Rihanna Teases New Album ‘R9’ In Instagram Video
“R9” may be ready – but badgalriri ain’t ready to share it with us just yet.
It’s hard to believe that we haven’t had new music from Rihanna in almost 4 years, since the release of album ‘Anti’ in 2016 – whilst she has built both her fashion and cosmetic brands into empires of the industry. Whilst fans across the globe eagerly await the release of her 9th studio album, the Fenty queen has blessed us in the meantime with her Savage x Fenty fashion show, her visual autobiography ‘The Rihanna Book’ and even her film with Donald Glover ‘Guava Island’. But as we enter a new decade, it’s hardly surprising that her Navy, are crying out for new material.
She has now taken to trolling her fans on social media, hinting at an album but never giving any more information regarding when to expect it – which has been the case once again in her recent Instagram video:
Although a release date for the album appears to still be WAY too much to ask from Riri, here’s what we do know about R9: the album is said to go back to her Barbadian roots, with a heavy Reggae/Dancehall influence, it is set to feature collaborations with some of the biggest DJs in the world and is supposedly being realised this year (you’ve got 7 days and counting Ri)!
Hopefully we go into 2020 listening to her 10-track ninth studio album, but until then we will continue to wish for a Christmas miracle.
