Don’t stop the music, Rihanna. The 31-year-old recently took to Instagram to promote her new Fenty Beauty bronzer and let’s just say fans clearly had something else on their minds — the album hold up. “Ok now can you please go back to singing,” a fan wrote. Don’t worry, folks RiRi obviously did not hold back, and responded: “I love how y’all tell me what to do. It’s great.” However, the comments did not stop there. Another fan chimed adding: “Annoyed. We want the album sis.” The “Umbrella” singer fired back once again by writing: “Well this is bronzer.’’
Rihanna’s last album Anti was released in 2016, so we understand why the Rihanna Navy is a little frustrated. But honestly, fans should simmer down due to the fact that the Grammy winner’s album drop is supposed to be coming pretty soon. Multiple sources recently confirmed to Us Weekly that the “Work” songstress recently finished recording her ninth album, but that “mastering and more behind-the-scenes stuff” are still in the works. This definitely should not come as a surprise to top Rihanna fans considering on Friday, December 22 she confirmed via IG that her new album was dropping in 2019. Days before, Kuk Harrell, a vocal producer, confessed on Instagram live that the “Kiss It Better’’ singer’s new album is “incredible.”
As for what exactly will be included in the album? Well, we will have to wait and see! Sources close to the project admitted to Rolling Stone that the Barbados native has been working on an album that is meant to explore her Caribbean roots. “Every artist, every producer, every songwriter in Jamaica or of Jamaican descent has been working on [Rihanna’s album] and has little snippets of publishing or production credits on it,” a source close to the project confessed. Another dancehall producer also told the magazine that “[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers.”
The A-lister first brought attention to this amazing idea during an interview with Vogue in June 2018, when she discussed the possibility of a reggae-themed album. The article also revealed that Supa Dups, a Jamaican-born producer, who has previously worked with Drake was “one influence” on the album. We can’t wait to hear it, but for now, we’re perfectly happy with some killer makeup.
