Rihanna‘s new music is going to land in 2020, the songstress has confirmed. Fans of the Fenty Beauty queen have been waiting for what feels like eternity for some new songs, but don’t sweat – we’ve got all the info on Rihanna’s ninth album right here.
Rihanna is releasing a new album sometime in 2020 and we are READY.
After unleashing her double-platinum eighth album in 2016, Rihanna has dominated the charts worldwide with hits including the juggernaut Drake-assisted ‘Work’, ‘Needed Me’ and many more.
Despite not releasing any solo material in 2017, Bad Gal has been slaying the fashion and beauty industries, as well as supporting her many causes and featuring on a number of chart-topping singles.
While the official title of Rihanna’s ninth studio album is currently unknown, fans have been affectionally calling it ‘R9’ since the release of her previous album, ‘ANTI’.
During a recent interview, Rihanna confirmed that she does not yet have a title for the album, but joked that she’s considering naming it ‘R9’ thanks to the name her loyal Navy have given it.
“I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’” she said. “How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?”
“To be continued,” RiRi teased when asked about her new album. “I like to antagonise my fans a little bit… Well, they antagonise me, too! So they get it right back.”
At the launch of her new Savage X Fenty line during New York Fashion Week in September 2019, Rihanna confessed that her loyal fans would have to wait a little longer to hear the album.
At the end of January 2019, Rihanna’s producer The Dream confirmed her new album is almost finished. “She’s cooking, she’s about done,” he said. “She’s about done. Super close.”No tracklist has been confirmed yet. Yet In February 2020, Rihanna reassured fans that new music is on the way, posting that she was in the studio with The Neptunes.
We expect the album and tour dates to be announced soon and we can’t wait! HURRY UP RiRi !!
