RIHANNA Finally Dishes About Next Album "R9"
Life has been unbearably sad and boring without new music from Rihanna. We aren't even sure if 2019 will be the year that she puts an end to the torturous wait, but at this point, we're ready to devour anything that will bring us closer to the multi-hyphenate artist's ninth studio album.
In a recent interview with T magazine, Riri confirmed that her upcoming record is reggae-infused. And although she didn't throw out an exact release date still, she admitted that it would most likely be titled R9. "So far it’s just been R9, thanks to the Navy," she revealed. "I'm about to call it that probably, 'cause they have haunted me with this 'R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?' How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?"
As for the rumored collaboration with Lady Gaga, Riri said that it's "not in the books right now, but I’m not against it." She also squashed rumors of a possible musical reunion with Drake, saying "Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure." Read the interview in full here.
