that will be Top 40. But I felt like I earned the right to do that now."

  • On her rumored feud with Beyoncé after "Formation" dropped the same week as Anti: "Here’s the deal. [The media] just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”
  • On how her fast-paced singing on "Work" is a nod to her home country of Barbados: "You get what I’m saying, but it’s not all the way perfect, because that’s how we speak in the Caribbean.”
  • On her new song "Higher": "[It's like] a drunk voice mail. You know he’s wrong, and then you get drunk and you’re like, ‘I could forgive him. I could call him. I could make up with him.’ Just, desperate. We just said, ‘You know what? Let’s just drink some whiskey and record this song.’"
