It seems like forever ago that Rihanna confirmed she’d be releasing her reggae-inspired album - a tribute to her island roots - and fans are starting to get impatient (us included). Rihanna has taken notice of her fanbase’s growing frustration and wails of “But you promiseddd” and finally gave us a little more information about when we can expect new music – though we’re afraid it’s not good news.
She’s definitely releasing new music – the tricky bit is we don’t know when. And it seems she doesn’t either. At the launch of her visual autobiography, the fashion icon shared that she’d definitely give us information about the new album… if she had any. Oh. She went on to say that she hasn’t been able to spend time in the recording studio as she’s been busy with her super-successful beauty brand, luxury fashion line and Savage x Fenty show. Well, we’d say that’s a pretty good excuse.
There was a little glimmer of hope, though. Rihanna did share that she’s already thinking about her 10th album, so maybe she’ll surprise us and drop them both at the same time? Here’s hoping.
